The Band Set To Reissue Music From Big Pink

The Band will celebrate the 50th anniversary of their debut album Music From Big Pink with a new reissue featuring a new stereo mix, alternate takes, outtakes and more.

The Anniversary Edition also contains five alternate takes and outtakes from the Big Pink recording sessions and a previously unreleased a cappella rendition of the Band’s “I Shall Be Released.” Music From Big Pink Anniversary Edition vinyl is pressed on 180-gram black or limited edition 180-gram pink records. The hardbound book exclusive to the box set houses a new essay from Rolling Stone‘s David Fricke and photographs from the era.

The reissue arrives August 31 in a variety of formats, including a Super Deluxe CD/Blu-ray/2LP/7-inch vinyl box set with a hardbound book. All configurations will feature a new stereo mix for the album produced from the original four-track analog masters; the new mix also contains previously unreleased chatter from the studio sessions.
