The best show in America

By Clive Crook

Last weekend I went to one of Levon Helm's Midnight Rambles. I wrote a gushing, and entirely sincere, review of the event for the FT. I suggested "The best show in America" as the title for the article but my editor, I think, deemed this a little over the top. If she had come along I think she might have agreed with me.

[Incidentally, the second picture was miscaptioned. That's Teresa Williams not Amy Helm--to be fixed shortly on the website. Thanks to Dennis and Mari, and to Michael, Michael, and Stacy for a great weekend.]
