The Canadian rock group, The Band (Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel), was hired by Bob Dylan as his U.S. tour band in 1965 and again for his world tour in 1966. From there, they moved with Dylan to New York and recorded the now famous Basement Tapes, which became the basis of their 1968 debut album as The Band, Music from Big Pink. The album had a wide influence on a number of musicians, and was ranked at #34 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list in 2003.
A copy of the Music from Big Pink LP is featured in this collection, hand-signed by the members of The Band.
