Last month, we lost Levon Helm. But one of the last recordings that the legendary Band drummer made before he died is now out in the world. Helm played drums on an all-star Amnesty International benefit song called “Toast For Freedom,” which was recorded at Helm’s own studios in Woodstock, NY. The song also features people like Kris Kristofferson, Marianne Faithfull, Carly Simon, the Blind Boys Of Alabama, Roseanne Cash, Donald Fagen, Eric Burdon, and Ewan McGregor. Watch the video for it below.
“Toast To Freedom” is for sale at iTunes and Amazon now.
