On lyrical tension between the sacred and profane.
WoW, this was the last thing I expected to see here. THANK YOU SO MUCH for including this in the series. I do definitely believe that The Band's music was both sacred and profane. Being at the many Band concerts I have attended--I think it was 39--I can attest that I felt the oneness of it all and the connectedness with the people and with G-d. I didn't need any drugs to do this. The music was enough to transport me to where I wanted to go.
