One of my favourite band songs was Ferdinand the Imposter a bonus on the 2000 reissue of Big Pink. I’d love to see an episode or two, if it doesn’t already exist, on some real deep tracks. Robbie was such a prolific writer and many didn’t make it in the records, and I’m sure some of the other...Read full review »

Everything about how the topic is handled as a podcast is perfect here. Start at the beginning and just gobble it up.

That it’s impossible to absorb and enjoy this,

Great job with this man, very well produced and I learned so much I never knew. Good tunes and research. Cheers

I’ve known bits and pieces of the Band’s history and of course the member’s names and some of their back stories but this is a fantastic way to fill in the loose ends of the path they took and the way they walked it. Highly recommended podcast listening in my humble opinion.

I have been intrigued by The Band and have been reading and listening to everything I’ve found on them during the pandemic. Why wasn’t I into them in high school??!! I would have loved to hear them, specifically Levon, in person. Regardless, this podcast has been excellent and I’ve listened to...Read full review »

Not just an informative and insightful take on the history of the Band, but also well edited and produced with great sound snippets, great pace and excellent topics. Thanks for compiling this.

Only complaint is the narrator is just speaking a little too slowly. Tried at 1 1/2 speed but then everyone else sounds like chipmunks lol

But I’m so confused - who is making this podcast? I can’t find any kind of introduction, bio or info about the creator or the narrator. Who am I listening to???

Great podcast and very insightful and entertaining but for God’s sake why did you keep that irritating background guitar and organ music throughout the podcast? Would have rated it higher without it

If you are a devoted fan of the Band or someone just discovering them, you will find much to like about this podcast. They go deep on the history of the group with lots of details about recording, the group members, and song by song breakdown of every album. My only complaint- please ditch that...Read full review »

If you’re a fan of The Band like I am, this podcast is a must listen. It’s filled with a lot of cool information and interviews. It’s actually an amazing history lesson on the subject. 5 stars.

Each episode bring a step back to music you grew up with and to introduce a new generation to this group. I love discovering long lost music which is included in episodes. It is very well done and now I am off to join this podcasts Facebook group. Many thanks!

I was excited about this podcast. I had a long drive ahead of me so I was going to binge all of Season 1. After episode 2 ended I was done. The narrator has an odd sense of timing-lots long pauses at weird places and it sounds like everything he says is read off of a script. But the worst is the...Read full review »

This is a treasure for fans of The Band. Wonderful resources, interviews, and insights. I am absolutely enthralled. The narrator will occasionally make a monstrous gaffe (conflating the Summer of Love with Woodstock for example) and pronouncing things like Los Feliz as “Laws Faleez” which are...Read full review »

Frequent mispronunciations and poor sound levels (usually too soft but sometimes the music or interviews are too loud). Also the usual background music has become tiresome and is not appropriate for a podcast about the Band.

Album by album, this podcast walks you thru the Band’s output with great insight and fascinating back stories. The host is engaging and excited to share the material. I’ve loved revisiting each album in turn! Highly recommended.
JahDad22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/19
Great podcast. Admittedly, the host says it not for the aficionados but for those looking to get to know The Band. I would disagree, while much of what I hear on the podcast is not new news to me, every once and a while a new tidbit is revealed (or remembered). Regardless, it is great just to...Read full review »

I usually don't like to hear writers and critics effuse about The Band because they invariably put this complicated group of characters on a pedestal, and burden the music with words like, "essential", "important", and "seminal". I am finding this podcast however to...Read full review »

I’m a full on Band nerd. I discovered them around 1975 through my brothers record collection. I was 9. The interest in them started almost immediately. Who was singing what? Why don’t more people talk about them etc. I was hooked on them. I’ve read and listened to everything Band related and this...Read full review »

If you ❤️ The Band like I do you will love this podcast!
SSueSor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/19
This is a great detailed history of The Band. Great for people who may not know too much about this group but are interested in musical history. Definitely worth a listen.
FIFIJEFFY via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/08/19
Insightful and informative recounting of The Band’s history and recording process. Highly recommended.
Jim Ohio1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/19
I just heard the episode on the Band's Second Album through the Rock and Roll Pantheon feed, and I was so impressed. Even though I've read Robbie Robertson's bio and consider myself a fan, I learned a lot from this show and loved the track-by-track analysis and the effort to tell the...Read full review »

As a super-fan of both The Band and Dylan, I love your podcast and can’t stop listening. Really informative and hooked me from episode one. One thing I have to mention is that there were two errors that were very distracting. First, Roger McGuinn is pronounced Magwinn, not Maginn. Second, Hank...Read full review »

While I applaud the intent of the author of the podcast, the largely regurgitated information leaves me feeling pretty limp after listening. There is a total lack of original insight into the band, and the background organ music is repetitive and annoying.
rockymarkwell via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/04/19
As a massive fan of The Band I approached this with excitement and a little trepidation - would it just be a rehash if what I’d already read - but I was very pleased with what I heard. Some interesting nuggets that I’d not heard before. Keep up the good work!
