(The Brown Album)

USA - lime green CAPITOL - STAO 132

Clean vinyl in this old vintage pressing of the second BAND LP recorded in 1969, on the collected lime green Capitol label...which were printed only some 18 months and getting hard to find some 38 years later... Darlings of FM underground radio rock and the emerging rural hippie enthusiasts, the Band once again hit it big with their classic "Up On Crippled Creek", which is just one of the excellent tunes within this classic album....

Music from Big Pink had been a fine, even superior debut; The Band was their masterpiece. Robbie Robertson's songwriting had grown by leaps and bounds. As players, all five musicians had reached a completely new level of ensemble cohesion. The sum was very much greater than the parts, and the parts were as good as any that existed. The album's single, "Up on Cripple Creek," became the Band's first and only Top 30 release. It was one of several songs on the album that had an "old-timey" feel. Other highlights on this masterpiece include "Rag Mama Rag," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," and "King Harvest." Popularly known as the "Brown Album," the four-parts Canadian, one-part Arkansan quintet's sophomore effort boasts more soon-to-be-staples than any other Band studio recording, standing out with a dozen uniformly memorable tracks. Lesser-known group originals such as the achingly lovely "Whispering Pines" and the cryptic "Unfaithful Servant," play crucial roles in giving this 1969 classic its unique flavor. Given the high standard established by The Band and its similar 1968 predecessor, Music from Big Pink , it's not surprising the Band peaked early as a recording group.
