Retro Tuesday -- Some Real Rock and Soul!

From 1978's The Last Waltz, this is The Band with the Staples Singers doing a definitive version of "The Weight".

Good god, I loved me some Rick Danko (that's the shaggy headed guitar player on the left) back in the day.

So settle back, turn the speakers up REAL LOUD and let the music take you away -- p.s., That's Mavis Staples doing the second verse, I saw her a few years back at The Appel Farm Music Festival, and she still has an incredible voice.
