The Band was issued today in 1969

The album simply named The Band was issued on this date in 1969. It’s my second favorite rock album (after Exile on Main Street). In a period of psychedelic excess, The Band’s focus on history and blending styles really stood out. So did their three great vocalists.

There’s a deluxe box set

Elliott Landy took the cover picture. His photos of The Band are here.
