Robbie Robertson – The Artist

Jaime Royal “Robbie” Robertson OC (1943 – 2023) was a Canadian musician. He is recognized for his work as lead guitarist for Bob Dylan in the mid-late 1960s and early-mid 1970s; as guitarist and songwriter with the Band from their inception until 1978, and for his career as a solo recording artist. Robertson’s work with the Band was instrumental in creating the Americana music genre. As a songwriter, Robertson is credited with writing “The Weight”, “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”, and “Up on Cripple Creek” with the Band, and had solo hits with “Broken Arrow” and “Somewhere Down the Crazy River”, and many others. He was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Songwriters.

Somewhere Down The Lazy River  – The Song

“Somewhere Down the Lazy River” is a 1987 song by Robbie Robertson, initially released on Robertson’s debut solo album Robbie Robertson, with Sam Llanas on backing vocals. When one of the producers, Daniel Lanois, was asked about the inspiration for “Somewhere Down the Crazy River”, he said that the song was “kind of like a guy with a deep voice telling you about steaming nights in Arkansas”. He went on to say that Robertson was describing his experiences of hanging out in his old neighbourhood of Arkansas with Levon Helm (fellow The Band member) during hot nights in which they were “fishing with dynamite” and had asked a local for directions to “somewhere down the crazy river”. Martin Scorsese directed a music video for the song, his second after directing the Michael Jackson Video for Bad.

The Windy River – The Shape

This record has been cut into the shape of a winding river. A river is a natural flowing watercourse, usually a freshwater stream, flowing on the surface or inside caves towards another waterbody at a lower elevation, such as an ocean, sea, bay, lake, wetland, or another river. In some cases, a river flows into the ground or becomes dry at the end of its course without reaching another body of water. Small rivers can be referred to by names such as creek, brook, and rivulet.
