Smoke Notes

Raven presents this exceptional CD collection comprising two original albums from the legendary multi-instrumentalist / singer / songwriter and founding member of The Band – LEVON HELM: Levon Helm (1978) and Levon Helm (1982). Originally recorded for ABC and Capitol Records respectively, these two albums see Helm at the top of his game. As a mainstay of The Band, Helm was in a prime position to launch his solo career with that group’s farewell in 1976. The first of his two self-titled albums was produced by Donald “Duck” Dunn of the legendary Booker T. & the MG’s. Featuring Steve Cropper and the Muscle Shoals session crew, Levon Helm (1978) presents some serious funk and soul and earthy roots rock highlighted by excellent covers of Al Green’s ‘Take Me to the River’, Allen Toussaint’s ‘Play Something Sweet’ and Tony Joe White’s ‘I Came Here to Party’.

The second Levon Helm (1982) was produced by Jimmy Johnson and Barry Beckett from the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section and again featured funky tracks such as Richard Supa’s ‘Lucrecia’, Johnny Otis’ ‘Willie and the Hand Jive’ and the highly suggestive ‘Get Out Your Big Roll Daddy’. “Helm’s Arkansas drawl gives his vocals an affecting personality, the playing is solid and the songs really cook” – All Music Guide. With 75 minutes of superb quality audio, color booklet, detailed notes and bonus track (Eddie Cochran’s) ‘Summertime Blues’. Also available on Raven: Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars / American Son (RVCD-272).
