On January 3rd, 1974 Bob Dylan embarked on a 30-date tour with The Band. “Tour ’74” marked the reunion of Dylan with the group that backed him in 1966 as “The Hawks.” A stellar audience recording of The Band’s portion of the show from a January 25th, 1974 concert at Tarrant County Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas recently surfaced on YouTube.

The Band not only backed Dylan for most of the night, but the quintet played their own material without Bob at portions of each show. In the embed below fans can hear 10 of The Band’s most beloved songs played live . Guitarist Robbie Robertson, multi-instrumentalists Levon Helm and Richard Manuel, keyboardist Garth Hudson and bassist Rick Danko work through such numbers of “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” “King Harvest (Has Surely Come),” “Up On Cripple Creek,” “The Shape I’m In” and “The Weight.”
