LEVON From Down in the Delta to the Birth of The Band and Beyond

by | Read by Rosemary Benson

Biography & Memoir • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Rosemary Benson creates the voices of the major and minor figures in this biography of Levon Helm, drummer for The Band. She delivers a convincing voicing of Helm's soft Arkansas dialect and even mimics incidental characters such as saxophonist Bobby Keys and folk singer Happy Traum. Author Tooze's excellent research keeps the biography interesting (odd fact--Helm loved to gobble frozen marshmallows), and Levon's fans will appreciate Tooze's balanced approach to The Band's breakup, which bypasses the rationalizations and justifications of the Helm and Robbie Robertson memoirs. If you're a fan of audiobooks about musicians--or just a fan of The Band-- you'll enjoy this. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
