Description

"The Weight" is a 1968 song by The Band. The song appears originally on The Band's first album, Music from Big Pink. The song is cited as an original song by Bob Dylan on his website. 

Although the version by The Band was not a significant hit, it is #41 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list. Note that on the original single issue, the artist credit simply lists the names of the five members of The Band; the group name "The Band" does not appear.

In The Band's concert film, The Last Waltz, The Staples and The Band perform the song together.

=M= says: as much as I admire The Band, the Staples raise this one into the Stratosphere. Beautiful.

Looks like myspace videos have stopped working again, even on their own site. I contacted their support and reported the problem.

The lastest reply from myspace is in
Unfortunately, our tech team is only focusing on songs/videos uploaded within the last 3 years. There is no time frame of when media uploaded over 3 years ago will be fixed. We updated our player to HTML5. The videos (the few I checked on your website) are FLV files. Unfortunately, we do not offer a way to play or download these videos. I am including your email as feedback for a requested option.
I'll wait until August and then they will be deleted if not fixed by then.
