Album

Love for Levon: Benefit To Save The Barn was a concert held on October 3, 2012 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The concert was a tribute to the life of The Band lead vocalist and drummer Levon Helm. The concert featured a wide variety of musicians who had worked with Helm as well as musicians who were influenced by him. Proceeds from the concert went towards keeping Helm's Woodstock barn in his family's control as well as continuing his Midnight Ramble concert series in the barn. Levon Helm was arguably the heart and soul of the Band, and his back-porch Arkansas drawl gave many of the Band's best songs their strong sense of history and character. He was a remarkable vernacular singer in a band that had three of them Rick Danko and Richard Manuel also knew how to put heart and soul into a song, and the Band, thanks in no small part to Helm, essentially put the Americana genre on the map in the mid-'60s. The star-studded benefit concert took place at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey and featured once-in-a-lifetime collaborations by friends and admirers gathered together to celebrate and honor Levon Helm. Performances included GRAMMY. On October 3, 2012, music stars and friends joined together to celebrate the life and music of Levon Helm at Love for Levon: Benefit To Save The Barn. This LOVE FOR LEVON extravaganza features 27 songs capped by a full group finale of The Weight, one of Levon's greatest moments on record. On this magical night, everyone felt the outpouring of love toward Levon. That evening, one at a time, or sometimes in pairs, music royalty took turns in the spotlight, performing songs associated with Levon Helm and the Band. This incredible benefit concert was an instant success due to the high-energy, awe-inspiring performances of such rock 'n' roll legends as Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Mark Knopfler, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Status Quo, Tears For Fears and Cliff Richard & The Shadows.

The last years of his life had Levon Helm (1940-2012) serious health problems. A tumor in his throat seemed to usher in the end of his career, but the drummer (and mandolin player) of The Band backed down. In order to pay for his medical expenses, he organized regular concerts in a barn at his home. This Midnight Rambles had an invigorating effect on helmet, which despite its throat problems even began to sing. The Grammys awarded albums Dirt Farmer (2007) and Electric Dirt (2009) were the successful result of this renaissance. After helmet in 2012 succumbed to his illness, soon followed the plan to honor him with a Midnight Ramble. Incidentally, would also be collected money to pay off his concert barn. This dvd gives a nice overview of the benefit. A star cast consisting of among others John Hiatt, Mavis Staples and Roger Waters strikes itself with great feeling material by the roots. A fitting tribute full of highlights, though the true interpreter of these songs very missed. This dvd stresses that the American folk music has lost a great man.
