The Band - Long Black Veil (31 Dec. 1983)

San Francisco Civic Auditorium (San Francisco, CA) Een van mijn favoriete "The Band"nummers.Had het al eerder op mijn blog,maar deze uitvoering is toch ook weer erg mooi(ondanks de piep halverwege)

"Long Black Veil" is a 1959 country ballad, written by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin and originally recorded by Lefty Frizzell. A saga song, "Long Black Veil" is told from the point of view of an executed man falsely accused of murder. He refuses to provide an alibi, since on the night of the murder he was having an affair with his best friend's wife, and would rather die and take their secret to his grave than admit the truth. The chorus describes the woman's mourning visits to his gravesite, wearing a long black veil and enduring a wailing wind.(Wikipedia)
