The Band - 1971/12/28-31 - Academy of Outtakes


The Band - Academy of Outtakes
December 28-31, 1971 - Academy of Music - New York, NY

Excellent SBD recording (Wild Wolf Label)
mp3 @ 320 kbps
Artwork included

Just found this great boot of The Band of shows from December 1971 & a rehearsal session as well. Great Stuff. Reminded me of how much I like these guys. Note: Big thanks to Strawdog at Dinostunz for this one! Will post some more from The Band soon.

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.
