Product description

Review

Niven... delivers one of the more ambitious and lengthy books in the series, writing about The Band's extraordinary first album in the form of a novella.... Through his eyes we see a fictionalized but historically-rooted account of what it was like to be in or around The Band in 1968. The novella describes the circumstances of the album's creation and its sound, but is more than an oblique work of criticism. It is itself, like its subject, a grand work of art. --Ukula Magazine, Spring 2006

About the Author

John Niven toured and recorded as a guitarist in the Wishing Stones (their sole LP Wildwood owes more than a passing debt to the music of The Band), before becoming an A&R man and working with acts like Travis, Mogwai, and Sigur Ros. He lives just outside of London, and this is his first book.
