The Band

Deluxe five disc (four CDs + DVD) edition. During the final week of 1971, The Band played four legendary concerts at New York City's Academy Of Music, ushering in the New Year with electrifying performances, including new horn arrangements by Allen Toussaint and a surprise guest appearance by Bob Dylan for a New Year's Eve encore. Select highlights from the concerts were compiled for The Band's classic 1972 double LP, Rock Of Ages, which peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200 and remains a core album in the trailblazing group's storied Capitol Records catalog. For the first time, all four of the concerts' multi-track recordings have been revisited for Live At The Academy Of Music 1971, which takes a deep dive into The Band's historic shows for a definitive document of the pioneering group's stage prowess at the apex of their career.
