The Last Waltz exposed me to music that I was not familiar with. Seeing Dr. John and Muddy Waters led me in new directions in music appreciation. I saw The Last Waltz at the State Theater, when it was big and run down, at the midnight show. There was bottles rolled to the front and a contact high. Martin Scorsese did a great job with this film and the special features show how it was done. The Band toured for many years and this was to be the last concert at the Winterland, San Francisco where it all started. There is interviews and wonderful performances- concert and studio. The band plays alone and backs people such as Van Morrison, Neil Young, Neil Diamond, Joanie Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Ronnie (The Hawk) Hawkins. Great musicians such as Ronnie Wood, Ringo Starr and Paul Butterfield add to the mix. The only music documentary that I like as well is "Bob Dylan, The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration" which, unfortunately, is still available only in VHS. Martin Scorsese has directed many music documentaries, check them out at the AADL. He has a wonderful feel for music and musicians.
