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.
Bob Dylan is pictured here onstage with The Band, by photographer James Fortune. This limited edition photo is hand-signed by Fortune and numbered 33/275.
James Fortune began his photographic career in the late 1960s while still in college in Los Angeles. He photographed and cataloged over 15,000 images of rock icons and others through 1980.
