Some pretty big names in rock got together to pay homage to the legendary Band drummer Levon Helm at New Jersey’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 Floyd’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 Levon’s music, the music of The Band and more. Like the event itself, proceeds from the sales of the CDs and DVDs will support Levon’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 more info.
