Excellent SBD recording (Wild Wolf Label)

2-CD Band bootleg issued in 2000 (Wild Wolf Label), with tracks from 1971 live recordings and rehearsal tapes. All previously unreleased/ uncirculated.

Incredible 33-track, superb quality from master reel sources. A fab Wild Wolf set with 25 previously unreleased/uncirculating performances from the NY City, Academy of Music, December 28-31, 1971/72 gigs that spawned “Rock of Ages” – but with no overlap from that official release.

Plus a terrific 8-song rehearsal from UltraSonic Studios, Long Island, in Dec 1971, also uncirculating & in primo sound. An absolute knockout 155+ minutes and an instant Hall-of-Famer.

*= We requested to Levon that he do a song for my brother-in-law and his wife who were there with us celebrating the Reunion…they were recently married just before and this is the song Levon choose to play for them.

Notes:
#10,17 cut at very end of tracks.
#6,7,10,12,13,16,18,19, and 20 were not on “any” of the Reunion releases.
This show was a great night…a REAL party finally The Band reunited for the 1st time since The Last Waltz. I can still taste that Thanksgiving Feast!!!
In a small 400 cap. Beer Bar at the time.
Everybody was one big family there a reunion of we fans as well.
Lot’s of Deadheads…We Are Everywhere!!
This night the boys were mingling with the fans in the house before the show so I got to say Hi to them.
