The Band: Complete Capitol Albums 1968-1977
The best and the rest of Robbie Robertson and company, on vinyl and boxed.
They were well-named. For a couple of precious years at the end of the 1960s, The Band were blessed with a blend of singers, songwriters and players envied by every other group. They brought rock back from psychedelia to earthier basics, forcing fundamental change on everyone from The Beatles to Eric Clapton, who quit Cream and begged to be a Band member instead. Not bad for Dylan’s old backing musicians.
