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

Format: Audio CD
As a big fan of The Band, I decided to save up my money and purchase the A Musical History box set, and was for the most part very happy with my purchase--it's got a great photo-filled book, disc one is almost entirely made up of early, unreleased Hawks tracks, there's a DVD with some rare performances, and the rest of the set is full of great unreleased and live treasures alongside an anthology of music that spans The Band's career through The Last Waltz--in a way A Musical History is both a greatest hits AND a rarities collection, but a relatively expensive one. Since the box set had so many great extras, it was worth it to me (a big fan) to re-purchase all of the standard album tracks I already had that came along with the set. This CD, The Best of A Musical History, is a one-disc collection drawn from the box set. Unfortunately, though it's less expensive, it accomplishes neither the task of being a good 'greatest hits' album nor the task of being a good collection of rarities. Although the music here is good, it's kind of a hodgepodge collection and I can't say I'd recommend it to anyone who's either interested in a one-disc 'best of' or a collection of rarities.

To start with, the box set's first disc is only represented by two songs, "Who Do You Love?" and "He Don't Love You." This is a shame, since that first disc is crammed with early Band tunes that fans have likely never heard. Conversely, these two rarities are good listens, but don't really qualify as "greatest hits" caliber songs. This CD also contains a number of the box set's other rare tracks, like the Dylan single "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?

While I agree that the purchase of the first three - or even just the first two - Band albums would be a much better introduction to their music, and that the box set is really well done, at the current price of five bucks, this download gives you 16 great songs by a great band and that's much better than a sharp stick in the eye.

If you want to add some of The Band's music to your mp3 player, or introduce someone to the range of their music this is a cheap way to do it.

Currently offered at the dirt cheap price of $5, this music is part of the American landscape. If you have any curiosity about The Band, this is a great place to start. I'm too big a fan to be objective about each song -- they're all good! Give it a try.
