It was Levon Helm's first studio album independent of the Band. Washer Woman" (Mac Rebennack). The Tie That Binds" (Mac Rebennack, Bobby Charles Guidry). You Got Me" (Booker T. Jones). Blues So Bad" (Henry Glover, Levon Helm). Sing, Sing, Sing (Let's Make a Better World)" (Earl King). Milk Cow Boogie" (Kokomo Arnold) (Traditional; arranged by Levon Helm & Donald Dunn).

But while there is no question that the band can really cook, Levon's homey Arkansas twang gets a little lost in the mix. In general, though, the songs are buoyed by Paul Butterfield's blues harp and the crack horn section, especially on the soulful "Rain Down Tears.

Helm and the All Star Band - Surefire (Preacher Mix).

Harmonica swaying and drifting in and out of a song that wallows in bittersweet thematics. Horns and Levon on the drums join in, and the beat drives the song on. It's addicting and potent. A poignant folksie blues ballad if you will, there are no blues when you listen to this one! Show more.
