* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: Originally a 3-LP (later 2-CD) set, ''The Last Waltz'' soundtrack album was expanded into a 4-CD box set for the film's 25th anniversary, with many additional performances from the concert, a few live rehearsal versions, some studio outtakes, etc.
** ''Live at the Academy of Music 1971'' is a 4-CD/1-DVD set of performances from the shows that the ''Rock of Ages'' album was taken from, including an unedited soundboard recording of the complete 12/31/71 show and 5.1 surround mixes on the DVD.

* CanadaEh: All of the members came from Canada, except for Arkansas native Levon Helm. Occasionally you can hear it in the singing (like the way Danko pronounces "sorry" in "The Unfaithful Servant").

* UsefulNotes/SevenYearsWar: "Acadian Driftwood"

to:

* UsefulNotes/SevenYearsWar: "Acadian Driftwood"Driftwood" (some ArtisticLicenseHistory, since the expulsion of the Acadians was actually one of the events that led to the breakout of the full war. Also, "what went down on the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plains_of_Abraham Plains of Abraham]]" happened several years later, but Plains of Abraham is just [[RuleOfCool too cool]] ''not'' to use in a song lyric).

* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: ''Islands'' was basically a collection of leftovers and has lots of [[OutOfCharacterMoment Out Of Character Moments]] for the group, like a mellow [[ChristmasSongs Christmas Song]] ("Christmas Must Be Tonight"), an EasyListening instrumental ("Islands") and a bizarre song about AncientAstronauts ("The Saga of Pepote Rouge").

Helm and Robertson were a particularly nasty example of this trope, though they reportedly patched things up as Helm lay dying.dying.
** There was some bitterness between the guys and Ronnie Hawkins for a while after they broke away from him.


Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveFailedMe: The Hawks splitting from Ronnie Hawkins happened because of a botched attempt at this by Hawkins. Rick Danko starting bringing his girlfriend to shows, which violated Hawkins' stipulation that band members had to be free to mingle with audience members (particularly females) between sets. Hawkins fired Danko, but the other Hawks, who'd been pondering leaving Hawkins for a while, promptly quit when they heard the news.

* TakeThat: Helm's vituperative autobiography, ''This Wheel's on Fire'', filled with invective directed at Robertson.

* TakeThat: Helm's vituperative autobiography, ''This Wheel's on Fire'', filled with invective directed at Robertson. Robertson's autobiography ''Testimony'' is a bit more tactful, but his portrait of Helm isn't all that positive either.

* ArtisticStimulation: Helm, Danko and Manuel all had addiction issues over the years, with drugs being contributing factors in Danko's and Manuel's deaths. This all inspired Robertson to write a song about heroin addiction ("Forbidden Fruit"). In his autobiography, Robertson makes it clear that he wasn't a novice at drug use himself (mainly [[TheStoner weed]]).
