The sprawling and beautiful 2005 box set A MUSICAL HISTORY featured five CDs as well as video footage of the Band, and remains the definitive documentation of the beloved folk/rock/country ensemble. This one-disc heavily truncated version of the box set functions as a perfectly acceptable retrospective in its own right, with 19 chronologically ordered tracks (including songs by the proto-Band outfit the Hawks, and a few sung by Bob Dylan) and five video clips dating between 1970 and 1974. All the hits are here, as well some live tracks and song sketches.
