The Band Live 1970 - No Label

...We start out this week with a little tribute to LEVON HELM and THE BAND with "Live 1970" 2CD featuring a bootleg vinyl transfer from the original Rubber Dubber 2LP set "Real Old Time Band - Live At The Hollywood Bowl 7-10-70", a really nice recording and a great set...this is a non-label production, likely from the same people who brought us the nice "Live 1969" 3CD set that was issued in 2011, and pictured below as it's being reissued...
