Amy Helm's "Bye Bye Love."

From our good friend from Bob Andrews of Michigan:

Hi you guys,
I've been listening to Bye Bye My Love now for quite a while and went to attempt to locate the lyrics and found, well . . . nothing - the internet has ever heard of it.

It has found it's way into many a Ramble - unfortunately not the one I attended - 100

I first heard it here
. . . and it goes like this

Bye Bye My Love - NPR - Midnight Ramble

Thanks much, Bob! We heard Amy perform this beautiful song the last Ramble we attended & it was amazing. There is a wonderful live version of it on Levon's latest release from MerleFest.

Congrats to Ronnie "The Hawk" Hawkins!

The Hawk was just inducted into the the Arkansas Entertainers Hall of Fame. Very well deserved to a very talented man who brought together our favorite band - The Band.

Bob Dylan plays "This Wheel's On Fire" live.

Last night's Dylan fans @ his Montreal show witnessed him performing This Wheel's On Fire, a tune he's very well noted for co-creating/writing w/ The Band's amazing bassist & co-lead singer & song writer Rick Danko.

New "Visons of Dylan" Myspace page.

Our friend from across the pond, Mary Wogan (Ireland), has extended her wonderful Bob Dylan-based blog Visions of Dylan to a Myspace page. Check it out. She's a Band fan as well. It's fair to say she's pretty cool.
