For this edition of Rediscovering Our Record Collections, I am examining one of my favorite albums of all time, a classic rock and Americana milestone.
An almost all-Canadian ensemble, The Band emerged in the late 1960s with a blend of older and newer sounds associated with the American South and gained a wide audience in the process. Their second, self-titled album is often considered their best work, and as of June, 2013, the statistically compiled website Acclaimed Music ranked it as #40 on their list of the most acclaimed album of all time.
