Thanksgiving, 1976, San Francisco's Winterland: the Band performs its last concert after 16 years on the road.

Scorsese's camera explores the interactions onstage in the making of music. Offstage, he interviews the Band's five members, focusing on the nature of life on the road.

Horses by Patti Smith( Recording )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn es ein Album gibt, das den Anstoss zur Punk-Revolution gegeben hat, dann ist das ganz sicher Patti Smiths Erstlling <<Horses>>. Zugleich ist es aber der Beweis, dass Punk tiefe Wurzeln in der Rock-Geschichte hat. -- Zu Patti Smiths Ikonen gehören Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix und Keith Richards, und auf <<Horses>> covert sie - auf ihre eigenwillige Weise - sogar <<Gloria>> von Them und den Soul-Klassiker <<Land of 1000 Dances>>. -- Patti Smith - inzwischen selbst eine Ikone der Rockgeschichte - war ursprünglich nicht nur Dichterin (inspiriert von Allen Ginsberg und der literarischen Beat-Bewegung), sie war auch Rock-Fan. Und in ihrer Band spielt mit Lenny Kaye sogar ein richtiger Rock-Kritiker! Trotzdem verkörpert sie das Punk-Ethos perfekt: Do-It-Yourself ist das Motto des Albums, die Gitarren sind verstimmt, und Patti deklamiert mehr, als dass sie singt. -- Und nicht zufällig hat eine Zeile aus dem Titelsong - <<The Boy Looked At Johnny>> - auch den Titel für ein berühmtes Punk-Buch der englischen Musikjournalisten Julie Burchill und Tony Parsons geliefert und wurde später auch Titel eines Songs von The Libertines. (Quelle:, 16.10.2008)
