Regular price $31.95

Indie Exclusive Translucent Clear Double Vinyl

Mavis Staples and Levon Helm forged a lifelong friendship after performing “The Weight” together at The Band’s 1976 concert in San Francisco, and immortalized in Martin Scorsese’s film The Last Waltz. Thirty-five years later, Staples went to Woodstock, NY, to perform as part of Helm’s renowned Midnight Ramble series … and the ensuing concert is now available on this release, Carry Me Home. Their last performance together, captured live in the summer of 2011, showcases two iconic voices coming together in love and joy, tracing their shared roots and celebrating the enduring power of faith and music. The setlist was righteous that night, mixing vintage gospel and soul with timeless folk and blues, and the performances were loose and playful, fueled by an ecstatic atmosphere that was equal parts family reunion and tent revival. The result is an album that’s at once a time capsule and a memorial, a blissful homecoming and a fond farewell, a once-in-a-lifetime concert and a friendship preserved for the ages.
