Sunday Music: The Band - "Stage Fright"
From Scorsese's The Last Waltz. I was digging into a Band boxed set I hadn't listened to in awhile and found this track, which showcases the late Rick Danko on vocals and the mad, out-of-time keyboards of Garth Hudson. On the "Q&A" section of the Criterion Mystery Train blu-ray, I'm pretty sure I heard Jim Jarmusch call The Band his favorite band of all time. If I heard correctly, then that's wonderful and very surprising.
