Flipping the channels on the TV this afternoon my Darling Man found this program called the "Festival Express". What a find. It's a documentary on the lines of "The Last Waltz" only via railroad. Partaking in the festivities on this train ride were the likes of The Grateful Dead, The Band, The Flying Burrito Brothers (been a long time since I've thought of them)... and Janis Joplin. Waxing nostalgic we wondered, where did we put those ZigZags?
I was too young in 1970 to enjoy the whole concept and the music, but I became an avid fan later on. Here are a few of our favorite selections found on Youtube from the film:
Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel:
Of course we had to go on-line and immediately buy the movie (we already have "The Last Waltz").
