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

The cover of the Boss' Atlantic City is my favorite version of the song.

It seems I've changed my mind about this album a couple times, but this time I've changed it for good.
Bud Sturguess
"Shine a Light" is a gospel-inspired song, with shifting lead vocals from Danko and Helm.

I've owned this disc since it's release, but feel compelled to comment on it now, after Rick Danko's untimely death. Forget about the excellent rendition of Dylan's "Blind Willie McTell" and the wonderfully crafted cover of Springsteen's "Atlantic City." Buy this for the sheer pleasure of listening to Danko's beautiful sad voice on "Too Soon Gone." The song title says it all. Rest in Peace, Rick and Richard.

It seems I've changed my mind about this album a couple times, but this time I've changed it for good.
There are many cases in rock and roll history when a principle songwriter leaves a group and assumes he's left his bandmates in the dust; the remaining members regroup and go on to continued success, but their fan base and their critics become divided as to whether they're still "the real deal" or not (the likes of Pink Floyd and Supertramp come to mind). And who knew The Band would join those ranks when they released "Jericho" in 1993, their first studio album since 1977's "Islands," and their first without former songwriter Robbie Robertson (and member Richard Manuel, who committed suicide in 1986).
Robertson's claim as to why he has not participated with his former colleagues is as follows; "We'd made a movie [The Last Waltz] about it and everything. I didn't want to say 'Just kidding!'" However, the album "Jericho" itself has not made "The Last Waltz" a lie; even Robertson says that the Waltz was meant to be an end to their touring days only, and that The Band had intentions of continuing their studio career. In fact, Band members were talking about the possibility of another studio album as late as 1980. However, the "reunion tours" of the 80s did make "The Last Waltz" a questionable event. But since the Waltz only represented the end of touring, a new studio album does not hender the original meaning of one of the greatest concert films of all time. If that was the case, "Islands" would have made The Band liars in 1977. But since that's not the case, "Jericho" is nothing more than a triumph for The Band.
Longtime members Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, and Levon Helm welcome sidemen Jim Weider, Richard Bell, and Randy Ciarlante to make one of their most sincere, honest albums.

If you were to own one CD by The Band since the departure of Robbie Robertson then this is it. Blind Willie Mctell and Atlantic City are outstanding covers but the original material is by no means to be overlooked. There isn't a bad song on here and the sound and feel of this recording is well as if they showed up to record and picked up their instruments up off the floor where they left em 20 odd years ago and just started jamming. Like an old friend whom you haven't seen in a while this CD is one to sit down to and get re-acquainted. An outstanding offering and in my opinion the best work they have done post Robertson,yes even better than Jubilation.

This is certainly The Band, even though some, for nostalgic reasons, would disagree. This sounds like The Band, with a bluesier feel to it than it used to be "way back when".
I miss Robertsons songwriting and Manuels voice (well, you get one song from Manuel here)and piano too, but to put this off just because of that is not fair- everything changes!
The only thing "bad" I have to say about this recording is the lack of own material, but they certainly put new fire into other peoples material. Bruce Springsteen's "Atlantic City" is just amazing here, and Springsteen himself has stated in interviews that he was honored that The Band asked him if they could use his song. He was very pleased with the result!
Buy it, you wont be dissapointed!! These wheels are still on fire...

I was a big fan of the original Band, especially their first 3 albums, which I bought when they were originally released. I also bought "Cahoots", but the album never really "hit" me, and though I liked several songs on later albums like "Moondog Matinee", "Northern Lights" and "Islands", I more or less forgot about them until Capitol began their reissue series of all their albums with extensive sleeve notes and great bonus-tracks.

I knew they had reformed and recorded new albums in the 1990's, but with Richard Manuel gone Robbie Robertson gone, I had a feeling that these recordings would be disappointing and only pale reminders of what once was. How wrong you can be!!

"Jericho" was their first re-union studio album, with original members Helm, Danko and Hudson together with guitarist Jim Weider, Drummer Ciarlante and Richard Bell on piano.

"Remedy" sets the scene right from the beginning. Classic Band sound, with Helm vocally in good form and horns that bring up memories of old albums like "Rock of All Ages" of "Cahoots" - written by Weider and Colin Linden.

"Blind Willie McTell" is a completely stunning recording - it has all the best qualities of classic Band. Great melodic tune (Dylan) and outsstanding changing lead vocals from Danko and Helm. Moreover I really enjoy the acoustic guitar and Hudson's harmonica. The song wouldn't have sounded out of place on "Northern Lights, Southern Cross".

"Jericho" is an almost equally strong track - sounds like a Robertson song. Could have been a forgotten track from the "Brown" album sessions.

The high standards are continued with the Band's version of Bruce Sprinsteen's "Atlantic City" - sung by Helm with harmony vocals from Danko.
