180-gram vinyl 9LP box set!

Pressed at Quality Record Pressings

For roughly half a decade, 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. Although The Band retired from touring after The Last Waltz and disbanded several years later, their legacy thrived for decades, perpetuated by the bandmates' respective solo careers as well as the enduring strength of The Band's catalog.

It seems odd that The Band emerged in 1968, defying the counterculture's extravagant rejections of U.S. culture with literary, often Southern-tinged musical and lyrical vehicles. What still stands out is the Band's command of yearning vocal harmonies, their sense of plainly laid melodies that reveal acoustic depth, and a nostalgia for an imagined American culture.

This box set includes eight classic albums from The Band on 180-gram vinyl including Music From The Big Pink, The Band, Stage Fright, Cahoots, Rock of Ages, Moondog Matinee, Northern Lights - Southern Cross and Islands. First 4 titles are only available in this box set. All artwork is true to original releases. Albums are packaged in a rigid box.
