A history well researched and well told
I usually don't like to hear writers and critics effuse about The Band because they invariably put this complicated group of characters on a pedestal, and burden the music with words like, "essential", "important", and "seminal". I am finding this podcast however to be a wonderful exception. The historian/host clearly loves his subjects deeply, but sticks to the story for the most part. He occasionally waxes rhapsodically about a song, track, or performance but always in the context of the larger story and never suggesting hagiography. Highly recommended. Five stars!Read full review »
