Format: Audio CD
The Band are famous as Bob Dylan's musicians but they also (eventually) had their own career, brilliantly represented on this collection, which includes extensive liner notes. The music they made on their own was very different to Bob's.
The collection begins with a live cover of Chuck Berry's Back to Memphis, previously unreleased. Next come six tracks from The Band's debut album, Music from the Big Pink. The six tracks chosen include covers of I shall be released and Long black veil as well as four original songs, the most famous of these being The weight. The others are Tears of rage, To kingdom come and Chest fever.
Five songs are taken from their eponymous second album, including their only American top thirty hit, Up on Cripple Creek. Nevertheless, the most famous track on this album is The night they drove old Dixie down. Although this is the original version - and it is brilliant - it was Joan Baez who had the hit single. The other three songs from this album are Rag Mama rag, Unfaithful servant and King harvest has surely come. Sandwiched between these tracks is a live recording of a cover of Loving you is sweeter than ever, the Four tops classic.
The Band were a rebellious bunch and decided that things were getting way too serious so their next album (Stage fright) was intended to be a lightweight, fun album - however, it didn't work out that way due to line-up changes. Nevertheless, one of the tracks (The W S Walcott medicine show) is a much lighter type of song and shows what might have been. Other tracks from Stage fright included here are the title track, The shape I'm in and Daniel and the sacred harp. This completes the first CD.
The second CD opens with a cover of a Motown song originally recorded by Marvin Gaye in 1964.

The BAND is my favourite group of all time. I first heard their music in the late 60's while watching the road movie 'Easyrider' and just had to find out who they were and more importantly, what else had they recorded. I discovered the albums 'Music from Big Pink', and 'The Band' and I was dumstruck by the originality of their lyrics and melodies.
Over the following ten years or so I purchased most stuff by The Band up until their split in the late 70's. It's only in the last twelve or so years that I've read the books and watched the videos and very recently bought the later albums post The Last Waltz which are all pretty good actually. (I'd somehow got the impression back then that they were well below PAR.)
Sadly, 3 out of 5 original Band members are not with us any longer and to most, their music has long since disapeared into oblivion.
'To Kingdom Come' is the most complete 'best of' album, in my opinion. Whether your after something for the Ipod, or an introduction to a unique group of individuals who collectively changed the face of music forever. You won't be disapointed.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 17 July 2010
Format: Audio CD
Unlike most music fans this reviewers introduction to the Band came many years ago through the Bob Dylan live album "Before the flood" where Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel and Garth Hudson perform eight classic Band songs and support his Bobness in delivering some of the most blistering, sharp rock versions of a range of classics, with Highway 61 Revisited in particular being absolutely raucous. No matter how good this live set is it was approaching the Band from the wrong end of the lens. It is hard to describe today how their first two albums "Music from the Big Pink" and "The Band" completely revolutionised music. The first album released in 1968 at the height of the "psychedelic" era, harked back to something deeper in American life and music which has been charted so brilliantly in Griel Marcus's "Indivisible Republic" a book on the sources for work that Dylan and the Band produced on the legendary "Basement tapes". Look at the cover of their second album and that is not a bunch late 60s hippies; its more a picture of civil war era Americans that could have been taken a day after the Battle of Spotsylvania. Thus musicians as diverse as Eric Clapton, Richard Thompson and the Grateful Dead listened to the Band and took two steps backs and totally changed direction. Even today Band influences can be found everywhere on the cutting edge in Mercury Rev (Hudson played on Deserters songs), Fleet Foxes and My Morning Jacket.

The reason for this huge shadow the Band has cast can be found in this excellent retrospective of their career ranging from "Big Pink" to "Islands". You could argue that some tracks could have been drawn from "Rock of Ages" their great live album but frankly nearly every Band song you want on set is here.
