SONG FOR TODAY: The Band - Up On Cripple Creek

So as a tribute to Levon Helm, today's 'Song For Today' is taken from The Band's self-titled sophomore LP, which was on my turntable last night. 'Up on Cripple Creek' is the fifth song on The Band's eponymous second album, The Band. It was released as an (edited) single in November 1969 and reached #25 on the Billboard Hot 100. Up on 'Cripple Creek' was written by Band guitarist and principal songwriter Robbie Robertson, with the late, great Levon Helm singing lead vocal.
