As I posted earlier, Capitol/UME will release a The four-CD, one-DVD set of The Band from the last week of 1971 and is entitled ‘Live at the Academy of Music 1971′ (Sept. 17)
During the four live shows at New York’s Academy Of Music, guests with them like Allen Toussaint and Bob Dylan were invited to sit in.
Below is a perviously unheard soundboard mix of “Life Is A Carnival” from the set. Live At The Academy Of Music comes packaged with a 48-page hardbound book featuring previously unseen photos, a reproduction of Rolling Stone’s Rock Of Ages review, an essay by Robbie Robertson, and notes of appreciation from both Mumford & Sons and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. preorder Live at the Academy Of Music 1971 [4CD/1DVD]
