I think Mavis Staples sounds terrible singing this song; her coive just doesn't fit. She's a great singer, but her grunting just doesn't get it for this song. Am I a bad person?

Great version. New wind. Just what it needed.

Beg, borrow, buy, steal this concert DVD. Some minor talent included in the movie Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchel, Neil Diamond, Van the Man Morrison, Muddy Waters, just to name drop. Two thumbs up.

The female singer is Mavis Staples. You should listen to some of her other recordings.

Who is the guest female singer on this track? She's great and adds a great element to the song.

The Last Waltz is one of the best concert films ever made and it chocked full of nuggets and guests. This is music at it's best. Watch it and listen to it and learn the potential of music. Relish It in all it's glory. Peace.

I have nothing against Cheryl Crow; but why does this song have anything to do with her??

Check out Martin Scorcese's excellent concert film & documentary "The Last Waltz" filmed in 1976, this was done live in studio with The Staples Singers. The movie is a great document of Rock & Roll History and is a veritable who's who of the best artist's of that era.

Sheryl Crow was about 14 when this was recorded in 1976. It was Mavis Staples and the Staples Singer backing up, according to Wikipedia.

It don't sound like Joni Mitchell to me. In fact it sounds like the anti-Joni Mitchell.

Is that Sheryl Crow singing with the Band?

My favorite version of this tune w/Mavis & Pops. Can't be beat.

Huh, seems like I'm in the minority here -- I really enjoyed hearing the Staples sing over this.
Report as inappropriate
I just think that because of The Band and Easy Rider are part of our DNA, we just want to dismiss any changes to the original. I felt a lot of love and mutual respect in this performance. . . . . .

I like the original version the best. Its raw edge is what makes it work; this version is too slick and self-conscio u s .
Report as inappropriate
I agree . The Bands original or without the staples doesn't add anything worth
mentiononig.
Report as inappropriate
the Original is a masterpiece. Unequalled.
Report as inappropriate
Personally I think the Band did a good enough job with this song without having the Staples Singers wailing all over it.
Report as inappropriate
Not really 'live' - there is a version that they recorded that night on the re-issue of the Last Waltz. This one was live on a sound stage with the Staple Singers. It is my favorite version of this great song.
