I have loved The Band and this song for over 40 years. Yes, I know the song is over 50 years old. I was late to the party. I’ve gone through periods where I was on the side of Levon Helm and periods where I’ve just enjoyed the music and realized that people and their relationships with each other are complex.

This video is cool. Most of the videos in this style are enjoyable, but I gotta tell you that I think the version from The Band’s The Last Waltz with The Staples is probably my favorite:

Nick Lowe, Mavis Staples and Wilco:

A nice version of one of my favorite songs.
