Levon Helm’s "Midnight Ramble Sessions Vol. 3" To Be Released In November
The third installment of the Levon Helm Band’s Midnight Ramble Sessions is set for release on November 20. The compilation, Midnight Ramble Sessions Vol. 3, was one of Helm’s last projects before he died in April. The beloved bandleader sorted through hundreds of gigs recorded at his barn in Woodstock, NY, where he held his famous Rambles in the last decade of his life. You can listen to the track “Same Thing” from The Midnight Ramble Sessions Vol. 3 here.
In an effort to keep the barn and studio in the hands of Helm’s estate, a number of musicians will come together for a benefit at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ on October 3. The “Love for Levon” concert will feature an all-star lineup including Roger Waters, Garth Hudson, My Morning Jacket, Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes, Ray LaMontagne, John Mayer, Mavis Staples, Lucinda Williams and many more.
