The Band - 1976-08-25 - Los Angeles - 'Tears of Grief'

August 25, 1976
Greek Theatre, Los Angeles, CA
Tears Of Grief

Audience recording, good quality
Available in both Lossless (Flac) and mp3 (320k) versions

Here's one more show from The Band that I wanted to post, this one coming from their final tour before The Last Waltz later that year. Now, there are certainly better sounding recordings from this tour out there, most notably the excellent FM broadcast recordings from Washington DC and New York (which are widely available at other sites, like TUBE and QualityBootz, and worth having if you don't already), but this one from the Greek Theatre in LA is one you probably don't have, and is not widely available elsewhere (so, it is just the thing to post here). This is a good (but not great) quality audience recording, with another great performance featuring a full set of 18 songs, including all the greats as well as a few songs not heard on any other shows featured here ('Forbidden Fruit', 'Twilight', 'Tears of Rage'), so this is well worth getting to round out your Band collection.

1. Don't Do It
2. The Shape I'm In
3. It Makes No Difference
4. The Weight
5. King Harvest (Has Surely Come)
6. Forbidden Fruit
7. This Wheel's On Fire
8. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down / Across The Great Divide
9. Ophelia
10. Up On Cripple Creek
11. Twilight
12. WS Walcott Medicine Show
13. Tears Of Rage
