Across the Great Divide: Robbie Robertson, "He Don't Live Here No More"

A rollicking rebuke of the libertine demons that stole too many friends, at least on its surface, "He Don't Live Here No More" heralded Robbie Robertson's first solo release in more than a decade. "I was higher than a lost kite - too far gone," Robertson wails, channelling lost souls like Richard Manuel and Rick Danko, former mates in the Band - even as he made a more personal admission, it seemed.

'Given' by Kevin Lee Florence

Given , the debut album by singer/songwriter Kevin Lee Florence , shows what a powerful thing it is to have a highly adept artist at the helm and a tremendously talented backing band providing additional instrumentation to that artist's creations. This release, due out on September 16, 2014 from Fluff & Gravy Records , has a handful of notable qualities, but mostly that its songs are well-written and nicely executed offerings which get better with each listen.

Across the Great Divide: The Band, "Endless Highway" from Before the Flood

By the time "Endless Highway," a never-before-released Robbie Robertson meditation on the awful rigors of touring, appeared as part of this raucous tour document with Bob Dylan, the Band had been batting it around for some time. Archival takes give us a rare glimpse into that process, and important clues as to why the track never made it onto an official release - despite the fact that it dovetailed so perfectly with the theme and tone of, say, Cahoots .
