THE BAND Carter Barron Amphitheater - Washington, DC - July 17th 1976 CD
Top Customer Reviews
Recorded only a few months before The Last Waltz, this is still well worth having even for those of us who own and love that classic - arguably one of the greatest live albums ever issued. This is The Band alone without the starry guest list, performing a very good cross section of their greatest songs. Most are simply superb - The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down and The Weight , for example, have never sounded better or more sincere to my ears - and they sing and play like the geniuses they were almost throughout the album.
There are one or two weaker tracks, I think. King Harvest Will Surely Come plods and clunks a bit and This Wheel's On Fire lacks the real bite and vein of venom it really needs to work perfectly, for example, but overall it's a very fine live album indeed. The sound quality is excellent and the sense of a great band playing brilliantly together is strong. There is almost no talk between songs and the audience noise is mixed well back which I like on an album I will listen to repeatedly, but if you prefer more chat and atmosphere it may possibly be a slight weakness. For me, though, this is a fine record of a very good performance by one of the greatest bands of the 60s and 70s.
It is sobering to remember that Richard Manuel, Rick Danko and Levon Helm are all dead now, but this stands as a fine tribute to them and to Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson. Very warmly recommended.
This one, however, is excellent quality, and from a period between two of my favourite albums - Northern Lights/Southern Cross and Islands (perhaps just before Islands was recorded, I think?), and not long before The Last Waltz concerts.
This, though, is a little bit more "raw" than the polished Waltz performance, and I suspect closer to a typical Band gig at that time. The final quarter, with Dixie fading into Garth Hudson's lengthy intro to Chest Fever, then into Cripple Creek, so typical of their diversity of style.
I consider myself fortunate to have managed to see (most of) The Band live in Norway twice during their early-mid 90's reunion (without Robbie Robertson sadly), and Rick Danko together with his buddies Eric Andersen & Jonas Fjeld, before his untimely death in 1999. This recording, though, is from a time when a truly influential group of musicians, who created a sound that has never been equalled, were still on a high.
The Keyhole label has been producing some interesting live recordings recently, largely very good quality too.
It is acknowledged as a superb concert.
The old 4000 seater on a warm night has been used so maybe you need to turn up the heat a little, sit back in your rocking or other chair and enjoy. If you spot any typos etc just add a comment and before you can say 'Up On Cripple Creek' I will adjust and correct the list and credit you with your sharp eyes and patience.
For those in the know please ignore the last track on the CD ( I add this because all my listings seem to be copied and pasted along with mistakes and typos and printed elsewhere without giving me any credit for compiling the list in the first place.
That all important essential Track listing: is
1. Don't Do It
2. The Shape I'm In
3. It Makes No Difference
4. The Weight
5. King Harvest (Has Surely Come)
8. Tears of Rage
9. Forbidden Fruit
10. This Wheel's On Fire
11. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
12. The Genetic Method
13. Chest Fever
14. Up On Cripple Creek
15. The W.S. Wolcott Medicine Show
16. Up On Hornsea Mere.
