Here’s a rough-around-the-edges video I shot of the Caballeros’ tribute to Levon Helm: “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” A bit ironic, given the fact that Levon refused to perform the song after The Last Waltz in 1976. He was just a little pissed off that Robbie Robertson had snagged the songwriting credit on the tune, which Levon always claimed they composed together. Lotta yakety-yakking in the background of this vid. Probably that yenta Moe.
