Music; Rock & Pop music
A celebration of one of the most revered groups in rock history, on the 50th anniversary of their debut album and the 40th anniversary of The Last Waltz, the legendary film of their final concert.

Acclaimed author and music journalists Harvey Kubernik and his brother Kenneth pay tribute to The Band on two special anniversaries: the debut of their first album, Music from Big Pink, 50 years ago, and the release of Martin Scorsese's film The Last Waltz, hailed as the greatest concert movie ever made, 40 years ago. The Story of The Band covers everything from their collaborations with Bob Dylan through that farewell show, which took place on Thanksgiving 1976. It features Harvey's rare and previously unpublished interviews with Robbie Robertson and Rick Danko of The Band and those who knew them - including Mike Stoller, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Ronnie Hawkins, Jerry Garcia, and Bill Graham - as well as newly discovered memorabilia and rare and never-before-seen photographs from the finest rock photographers of the era. Al Kooper, Don Was, Graham Nash, Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, and Andrew Loog Oldham are among the voices honouring The Band in the book.
