The Last Waltz
Time hasn’t diminished The Band’s uniqueness or mythic mystery, as this luxurious four-CD boxed set documenting The Last Waltz, the group’s final concert at San Francisco’s Winterland in 1976 demonstrates. Remastered, and featuring a plethora of bonus material not available on the 1978 soundtrack album to the Martin Scorsese film of the same name, it might be described as an embarrassment of riches. A-list guests like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell add to the feeling that The Band went out on a high note. The whole thing leaves us tickled pink, big time.
