Robbie Robertson is the solo debut album by Canadian rock musician Robbie Robertson, released in 1987. Though Robertson has been a professional musician since the late 1950s, notably a founder of and primary songwriter for The Band, this was his first proper solo album. Robbie Robertson won the Juno Award for "Album of the Year", and producers Daniel Lanois and Robertson won the "Producer of the Year" Juno award, both in 1989 (there were no Juno Awards in 1988).

As a result, Robbie Robertson is an album that represents both a clear break from his past, and an ambitious attempt to take his fascination with American culture and music in a new and contemporary direction. It's highly ambitious stuff, and the album's ambitions sometimes prove to be its Achilles' heel.

Robbie Robertson is the solo debut album by Robbie Robertson, released in 1987. It won the Juno Award for "Album of the Year", and producers Daniel Lanois and Robertson won the "Producer of the Year" Juno award, both in 1989 (there were no Juno Awards in 1988). The album includes contributions from the members of U2 and Peter Gabriel, both of whom were also working with Lanois at the time. Preliminary discussions and preproduction for Robertson's first solo album began in autumn 1984. The first producer Robertson considered for production of the album was fellow Canadian Daniel Lanois.

Robbie Robertson took his time releasing his first solo album, waiting almost a decade after the Band's Last Waltz came out. Eventually the sessions grew to include multiple famous colleagues – some old friends, some new – but Robbie Robertson never failed to live up to its name: This was the most personal thing he'd ever done. In an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, Robertson admits that his songwriting is "an evolving process, and most of the time you don't know how deep you're going until you get there.

Robbie Robertson's first solo album sounds remarkably different from his previous work with The Band, due to his teaming up with producer Daniel Lanois (whose ethereal textures bring out a new level of emotion in his music) and members of Peter Gabriel's backing band. Robertson wasn't considered much of a singer during his tenure with The Band, but here he makes up for lost time with a set that's simply majestic. Fallen Angel," with Gabriel, pays tribute to the late Band pianist Richard Manuel, with Band organist Garth Hudson adding keyboard flourishes
