REVIEWS

Review by Bill Lindsey (posted on 3-Apr-2008)

I loved the Last Waltz. It's been awhile since I have seen it.I have probably seen it 3 or 4 times. I have always loved The Band. Being born in 52 all of the musicians who preformed in the film have always had a place in my heart. I have also read various books that lent a chapter or two to the making of the film, this made rewatching it more meaningful. I liked the format and sequence of preformers. I never thought Neil Diamond fit into the scene with his genre of music, to me he is way to "pop" to be in the company he was keeping that evening. Bill
