The Band - Moondog Matinee album download

Moondog Matinee is the fifth studio album by Canadian/American rock group the Band, released in 1973. It consists entirely of cover material reflecting the group's love of R&B and blues music, with one exception in their interpretation of the theme from the film The Third Man. In a 2002 interview, Levon Helm described the reasoning for recording an album of covers: "That was all we could do at the time. We couldn't get along-we all knew that fairness was a bunch of shit.

Moondog Matinee recalls The Band's early-‘60s origins as The Hawks, a Toronto club act grinding out the era's R&B and rock hits. But while this album invokes the innocent spirit of a bygone age, it also reflects The Band as a mature group of players with distinctive musical ideas. A warm and friendly mood pervades these tracks, heard in Garth Hudson’s carnival-like organ work on Third Man Theme and Rick Danko’s sweetly yearning vocals on A Change Is Gonna Come.

CD - Phantom Import Distribution. The Band essentially went back to being the Hawks of the late '50s and early '60s on this album of cover tunes. They demonstrated considerable expertise on their versions of rock & roll and R&B standards like Clarence "Frogman" Henry's "Ain't Got No Home," Chuck Berry's "The Promised Land," and Fats Domino's "I'm Ready," but of course that didn't do much to satisfy the audience they had established with their original material and that, two years after the disappointing.
