From The Last Waltz, Martin Scorcese’s enchanting film of The Band’s last official concert, here is The Weight(sung here with the masterful Staples Singers):

  1. Yeah those guys toured so much they could really play, and they sung it there with The Staples Singers(note to self: add to credits) who just knock it out of the park. It’s worth watching the whole film if you can – some legends in it. Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond,( Emmy Lou Harris I think?). Maybe more. I have the DVD and Im due a rewatch.
