The album includes many of The Band’s best-known and critically acclaimed songs, including “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” which Rolling Stone named the 249th greatest song of all time. The magazine also ranked the album number 45 in their list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Time magazine included it in their unranked 2006 list of the 100 greatest albums.
Robert Christgau, who spent 37 years as the chief music critic and senior editor for The Village Voice, declared it better than Abbey Road, which had been released four days following, writing that The Band’s LP is an “A-plus record if I’ve ever rated one.”
The album is preserved in the National Recording Registry.
The 2CD and 2LP editions feature a new stereo mix of the album by Bob Clearmountain, the previously unreleased complete “Live At Woodstock” performance from 1969, and thirteen bonus tracks including six previously unreleased outtakes and alternate versions.
The Super Deluxe package also features an exclusive book with a new essay by Anthony DeCurtis and classic photos by Elliott Landy. The new stereo mix is also cut at 45RPM and available on 180-Gram 2LP alongside a reproduction of The Band’s 1969 7-inch vinyl single for "Rag Mama Rag" (b/w “The Unfaithful Servant”). Lastly, there is a 5.1 surround mix and 96/24 high res audio on Blu-Ray.
