The Band Live At The Academy Of Music 1971 Unboxing

Biography

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. ... Read more in Amazon's The Band Store

A great Richard Manuel performance.
oraw
This album from the reformed Band in 1996 is a great listen and it displays The Band's rock and roll side quite effectively.
Craig
While both artists have their good points and bad points, they obviously need each other.

Of the three 1990s Band releases, this is widely regarded as the weakest...but it's not without its pleasures (Back to Memphis, Free Your Mind, Rick Danko on Where I Should Always Be and Richard Manuel's She Knows). If you have the classic Band albums from 1968-1976 and want to give their 90s albums a try, I recommend starting with Jericho or Jubilation. But if you have everything except this album, I'd say it's still worth picking up...as has been said many times before, even the worst of the Band is better than most groups at their best.

High on the Hog is the eleventh album by Canadian-American rock group The Band released in 1996. It is the second studio album of The Band in its latter-days lineup. As with its predecessor, 1993's Jericho, it relies heavily on cover versions; only two tracks are original. Songs include Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" (a song The Band originally backed Dylan on), done as a tribute to Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, Blondie Chaplin's "Where I Should Always Be", a song in the tradition of "Whispering Pines" (from the 1969 eponymous album), the cover of Johnnie Johnson and The Kentucky Headhunters' "Back to Memphis", which features layers of horns by Garth Hudson and the closer "Ramble Jungle", with Champion Jack Dupree growling out barely intelligible vocals over a pastiche of African music.

The British and Japanese pressings of the album closed with a different track, "Young Blood", which only appeared in the United States on a tribute album to Doc Pomus.
Track listing as follows:
1. "Stand Up" (Bruce Channel, Ricky Ray Rector) - 3:07
2. "Back To Memphis" (Johnnie Johnson, A. Kenney, M. Orr, G. Martin, F. Young, R. Young) - 5:10
3. "Where I Should Always Be" (Blondie Chaplin) - 4:27
4. "Free Your Mind" (Denzil Foster, Thomas McElroy) - 5:05
5. "Forever Young" (Bob Dylan) - 6:30
6. "The High Price of Love" (Jules Shear, Stan Szelest, The Band) - 5:58
7. "Crazy Mama" (J. J. Cale) - 4:48
8. "I Must Love You Too Much" (Bob Dylan, Helena Springs) - 3:32
9. "She Knows" (James Griffin, Robb Royer) - 3:21

If you're looking for the good-timey, not-too-heavy-on-the-lyrics, straight-ahead music Band, you'll enjoy this. But Jericho it's not: if you're looking for more thoughtful lyrics, more complex arrangements, that's the album to get from this period. Overall, this feels most like Rick's album. Fun but not life-changing.

An awesome collection that is worth the price of admission alone on the strength of She Knows alone. A great Richard Manuel performance. There are numerous strong performances on this album. This is generally considered to be the weakest of the 3 latter day Band releases but still very good. I would say keep an eye out for Where I Should Always Be, that is a really awesome track that doesn't get enough mention.
The really cool thing about Jericho, Jubilation, and High on The Hog is that they are using a lot more instrumentation, more like Rock of Ages vibe but on a smaller scale. The voices are in fine condition and the playing is great and they have a monster list of great guitarists that play with them which outside of the songwriting factor more than adequately fill for Robertson. They also give a lot more free reign to Garth on the tracks and that jkust gives you even more respect for what a master he is.
I say pick it up, it is really good.

OK, so the re-formed Band's second low-budget disc wasn't quite up to the quality of their first, "Jericho," but there's still a lot to like here: Danko's beautiful falsetto on the gorgeous Blondie Chaplin tune "Where I Should Always Be"; the bluesy "Back to Memphis"; a slow-cooking "Crazy Mama"; the fast-boiling "Love You Too Much"; and another archival Richard Manual recording. If only other groups with 10 times the budget could consistently come up with music this good.

The Band is a great band, and still has a small amount of magic back. Some tracks shines more than others, but there are to many tracks who dissapoints. Track 1 Stand Up, in it`s "walkalong" tempo glimmers right trough. It shows creativity and has flair. Track 2 Back to Memphis is a letdown, sorry to say. It`s too slow, and a weird vocaljob that sounds like Bob Dylan on a bad day, doesn`t help either.

Track 3 Where I should always be, has more power as a nice ballad, with a very "airy and open" soundpicture all trough. Track 4 Free your mind, is a more uptempo song, with a "bigband beat" that has a certain "sting". It delivers, but nothing special . But hey, on Track 5 Forever Young we are back in "god ole Band mood". This has the trademarks of a The Band. It`s written by Bob Dylan, and it`s a tribute to Jerry Garcia. Garth Hudson`s organ play sneak`s in to your`e soul, as on every "great" Band song`s. Track 6 The High Prize of Love, is a little let down, once again. It`s very "muddy" and to distorted to have a great listen too. Track 7 Crazy Mama, is a different cup of tea. As a blues rocker this one delivers, with a good strong backbeat that pushes the song forward in the right direction to the end. Track 8 I must love you to much, is a fast rocker, that has a enough tempo and beat to make you put on your`e rock and roll shoes.

Track 9 She knows, is a traditonal ballad, which delivers in a slow jazzy mood, but it`s not up there. It`s anyway nice to

listen to as a "late night gem" but nothing special. Track 10 Rumble Jungel, is a "musical rumble to the jungle" and sounds like it, with a weird vocal to carry it trough. Track 11 Young Blood, is a Leiber/ Stoller Classic. The Band does it in a "slow up tempo beat" . Quite okei. Anyway. This is The band, with`too many up`s and downs on a variable CD.
