Levon Helm


Levon Helm (Mark Lavon Helm), best-known as the drummer in The Band, died a year ago this week. We’ve just come across this 1971 video of him singing “Baby Don’t You Do It,” the Holland-Dozier-Holland song that was a hit for Marvin Gaye in 1964. The horn charts here are by Allen Toussaint.
