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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

stripervince1 : what fucking moron gave this a thumbs down. had to be a rap person

John W : Clapton blows him off the stage.

Clarence VonDusenberg : In this video Robbie > Eric

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 ....

Doug Smith : Mark Knopfler hangs with EC

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

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

Brian Murphy : Robbie show the coke head how it's done brother xx

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

The Provincial Gentry : The 2 thumbs down on this video gave me cancer

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

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.

Murat Kalyoncu : Clapton is god

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

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

hello there : Clapton went in on that closing solo!

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.

Paperbag1124 : Music has no competition, but clapton does better

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

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

Nash Records : cocaine

Bluesboy Jag Cigar Box Guitars : this is out of tune, the vid is slighly faster than it should be, raised the pitch a 1/2 step.

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!!

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.

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 ?

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!!!

Jonathan Murrin : I love Clapton and I love The Band but goddamn they should done an album.

Brian Rothenberger : Eric Clapton wanted to be in The Band. Went to Woodstock to ask them if he could join and was too intimidated after hearing them play. Don't believe me? Listen to his speech inducting them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

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

hop3777 : OHHHHHH!

stripervince1 : no such thing as anything even resembling rap that's remotely good. and I'm not your friend

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

Kevin Silvers : He's called SLOWHAND for a reason. Robbie rocked it, but Eric played with such ease.

bluesskywoman : It doesn't get any better than this!! Rock and roll at its finest.

Eugene J Ward : A true class recognition by the band by inviting EC to join them for their first final concert. Clapton actually came to Big Pink & ask to join the band because he felt they were making the best music of all the groups @ that time. Of course that couldn't be. But the Band was so flattered by EC's request they generously asked him to appear. And the guitar play back and forth is simply two great talents enjoying playing on the same stage.

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.

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?

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.

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

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

matthew smith : is Robbie playing brownie?

precision Brown : The old unlocks. Thank goodness for strap locks

billy murph : WOW DANCING WHILE I TYPE !!!!!! GREATTTTTTTTTTTTTTT JAM !!!
