Folksingers the Traum brothers became friends of the Band and Bob Dylan during their "Big Pink" period in Woodstock. On their 1969 debut album Happy and Artie Traum they do a version of the Rick Danko / Robbie Robertson's song "Bessie Smith" (later released by The Band on The Basement Tapes) using the song title "Going Down to See Bessie". Members of the Band have been present on some of the Traums' later work in the '80s and '90s.

A live, acoustic, version of "Bessie Smith" by the Traum brothers, listed under the title "Goin' Down The Road To See Bessie", was included on the Japanese album Live at The Bearsville Theater Vol.1 (Woodstock Mountain Revue, 1990, Pony Canyon Inc, PCCY-00073, 1990).
