Seven years on from their iconic Last Waltz in San Francisco, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel reunited, performing (with backup from the Cate Brothers) to rapturous receptions in the US and Canada. Manuel in particular was in better form than he'd been for years, as the band tore through a selection of classics from their back catalog, as well as the new track "Java Blues" and numerous oldies they'd played during their long apprenticeship. This remarkable set at the University of Chicago's Mandel Hall on July 1, 1983, was broadcast on WXRT-FM at the outset of their reunion, and is presented here in its entirety with background notes and images.
