Description by

The story of the Band and their classic eponymously titled 1969 album is told here in vivid words, pictures, and music. Rock legends Eric Clapton and George Harrison, lyricist Bernie Taupin, and musician-producer Don Was pay tribute to the Band and explain why this album is at the top of their classic album lists. Band members Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Robbie Robertson, and Garth Hudson, along with the album's coproducer, John Simon, give unique insight as to how the album came to be recorded in the former residence of Sammy Davis Jr. in the Hollywood Hills and spawned such timeless recordings as "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," "Rag Mama Rag," and "Up on Cripple Creek."

Product Description:

CLASSIC ALBUMS takes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Band's self-titled 1969 album, which includes some of the group's most influential songs such as "The Weight" and "Up On Cripple Creek." Part of a series of documentaries broadcast on VH-1 and PBS, the film features interviews with Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, and producer John Simon. Conversations about musical techniques and styles are offset by performances with luminous guests such as Eric Clapton, George Harrison, and Don Was. Recording in a studio outside of Hollywood Hills, Robertson performs "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" on solo piano, Hudson does multiple instrumental keyboard solos, and Danko offers a solo rendition of "When You Awake."
