Liner Note Author: Greil Marcus.
Long before they became The Band, these four Canadians and one southern rebel rocked the rooftops off Canada as The Hawks, Ronnie Hawkins's fierce back-up band. Their non-stop performing took them through nearly every bar in the region, and the group developed into a tightly wound rock unit. It is therefore interesting that, as The Band, the group was known more for its reluctance in the live arena than for its live prowess. This was in part due to leader Robbie Robertson's stage jitters, which seemed to worsen as The Band's status swelled. ROCK OF AGES provides a telling account of what glorious heights The Band was capable of when it tore loose onstage.
Here the five members function as one shifting, interlocking force, summoning Americana, phantom soul, and barroom rockers with ease and freedom. Garth Hudson conjures pure organ voodoo with an impromptu instrumental, "The Genetic Method," before the band launches into the otherworldly "Chest Fever." Elsewhere the live document percolates with similarly inspired fervor. New Orleanian Allen Touissant must receive his share of the credit, as his horn arrangements pump and drive The Band's earth-drenched rock up from the dirt and into the stratosphere.
Artist Overview
The Band began as the Hawks, backing up rockabilly cat Ronnie Hawkins. In the mid-1960s, they became Bob Dylan's ensemble of choice, aiding him in his epochal switch to an electric rock-based format. When they emerged as an independent recording entity at the end of the '60s, they helped usher in a move towards earthy roots-rock as a generation shied away from the clamor and excess of the psychedelic era. The mostly Canadian group synthesized a wide variety of traditional American styles in a unique hodgepodge that took full advantage of each member's unique multi-instrumental abilities. THE LAST WALTZ film and album provided their 1978 swan song, but the Band began anew in the '80s without songwriter/guitarist Robbie Robertson.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (5/25/01, p.81) - "...Among the extras for diehards to gorge on: a CD's worth of unreleased live outtakes from 1972's ROCK OF AGES, including 4 songs with Bob Dylan." - Rating: A
Q (7/01, p.130) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Slicker and more contemporary [than previous releases]...a farewell to their heyday, bolstered by a superbly haphazard cover of 'Lovin' You Is Sweeter Than Ever'..."
Down Beat (10/01, p.66) - 4.5 stars out of 5 - "...They put across their best songs and a few covers with touches of ecstasy..."
Mojo (Publisher) (6/01, p.123) - "...A radically restructred live album, their past glories terrifically enhanced by the presence of Allen Toussaint's crack horn section...Now with an additional 10 tracks, the entire concert is presented as it was..."
