The Band – The Last Waltz 40th Anniversary (6LP Set)

Title: The Band – The Last Waltz 40th Anniversary Format: Vinyl Record Label: Warner Cat/Barcode: 081227943561

The Last Waltz was a concert by the Canadian-American rock group The Band, held on American Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was advertised as the Band’s “farewell concert appearance,” and the concert saw the Band joined by more than a dozen special guests, including Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, Neil Diamond, Bobby Charles, The Staple Singers, and Eric Clapton. The musical director for the concert was the Band’s original record producer, John Simon.
The event was filmed by director Martin Scorsese and made into a documentary of the same name, released in 1978. Jonathan Taplin, who was the Band’s tour manager from 1969 to 1972 and later produced Scorsese’s film Mean Streets, suggested that Scorsese would be the ideal director for the project and introduced Robbie Robertson and Scorsese. The Last Waltz is hailed as one of the greatest concert films ever made. 40th Anniversary Edition. The Band’s Historic Finale On Six 180g Vinyl LPs For The First Time! 54 tracks plus 12 Page Booklet.
