The Band / 50th anniversary reissue

Super deluxe box • 5.1 surround mix • New stereo mix • Previously unreleased bonus tracks • 2LP vinyl • 2CD deluxe

Universal Music will reissue The Band‘s self-titled second album for its 50th anniversary. Three physical editions are on offer, including a six-disc super deluxe box set with a 5.1 surround mix.

The super deluxe edition of the 1969 album consists of two CDs, a blu-ray audio, a 2LP vinyl set and a bonus seven-inch single. Like with last year’s Music From Big Pink reissue, Bob Clearmountain has created a new stereo mix of The Band album and this features on the box is various places including the first CD and the 2LP vinyl.

The first disc also features six previously unreleased bonus tracks, while the seven studio bonus tracks previously issued in 2000 are also included on the second CD after a Live at Woodstock performance.

The blu-ray audio includes a 5.1 surround sound mix and a hi-res stereo mix of the album (the latter is presumably the new stereo mix). In addition the six bonus tracks from the first CD are also included and mixed to 5.1.

The box concludes with a 2LP black vinyl pressing of The Band, along with a seven-inch single that features ‘Rag Mama Rag’ b/w ‘The Unfaithful Servant’.

A 2LP black vinyl edition of the new stereo mix will also be available, along with a 2CD deluxe that is effectively discs one and two from the big box.

This set has been overseen by Robbie Robertson and will be released on 15 November 2019.
