Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Hawkins, Ronnie Wood, Ringo Starr were among the performers who came to honor and play with one of the most beloved bands in rock and roll.  Robbie Robertson describes in detail how it evolved from a concert to an event, how he convinced Martin Scorcese to film it and how he never expected it would become what it is today.

 Over an hour long you'll hear some musical highlights from the concert, along with interviews with Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Garth Hudson, as well as the late Levon Helm and Rick Danko.  From: Dan Neer
