Produktbeschreibungen
Music from Big Pink gehört zu den wenigen Alben, die die Rockwelt ins Rotieren brachte. Auf dieser Platte, die 1968 auf dem Höhepunkt der psychedelischen Revolution erschien, vermieden die fünf Mitglieder von The Band (gemeinsam mit dem Produzenten John Simon) verschlungene Umwege und entschieden sich für einen Weg, der eher "down to earth" war. Wah-Wah Pedale und Tonband-Loops sollten wieder Geigen und Mandolinen Platz machen. Es ist die demokratischste Leistung der Gruppe (Robbie Robertson sollte bald zum Sprecher des Ensembles avancieren), denn die elf Songs dieses Debüts kamen von Robertson, dem Bassisten Rick Danko und dem Pianisten Richard Manuel, der zwei Songs beisteuert und an dem schmerzlichen Auftakt "Tears of Rage" mit Bob Dylan beteiligt war. Manuels Rolle sollte sich von diesem Punkt an reduzieren, und die ausgleichende Wirkung, die er in das Quintett einbrachte, wurde schon bald schmerzlich vermisst. Viele werden argumentieren, dass das Album The Band, das auf Music from Big Pink folgte, ihren Erfolg krönte. In Wahrheit ist jedoch Music from Big Pink das reinste Konzentrat der Band und deren allerbeste Aufnahme. Diese digital bearbeitete Neuauflage wurde großzügig erweitert und umfasst neun Tracks als Zugabe mit einer Rarität von Robertson als Highlight ("Ferdinand the Imposter") und einer Version von "If I Lose" der Stanley Brothers. --Steven Stolder

Review by William Ruhlmann
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. In retrospect, especially as the lyrics sank in, the arrangements seemed far more considered and crafted to support a group of songs that took family, faith, and rural life as their subjects and proceeded to imbue their values with uncertainty. Some songs took on the theme of declining institutions less clearly than others, but the points were made musically as much as lyrically. Tenor Richard Manuel's haunting, lonely voice gave the album much of its frightening aspect, while Rick Danko's and Levon Helm's rough-hewn styles reinforced the songs' rustic fervor. The dominant instrument was Garth Hudson's often icy and majestic organ, while Robbie Robertson's unusual guitar work further destabilized the sound. The result was an album that reflected the turmoil of the late '60s in a way that emphasized the tragedy inherent in the conflicts. Music from Big Pink came off as a shockingly divergent musical statement only a year after the ornate productions of Sgt. Pepper, and initially attracted attention because of the three songs Bob Dylan had either written or co-written. However, as soon as "The Weight" became a minor singles chart entry, the album and the group made their own impact, influencing a movement toward roots styles and country elements in rock. Over time, Music from Big Pink came to be regarded as a watershed work in the history of rock, one that introduced new tones and approaches to the constantly evolving genre.
