Produktbeschreibungen

kulturnews.de

Als Bob Dylan 1966 durch England tourte, machte er sich unbeliebt, als er tönte, seine Begleitcombo The Hawks sei die beste Band der Welt, besser als Beatles und Stones. Das US-kanadische Quintett, das sich bald in The Band umbenannte, hatte zwar nie deren Erfolg, bewirkte aber mitten in der psychedelischen Ära einen Paradigmenwechsel ersten Ranges: „Music from Big Pink" pulversierte 1968 den Trip-Pop. Statt um Rausch- und Rauchwolken ging es ihnen um die Urmythen Amerikas - und darum, wie weit man schauen kann, wenn man auf den Schultern gigantischer Ahnen steht. Dieses gewaltige Boxset (fünf CDs, eine DVD!) folgt nun dem verschlungenen Weg der Band durch die Musikgeschichte Amerikas, die sie nach „Big Pink" selbst mitprägen sollten. Von den Anfängen bei Ronnie Hawkins bis zum melancholischen Finale furioso („The last Waltz", 1976) führt die Reise, und es ist eine, bei der Blues, Folk, Soul und Rock zu jener Melange verschwimmen und verschmelzen, die man hilflos nur als „Americana" bezeichnen kann. 102 remasterte Songs (davon 37 unveröffentlicht!), ein 108 Seiten starkes Booklet und rare Live- und Session-Clips machen das Coffeetable-Set unverzichtbar für alle, die sich für die beste Band der Welt interessieren. Mick und Paul haben bestimmt schon ihr Exemplar. (mw)

Format: Audio CD
The Band A musical history ist eine Kombination aus 5 Cd´s, 1 DVD und einem Buch mit einem interessanten Einblick in die Geschichte der Band mit vielen tollen Bildern. Allein die äußere Aufmachung ist ein Kunstwerk. Sehr edles Material und mit sehr viel Liebe gemacht.
Diese Anthology fährt zweigleisig. Sie versucht einerseits dem eingefleischten Fan mit unveröffentlichem oder rarem Material zu begeistern, andererseits neue Hörer mit den Albumversionen ihrer größten Hits zu gewinnen.
The Band gehört zu den bedeutendsten Bands der Musikgeschichte. Sie verbinden wie keine andere Band die traditionellen Musikrichtungen Amerikas Blues, Folk, Country, Gospel, Rock´n Roll und schaffen fabelhafte Rockmusik. Mit Songs wie The weight (für mich der beste Song aller Zeiten) oder The night they drove old Dixie down haben sie zeitlose Klassiker und Meilensteine der Rockgeschichte geschrieben. Beeindruckend neben dem präzisen und nie aufdringlichen Instrumentalspiel, ist vor allem das enorme Gesangspotential der Gruppe. The Band hat drei Sänger mit einzigartigen individuellen Stimmen, die vor allem im harmonischen Gesang überzeugen, da ihre Leidenschaft und Authenzität zu spüren ist. Daneben beherrschen alle ihre Instrumente perfekt. Zu ihren größten Fans zählen Musiker wie Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton oder George Harrison.
Auf den 5 Scheiben sind alle großen Hits ihrer Studioalben enthalten (Sie können dazu meine jeweiligen Rezensionen lesen).

Eine geniale Box, die jedem Fan von The Band das Herz höher schlägen läßt. Uralte, seltene Aufnahmen von Levon & The Hawks und Ronnie Hawkins & The Hawks (viele in Mono) mit noch nie veröffentlichten Aufnahmen, und noch nie auf CD veröffentlichten Aufnahmen.

Das ist ein Querschnitt wie man es sich nicht besser wünschen kann. Hits, Alternate Takes, Künstler wie Emmylou Harris, The Staples, bis hin zur Live-Aufnahme von Last Waltz im Jahre 1976.

Live-Aufnahmen mit Bob Dylan (ich kann mich erinnern: als Before The Flood, die grandiose Doppel-LP mit Bob Dylan veröffentlicht wurde, es ist tagelang nichts anderes gelaufen!!!), sind für mich sowieso mit das Größte an Live Performances, das ist Freude an der Musik pur. Eine kongeniale Verbindung zwischen Bob Dylan and The Band.

Was ich sofort gemacht habe: Die CD`s sind in sehr stabilen Kartonagen auf den letzten Seiten integriert: sie sind schwer herauszunehmen, was bei häufigem Nutzen sicher Kratzer produzieren würde, deshalb sind die CD`s und die DVD sofort in Single Cases zur Aufbewahrung verbracht worden.

Absolute Kaufempfehlung!

