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.

myspace videos cleanup

The inevitable myspace cleanup has begun. I'll have to go through 11.200+ videos manually to check and delete what is no longer working. This is gonna take a couple of weeks.

I'll try to replace/repost as much as I can after that.

Thanks for your patience.
