    I’ve seen this mash-up-musicians across the world, but two things stand out:
    It is wonderful by itself
    Doubly so because it’s good to be reminded that so much music from here has made its way across the planet, flung out across the airwaves and bootleg tapes, waiting to be caught.

    Never cared much for this toon but like the way this version was put together.

    Okay, I was moved. Almost enough to briefly believe that brotherhood-of-man fable for a few minutes.

    I want to believe in this “brotherhood of man” version…but I fear music is not enough.
    My favorite Robbie Robertson album is “Storyville”.

    RIP Levon Helm, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel

    Storyville is a great under appreciated album. I watched waiting for Levon Helm. Is he still with us?

  • Bill September 23, 2019, 7:49 PM

    You beat me Trang

    I have learned that when you say Something Wonderful, I should pay attention. This is so extraordinary. Best thing that happened to me today. Thanks.

    Oh,Good Lord. You delight us in so many ways.

    Like Ghost,never cared for this song overmuch,but this version is listenworthy.

    Ringo Starr,rocker par excellence.

    As remembered in my forever young portraiture, these and others singing with that innocence and hope that brought us a moment of joy:
    Levon Helm
    Rick Danko
    Richard Manuel

    That specific song, maybe more cryptic than intended, was part of a time just out of reach now.

    Yes, Gerard, very nice indeed!

    And to y’all who mentioned “Storyville”,thanks for letting me know that, at least on that matter, I have not been crazy all those years.

    On a more somber note, Robert Hunter is now scribblin’ lyrics for The Choir Immortal. The last coupla years have been tough on Dead alumni.

    Cheers to all! I may have to dust off the bottle of Macallan and have a wee snort in remembrance of Rabbie Burns’ aforementioned great great grandson.

    Krap Krap Borg .i have nuthin in common with this World music schlock. Get off my lawn….

  • kebie September 24, 2019, 8:19 PM

    Gave me chills to watch and listen. I think the watching may have been the greater cause.

    Something wonderful indeed.
    And to earlier commenters, I say that the brotherhood of man isn’t such a fable- if you pay close attention to your sons or brothers. Sometimes they play well together and sometimes they want to kill each other. We hope it stops short of murder, but it doesn’t always.
    It is thrilling to hear your kids playing music together when they don’t know you are listening. I have to think that something is similar is one of the reasons God hasn’t turned the lights out on the whole project yet.