Ich hab die € 70 nicht bereut. Das Buch liest sich mit Vergnügen auch wenn man "Helm" und "Hoskins" schon gelesen hat. Die Zusammenstellung ist superb. Beispiellos die Szenen der DVD, bei denen Robertson am Mischpult erklärt, wie die Songs funktionieren. Ebenfalls Klasse, wie Helm sich freut beim Anhören - ebenfalls am Mischpult - und wie man überlegt, wer zum Kuckuck noch mal, eigentlich was gespielt hat.
Die Musik ist unvergleichlich, (man kann wohl nichts Neues mehr dazu sagen) die Aufmachung ist hervorragend, der Titel ist bestenfalls einfallslos, aber kommt es darauf an??? Klasse - auch wenn man "Big Pink" und "The Band" und "Rock of Ages" und "Last Waltz" schon hat.
Es ist wunderbar.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Life is a carnival with The Band 23. Mai 2015
Von Jeffrey Crawford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
The first Band box set (Across the Great Divide) was fine, but underdone with only three discs. A Musical History is far more extensive, covering more of the pre-Dylan period, with far more rarities and demos. This time around there are five discs of amazing music and a DVD featuring a bunch of great performances, all of them pre-Last Waltz. The booklet is well written with brilliant pictures - quite a glossy book that's worth the money on its own, Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A King Harvest Indeed 17. November 2010
Von Giles Stratton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
This 6 disc set is an absolute must have for fans of the Band. Novices can go with the 2 disc version but for true believers this is an impressive artefact compiled by the group's lead guitarist - Robbie Robertson. The title may be misleading to some given that the Band played on after Robertson's departure and produced some very good stuff. It only covers the Capitol years, and like Martin Scorsese's film The Last Waltz is very focused on the input of Robertson...I get the feeling everything every recorded by the group with a J.R.Robertson credit is on here at the expense of some good Richard Manuel songs. The very well compiled liner notes are by the respected Rob Bowman who has been seen by some to be Robertson's pet music journo...so there might be a suggestion of hagiography here.
So a kind of musical history it is from the late 50's when they were the Hawks backing up the amazing, miracle (see 2004 doco "Still Alive & Kickin'") that is Ronnie Hawkins to 1976 and The Last Waltz.
There is an enormous amount of alternate takes, unreleased live tracks and early demos...Robertson had access to the Garth Hudson archives (which must reside at the end of a rainbow somewhere)and the real gold here is the early stuff from around 1960 when the Hawks were blasting white boy blues out like nothing on earth...if you are into the history of rock and roll guitar there is jawdropping stuff here. You learn why Mike Bloomfield confined himself to the piano when Robbie Robertson was around. Some of the walk on parts in this history are fascinating as well...the young guitar god Roy Buchanan on bass, Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick as backing vocalists (Ronnie would've HAD to got his face slapped in that kind of company!)and obviously the unique partnership they forged and reforged and forged again with Bob Dylan is highlighted as well.
Three tracks that have really stood out for me so far are "Further On Up The Road" recorded in 1961...mindblowing for it's time; a sensationally rocking live version of Little Richard's "Slippin' and Slidin'" from the Festival Express tour and an amazing early version of "Jemima Surrender" which features Levon on guitar and drums...simultaneously! There is a real bounty here for fans.
The DVD deserves a mention for the fascinating footage from a Wembley appearance, songs from "The Rock of Ages" live recordings (including the Allen Toussaint-inspired "Don't Do It"...just wonderful) and all the songs they did on SNL in 1976. The packaging looks great...one criticism is because of the layout and font size it isn't particularly easy to read...and the sound quality just sounds great. Get it...but don't be fooled...it's a part history, not the whole story!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Essential for collectors, casual fans should get the good albums 9. Januar 2007
Von Elliot Knapp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
Being a big fan of The Band, I saved up my nickels and dimes and shelled out the money for A Musical History. I got just about what I already expected I'd get--(like one other reviewer put) perhaps a discs worth of early/unreleased material, an excellent DVD with some great live performances, and a large paperback book with a lot of really great pictures. The rest, from (essentially) the entirety of their first three albums to greatest hits of the rest, and the somewhat fairytale narrative in the book (primarily cobbled together from the liner notes of the remastered Band albums), I already had from buying those remasters. Was it worth it? Yeah. But I'm a pretty big fan of The Band, and a completist besides that. After listening to this compilation straight through a few times, I think it's best purchased by big fans and collectors; the extra material is not so revelatory to call it essential, the so-called "hits" are better heard complete, in their original albums (The Band was never a singles group, so why carve up their albums into re-sequenced compilations?), and considering the cost (over $80 new), most casual fans really won't be interested in shelling out that money for a group they're not obsessed with.

