    You couldn’t be more wrong about Music From Big Pink and David Live.

    From “Tears Of Rage” to “I Shall Be Released,” The Band’s album is a non-stop classic of American roots music. There’s not a bad song in the bunch. Admittedly, it can take repeated listenings to fully appreciate the blend of elements that makes them timeless. The bonus tracks are a wonderful collection of alternate takes of the songs that made Dylan’s The Basement Tapes unforgettable.

    Conversely, David Live remains the self-indulgent, rather muddled head trip it’s always been. Bowie at the Beeb and Stage do a far superior job of capturing the magic of a David Bowie concert.

    Only if you like adenoidal moronic vocals could Big Pink be called classic. Thanks for exposing this nightmare. “Repeated listenings” would be torture.
