Now Available: THE LAST WALTZ
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the final concert by Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, and Robbie Robertson as The Band. The performance, appropriately dubbed “The Last Waltz,” took place at the Winterland Theater in San Francisco, with the boys in The Band joined by a wide variety of guest stars, including – but not limited to – Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, and Neil Young. Thankfully, the whole affair was filmed, with director Martin Scorsese delivering the end result to movie theaters in April 1978.

Out Now: TRAINSPOTTING: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE

If you were a fan of the 1996 film adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel Trainspotting, you’re not the only one. It’s a funny, frantic, and occasionally horrifying tale of friendship and drug addiction that helped cement the reputation of Danny Boyle as a great director and helped turn Ewan McGregor into a proper movie star. With the film’s sequel – yes, it’s called Trainspotting 2 – at long last completed and finally set to hit theaters in early 2017, Rhino has dipped into the archives to reissue TRAINSPOTTING: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE on vinyl.

Remembering Tommy Tedesco

Guitar Player magazine called him “the most recorded guitar player in history,” while guitar manufacturers Gibson called him “the most famous guitarist you’ve never heard of.” How did Tommy Tedesco – who died on this day in 1997 – manage to earn both titles?

Happy 45th: Led Zeppelin, LED ZEPPELIN IV
45 years ago today, Led Zeppelin released the album that has come to be viewed among many fans as the only Led Zeppelin album you need to own. Of course, that’s ridiculous, because you obviously need to own all of them – the preceding 13 words have been brought to you by the fine folks at Rhino Records – but there’s certainly considerable merit to the theory when you consider that it’s the album that contains the eternal rock ‘n’ roll trifecta of “Black Dog,” “Rock and Roll,” and “Stairway to Heaven.”
