    That's my favourite version of the song. Robbie bought that guitar from Manny's, apparently.
    Its a great performance by everyone but my favorite is Rick Danko. Man he is so fun to watch, always looks like hes having the time of his life.
    I missed a chance to see him in a small club back maybe in the early 80s? (Not sure when he passed) but Ive always regretted not going.

    I saw Amy Helm (Levon's daughter) at the Four Corners Folk Festival in September. I had a recorder running, but didn't start the video on my phone until the song had started. The story she told to introduce this song brought tears to my eyes. I think she's playing Levon's F9. Hope you enjoy.

    Thanks, Don— I enjoyed that. I was fortunate to be on the stage when Levon brought the Ramble to Merlefest—one of my very favorite concerts ever.

    Levon and Ian Anderson from jethro tull were why I took up mandolin. Simple but effective playing.
