For The Band, the 1980's marked their return to the rock stage, after the legendary retirement show , The Last Waltz, which had taken place in November 1976. November.  Of course, the reformed group consisted of only 4 of their original members -   Garth Hudson, Levon Helm, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel, as Robbie Robertson chose not to rejoin his former bandmates.  Then in early 1986, about 3 years into their comeback, The Band lost Richard Manuel, who tragically committed suicide. Manuel had suffered for years from alcoholism and drug addiction. Down to just 3 of the 5 original members,  The Band could have called it quits for a 2nd time. Instead, the trio decided to continue to tour. This soundboard matrix recording captures The Band on March 11, 1987, 29 years ago today, just about a year after Manuel's passing.  Download this one to hear the Hudson, Helm and Danko perform a host of classics in memory of their fallen comrade in music.
