The Band

Active since:

For about six years, from 1968 through 1975, the Band was one of the most popular and influential rock groups in the world, their music embraced by critics (and, to a somewhat lesser degree, the public) as seriously as the music of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Their albums were analyzed and reviewed as intensely as any records by their one-time employer and sometime mentor Bob Dylan. And for a long time, their personalities were as recognizable individually to the casual music public as the members of the Beatles. The Band, 1968.Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Richard Manuel, Garth Hudson and Robbie Robertson in the Catskills posing for Music From Big Pink

Amy Helm: What The Flood Leaves Behind

Read "What The Flood Leaves Behind" reviewed by Doug Collette


Amy Helm possesses all the inner direction, motivation and independence of her father, Levon, the drummer and vocalist for The Band. As evidence of those inherent character traits, she projects her personality with no traces of self-consciousness not only in her collaborations--Sisters of the Strawberry Moon's Solstice (New West Records, 2019), produced by the North Mississippi ...

Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac: A Green Sun Sets On The Blue Horizon

Read "Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac: A Green Sun Sets On The Blue Horizon" reviewed by Scott Gudell


There are times when the stars align in a dramatic and symbiotic way. Although Mick Fleetwood had talked about a tribute concert to honor friend and British blues slide guitar giant Peter Green for years, Fleetwood was tenacious and succeeded in bringing together an all-star roster of close to 20 musicians on February 25, 2020, days ...

Gary Vogenson: Shot of Hope

Read "Shot of Hope" reviewed by Doug Collette


If the title of Gary Vogenson's Shot of Hope was not so pertinent to the post-quarantine world, he might well have named it Don't Misunderstand Me Too Quickly. At a quick glance, song choices such as the traditional “The Cuckoo" and Dan Penn and Chip Moman's soul/R&B standard “Do Right Woman" seem predictable. But, juxtaposed as ...

Read "Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition 2CD" reviewed by Doug Collette


In order to more fully appreciate the 50th anniversary edition of the Band's third studio album, Stage Fright (Capitol, 1970), it is best to resist the temptation to go off on tangents regarding the revisionism visited upon the release. The supervision administered by the group's guitarist/songwriter Robbie Robertson may be as questionable as that visited upon ...

Allman Brothers Band: Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection

Read "Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection" reviewed by Doug Collette


The gold-embossed lettering on the front and back cover of the roughly 5" by 7" slipcase enclosing the Allman Brothers Band's box set Trouble No More belies its otherwise generic art work. Yet the graphic design isn't all that gives the lie to an otherwise positive first impression gleaned from 50th Anniversary Collection. A glance at ...

Grateful Dead: Saint of Circumstance: Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ, 6/17/91 (3CD)

Read "Saint of Circumstance: Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ, 6/17/91 (3CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette


Hearing Grateful Dead's Saint of Circumstance is a significantly different experience than seeing it. Both the audio and video recordings of Giants Stadium June 17, 1991 are part of a larger box set, appropriately subtitled Shall We Go, You and I, While We Can? (Rhino, 2019). But the film, featured as last year's annual 'Meetup at ...
