Nothing to do with the Band, but your thoughts reminded me of a line from Pink Floyd's "Have a Cigar". I do know and love The Band, and feel their signature style was to accompany "tough times" lyrics with jubilant instrumentals. Some of the best organ work ever recorded!
I thought I was the only one who noticed that! Nice to find some other Floyd fans... that'ss off of Wish You Were Here, my favorite album of theirs... not to get us sidetracked. May the next poster continue on where the topic was originally going?
I agree... they were definitely fantastic. And they had one of rock's very few singer-drummers. That's gotta take some very serious coordination...
