I saw Tiny about a year before his death and got an autograph....his version of "Bad Moon Rising" was a hoot.

P.S>- I'll definitalely get at least the 2 disc set because....I'm a Band fanatic, and these are said to be all the original tapes without the overdubs and extraneous unrelated material that Robbie added to the commercial release of 1975.

On Pink Floyd's song "Remember a Day" from A Saucer Full of Secrets, drummer Nick Mason was frustrated that he couldn't come up with a suitable drum part. Producer Norman "Hurricane" Smith knew what he wanted to hear. So, Smith played the drum part himself. Mason did not appear on the released track.
After Rick Wright died, Gilmour and his then-band went on Jools Holland's BBC show (for the life of me, I can't remember the name right now) and did a very, very nice version of the song. As far as I know, Pink Floyd never played it live nor did it for a BBC session and Gilmour never played it again.

Later... with Jools Holland?

In addition to "Be My Baby," TT & the Band recorded "Memphis (download has some mistracking anomalies): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZFe2vZ8v9A "I Got You Babe" & "Sonny Boy."

Be My Baby - Tiny Tim & the Band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdA_ZHjLxbU

Although not with Dylan or the Band, here's TT's Do Ya Think I'm Sexy video (BTW: NO, I don't think he's sexy.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N_jlF-sRqk There is a better version of this by the KGB Chicken on Rhino's Circus Royale compilation LP. Sorry, I couldn't find a clip for that.

Let's hear it for the late, great Herbert Khaury, aka Tiny Tim!

...if you aren't familiar with THE BAND there is a great blu ray which was directed by Martin Scorsese covering the 1976 farewell performance that is well worth a purchase HERE...
IMHO, The Last Waltz is the BEST rock concert movie or documentary of all time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Waltz

An audio-only DVD-A (OOP) was released. The 5.1 mix and lossless audio are superb. DVD-A Poll: https://www.quadraphonicquad.com/forums/showthread.php?4671-Band-THE-LAST-WALTZ-DVD-A&highlight=the+last+waltz

There is also a 4 CD deluxe complete Last Waltz for completists nuts like me.

i agree! absolutely love it...it's a powerful one. interesting that was the first place they played as a formal group..fitting it was also the last. and amazing how they played together this last time...one would never know the strife going on behind the scenes...they seemed to put differences aside that night and were having a blast!

I saw Rolling Stones: Live at the Max at an IMAX theater in 1991 and that was really something special. The opening scene has you following the Stones from the back dressing rooms out to the stage - what a rush - and it just kept on for 90 minutes non-stop. It was hilarious as we walked out of the theater to the parking lot there were these 2 boys ahead of us - around 14, I guess - and I heard one say to the other "yeah, they're pretty good, but Madonna is a lot better."

Linda's post about Hurricane Smith and his hit reminded me about the kind of short little era back then from 1970 to about 1972 when there were these quirky little tunes and they were good ones.

Another was Mungo Jerry's "In the Summer Time". I even consider Seals and Croft's "Summer Breeze" one of those because of it's unusual meter. It was difficult to "sync" to when you first heard it. Also, "Little Green Bag" by George Baker and "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo" which I believe was Lobo's first hit.

Don't forget the quirky "My Girl Bill", "Wildwood Weed", and "Spiders and Snakes" from that time period. Jim Stafford. Great stuff, and rarely heard these days - probably for the better! :)

More Sly: in 2013, George Clinton released the first Funkadelic single in over 20 years. It was a cover version of Lord Buckley's THE NAZ(sic) w/Sly Stone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbPLMpgRc-o

Lord Buckley's Nazz Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0x5x8lyON8

And then, there was Todd Rundgren's group The Nazz: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazz Their first gig was opening for the Doors in '67. "Open My Eyes" was their first single. The flip side was the original version of Hello It's Me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtNQvt99P2w
