More on The Band

Also of note, when he sings, "I pulled into Nazareth...", he is referencing Nazareth, PA of the great Lehigh Valley.

Yes, this is a clip from Easy Rider, one of many films that used the song along with The Big Chill, Hope Floats, and a few million Dodge commercials.

Love The Band...I think they used to back up another famous singer and were always introduced as "The Band", so they eventually made their own album and let history speak for itself.

When I was little, my parents had this album...I thought it was the greatest since there is one line in "The Weight" that says, "...please keep young Emily company...", I thought they were referring to my sister.
