Playing tracks by
The Band, Jimmy Vivino and Levon Helm, Levon Helm, Rick Danko & Levon Helm, Muddy Waters and more.
I started this just after Levon died when Brother Funky stopped by for a beer after National Record Store Day. Of course, I have had Levon on my mind for some time and we talked a bit about his passing. At some point, he admitted that he didn’t really have any solo Levon. Hell, you know I didn’t need much more impetus than that, especially with his birthday coming up this month.
But then the good music folks of St. Louis decided to throw a little funeral ramble for Levon and I am just back from that, the concert still buzzing in my brain. Featured there were Stickley & Canan, The Reeling Gilly, Auset Music Project, Pat Kay, John Joern and friends. I invited my buddy Jon, and his buddy Jon, and Brother Funky as well. So anyway, the Jons were too busy and Brother Funky didn’t have another permission slip to make the trip west (though we are going to see Deer Tick next week).
