The last waltz by Band (Musical group)( Visual )

73 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thanksgiving, 1976, San Francisco's Winterland: the Band performs its last concert after 16 years on the road. Some numbers they do alone, some songs include guest artists from Ronnie Hawkins (their first boss, when they were the Hawks) to Bob Dylan (their last, when as his backup and as a solo group, they came into their own). 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. The friendships, the harmonies, the hijinks, and the wear and tear add up to a last waltz

Festival express by Bob Smeaton( Visual )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the summer of 1970, a series of music festivals took place across Canada. After the first festival in Toronto, the musicians, their roadies and a film crew traveled by private train to the remaining festivals in Winnipeg and Calgary. This is the story of the Festival Express. The tour was a financial flop, and thanks of a fight between the festival promoters and the film producers, no film was edited or exhibited. So this film is, in effect, a brand new film from 1970. If the tour itself was not a success, the party that accompanied it became legend: take one private train, add eight bands full of talented musicians get impromptu jams fueled by drugs and liquor in every car. The main attraction is two now deceased headliners, Janis Joplin and Jerry Garcia, seen both on stage and off. Filmed only two months before Joplin's death, the sequences involving her are truly electrifying and capture her at the height of her self-consuming talent. The Grateful Dead are captured while in the midst of recording and releasing its two essential albums (Workingman's Dead and American Beauty). It captures a pure moment in time when musical hearts and minds beat as one, when musicians of all stripes--without benefit of publicists, handlers, or security goons--came together to work and play hard and leave behind one damn fine-looking corpse
