The Band 06/23/96
Loreley, St. Goarshausen, Germany
This is from the tour in support of their album, High on the hog. It is one of the last concerts by The Band, they ended the tour in august 1996, and they played a few stand-alone gigs after that. I think this is the last filmed concert by The Band (correct me in the comments if I’m wrong).
Interesting show, good picture and sound, enjoy!

The Highwaymen was a Country music supergroup comprising four of the genre’s biggest artists well known for their pioneering influence on the outlaw country subgenre: Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson. Active between 1985 and 1995, these four artists recorded three major label albums as The Highwaymen: two on Columbia Records and one for Liberty Records. Their Columbia works produced three chart singles, including the Number One “Highwayman” in 1985.
We love these artists separate and we loved when they sang together, and we have dug up two great treasures.
First we have a concert shot at Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum in 1990, In between the songs are short snippets of separate anecdotes the four share about each other. They have respect, love and admiration for one another. The music is superb, the audience receptive and the band a core of excellent musicians.
The Highwaymen Live 1990:
We also have found a terrific documentary, originally it was included as a bonus DVD on a release of the album The Road Goes On Forever. A good album by the way. It shows the Highwaymen in the studio and his has some great candid moments, it’s a gem.
