"BIG PINK - A pink house seated in the sun of Overlook Mountain in West Saugerties, New York. Big Pink bore this music and these songs along its way. It's the first witness of this album that's been thought and composed right there in its walls."

Music from Big Pink is the debut studio album by the Band. Released in 1968, it employs a distinctive blend of country, rock, folk, classical, R&B, and soul. The album itself was recorded in studios in New York and Los Angeles in 1968, and followed the band's backing of Bob Dylan on his 1966 tour as the Hawks and time spent together in upstate New York recording.

None of the Band's previous work gave much of a clue about how they would sound when they released their first album in July 1968. As it was, Music from Big Pink came as a surprise. At first blush, the group seemed to affect the sound of a loose jam session, alternating emphasis on different instruments, while the lead and harmony vocals passed back and forth as if the singers were making up their blend on the spot. Music from Big Pink is the 1968 debut album by rock band The Band. It features their best-known song, The Weight. With a distinctive blend of country, rock, folk, classical, R&B, and soul, Music From Big Pink is generally considered one of the best albums by the Band, along with their 1969 second album The Band. In 2003, the album was ranked number 34 on Rolling Stone magazine. The music made by the group now simply known as the Band bore little resemblance to the loud, abrasive hard rock the Hawks had played. Its sound was muffled, subdued, almost private, brewed from a broad range of influences but resembling no one style in particular. Today youd call it Americana, although that genre would not exist without Big Pink. Its songs - two of them co-written with Dylan during those b. The Band 1969 If Big Pink was a collection of great songs, its follow-up felt more like a single sprawling tale told in chapters. Four fifths of the Band then known as the Hawks appear on Dylans classic 1966 Royal Albert Hall live album - Helm had split when the booing got out of hand - but Before the Flood, recorded at the end of a triumphant 1974 tour, marks the only official live Dylan release to feature the entire group. Music From Big Pink went from album to legend decades before it reached its 50th anniversary this year, an occasion being celebrated with the release of a variety of splashy commemorative reissues, all featuring a startling new remix by Bob Clearmountain. Authenticity is always a tricky thing regarding the Band. Music From Big Pink is often called the place where Americana starts even though every member, save drummer Levon Helm, hails from Canada. Whats harder to parse is how Music From Big Pink gets conflated with The Basement Tapes, the collection of homemade recordings Dylan cut with the Band during the summer of 1967. Music from Big Pink stands as one of those rare albums that turned the rock world on its axis. On this record, released in 1968 at the height of the psychedelic revolution, the five members of the Band along with producer-sideman John Simon eschewed spacey diversions, opting for an earthier route. Soon enough, wah-wah pedals and tape loops were making way for fiddles and mandolins. The group's most democratic effort Robbie Robertson would soon emerge as the ensemble's mouthpiece, the debut's 11 songs
