Levon Helm - Dirt Farmer
This is the recent release of "The Band's" drummer Levon Helm. He has been battling throat cancer and Robbie Robertson for so many years, its good to see he has still got some music in him. Check it out here Also i believe that Levon runs like a camp thing in NY, where you can go hang with him, he'll tell stories about the music scene, etc. So if your interested here is his website. Please if you like this buy it. Levon has seen and continues to see tough times. Due to the dispute over Band royalties and medical bills. Also he does Midnight Rambles at his farm in Woodstock, so if your in the area and wanna see some old time folk music stop by, and help one of the most spirited and influential musicians in American history. This album is covers of old songs that Levon and his family grew up singing in their homes, and as one interviewer says you can "feel the dirt and feel the hot air while listening to this album."
