The Band – I Shall be Released (Concert footage from 1970 )

We’ve already written about Dylan’s classic I Shall be Released.

Here, the Band – the first act to officially release a version of this wonderful song – perform their version in some great concert footage from 1970.

The Band recorded “I Shall Be Released” on their debut album, Music from Big Pink (1968), with Richard Manuel singing lead vocals, and Rick Danko and Levon Helm harmonizing in the chorus.

With a rough sound, seemingly chaotic arrangements, and a distinctive blend of country, rock, folk, classical, R&B, and soul, Music From Big Pink is generally considered one of the best albums by the Band. It would turn out to be a very influential album on generations of musicians.
