After playing Atlanta, Bob Dylan and The Band visited the Governor's mansion and spent some time with Jimmy Carter. The Band later played Georgia On My Mind on SNL as a nod to the friend they had made. For the four Canadians it was as close to casting a vote as they could get.

OTD: Jan 22, 1974 Bob Dylan and The Band were playing in Atlanta at the Omni. I figured we'd post all the dates as they come up leading to the finale on Valentine's Day. 45 years and counting!
On January 17, 1974, The Band was pretty busy. They released Planet Waves which was Bob’s first number 1 album. They were also in North Carolina on their now historic “Tour 74,” which according to sources was the highest grossing tour of all time to date.

"We took several beautiful photographs at Big Pink. One was a picture of the musicians taken from behind, sitting on a bench in front of a pond. They had explained that they didn't want a name because they wanted the focus to be on the music, not on themselves, and didn't want to be labeled and defined by the audiences preconception." -Elliott Landy

After leaving Ronnie Hawkins in 1964, the group toured on their own, usually billed as Levon and the Hawks.
Hawkins’ producer at Roulette, the legendary Henry Glover brought the lineup that would later become The Band into Bell Studios in New York to record two fine Robbie Robertson originals, “Leave Me Alone” and “Uh Uh Uh”, in the spring of 1965. Glover released these on the Ware label in the U.S., and on Apex in Canada.
In September of '65 they recorded two further Robertson originals, the soulful “He Don’t Love You” and “The Stones I Throw” that made it to the Atco label. After the success of Big Pink, in late 1968, Atco dug up one further song, “Go Go Liza Jane”, recycling “He Don’t Love You” for the flip.
