Ren Jay : I don't get all the comments saying one is better than the other blah blah blah. They're both fucking brilliant at what they do and the both seem to be enjoying themselves. I enjoyed it. Great stuff.

Harry Verey : I hadn't noticed Clapton's guitar strap coming off either and Robbie Robertson stepping in to take  over the lead- just shear professionalism.

stripervince1 : 2 masters at the top of their game ,40 years ago.....God music sucks today

Eugene Ward,Jr. : One of the best things about this documentary for me was realizing just how damn great a guitarist Robbie Robertson is. (Never saw them live) On their records he rarely took center stage so to speak with long solos. Never really tried to standout from the rest of The Band. So l was like holy shit,this guy can really burn it up when he cuts loose. I didn't give any thought to wether he or Clapton was out doing the other. But it's obvious that they were both having fun trading licks. Just a great performance by two exceptionally talented musicians.

Todd Salvati : Clapton and Robertson inducted each other into the Hall of Fame, there was no competition. Bands in the 60's and 70's collaborated and played together with the goal of making f/ing great music. However, Levon Helm is having more fun than anyone. LOL

leirbag51 : Not everything in life is suposed to be a battle! Just enjoy...its music at its finest! God save the Blues!

Murat Kalyoncu : Clapton is god

CHlEFFIN : Masterful Clapton... simply masterful...👏🏽

John W : Clapton blows him off the stage.

James Schuster : Robbie steps up and matches Clapton. Killer intensity. He had to show his chops. Well done. I will bow down now.

Mike Maxwell : Yes the guitar by both Robbie and EC is superb...but let's not overlook the incredible rhythm section...Levon's drumming and Rick's bass is killer!!

Adam Dion : robbie gives it his best effort...clapton ruins him!

Paperbag1124 : Music has no competition, but clapton does better

hello there : Clapton went in on that closing solo!

Turret Krino : This video of Further on up the Road has been edited to be half a step higher in pitch - in the key of G#. The original performance of Further on up the Road in the Last Waltz is in the key of G.

Alexandros Papadopoulos : I am amazed of the control that Clapton has even when he is improvising, it's crazy. I mean look at his fingers, it's like he has been been playing that song exactly the same way since he was born.

Matt H : It would've been cool if Clapton stepped in when the band split up and made them HIS backing band, since Robbie was the only one who really wanted out. He sounds so good with them here. Much better than other live audio from him during this period in my opinion

DuckTalesWooHoo1987 : I'm a die hard guitar nerd but all I could think during this is "Man, Levon is so cool!" LOL!

Dana Bradley : The Last Waltz will forever be a video I re-visit, and largely to listen & watch Eric Clapton's genius musical magic!!! Thanks Martin Scorsese for uniting in one unforgettable documentary, all these wonderful musical treasures!!!

DonVal86 : Clapton is great as always but I gotta say I’ve never heard anyone play those licks like Robbie played.

Colin O'Connor : Clapton is God!

robert potts : I couldn't be friends with anyone who dislikes this....

Nash Records : cocaine

Richard A Matthew : Eric Clapton, Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Rick Danko--unbelievable. Not much left of rock and roll today. Thank god someone taped all this.

Gergely Riba : According to Clapton, The Band was his favorite band, and he respected them highly as musicians.


John Johnson : I love how Robbie steps in when his strap comes off, I love claptons face after Robbie rips that solo at 2:30

brspo1987 : Are we really going to taint such an awesome performance with a conversation about who was a better blues soloist between Clapton and Robertson? First off, just enjoy it. Secondly....come on, seriously? Clapton vs. Robbie on a Strat? Why don't you guys ask Robbie if he thinks he could outplay EC in a jam, you'll get a straight answer from him. But with that side, the thirdly part of this is, Robbie's solos were great. As a matter of fact, his playing in this entire concert was fantastic from start to finish, and I've never heard anything else from him, studio or live, that matches the level he was at that night. Or even close.

G1975 : Someone is gonna hurt you like you hurt me!

Jim Siokos : Bob Dylan said that Robbie Robertson was "“the only mathematical guitar genius that I’ve ever run into who does not offend my intestinal nervousness with his rear-guard sound.”

Fabian Robertsson : I have the biggest smile on my face everytime I watch this video. You can tell all of them are really feeling it playing with such enjoyment. They didn't care about who being the better player, it wasn't about that. Why should we?

james monty : One of the most underrated guitarist's of all time.. Robbie Robertson

Northern Boy : Robbie can play those solos, but man, his rhythm playing is spot on. Never overdone - just what needs to be done.

Vic Soboleski : That was awesome , Robbie held his own with Clapton till that last come back of EC ,which was other worldly clean .....was the vid fast or did they uptempo it or something ?

mike galante : Finally, a good youtube version of this. best version of this song ever ,better than jef beck and bossama{sic] . answer to why eric's strap fell off in at the beginning of this video for any conspiracy freaks

Robot 5000 : They’re both awesome, iconic guitarists. I personally think the only difference is Eric is a genuine prodigy - he was probably the best guitarist in the world when he was 13 years old.............he was an iconic guitarist (in the music industry, not the pop charts) by 16 years of age. And he just makes very hard things look completely effortless. Whereas Robbie obviously has to try harder. It’s a similar end result, but I’m just saying, Clapton is barely trying, because he didn’t need to.

Christian Sefesi : The only time Clapton really overplayed his hand. The only time I seen him steal the show on purpose. He nearly did it against Otis Rush as well. He is a better player then Robbie. He didn't need to outplay Robbie. It was his and the Band's farewell. He is generally a very humble and gracious player.

Jacked Johnson : It's so sad that the human brain fixates on who got the better of whom?

Redbush : I've been a Clapton fan for a long while and while I've enjoyed listening to the Band, only recently have I really delved deep into them. I don't know where to stand on the whole Robbie Robertson song-writing credit ordeal, I very much respect what he's done in the Band but I also believe he other members should have gotten their credit. I will not compare Robbie and Eric here, but this song really showcases how well Robbie can play lead. He holds his own with Slowhand here, in my opinion.

Robert Dunham : Top that

Ladd Stanton : Two of the best in one jam session in the beginning. Could barely take it

Antonio Dias : and what about a duel between Eric Clapton and Rory Gallagher?? it would a top show ...but is no longer possible and I think it never happened

J C : 2:38 Damn Robbie’s a guitar god!

BluesyBluesGuy : Clapton was not even at half his virtuosuo capabilities in 1976. He just got through a 3 years heroin addiction when he did not play, he was also drinking heavily. But his feeling is present.

TheEyeofthetiger101 : Anyone else think it looks like Robbie's footage is sped up ? like Rick Danko in the background looks really sped up ? Am i going crazy here ?

サワダケン : I don't like this footage. The speed was changed faster...

Gregg Greasley : Two master's of their art weaving magic! Absolutely excellent iv seen Clapton 3 times over 25yrs and Always excellent

Robert Dunham : Bam..

Doug Smith : people say Robbie hangs with EC BS HE can't touch Clapton.

John McInturff : Clapton is the bluesbreaker here, completely blows away Robbie. Sorry Robbie, but what did you expect when playing with Eric. To be honest it sounds like you are playing a strat strung with rubber bands. Eric has the touch dude ....
