New Levon Helm Ramble Record Out Now

We love Levon Helm, he was one our favorites and we still get great joy hearing him. Our friend Ed just clued us in to this new release from Levon and crew, The Levon Helm Band -The Midnight Ramble Sessions Volume 3 which collects some of his better, more recent performances. 
You can go grab a copy of the vinyl here. Helm's voice was hit or miss in the later years but his friends more then made up for it and with the likes of Allen Toussaint and Chris Robinson helping out we are in good hands. You can stream the groups playing of "The Same Thing" from their valentines day ramble back in '09.

and "God Don't Ever Change" from a month before in '09 sung by Jimmy Vivino
 Here is also some video of Helm and company doing The Band's classic "The Weight" even if his voice was shot, his drumming was still fantastic....and gotta love Blue Lou Marini blowing that sax...
