Band – Jericho

I don’t own Islands before this, or High On The Hog or Jubilation after it. So Jericho, their 8th studio album, is the last studio album of the Band I own, at the moment, and it’s on cassette! I intend to correct these oversiiiiights.

Released 17 years after their ‘farewell concert,’ Jericho is the first record featuring a new line-up (Jim Weider, Randy Ciarlante and Richard Bell joined Levon Helm, Garth Hudson and Rick Danko). There were also 14 other guest musicians on the album, including Champion Jack Dupree, Colin Linden and Steve Jordan (among many others).  

Much was made of Robbie Robertson not being on the record, but I like it. I think it proves they did just fine without him, too. 

They even covered Springsteen:

    I think it’s interesting that Robertson always apparently saw the split as a hiatus and thought they would record again, and yet he never got back with the others. I just watched the documentary Once We Were Brothers and while it is one sided it is an interesting insight on Robertson. I am convinced I have this album somewhere but I can’t find it.
