Some pretty big names in rock got together to pay homage to the legendary Band drummer Levon Helm at New Jerseyâ€™s Izod Center in October. This Tuesday (3/19), that show will be available on CD and DVD, called “Love for Levon”
The line-up featured performances from Pink Floydâ€™s Roger Waters, Joe Walsh of the Eagles, Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes, Bruce Hornsby, John Hiatt, John Mayer and many others from various genres, performing some of Levonâ€™s music, the music of The Band and more. Like the event itself, proceeds from the sales of the CDs and DVDs will support Levonâ€™s Woodstock, New York home, barn and studio, where he held his famous Midnight Ramble Sessions, the jams he performed with many famous fellow musicians.
Love For Levon (2xBlu-Ray + 2xCD) on Amazon
Pretty good timing for this release insofar as at this weekend’s Malaga Fest features Col. Bruce Hampton with members of Galactic and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band doing a Levon Helm tribute. Tune in to win tickets from 92ZEW. Click here for moreÂ info.
