Music From The Big Pink review

The Bands Music From the Big Pink, their first release, is a masterpiece.  A terrific disc that includes some of their best originals, "The Weight," "Chest Fever," and "To Kingdom Come."  Not to be overlooked are two Bob Dylan tracks from the time they performed together, "I Shall Be Released" and "Tears of Rage." The albums name came from the color of the house in upstate New York where they stayed in and wrote the songs for this album, The Basement Tapes, and more.  The reissued version from 2000 includes nine bonus tracks of outtakes and alternative takes. by Barry Small
