Dylan and The Band, “Yazoo Street Scandal”, from The Basement Tapes.
This is 1967. As someone points out in the comments on the youtube video, for 67, these were almost unprecedented approaches for rock musicians to take on each of their instruments. Danko’s bass is incredibly elastic, for one thing. Garth Hudson was always insane, so that works.
But god, Levon. His voice, still fresh, still pristine, so fucking STRONG—this is a vocal performance par excellence, even by his lofty standards.
