Story's Often Told
Label: Yep Roc Records
The Sadies wanted to make their own Last Waltz, so they organized a two-night extravaganza at Toronto's Lee's Palace and invited everyone from Neko Case and Jon Spencer to Garth Hudson of the Band and Jon Langford of the Mekons. The fact that all these heavies (especially Hudson) came out should tell you how good the Sadies are. And if you still have your doubts, spin this sprawling live jam and find out for yourself. They just might be the greatest country-rock band of the modern era.
