Biography

For about six years, from 1968 through 1975, the Band was one of the most popular and influential rock groups in the world, their music embraced by critics (and, to a somewhat lesser degree, the public) as seriously as the music of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Their albums were analyzed and reviewed as intensely as any records by their one-time employer and sometime mentor Bob Dylan. ... Read more in Amazon's The Band Store

A fantastic introduction to the Band and their music. From the first 4 songs building up a raw feel until the classic interruption of the Weight, the music flows and keeps the listener on edge. As a sharp contrast to 'the Weight' and its slow progression, 'We can Talk' bursts in, in classic Band feel-good style - a rollercoaster of sounds and rhythms that makes classic driving music!! The middle part of this album culminates in one of the Bands best songs 'Chest Fever' which pulsates along with unbelievable energy. To end off, the music again slows down until the finale of 'I shall Be Released' wonderfully, emotively sung by Richard Manuel at his best. A classic album that shows the three vocal talents of Danko, Helm & Manuel at their most raw and naive yet posessing an unbelievable power and setting the mood of the next album - The Band. Musically inspiring and filled with the most vivd sounds and atmospheres. The extra tracks add some variety but the listener should appreciate the first 11 songs of the original album as a complete story in their own right.

With their down-home gritsy lo-fi sound, and near legendary mystique, when 'The Band' finally dropped their debut it continued the genesis of a story that is still evolving to this day, even as the original members pass away (Levon Helm have only fairly recently passed on at the time of writing this). Having worked closely with Dylan for several years, some of his mystique had rubbed off on the band, so to speak.

Many people (Helm included, according to his testimony on the excellent Classic Albums DVD about their second album) see Music From Big Pink and The Band as two parts of the same pie. Personally I think The Band only recorded one out and out masterpiece, and that's their next one, simply called The Band. Whereas that album has numerous classics, such as 'Across the Great Divide', 'The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down', 'Up on Cripple Creek', the devastating 'Whispering Pines' and 'King Harvest (Has Surely Come)', with all the other tracks (even 'Jemima Surrender', the closest thing to filler on the album stands up pretty well) making a very strong showing.

Big Pink is, by comparison, much patchier and uneven. 'Chest fever' includes a short blast of Garth Hudson's famous keys intro, and the song itself was a live favourite, but in the studio it lacks something of the live energy, and sounds a little ponderous (to me at any rate). 'This Wheel's On Fire' (a title Helm used for his autobiography) is an oddity, which sounds the most dated of all the tracks on their first two albums, and I can't disassociate it from it's use as the theme to TV's Ab Fab!

It really is 48 years since its release. The music is superlative. There has never been anyone quite like the Band and there brand of rural sounding rock and roll seeming to be rooted in a non specific past. The musicianship is wonderful.
This, their first album contains three of Dylan's basement tape songs. All of them great. Otherwise the album mostly showcases the emerging songwriting talent of Robbie Robertson. The cover of Long Black Veil is perhaps the weakest song but like the rest of the album is beautifully performed .
In the past I've owned this on vinyl and also have the non- remastered CD. I bought the download of the remastered album and I do think it worth the modest price even apart from the extra tracks which actually are pretty limited in what they add although do have curiosity value.
If was advising anyone who is tuning in to the Band for the first time I would advise them not to buy any of the compilations but start here to collect all their albums ( which are precious few) . At the very least buy this, The Band, Stagefright and Cahoots and maybe The Last Waltz. But by then you'll want the rest which are more patchy but sill contain rewards.

Format: Audio CD
Largely influential on the currently voguish Americana and alt. country scene, this first album grew out of the music the Band were creating with Bob Dylan at the house Big Pink, near Woodstock NY in 1967, and includes several new Bob Dylan songs - I Shall Be Released, This Wheel's On Fire and Tears Of Rage, the latter two co-written with the members of the Band who sing them. Probably the best known song was the single The Weight, which also appeared in the film Easy Rider (but was not licensed for the soundtrack album). There is one cover, Long Black Veil, which was influential on Robbie Robertson's writing style, and which he learned from Lefty Frizell's version.
If you need to own one Band album, this is the one to go for. It was hugely influential, an album unlike any other, and caused huge ripples across the music fraternity, changing the way people like Eric Clapton experienced and created music.

Beautifully re-mastered this new edition has copious notes and is almost doubled in length with bonus tracks, mostly appearing for the first time. It is fascinating to hear alternative arrangements of some of the songs, such as Lonesome Suzie which turns up with a big band horn arrangement. Musically, it sounds great, but was discarded, rightly, for being inappropriate for the song. A couple of covers recorded for fun, never intended for release on the album, are included - the Stanley Brothers' bluegrass If I Lose, and a less successful stab at the Jazz Allum and Big Bill Broonzy blues standard, Key To The Highway.
Some of the songs were included on The Basement Tapes, the Bob Dylan and the Band album of demos and home-recordings made at Big Pink.
