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.

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.

The Band’s first effort would be entitled Music From Big Pink. For those who do not know, Big Pink was the house The Band lived in within New York. The group rehearse in the house, and write many of their well known songs inside of the basement. The album holds numerous amounts of Band classics. Not only fabulous playing is inside, but some of their greatest and most emotional lyrics also. The lyrics show signs of each members personalities, and even have almost a theme.

Notes

Orange Capitol Labels

"BIG PINK - A pink house seated in the sun of Overlook Mountain in West Saugerties, New York. Big Pink bore this music and these songs along its way. It's the first witness of this album that's been thought and composed right there in its walls."
