Description

On Thanksgiving Day, 1976, The Band gave its farewell concert at Winterland in San Francisco. On hand to help say goodbye to this influential rock group were some of the most acclaimed musicians of the late 1960s and '70s. This film is not only a vibrant documentary of that historic evening, but also a commentary on the rock world at the time. Most of the picture is concert footage of The Band and their guest performers -- highlighted by interviews with members of the group, who eloquently articulate their personal involvement in the history of rock and roll.

    On a Thanksgiving Night in 1976 The Band gave us everything it wanted to say about the road, the music, and the experience and did it all with a little help from their friends.

    When released, The Last Waltz set the standard for concert/documentary films. For some, like myself, prior to their farewell performances captured in this film, The Band was not really on the radar screen, aside from a few classics like "Up On Cripple Creek." This movie changed that, and made many of us realize that we'd discovered them too late. Thankfully, this performance, with plenty of guest artists, documented The Band at their best.
  • The best music documentary ever!
