Read full description of the books:



One of the finest concerts I ever saw was during one of The Band's reunion tours in the early 80's with the Cate Brothers at The Stone in San Francisco, before Richard Manuel's suicide. I was in the front row and got to shake hands with Levon, Rick, and Richard, and Bonnie Raitt and Maria Muldaur came onstage at the end to sing "Willie and the Hand Jive". It was a wonderful evening. This book, on the other hand, is a bit labored, too long, and in the end rather sad since the author makes the point, again and again, that the 40+ years since the eponymous 2nd Band album have been anticlimactic and a rather sorry denouement in many ways, Levon's recent success with "Dirt Farmer" (which came out after this book was published) notwithstanding. I recommend it only for people who are from a more recent vintage and may need to know the connections that some of us who are longer in the tooth remember. In the end though, I would say buy the first two albums and maybe "Rock of Ages" and thank God that such wonderful music was ever possible.
