Preparing for this beleaguer complete allocation of my analysis of the new best copy boxed set of The Band’s Music From Big Pink, I aboriginal went aback to an beforehand adaptation of the anthology appear in 2002. There, on the abbreviate lived DVD Audio format, the accomplished anthology had been presented remixed into 5.1 and for what it was, it articulate absolutely good. But also, it wasn’t absolutely as abundant of a adumbration as one might’ve hoped. It was acceptable but not apperception blowing. Not surprisingly, it bound became article of a collectors account as it wasn’t broadly accessible (at atomic in my experience… it took me a while to acquisition a copy!).
Taken at face value, the angle of remixing an anthology like “Music From Big Pink” into beleaguer complete may assume on the apparent like an absurd choice. But if you accede the aeon in which it was fabricated and the attributes of the music recorded, it makes a lot of sense. The new 5.1 remix included on a Blu-ray Disc in the air-conditioned best 50th Ceremony copy of Music From Big Pink delivers a faculty of amplitude to the music alone hinted at in the beforehand DVD Audio version. The new 96 kHz, 24-bit 5.1 beleaguer remix opens up all the instruments and brings the music out into the allowance after actuality gimmicky. All things considered, aggregate breathes a lot added which is a big accord (for me at least, as the aboriginal mix, at atomic as presented on the 1968-era vinyl pressings articulate appealing claustrophobic to my ear…. this was a affair I discussed in the aboriginal allotment of this review). The bass is abounding and round, the acoustic and electric guitars are big and you alike apprehend a bit of amplifier accentuation advancing through (especially for the latter).
The songs — which were consistently great, no catechism there — now booty on added majesty, a attendance they accurately deserve. Classics like “This Wheel’s On Fire” and “I Shall Be Released” now complete as ballsy high-fidelity production-wise as the basal songwriting. The hit song “The Weight” sounds absolutely huge… Its all added but additionally lighter.
Following are some snapshot addendum of what to apprehend based on my antecedent listens: “Chest Fever” presents the amount bandage up advanced and centermost (basically stereo) and in the rear you’ll apprehend agency reflections, articulate harmonies and alike some able piano or agency sounds. “This Wheel’s On Fire” is conceivably the best consciousness-expanding of the mixes, with blue keyboard percolating aback to advanced — sometimes left, sometimes appropriate — and the guitars advancing from the rear. “To Kingdom Come” appearance air-conditioned guitar swells and piano in rear (and is conspicuously added impactful than on the DVD Audio version, btw). “Caledonia Mission” finds acoustic guitars and piano in the rear channels — candied amplifier tones axiomatic here.
“The Weight” is accurate in beleaguer complete with an acoustic apparatus (I anticipate Mandolin, but I may be wrong) aperture things up in the appropriate advanced approach followed by absolutely huge Tom Tom boom hits to the centermost left. The accent area is asleep centermost and agency swells appear acclaim from the rear. This is absolutely detached at times and appreciably apple-pie sounding. On the DVD Audio disc, the mix is beneath absolute and at times hissy. “I Shall Be Released” has an air of breeding about it, with the piano aperture from the rears in a added textured manner; this music sounds adulate on the DVD Audio version.
And so it goes on the new Blu-ray Disc beleaguer complete remix included with the 50th ceremony boxed set of The Band’s Music From Big Pink,
But.. wait.. there’s more!
The Benefit Tracks
On both the aerial resolution Blu-ray Disc and the CD you get to apprehend aloof six benefit tracks, but they are all absolutely admirable (and its six added than we got on the DVD Audio Disc, which had absolutely aught benefit tracks!). The three outtakes which didn’t accomplish the final cut for the aboriginal LP are fun! “Long Distance Operator” and “Key To The Highway” are chic rockers. “Yazoo Street” is my admired as it pre-echoes the complete that Little Feat able in the early-mid-1970s on songs like “Dixie Chicken,” infusing a New Orleans drag with a Bo Diddley bedrock sensibility. A absolutely fun tune, I can additionally apprehend why it was larboard off the anthology as it doesn’t absolutely fit in with the added Appalachian-flavored proto-roots Americana feel of the blow of the album.
There are alternating takes of “Tears of Rage” and “Lonesome Suzie” included but conceivably the best absolute moment comes is the the final, base ahead unreleased mix of “I Shall Be Released” presenting aloof the vocals. Absolutely haunting.
Just One Added Thing…
Also included in the set is a reproduction of the aboriginal distinct absolution by The Band: “The Weight” backed with “I Shall Be Released.” Curiously, at the time of its aboriginal affair they didn’t alike apperceive the name of this accumulation — annihilation had been absitively — so if you attending at the characterization it doesn’t absolutely say “The Band” on it, but instead lists the names of the accumulation members! For a new alien group, this was appealing arresting but then, they weren’t absolutely “unknown” in the archetypal faculty — they had been Bob Dylan’s aback up bandage during an aboriginal career pinnacle. Also, Dylan’s attendance on the anthology was abundant with three songs accounting or co-written — and awning art corrective — by him). So this is a appealing accurate amusement of that distinct appropriate bottomward to the aeon orange-yellow agitate Capitol Records characterization and the blazon of alien sleeve the distinct acceptable came in at the stores.
Of advance this adaptation is abundant added air-conditioned deluxe, in befitting with the set artful so the vinyl is blubbery and asleep quiet and the alien sleeve thicker agenda (the aboriginal was acceptable a cardboard sleeve). But of advance you’ll appetite to apperceive that it sounds as abundant as it looks, featuring the new 2018 Stereo mixes of the songs. It sounds air-conditioned punchy, charge say; I accept that allotment of that fizz may aloof be my activity for seven-inch singles! I didn’t compare-contrast, but I doubtable the 12-inch vinyl adaptation of the songs would complete bigger technically.
So, there you accept it. The 50th ceremony boxed set of The Band’s Music From Big Pink is a accomplished accolade to a archetypal album, one which respects the aboriginal adaptation while afterlight the allegiance for approaching ancestors to ascertain and acknowledge in all its glory.
