HITS Daily Double


To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Band’s debut album Music From Big Pink, Capitol/UMe is releasing on 8/31 multiple editions, all of which feature a new stereo mix produced by Bob Clearmountain from the original four-track analog masters.

Buyers may choose from a Super Deluxe CD/Blu-ray/2LP/7-inch vinyl box set with a hardbound book; a single CD; and two-LP vinyl in either black or pink.

The 50th Anniversary Edition’s CD, digital, and box set configurations also include five outtakes and alternate recordings from the Big Pink sessions and a previously unreleased a cappella version of “I Shall Be Released.”

Exclusively for the box set, Clearmountain has also produced a new 5.1 surround mix for the album and the bonus tracks, presented on Blu-ray with the new stereo mix in high-resolution audio (96kHz/24bit).

Starting today, the new stereo mix of “The Weight” is available for streaming and for immediate download with digital album preorder.
