Music from Big Pink is the debut studio album by The Band. Released in 1968, it employs a distinctive blend of country, rock, folk, classical, R&B, and soul.

As it was, Music from Big Pink came as a surprise. At first blush, the group seemed to affect the sound of a loose jam session, alternating emphasis on different instruments, while the lead and harmony vocals passed back and forth as if the singers were making up their blend on the spot. In retrospect, especially as the lyrics sank in, the arrangements seemed far more considered and crafted to support a group of songs that took family, faith, and rural life as their subjects and proceeded to imbue their values with uncertainty.

Music From Big Pink went from album to legend decades before it reached its 50th anniversary this year, an occasion being celebrated with the release of a variety of splashy commemorative reissues, all featuring a startling new remix by Bob Clearmountain. Such a milestone offers an opportunity for a reassessment, but the striking thing about the Band ’s debut album is how its story hasn’t been changed since its release in the summer of 1968, when it provided a tonic to the overblown psychedelia swamping the late 1960s. Authenticity is always a tricky thing regarding the Band. Music From Big Pink is often called the place where Americana starts even though every member, save drummer Levon Helm, hails from Canada. What’s harder to parse is how Music From Big Pink gets conflated with The Basement Tapes, the collection of homemade recordings Dylan cut with the Band during the summer of 1967.

Music from Big Pink is an event and should be treated as one. Very quietly, for six years, a band has been brewing. They’d pop up once a while behind Ronnie Hawkins or on their own as the Hawks or affectionately called the Crackers, but it was sort of hip to know who they were outside of Toronto. Individually what makes up this album is Robby Robertson whose past discography includes Obviously Five Believers on Blonde on Blonde, the live version of Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues and the much ignored Dylan single, Crawl Out Your Window. Rick Danko, on bass and vocals, is one of the more outgoing people in the band, he can be depend upon to give you a lot of good matured shit whenever you see him; he of the new breed in bass players, the facile freaks like Harvey Brooks, Jim Fielder and Tim Bogert. He is only different from these three in his tasteful understating.

Big Pink, for so many, was this breath of fresh air amid the noise. These songs, which include gussied up versions of such faves from the Basement Tapes sessions as Tears of Rage, This Wheel’s On Fire and the haunting I Shall Be Released as well as beloved Band standards like The Weight and Chest Fever," were truly born from the property on which they were conceived. They were on a retainer, so they had time to write music, said guitarist Jim Weider, who replaced Robertson in The Band when they reunited in the mid-80s.
