first_imgThe Band’s The Last Waltz is arguably one of the greatest recognizable concerts and live albums of all time. On Thanksgiving day of 1976 in San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom, the group ended their tenure with an all-star cast of musicians, celebrating an enormous musical legacy with one final performance. Throughout the night, The Band hosted musical guests like Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Dr. John, Neil Young, Neil Diamond, Ringo Starr, Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell and so many more over the course of the night. Adding to the legacy of The Last Waltz is the accompanying concert footage, as it was captured in documentary form by the great Martin Scorsese and first released in April of 1978.Today, we’ve learned that The Last Waltz will soon be re-released as a massive box set, going deeper into The Band’s final show than ever before. Rhino Records will put out the release in a number of formats, including a remastered two-CD version, four-CD/Blu-ray Deluxe Edition and six-LP Deluxe Edition vinyl on November 11th. That will be followed by a massive four-CD/2-Blu-ray Collector’s Edition on December 9th.The initial Deluxe Edition releases will feature complete concert audio, with rehearsals and outtakes, and the vinyl version will feature 180-gram records in an ornate life-top box. These editions include songs that were not featured in the classic Last Waltz film, including “Furry Sings the Blues” with Joni Mitchell and “All Our Past Times” with Eric Clapton.Meanwhile, the limited Collector’s Edition includes the complete audio, as well as a full Blu-ray of the film and a second Blu-ray with a rare interview from Scorsese and Robbie Robertson from the 1990s. This also features a full 300-page book with Scorsese’s shooting script, and previously unseen photos from the night. Scorsese himself has penned the foreword for this collector’s item, and only 2,500 will be released worldwide.Check out the full tracklisting for The Last Waltz Collector’s Edition, below.Disc One1. “Theme From The Last Waltz” (with orchestra)2. “Up On Cripple Creek”3. “The Shape I’m In”4. “It Makes No Difference”5. “Who Do You Love” (with Ronnie Hawkins)6. “Life Is A Carnival”7. “Such A Night” (with Dr. John)8. “The Weight”9. “Down South In New Orleans” (with Bobby Charles)10. “This Wheel’s On Fire”11. “Mystery Train” (with Paul Butterfield)12. “Caldonia” (with Muddy Waters)13. “Mannish Boy” (with Muddy Waters)14. “Stagefright”Disc Two1. “Rag Mama Rag”2. “All Our Past Times” (with Eric Clapton)3. “Further On Up The Road” (with Eric Clapton)4. “Ophelia”5. “Helpless” (with Neil Young)6. “Four Strong Winds” (with Neil Young)7. “Coyote” (with Joni Mitchell)8. “Shadows And Light” (with Joni Mitchell)9. “Furry Sings The Blues” (with Joni Mitchell)10. “Acadian Driftwood”11. “Dry Your Eyes” (with Neil Diamond)12. “The W.S.
