The Last Waltz / 40th Anniversary sets

lastwaltz40

The Band‘s 1976 Thanksgiving Day concert in Winterland Theatre, San Francisco – where they were joined by an all-star group of musicians including Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, and Neil Young –  was immortalised by director Martin Scorsese’s concert film The Last Waltz. Rhino will release FOUR special 40th anniversary editions in November, including a set that pairs the audio and video for the first time.

A 40th anniversary two-CD edition features remastered audio, while a five disc version which comprises 4CD+blu-ray, contains the full 54-track version (with rehearsals etc.) and the film on blu-ray. This looks to be presented smart ‘casebound book’ packaging (see image below). The blu-ray has the audio in 5.1.

There will also be a 6-LP vinyl set which contains the full four-CD audio. I should point out that the UK price-tag of £60 (at the time of writing) is great value for this massive vinyl set, and by far the cheapest.

But, wait for it…. there is also a lavish “40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition“, which is limited to 2,500 copies worldwide. This includes a replica of Scorsese’s original shooting script. Once the film was complete, Scorsese had two copies of the script bound in a red leather book; one copy for himself and the other a gift to Robbie Robertson, which now resides at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Although this edition is $260 you only get ‘faux’ leather for the 260-page book. With this version you get the four CDs, the blu-ray and a second blu-ray with a Martin Scorsese and Robbie Robertson interview, photo gallery and 5.1 mix of the original album. Not sure these will end up on Amazon and the like, but you can purchase here.

Collector’s Edition. Feel the quality of faux-leather.

These are all being issued on 11 November 2016 (the month from hell for the physical music fans’ wallet) except the collector’s edition which is due on 9 December.