I'd say the earlier Hawks material is the most essential, since it's usually not included in any Band compilations. It's so much fun to hear the harder, earlier rock and roll sound they were cranking out--Robbie plays cutting lead on "Who do You Love?" and Richard Manuel howls in a way we've never heard on "Honky Tonk" and "Bacon Fat." There's also some interesting detours when the Hawks left Ronnie Hawkins, working such delightfully immature rockers as "Leave Me Alone," the oldie-sounding "Uh Uh Uh," and the romper "Go Go Liza Jane." This is some really fun stuff--it's not half as creative or accomplished as they got when they were The Band, but helps make the compilation worth the price of admission for me. There's also some great Dylan-era Hawks, like the dark Basement Tapes outtake "Words and Numbers," and the rare single "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?"

The rest of the discs include unreleased tracks, live tracks and alternate versions that are at times very good but don't obviate the original album versions or reveal anything earth-shattering. A few of the unreleased tracks are phenomenal--a cleaned up studio version of the essential live favorite "Don't Do It," the funky cover "Baby Lou," unreleased Rick Danko tracks "Move Me" and "Home Cookin'" (how did "Home Cookin'" NOT make it onto the mediocre Islands--it's stronger than any other original!), and a superior version of the Manuel/Van Morrison duet "4% Pantomime" from Cahoots. A few of the live tracks kill as well--notably the Guthrie composition and Dylan collaboration "I Ain't Got No Home," ripping encore "Slippin' and Slidin'," rarities that really cook--"Look Out Cleveland," "Strawberry Wine," "Smoke Signal," and "Forbidden Fruit."

Unfortunately, a lot of the rest of the unreleased material is pretty Robbie Robertson heavy and not as high-quality--he's shown a remarkable skill at self-aggrandizement, especially in rewriting his historical role in The Band. He tries to make it seem like he contributed a lot to vocals in the group, stacking the deck with unreleased tracks with himself on (weak) vocals. In actuality, he only sang on a couple tracks and his mic was always off in concert. Likewise, the liner notes are so pro-Robbie in their interview proportion and sympathy. Anyone interested in The Band's story should also read Levon Helm's autobiography This Wheel's on Fire: Levon Helm and the Story of the Band as a grain of salt.

The DVD is great too, with some awesome 70's concert footage and all 3 performances from their 1976 Saturday Night Live date. It's great to get some visual accompaniment.

The rest of the standard material from the albums is frustrating. A lot of times it's incomplete, with all but a couple tracks from an album, and sometimes the songs are rearranged from their original order, which is pretty weird when you're used to the superb albums the way they were meant to be. I bought this compilation for the unreleased material--there's nothing that will ever make me stop listening to The Band's albums in their full, original form (even the mediocre ones). The songs sound better in original sequence, and there are some great tracks that this compilation leaves out.

If you're new to The Band, I beg you please to experience their classic albums, Music From Big Pink, The Band, Stage Fright, and Northern Lights - Southern Cross as entire albums, the way they're meant to be heard. If you're on a hunt for everything The Band ever recorded, this is a great place to pick up a bulk of extra material, despite its dubious value.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect and Priceless 1. Oktober 2005
Von bdlove@earthlink.net - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
I've always thought that the Band was the greatest American group of all time, and this surely bears out that opinion. There is a wealth of material here, needless to say, and the book format alone is worth the price. It's just gorgeous.

There is little Americana that this group did not master. I strongly recommend appreciating Danko's wonderful bass tones, which, in the more New Orleans oriented material, sound pretty much like a tuba. He had a great voice, too. Robertson's licks make a compelling case for the supremacy of the Fender guitar in rock music. Helms's voice....it sounds like it was unearthed from a Civil War time capsule, and he can ride the bell of his cymbal as if he were conducting a symphony with a drumstick. Hudson...what can you say about that keyboard? That sax? And, of course, Manuel...he bore the weight of the world. You almost wince at the raw humanity as he hits those impossibly beautiful notes.

The compositions. The lyrics. Incomparable.

Sorry I'm preaching to the choir here. I was speaking on the phone to my dentist's receptionist (pity the poor immigrant) just now as I was listening. She wondered at the sounds in the background. I told her I had just got this great set by the Band. She had no idea. I said, "They backed up Bob Dylan for a time." Her response was, "Never heard of him, either."

We all got some singing to do. Sing it loud, friends. I know you will.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Speechless... 21. Dezember 2005
Von Joel Wexler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
I am without speech. These guys just do that to me. No need to wax eloquent as some others have.

Regarding some of the complaints above (or are they below). If you're so ham-handed you can't get the CD's out of the book without wrecking them, make archival copies (you're allowed to) and just keep the originals safely tucked away).

And when I read stuff like "Also, the large size of this box set means it will have to sit somewhere else other than with my music collection"... it's a book! Put it on your bookshelf! Sheesh.

The alternate takes, although sometimes maybe not as tight as the originals (sometimes, not always) are different looks you haven't seen before - to me it's worth every penny just for that.

There's so much here I've heard differently than before. I've been playing it non-stop since it's arrived. But these guys have been my runaway favorite band for 36 years and will no doubt be forever, so none of this is a surprise to me.
