    Yes I agree. Different.
    I bought both EP and The Overload on vinyl.

    The Weight

    I'm listening to "The Weight" by The Band. It's a classic song that I never get tired of hearing.

    I have to agree. I am a bit ashamed to admit, after decades of listening and singing along, that the lyrics are not "annie" they are "fanny"

    If it's available where you live, if you have not seen the streaming special on the band "band of brothers" I highly recommend it. In it Robbie goes into quite a bit of depth about the writing of that song.

    Just today I was listening to this song, two versions -- The Band's and Aretha Franklin's, on my "alternate takes" playlist. I've always enjoyed Aretha's version, which was on her Soul '69 album, and featured Duane Allman on slide guitar, produced by Jerry Wexler. It is also on the Duane Allman Anthology.

    Just searched my archive, and it seems I have quite a number of covers of The Weight:

    The Band twice (original and from The Last Waltz with the Staples)
    Dala (Canadian duo, two women)
    Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper (instrumental, nice guitar from Bloomfield in the second half of the track)
    Rickie Lee Jones
    Diana Ross and the Supremes
    Aretha Franklin

    There are dozens of others, some of which I'd like to hear. The Ventures, for instance.

    Suicide - Surrender. This is a newly released compilation by the proto-synth-punk band Suicide, featuring 16 tracks from throughout their career over two LPs, CD, streaming. Suicide had a really tough time with audiences back in the 1970s (e.g. being bottled on stage supporting The Clash; the famous recoding of them being forced off stage by an irate Belgian audience). I bought their first LP back in about 1978, being intrigued by a review in a HiFi magazine to the effect that "only a poseur could claim to like this"!

    Over the years, I have bought most if not all of Suicide's output, so there's little on this magnificent looking compilation that I don't already have, just unreleased versions of two tracks, so I'm unlikely to buy it. But as an introduction to Suicide this would be unparalleled.

    Suicide's music veers from the aggressive to to the tender. Dream Baby Dream soundtracks a perfume advert on TV now! How things change from those early reviews...
