Prick Tunes: The Band Live on New Year's Eve 1983

Levon Helm Tribute Week rolls on here at Inconsiderate Prick. Today, we have a full concert of The Band.

So maybe this isn't from an era in which The Band were on amicable terms with Robbie Robertson, but this is a 1:14:53 full concert of The Band still featuring Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, and of course Levon Helm. The Band opened for The Grateful Dead at the San Francisco Civic Auditorium that night.

Even without Robertson, this concert is outstanding.

Here's the setlist:
"Rag Mama Rag"
"Long Black Veil"
"The Shape I'm In"
"It Makes No Difference"
"Milk Cow Blues"
"Mystery Train"
"King Harvest (Has Surely Come)"
"Stage Fright"
"W.S. Walcott Medicine Show"
"You Don't Know Me"
"Genetic Method / Chest Fever"
"Java Blues"
"Willie & The Hand Jive"
