Thanks for all the input, Dingle!

Dr. Dingle, you're definately right about that. It's sort of like a Jeff Lynne production. A little goes a long way. I did really like the stuff he did for Dylan, however. (Oh Mercy and Time Out of Mind) The "atmospherics," if you will, seemed to fit Dylan's voice. I think it work for Emmylou Harris as well. (on Wrecking Ball )
The album he produced for Willie Nelson wasn't that bad, either. ( Teatro) Lanois seems to work best when it's a one-off affair as opposed to a long-term deal. (Otherwise it seems to get tired and boring - I think that's why Dylan broke the connection after Time Out of Mind)
And in the end...

As reknown as the Band is - especially amongst musicians - such as George - I believe they are the most under-rated group of them all. I saw them at Watkins Glen, with the Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers and 600,000 others and they were tremendous! Really transcendent!

Mit out und doubt, Herr PW! I was on the road today listening to one of my burned CDs and The Rumor came up. You had Robbie writing such atmospheric music, then Garth giving it the fitting embellishments, and then whether Richard, Rick and Levon sung together, in unison or in harmony, it's all over. Such a symbiotic group! They still leave me in amazement. :shock:

I believe Britney has chunked up quite a lot recently, during and after the pregnancy. So Mariah has the upper hand :twisted:

I wonder why George wasn't in the Last Waltz? Was he going through one of his withdrawal periods at the time?

Hmmm, good question mtm---The vibe inside The Band was supposedly stinkola by this time, so I'm sure if George was hip to that it would have moved him to bow out...but it may have also been as you suggest, struggling with his own personal problems. :?
