The Band – Further On up the Road (Live)

The Band is one of the best bands ever. They began as Bob Dylan’s backing band in the 60s, then moved on to record their own material in the 70s. This video is from the movie The Last Waltz, a fantastic music documentary of their farewell concert, directed by Martin Scorsese. Over the course of the film, The Band plays with Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Neil Diamond, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell, the Staples Singers, Bob Dylan, Dr. John, Muddy Waters, Paul Butterfield, Ronnie Hawkins, Emmylou Harris, Ronnie Wood, and Bobby Charles. This clip features Eric Clapton, trading off on guitar solos with Robbie Robertson. This is a perfect showcase of classic blues-rock musicianship.
