* "Don't Do It", their version of "Baby Don't You Do It" by Marvin Gaye, the opening track from the live album ''Rock of Ages'' (and also the opening song in the movie of ''The Last Waltz'', although it was the last encore they actually performed at the show.) Marvin Gaye's original is heartfelt enough, but The Band's version is actually kind of terrifying.

** The studio version, which was recorded for ''Cahoots'' but left off the album, lacks the excellent Allen Toussaint horn arrangements of the live version, but is much more raw and features one of Robbie Robertson's best guitar solos.
