Overview

This 2001 reissue of the Band's classic live set -- recorded on New Year's Eve, 1971, at New York's Academy of Music -- is a boon to fans, as it includes a ten-song bonus disc featuring a guest appearance by Bob Dylan, who joined the Band for encores of "Down in the Flood," "When I Paint My Masterpiece," "Don't Ya Tell Henry," and "Like a Rolling Stone." The other six tracks on the disc were recorded by the Band during their four-night stand at the Academy of Music but didn't make the final cut for the original Rock of Ages track list. Notable among these is the hit "Up on Cripple Creek," "I Shall Be Released," "Rockin' Chair," and "Time to Kill."

THe original 2 LP set was my introduction to the Band. THis set was one of my first CD purchases when I began changing formats. The original set, contained on disc 1, is some of the best live 70s rock ever recorded. This is the group that, more than any other, is the ancestor of the roots rock genre. Disc 2 seems to lack the spark of the original recording. Dylan's four songs are erratic. The best one is Down in the Flood. Like a Rolling Stone sounds as if Bob is having trouble focusing. To sum this all up, 5 stars for the original, 3 stars for the bonus material, but don't let that stop you from buying a great album by a great, groundbreaking band.
