Richard Manuel, to me the most beautiful male voice in rock music, tragedy impending from the first moment on. And he was just one fifth of equal talents. Something burned in them, something very dark, reaching out for the light, don't know, if it ever got there, maybe for one moment in "Rags & bones" as a story of the past.

Amazing musicians, pretty much a fundamental part of American popular music. Did everything, turned up everywhere, stayed cool, kept credibility. Even the post-Robertson "Jericho" album is underrated.

i agree that stage fright is under rated. I also would add it to "the Band" and "Big Pink".

Stage Fright, The Band and Music from Big Pink are really great albums.

The Band did them all amazingly.

I'm surprised how little attention Stage Fright has been given, its got some excellent songs on there.

I don't think Levon Helm would be traumatized by being lumped in with Canadians...
The Band are epic - grossly overlooked in the reputation of the 60s and 70s. They trump CSN and the Byrds, easily. Top playing, top songwriting, top melody.

Well done, Robbie & co.

My favorite band.

They are not all canadians. Levon Helm is from the US, so nationality should be mixed.
