Glide Review - Levon Helm & Willie Nelson Live 7-28-10- New Videos

 Got a new review up on Glide.

Read it right C'HERE!!!

It is Levon Helm Band and Willie Nelson live @ Radio City Music Hall, July 28th 2010.

I have posted pictures and videos of the show here in case you missed it.

I love both of these artists and they put on a spectacular show, Levon went above and beyond in my opinion, giving it his all in the vocal department, gutting out "Opehllia" and "Blind Willie McTell".  Frankly, he sang much more then I thought he would, I guess it is just a nightly crap shoot as too how much he can muster up, but I am sure the glorious venue helped get a little something extra out of him.

I also have 2 more videos of Willie's set to post, I tried to clean them up visually a bit, but it wasn't working.  They are blurry visually but so PERFECT on the audio front that I thought they were worth posting to at least hear how overwhelmingly well Nelson's voice still is at 77 years old.

The first is from a great song Nelson has recorded a few times called "We Don't Run":

Next we have a bit of the folk Willie with a combo of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken/I'll Fly Away":

I am pretty amazed how great that sounds and it certainly brings me back to last Wednesday night...

I also want to post a video of my favorite song of the night, The Levon Helm Band version of "All On A Mardi Gras Day":

Thanks to chefdiane for that video, and thanks to Willie and Levon for a timeless night of tunes.
