A review:
Having seen the performance, I can truly say that The Band is one of the greatest groups of all time. Aside from The Band, Bob Dylan stands out as a great addition to the concert, along with Van Morrison, decked out in a purple sequined outfit. Bob rocks along with Forever Young & Baby Let Me Follow you Down. The concert closes with a great I Shall Be Released, which all the musicians contributed to. This concert stands out as one of the best musical gatherings in a great while and should be listened to or watched, many times.

Notes:
In addition to the 2-CD version of the concert (described above), Rhino Records has released a four-CD box set on April 16, 2002, which features remixed tracks and unreleased material, including two jams and performances by Emmylou Harris, Van Morrison and Muddy Waters. Full details will be posted when available.

Martin Scorsese's landmark documentary of the all-star concert (previously available only on video) was released as a special-edition DVD on May 7, 2002, with storyboards, artwork, the movie trailer, TV ads, new interviews with Scorsese and Robbie Robertson, and never-before-seen footage of The Band with Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and others. Key players weigh in during two full-length audio commentaries.
