We’re gettin’ The Band back together, dude

Via Stereogum, news of a forthcoming tribute album to The Band called Endless Highway (Jan 2007) that I’ve been streaming all morning over at the 429 Records site, enjoying tunes like:

[Stream]
Ophelia – ALO
Look Out Cleveland – Jackie Greene
Rocking Chair – Death Cab For Cutie
Whispering Pines – Jakob Dylan
Life Is A Carnival – Trevor Hall

And you’ll get a version of this one with MMJ (but the album version ain’t got no Vedder)

It Makes No Difference – My Morning Jacket with Ed Vedder
(live in Pistoia, Italy – 9/20/06)

  • I just worked on stuff for a 2 disc “America” greatest hits/new album collection (horse with no name, lonely people, etc)

    I mention it because the entire second disc is new songs collaborating with Ryan Adams, Toad the wett sproket, lots of great alt rockers!!!! I am just as suprised as you… but I’ll be picking it up

  • No one else on that album can hold a candle to Joe Henry.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
