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

Product Description

Product Description

THE BAND Rock Of Ages - The Band In Concert (2001 issue UK 28-track 2-CD album which compiles live recordings made during their series of shows at the Academy of Music in New York City between 28th - 31st December 1971 featuring 10 Bonus Recordings including the special guest appearance by Bob Dylan on the New Years Eve for Down In The Flood When I Paint My Masterpiece Dont Ya Tell Henry and Like A Rolling Stone complete with the picture booklet containing images from the shows and extensive sleevenotes)

Amazon.co.uk

Rock of Ages is a gift from the group long celebrated as one of rock's best concert attractions... and on New Year's Eve 1971 the Band were at the top of their game. Their show that night was hailed as one of the greatest-ever live sets--and a hint of that magic came through on 1972's truncated Rock Of Ages. Now radically expanded, the new double CD only enhances the original's reputation. Praise from Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Eric Clapton has established the Band as musicians' musicians--and their instrumental dexterity, musical fluency and lyrical intrigue are to the fore here, notably on "Stage Fright" and "The Weight". There is also the bonus of an entire disc of previously unreleased tracks--including a blistering cover of "Loving You is Sweeter than Ever". But the real gold is mined on the four tracks featuring special guest Bob Dylan, then in the midst of his mysterious withdrawal. Rock of Ages was always great. This restoration makes it greater still. --Patrick Humphries

Format: Audio CD
What a terrific album: expanded from the original issue with a full CD of extra material and new liner notes, this set features almost all The Band's best songs, recorded live with a great horn section on many tracks.

The set also features four songs from surprise guest Bob Dylan, including When I Paint My Masterpiece and two Basement Tapes songs, Don't Ya Tell Henry and Down in the Flood.

The unreleased songs are great, particularly I Shall be Released, Rockin Chair and Loving You is Sweeter than Ever. The latter is a good complement to Don't Yo Do It, the concert opener. Have a listen to Rick's bass in these two songs, very funky indeed.

The sound is crisp and clear, but also has warmth, with bass, drums and piano beautifully recorded and mixed. All the musicians and singers are in great form and I can't think of a dud track, even the Dylan numbers have a groovy sloppiness about them.

Note that the original CD issue was also a double set, but just had the original vinyl tracks spread over the CDs. This set has all the original album on the first CD, so be sure to order the new one!

RIP Rick Danko and Richard Manuel.

This is not only one of the best, if not the best, live album of all time, but also one of the BEST albums of all time, which would then also make it one of the best concerts ever. Fantastic! The Band is so tight that despite the cheers from the crowd, you would think that this is a studio album. The Band is an unusual combination of raw, mountainish, almost garage-like band music with extreme versatility and tightness. The version of The Weight on this album is arguably the best that they ever performed this song (not that crazy about the studio version) and they do an outstanding version of Marvin Gaye's Don't Do It with all of the NY horns. Every single song on this album is done at a high level - I would have loved attending this concert. This is a must for any music collection. A masterpiece.

"The Last waltz" had an array of popular stars that attracted a lot of attention to the music of The Band. However "Rock Of Ages" was the live album that set the standard for all live albums to follow. Immaculate production \ recording by Phil Ramone and Alan Touisaint's horn arrangements agument a fine group performance. All the best loved Band tunes are here. This C.D completes the picture by including the "Dylan" encore performance.

Format: Audio CD
This is one of THE great Rock N Roll bands captured live on New Years Eve 1971/72. With tracks from "Music from the Big pink" and "The Band" as well as "Stage Fright" this has most of The Bands best material on it. To add a bit of spice the The Band are supported by a top notch horn section (all Jazz and session men) who are arranged by Allen Toussaint the noted New Orleans producer/singer/pianist.

Its all superb, but my favourite non-Band track is "(I Don't Want To) Hang Up My Rock and Roll Shoes". This is superb super-charged straight ahead Rock N Roll. Of their original material Rick Danko's tremendous reading of "Unfaithful Servant" with that subtle but devastating guitar solo by Robbie Robertson takes some beating. The extra tracks, which were never on the original CD release are just as good if not better. These include four tracks with Bob Dylan, including "Like a Rolling Stone". This is without doubt up there with the best live albums ever recorded and should be in everybodies collection.

I bought this album when it first came out in 1972 and loved it, so when I saw it on cd i decided to buy it thinking it would be an exact copy of the LP version but was delighted to find there were extra tracks included- in particular the wonderful -'Rag mama rag'-.The quality of the sound is excellent and as usual with Amazon the delivery and packaging was also faultless. Everyone who loved this period should not be without this and I do not hesitate in recommending it.

Originally issued in 1972 as a double live album, 'Rock of Ages' captures The Band in concert at the height of their powers. Over the piece, for my money, there are more 'best' versions here than on the still staggeringly good 'Last Waltz' set. And the horn section are truely awesome and beautifully recorded! In all honesty, the second CD of songs with Dylan and some extra Band numbers, doesn't add an awful lot, though thanks all the same.

In it's original form, this was one of the great live albums. Still is!

Right folks, if you're starting a band this is how to play a concert. Before you assemble in the hall, get a CD player and put this album on. Listen and listen good. Right, now see if you are up to the task... The Band always were; this album displays them in their finest form.

Great singing, great playing and - most importantly, and unforgettably - great songs.

Pure quality. The greatest live album ever.

Cannot really express how good this cd is. The Band with a horn section which fits in very well to their music. A new remixed version of this concert recently released but with the horn section nearly taken off and is nowhere as good as this one. All the classic songs of The Band and some Bob Dylan as well. Good purchase.
