The Band - The Last Waltz mp3 album

The Last Waltz is the second live album by the Band, released on Warner Bros. Records in 1978, catalogue 3WS 3146. It is the soundtrack to the 1978 film of the same name, and the final album by the original configuration of the Band. It peaked at on the Billboard 200. The triple album documents the Band's "farewell" concert which took place at Bill Graham's Winterland Ballroom on Thanksgiving Day 1976

The Last Waltz is the soundtrack to the 1978 film The Last Waltz documenting the "farewell" concert of the classic line-up of Canadian-American rock group The Band which took place at Bill Graham's Winterland Ballroom on Thanksgiving Day 1976. The concert saw The Band joined by more than a dozen special guests, including Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood and Neil Young.

But as an album, The Last Waltz soundtrack had to compete with the Band's earlier live album, Rock of Ages, with which it bears a certain superficial resemblance - both found the group trying to create something grander than the standard-issue live double, and both featured the group beefed up by additional musicians

The box set The Last Waltz is a 2002 four-disc re-release of the 1978 album The Last Waltz documenting the concert The Last Waltz, the last concert by the Band with its classic line up. A full forty tracks are taken from the show in addition to rehearsal outtakes. Twenty-four tracks are previously unreleased

The Last Waltz doesn’t just document The Band’s final performance-it’s a living biography of the roots-rock legends. Beyond the eeling romps through classics like Up On Cripple Creek, it corrals an all-star cast of mentors, including blues great Muddy Waters (on a gloriously swampy Mannish Boy ) and fellow ’60s-Toronto traveler Neil Young (on a heavenly Helpless ). A rip-roaring Baby Let Me Follow You Down reaffirms how The Band always brought the freewheeling best out of former boss Bob Dylan. The Last Waltz The Band.
