Playing For Change’s latest release, a cover of The Band’s epic “The Weight” featuring Robbie Robertson and Ringo Starr, is a viral video sensation on the song’s 50th anniversary.

“We made it brick by brick, starting with Robbie” Playing For Change co-founder Mark Johnson, a Grammy-winning producer-engineer, told Rolling Stone. “That’s what makes this special. We could never have never assembled this group in the studio. You need to go there, and then when you go there, you’re where they feel comfortable. You hear that in the music.”
