They were just on Saturday Night Live, and sounded aweful! John Paul Jones is so much above collaborating with clowns like these. Is there content on this album that I must be missing?

"Music From Big Pink", which I saw at a reasonable price in our local second-hand book shop. They also had an Australian pressing of "Pillow" for a ridiculous $75. No-one seems to realise that cheapo Australian editions of American records (or comics for that matter) are worth much less that the originals.

I love Music from Big Pink. The Band is fantastic. :D Notice their signature is for them all to come in a different times with voice instead of singing in unison.

The Band is just fantastic, that is really what I think - but by the way, which one's Pink?

Not sure of the question :? But Big Pink was the nickname for the house Bob Dylan was living in in New York and The Band occupied it as Dylan's back up band, until they went out on their own.

Sooo, we have an album "Music from Big Pink" - by "The Band"

Pretty sure they are all males :P Sorrey, JR.

Anyway, it's a good record. I thought it might be a bit boring, but there's some clever sounds on it. A huge influence on British groups, too.

Eric Clapton had another musical invention with Cream. He would turn up his guitar mike and duel with the drum solo. This had never been done before. (referring to the band's voice at different times as opposed to unison).

Nothing to do with the Band, but your thoughts reminded me of a line from Pink Floyd's "Have a Cigar". I do know and love The Band, and feel their signature style was to accompany "tough times" lyrics with jubilant instrumentals. Some of the best organ work ever recorded!

I thought I was the only one who noticed that! Nice to find some other Floyd fans... that'ss off of Wish You Were Here, my favorite album of theirs... not to get us sidetracked. May the next poster continue on where the topic was originally going?

I agree... they were definitely fantastic. And they had one of rock's very few singer-drummers. That's gotta take some very serious coordination...

Robert Wyatt was one of those; a great singer and a great drummer, all at the same time.

Don't know. Never got into Pink Floyd. Weren't they for that Pink generation?

A recent purchase of mine is the Sundazed vinyl re-issue of "Mr Fantasy" aka "Heaven is in Your Mind" by Traffic. This one really is one of my favorites and getting a nice clean copy to listen to really is heaven in my mind.

Some other particular favorites I picked up on CD are "Truth" by the Jeff Beck Group and "Spirit" by Spirit. You can see the time-frame I am partial to. Again, clean copies of old favorites are doing the trick here.

Speaking of the Kinks, I'm a big fan of "Preservation" and "Muswell Hillbillies", but any of their stuff is great. Ray's autobiography "X-Ray" is terrific. I'm planning to pick up the new chorale version of Kinks classics Ray put out.
