The Band had one of the strongest rhythm sections in rock and roll (see also the Rolling Stones). Rick Danko had a terrific talent for creating rollicking bass lines while Levon Helm kept the tune rolling assertively forward. They were, in my opinion, an ideal mix of competence and confidence.
You can hear this well in the two enclosed songs: “Yazoo Street Scandal,” one of the Band’s tunes from The Basement Tapes and “Revolution Blues” by Neil Young, one of my favorite songs of all time.
