Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 1994, The Band (Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, and Robbie Robertson) got their start in Canada as The Hawks, backing blues-rocker Ronnie Hawkins. In 1965 they connected with Bob Dylan and became his famed electric backing unit. In 1967 The Band embarked upon a solo course that would span ten years and 11 albums. By 1976 they were ready to call it a day after 16 years together. That Thanksgiving night they staged an historic final performance dubbed The Last Waltz that celebrated their many musical milestones in a near-formal concert-hall setting at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom. Augmented by a 7-piece horn section and an orchestra, The Band played all their favorite songs and welcomed as guest performers more than a dozen musical mentors and peers who had all been there along the way. And as icing on the cake, celebrated filmmaker Martin Scorsese documented the whole event for theatrical release. No group before or since has gone out in such opulent style. This is a 2-CD distillation of Rhino's deluxe 2002 4-CD boxed-set restoration. It presents the complete 30-song track listing from the original 1978 triple-LP release, remixed by The Band's Robbie Robertson and newly remastered for incredible clarity.
