May 20, 2014 with Eric Allen

EricAllenOn this night, when Eric Allen made his return to Tuesday In the Forest, he had just gotten his first tattoo, the word “Levon” – a tribute to Levon Helms. In honor of this occasion, we showcased some of the many guest appearances by Levon Helm on various records. So throughout the night there’s a good amount of the trademark Levon Helms funky swing (he’s noted in the playlist when it’s not The Band), plus a variety of soul, country and dad rock. Enjoy!
