Default The Band

Browsing in the record store today I came across “Music from Big Pink”. Interesting cover art, no track listing on the outside cover, double LP but plays at 45 RPM(!) reissue I assume for higher fidelity.

Growing up in the 1970s, the album “Bob Dylan and the Band: The Basement Tapes” sessions from the same year, 1967*, but released in 1975, I had on the turntable often, but I’ve never really understood The Band or read the book(s).

Anyone care to shed some light on this group?

Thanks in advance


* incorrect: _Music from Big Pink_ was recorded in early 1968
