5.0 out of 5 stars a magical journey, 15 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Music from Big Pink (Audio CD)
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.
