The Band: Islands (Capitol SO-11602)
Mark Shipper, Phonograph Record, April 1977
A FRIEND OF mine called me one night last summer and told me he had an extra ticket to the Band concert that night and asked me if I wanted to go. I'd never seen the group live, even though I had all their albums and had been a fan since the late '60s. For some reason, I didn't feel the compelling need to see them, figuring that they'd be around forever and I'd catch up to them sooner or later. It was then I learned that the tour last summer was to be their last, and I went.
