One For The Old Timers – The Band on Today’s Vinyl Vault
Bob Dylan's early back up band became known as "The Band", both around inner circles and professionally. Their debut album, without Dylan (although he wrote 3 of the songs and illustrated the album's cover), was released in 1968 under the name Music From Big Pink; due to the fact they recorded it in a large house with pink siding, that the guys were renting at the time. It became a highly inspirational album for many artists and was The Band's peak. We're getting into it for a rare spin on today's vault, 5:20pm. Out of town? Listen live on-line.
