Sunday Toona: The Last Waltz Edition

The Last Waltz

The Cool Daddy Productions’ edition of The Complete Last Waltz is the way it was originally performed by The Band, and special guests. It is a complete, dub-free, raw soundboard of the entire Thanksgiving evening show from 1976 at Winterland. The officially released songs were re-recorded in the studio with overdubs and new mixes.

Here are four tracks that were omitted from the official Capitol release.

Acadian Driftwood – A strong version with help from Neil Young and Joni Mitchell.

All Our Past Times – Eric Clapton entered the proceedings with this number from his No Reason To Cry album and splits the lead vocal with Rick Danko.

I Shall Be Released with Bob Dylan and ensemble.

Don’t Do It – The closing song of the show and an unforgivable exclusion from the official release for that reason alone.
