THE LAST WALTZ


“Unprecedented in scope and unrivaled in spirit, ‘The Last Waltz’ transcends both the group it honors and every A-list star that appears. Indeed, The Band's farewell event captures the zeitgeist of a creative period like none other and raises a glass to the communal ethos and artistic electricity that emerged from a time during which foreign wars, political assassinations, and equality inspired an exceptional outburst of originality and innovation. Indeed, as The Band's going-away party, ‘The Last Waltz’ is one of the few albums in any genre where each instrumentalist plays as if every note will be their last. In this case, such circumstances were believed to be true.”

“From the rustic Southern charm of the invigorating opener "Up on Cripple Creek" through a joyous circus-themed run through "Ophelia" to a stellar version of "The Weight" filled with palatable gravitas, The Band gives its all and more, cementing once and for all its permanent mark in the annals of rock's greatest artists.” ‘The Last Waltz’ on SACD from MoFi! buff.ly/2p4hcL1
