Academy of Music: Live At The Academy of Music 1971 (Ltd. Deluxe Boxset)

A five-disc deluxe box set celebrating The Band‘s 1972 live album Rock Of Ages.

Rock Of Ages was originally a 2LP set compiled from recordings made during The Band’s series of shows in late December 1971, at the Academy of Music in New York City, where they were augmented by a five-man horn section, with arrangements by New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint.

Although details around this set have not yet been officially announced, aclose look at the artwork for Live At The Academy Of Music, indicates that discs one and two are the Rock Of Ages concert across two CDs, newly mixed by Bob Clearmountain. A further two CDs appear to be soundboard recordings of the fourth and final night of the gigs – New Years’ Eve 1971. The fifth and final disc is either an audio-only 5.1 surround sound DVD/Blu-ray OR it is a DVD with video footage sync’d to a 5.1 surround soundtrack.

This discs will come packaged in a hardback book, similar to The WhoQuadrophenia Director’s Cut box set of 2011, or the Sex Pistols Never Mind The Bollocks… box of 2012.
