Music & Lyrics by J. R. Robertson and Van Morrison

For a little over a year now I've been working on my first record. When Levon Helm lost his battle with cancer this past April I decided I wanted to honor him and the music he had a hand in making by recording a cover of The Band to include on my "debut album". Obviously being a huge Van Morrison fan I decided it would be fun cut a version of The Band's "4% Pantomime", a song which Van Morrison co-wrote with Robbie Robertson for the 1971 album Cahoots. It's also a song in which Levon's drumming really shines. The odd beat is one of my favorite things about this tune.

I don't generally use this channel to promote my own music. In fact I never do, but I figured some of you might like to hear my own take on a Van Morrison/Band tune.

Hope you enjoy. Here's to Levon Helm.
