Martin Scorsese’s film The Last Waltz will come to Blu-ray for the first time in the UK on November 12. It documents The Band’s farewell concert that became a seminal moment in rock music history.
Featuring Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Muddy Waters and Joni Mitchell on stage with The Band, Martin Scorsese’s seminal rock documentary The Last Waltz isn’t just a recording of a rock n roll group’s farewell concert but a celebration of music and the stars of the moment.
On Blu-ray for the first time in the UK courtesy of Eureka Entertainment’s The Masters of Cinemas Series from November 12, The Last Waltz is presented with a Limited Edition Hardbound Case and a 100-page perfect bound collector’s book (including writing on the film by Adam Batty, Greil Marcus and Robbie Robertson).
Rightly so, The Last Waltz has been called one of the greatest rock concert movies ever made and will now be made available to audiences like never before. As well as its limited edition collector’s book and hardbound case, the film boasts a 1080p presentation of the film, PCM 5.1 audio and two commentaries.
The first featuring Scorsese and musician Robbie Robertson, the second featuring “The Band” members Levon Helm and Garth Hudson, journalists Jay Cocks and Greil Marcus, creative consultant Mardik Martin, producers Jonathan Taplin and Steven Prince, cameraman Michael Chapman, music producer John Simon, Irwin Winkler and performers Mavis Staples, Dr. John and Ronnie Hawkins (with optional subtitles identifying who is talking).
