Phil writes: Watching 'The Last Waltz' again I was reminded again how magnificent The Band were, never mind all the guests. I think this is my favourite Band song and one of my all-time favourite songs period. The Staples Singers are the icing on the cake here.

Phil writes: I've just seen 'The Last Waltz' on a big screen for only the second time. I've got it on DVD of course, but watching that, even on a decent TV, is not quite the same thing. This must be the best ever film of a live gig, if only because of the astonishing and extraordinarily varied line-up. Neil Diamond would not seem to be an obvious choice as a guest with The Band but this is a storming performance clearly enjoyed by all concerned.
