9-20-08 The Band – The Weight

Posted by Sean on September 21, 2008

Quick post for me, too, Shanoah. I’m not quite in the mood for superlatives as you were. You posted the Supremes, I’ll just post a band… The Band, in fact. And this is probably the only song from them that most people know, The Weight.

This video’s from The Band’s performance at Woodstock. It’s an appropriate song for Woodstock, esepcially if you know anything about what it took to keep it from breaking down into complete chaos.

By the way, the reason that it’s dark is because The Band performed somewhere around 8 p.m. on August 17, the last official day (but not the last day) of Woodstock.
