The Band - Palladium Circles: The Classic NYC Broadcast 1976 CD


Mesmerizing 1976 live broadcast recording from the final months of The Band's original run.

Just two months before their farewell concert The Last Waltz, The Band performed an electric show at the iconic New York venue, The Palladium. The performance was broadcast live on local radio station WNEW FM, allowing everyone in the vicinity to hear this dynamic gig. It may have been one of The Band's last live performances, but the passion in their music showed no sign of wavering. Their more famous and high profile goodbye concert performed alongside the good and great of contemporary music a couple of months henceforth would become the group's swansong thanks to the film of the event made by Martin Scorsese, but this more intimate affair provides an excellent opportunity to hear just how great The Band were sounding live in a more traditional setting at this juncture.
