The Band - Rock Of Ages (1972)

The Band were an influential and highly acclaimed rock band formed in the 1960s.

Rock Of Ages was the first live album from The Band, recorded late December 1971 in New York City and released the next year. They recruited New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint (who had arranged the horns on their recent single "Life Is A Carnival") to organise for them a five-man horn section, which added a fantastic new dimension to their sound for these concerts. A double album was culled from the performances, which featured material from across their four studio albums. It also included a new song, "Get Up Jake", and two fantastic covers which bookended the set - Marvin Gaye's "Baby Don't You Do It" and Chuck Willis' "(I Don't Want To Hang Up) My Rock And Roll Shoes". "Don't Do It" was released as a single, and got to #34 on the pop charts. The album itself was a great success, showing the wide scope of the group's sound at their musical best. It got to #6 on the album charts.

Thanks so much for posting this record. I have the album (LP) and some others, but no CDs or digital and was dying to hear this. One of the few bands from that era that I still adore.
