The Band Compiled in Multi-Disc Boxed Set

The Band, whose song catalog includes classics such as “The Weight” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” will be highlighted in a multi-disc boxed set to be released Tuesday (Sept. 27) by Capitol/EMI. The Band: A Musical History includes five CDs, one DVD and a 108-page hardcover book documenting the group’s entire recording career from 1963 to 1976. Among the set’s 111 audio and video tracks are 37 previously unreleased recordings and film clips. The Band’s guitarist and primary songwriter, Robbie Robertson, served as executive producer of the project. On Oct. 6, Robertson will participate in a question and answer session at the Experience Music Project in Seattle.
