Call it rock, Americana, folk, country, pop or old weird America. It doesn't matter. The Band stands alone in its contributions to modern music, its lineup featuring one of the most formidable rosters of musicians ever assembled. Mobile Fidelity continues its commitment to the group's timeless catalog with hybrid SACD releases of 1972's phenomenal live album Rock Of Ages and 1975's tremendous studio swan song, Northern Lights-Southern Cross. Each are remastered from the original master tapes and blow away any previous version.
The Band's Northern Lights-Southern Cross is, in nearly every respect, the group's studio swan song. The group's fifth album is also one of its finest works, a finely textured collection that at the time of its 1975 release marked the quintet's first album of new material in four years. And what songs they are. Anchored by the standards "Acadian Driftwood," "Ophelia" and 'It Makes No Difference," the set finds the collective in peak form.
