Band - Band (2nd) + (CD) 
EMI 0724352538928 
 
Genre: Rock 
Recorded: 1969 
Released: 2000 
 
Remastered 19 Tracks: Across the Great Divide, Rag Mama Rag, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, When You Awake, Up on Cripple Creek, Whispering Pines, Jemima Surrender, Rockin' Chair, Look Out Cleveland, Jawbone, The Unfaithful Servant, King Harvest (Has Surely Come), ... + 7 Bonustracks; The Band's first album, Music From Big Pink, seemed to come out of nowhere, with its ramshackle musical blend and songs of rural tragedy. The Band, the group's second album, was a more deliberate and even more accomplished effort, partially because the players had become a more cohesive unit and partially because guitarist Robbie Robertson had taken over the songwriting, writing or co-writing all 12 songs. Though a Canadian, Robertson focused on a series of American archetypes from the union worker in ""King Harvest (Has Surely Come)"" and the retired sailor in ""Rockin' Chair"" to, most famously, the Confederate Civil War observer Virgil Cane in ""The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."" The album effectively mixed the kind of mournful songs that had dominated Music From Big Pink, here including ""Whispering Pines"" and ""When You Awake"" (both co-written by Richard Manuel), with rollicking uptempo numbers like ""Rag Mama Rag"" and ""Up on Cripple Creek"" (both sung by Levon Helm and released as singles, with ""Up on Cripple Creek"" making the Top 40). As had been true of the first album, it was the Band's sound that stood out the most, from Helm's (and occasionally Manuel's) propulsive drumming to Robertson's distinctive guitar fills and the endlessly inventive keyboard textures of Garth Hudson, all topped by the rough, expressive singing of Manuel, Helm, and Rick Danko that mixed leads with harmonies. The arrangements were simultaneously loose and assured, giving the songs a timeless appeal, while the lyrics continued to paint portraits of 19th century rural life (especially Southern life, as references to Tennessee and Virginia made clear), its sometimes less savory aspects treated with warmth and humor. The 2000 CD reissue featured seven bonus tracks. ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide
