...5 CD's & 1 DVD--the quintessential BAND release---has it all--pre BAND HAWKS..Ronnie Hawkins HAWKS...early efforts...all the albums(more or less)..alternate & special cuts(check out "Twilight" with Robbie on piano & singing)...live stuff... wonderful stuff with his BOBNESS......great book it comes in with great musical stories(no personal gossip or crap---pure music)...great vibe---reminds me of our many years in Woodstock(the town,not the concert!!)...i'm sure this has been discussed,but no crime in the repeat of holy music....peace

this is music with a smile,a wealth of happy memories,& a righteousness unique to the time & to the music of the time...as i believe Levon said(could be Robbie--memory problem!!)..."WE WERE REBELLING AGAINST THE REBELLION"

BUMP--no one else own this--would love to hear opinions...it's an unusual boxset..Robbie,Levon & Garth all contributed to the musical selections---this is no best of..an epic--got it over a year ago & never is it far from me...the pictures--particularly in town....wow

Last January I got this. Since then the Band has skyrocketed to my favorite band outside of the Allman Brothers/bands that aren't built on long insturmentals. Basically The Band is absolutely unbelievable and this box set is an excellent example of this. It is truly invaluable...Everyone should buy it despite being kind of expensive. There is not a single song I skip over. On the Ipod its perfect for shuffle...

If all they ever did was their first two albums, it would be an incredible legacy (would be awesome to see those rereleased on one CD) -- their first box set, Across The Great Divide, was & is an excellent overview of their career as well -- what a wonderful, unique amazing band they were -- unlike anyone else, before or since -- have heard tons of glowing comments like these about this one too, absolutely no surprise.

Hi Dad,
Even though it was expensive ( gotta invest in things you love,right? ), I couldn't wait to get my hands on this box set.
Most of the music we ( us--Band fans ) already have ; but disc 1 with The Hawks and the DVD of live performancs make it a precious buy. Plus, all the beautiful photographs ( oh,my ! ).

Love Rick's Home Cookin'. Love Rick, love the guys.
It's good medicine.

Hi Effie, I love the Band. A very close second to the ABB.
I hadn't heard about this box set. I will definitely have to have it,
especially with Ronnie Hawkins. Thanks for posting this info.
