I had always been under the impression that all Band albums after Robbie and the Last Walz Farewell concert were well below par.
Jubilation is surprisingly good. Rick's and Levon's vocals are as good as ever and Garth (The Master) does what he's always done best.
I've also just purchased 'High on Hog' and 'Jericho' for approx. £8 each from another site (too expensive from Amazon) and both are extremely good. Each album features one track by Richard (obviously recorded prior to his death). Listen to 'Country Boy' on Jericho and remember why he was the Band's favoured vocalist. The song really is superb.

This may not be The Band in their late 60's heyday, but along with their 4th LP Cahoots this album is vastly underrated by reviewers and fans alike. It is probably worth 4.5 stars. A great collection of songs and musicianship of consistent quality throughout.

The final album by the Band. And actually it's good.
Although the departure of Robbie Robinson and the death of Richard Manuel deprived the group of their main songwriter and lead guitarist together with a distinctive voice they retained many of the features which made their sound unique ie the voices of Rick Danko and Levon Helm together with the keyboards of Garth Hudson.
The songs have been well chosen and beautifully performed by the remaining original members and the very able replacements. Suffice it to say this is still an album by the Band ( as were the equally good, High on The Hog and Jericho).
