Video: The Next To Last Show Of The Band Before The Last Waltz

When The Band were taped in concert at Asbury Park’s Casino Arena on July 20, 1976, there were planned being worked on for their final appearance that fall in San Francisco that would be filmed for Martin Scorsese’s documentary, The Last Waltz. With the end in sight, I wonder what goes through bands’ minds – or The Band, in this case – returning to the countless shows and sessions that got them there in the first place. Especially one that capitalized on their ever-growing holy band status. Sadness? Relief? Happiness? All three?
