Customer Review

on 20 March 2006
By the time Stagefright was released in 1970 The Band must have been sinking under the weight of critical acclaim for their first two albums, Music From Big Pink and The Band. Listening to this over 35 years later it is unbelievable anyone could have called this dissapointing. Completely different to the other two albums it has a harder edged feel and is probably more accessable. One thing in common is the brilliant, seemingly effortless musicianship and the very top quality songwriting.
Personal highlights are Strawberry Wine, All La Glory, The Shape I'm In, Daniel and The Sacred Harp and The Rumor. Lowlights don't exist here.
If you like any other Band album you will love this. Only a genius like Garth Hudson could play a solo on an instrument sounding like a stylophone and command your attention throughout and bring a classic like Shape I'm In to a brilliant conclusion. Buy it and see what I mean.
