[3] According to Rob Bowman's liner notes to the 2000 reissue of The Band, the album has been viewed as a concept album, with the songs focusing on the peoples, places and traditions associated with an older version of Americana.

The Band rented it and converted a poolhouse into a studio to record their second album. This is odd if, as he claims, he participated in writing it. It definitely appears to be mud, and you can give good reason for that as in this 1995 piece: Art Dudley With this group, as we've noted, it can be tough nailing the "official" lyric, as Levon, Rick and Richard did change lyrics overtime. Virgil's brother, born and bred from the fertile land of the south, cut down to grow no more. The closest he got was probably Charlotte, NC. His political shenanigans were observed by the band during their first tour of Australia.

I've never heard of a 60s musician who did their own transcription.

As a Democrat, he held several public offices and was Governor of the state from 1883 to 1887. Perhaps some more conservative voices in Southern history would find the sponsor unsurprising. By May the tenth, Richmond had fell. Tennessee, Missouri and Kentucky were wavering between the Confederacy and the Union in 1861, though Tennessee seceded promptly in a second group of four which included Virginia. Mud would only take the story so far --the battle over the land. It's a song not a poem, so the spelling is irrelevant. The Band frequently performed the song in concert, and it is included on the group's live albums Rock of Ages (1972) and Before the Flood (1974). The procession of weary soldiers became a bedraggled train, despondent and muttering, marching with churning effort in a trough of liquid brown mud under a low wretched sky. Then the French made Maximilian their puppet Emperor of Mexico. You never got this subtlety in the concert versions.The Rock of Ages version is embellishment, and when you've already got Garth Hudson on board, you don't need any other embellishment, however beautifully it's done - and the horns prologue is great stuff. the Charlie Daniels Band, Big Country, the Dave Brockie Experience, Vikki Carr, Richie Havens, the Black Crowes, Earl Thomas Conley, the Jerry Garcia Band, Sophie B.

Go back and listen to the original version, at the way a harmonica seems to sit eerily behind the vocals (actually it was Garth dubbing a Hohner Melodica on top of the sound generated by the 'accordion' stop on a Lowrey organ), listen for the little touch of distant trumpet at the end (Garth again).

The third is probably Rag Mama Rag, at least in Europe which puts Levon as lead vocalist on their three best-known songs. Though he’s seen the land around him destroyed by Union soldiers, and lost his brother to the conflict, he carries on, living through the “beautiful sadness” of the South that The Band’s Robbie Robertson says inspired the song. It is hard for me to comprehend how any Northerner, raised on a very different war than Virgil Kane’s, could listen to this song without finding himself changed. He wanted the rich farmlands so thoroughly despoiled that the place could no longer support a Confederate army; he told Sheridan to devastate the whole area so thoroughly that a crow flying across the Valley would have to carry its own rations. if ( permalink == url ) { I thought 'No wonder they invented rock 'n' roll here. It gets inside the sense of place and tradition that one finds in the South with insights of rare acuity, and it captures the emotional climax of that apocalyptic moment in Southern history, the Surrender, in a few exceptionally well-chosen words and a dignified, under-stated arrangment. Another interpretation of the line is that his money's no good because his soldier's wages are all in Confederate dollars, but that was heard as my money's no good, and it's certainly the money not my money.

Tennessee Williams just appealed to me, the flavour of writing, the titles of the things, Sweet Bird of Youth, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof - this catches my attention, partially because I had gone to the South from Canada, really ying and yang, really a big extreme, so it hit me much harder than somebody who had gone from Washington, DC down to South Carolina - I went from Toronto to the Mississippi Delta, and … I liked the way people talked, I liked the way they moved. “It was an easy stand for me to take. Lee was idolised in the south, and toured around Virginia setting up education for veterans until his death in 1870. My tattered "Big Pink/the Band" songbook says "mud"; so does the "Rock of Ages" songbook, which is probably a copy of the former (although the chord frames look different). 20 song for 1971. "Nuclear Device (The Wizard of Aus)" was written about the then Premier of Queensland, Joh Bjelke-Petersen. My vote goes toward "blood" because of the image that blood was spilled. The chorus with its Na-na-na sounds stands with Paul Simon's The Boxer as the best examples of effective use of the "la la" in rock songs (= na, na or lie, lie or whatever; it's usually transcribed as "la la") to communicate emotionally. Yes, at the expense of many lives a nation was torn apart and then only very delicately reassembled, but, as Coates argues, a focus just on what was lost ignores the value of what was gained, even if only in name: emancipation for the country’s slaves. It's not so unthinkable to interpret "Richmond" in the sense of "the Confederate Cause", rather than in the usual narrower sense of the city-as-military-objective falling. It's a remarkable song, the rhythmic structure, the voice of Levon and the bass line with the drum accents and then the heavy close harmony of Levon, Richard and Rick in the theme, make it seem impossible that this isn't some traditional material handed down from father to son straight from that winter of 1865 to today. The Taplin quote shows the song was recorded in May … no, that's being silly. Note: Commentators vary on their preference for Caine/ Cain/ Cane/ Kane. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down is a song written by Canadian musician Robbie Robertson, first recorded by The Band in 1969 and released on their self-titled second album. We had something we were going to do, and nobody came. This study of the Civil War’s literary and intellectual history, as well as its popular memory, engages the compelling question of how the United States, to an important degree, is the stories it tells itself about its Civil War and its enduring aftermath. Taking the anti-war theme (They should never have taken the very best) a little further, it was said that the impact of the film Gone With The Wind with its graphic depiction of the emotional and physical horrors of war, was a major factor in delaying the US entry into the Second World War. | | Dixie is the historical nickname for the states making up the Confederate States of America. Old-time musician Jimmy Arnold recorded the song on his album Southern Soul, which was composed of songs associated with the Southern side of the Civil War. In earlier interviews he referred to The Night they Drove Old Dixie Down as an example. The original lyrics are, "Virgil Cain is THE name and I SERVED on the Danville train. If the name Citizen Dick means anything to you, there's a chance you'll get some of these right. This serves the purpose of putting it all in one place. It's a remarkable song, the rhythmic structure, the voice of Levon and the bass line with the drum accents and then the heavy close harmony of Levon, Richard and Rick in the theme, make it seem impossible that this isn't some traditional material handed down from father to son straight from that winter of 1865 to today. I rise in defense of "mud"...not to impugn "blood", which works quite well and whose attributes have been eloquently stated by others. and LBJ, the assassination of Kennedy in Dallas, the murder of Martin Luther King, fiery Ku Klux Klan crosses. It has that ring of truth and the whole aura of authenticity. The hill farmers in the east lived on small farms where slavery was neither established nor economically viable, and there was a bias against slaveholders. But both ideas will work equally well, and I think the idea of the victors' bells tolling, once you've internalized that interpretation, is the deeper one. Others to record versions include Don Rich, Steve Young, John Denver, the Allman Brothers Band, Derek Warfield. [16] Baez later told Rolling Stone's Kurt Loder that she initially learned the song by listening to the recording on the Band's album, and had never seen the printed lyrics at the time she recorded it, and thus sang the lyrics as she had (mis)heard them.
