Bob's Boots ref  #

From the Nov. '95 issue of "Live! Music"
Review by Bill Glahn  /  Edited by C.D. Pinkerton
The complete soundboard recording was used for this elaborate four CD set of The Band's farewell show of Thanksgiving Day 1976. Recorded at San Francisco's Winterland, the concert was filmed for commercial release by Martin Scorsese. In the subsequent three LP soundtrack, some songs were eliminated; and the song sequence was shuffled around to create a better flow. 
The Complete Last Waltz restores all of the omitted tracks, and is sequenced exactly as the concert was performed. 
The packaging is as exquisite as the original event. The four discs are contained in a riveted book binder cover that houses the CD slip covers, as well as a copy of the Last Waltz guest welcome card. The title is stamped in gold on the album front. Also included are 36 pages of photos, liner notes, song and personnel listings, discographies, etc. 
Only 3,000 sets were pressed, and each album is hand numbered on the inside front. The recording is solid. It's a pre-remix soundboard, so even the released tracks have a slightly different flavor to them. Some portions contain a "hum", indicating that this might be from film footage, but it doesn't intrude too badly. The Complete Last Waltz is for those who just can't be satisfied with a chopped version of The Band's last show. It's a pricey affair, but with such a large dose of worthwhile unreleased material, it's well worth the investment to those with more than a passing appreciation for The Band.
