'The Weight' by the Band's Robbie Robertson

One of the highlights of Martin Scorsese's "The Last Waltz," which documents the Band's farewell concert in 1976, is a performance of "The Weight." Rather than use the concert version, the director shot it on an MGM soundstage with the Staple Singers joining in for a rousing, roots-gospel rendition.
