Monday Morning Key Bumps: The Band - The Shape I'm In

Dragging ass after Panic Red Rocks run? How about a little something from The Band to soothe the soul? On Sunday afternoon, Widespread Panic paid homage to The Band with a hat trick of covers banging out Ophelia > The Shape I'm In > Chest Fever.

Here's a clip from The Last Waltz and the last-ever performance of The Shape I'm In...

Last ever performance? Of the original line-up of the Band, yes.

Here's a video of the Robbie-less Band playing it in 1983.

The Robbie-and-Manuel-less Band also played it throughout the 90s.

I managed to see them a handful of times in the 90s. It was great, nobody cared about the Band's music then so you could see them in bars.... Levon, Rick, and Garth. I'm so glad I got into them in the late 80s.

I even saw them with Billy Preston sitting in on keyboards. I was standing right in front of Billy and about 10 feet from Levon. Billy's spit was hitting me while he sang "Will It Go Round In Circles", "Nothing from Nothing" and "Get Back". Ah, memories.
