Music From Big Pink Wannabes – A Fuzzdandy Mix of 70’s Artists that Sound Like The Band

If you like The Band but you’ve listened to the albums, you dig them but wish they’d made another album, maybe around 1970 time, then this Compilation should appease you. We’ve been searching, listening & compiling this mix for about 3 years, it will probably be an ongoing playlist which we add to as we find more, but this makes a terrific Band-esque album as it is. We actually found lots more tracks which were not available on Apple Music so we couldn’t add those, but luckily the majority were available.
Uncut made a similar compilation available in 2005 as a free CD, but that was made up mostly of modern artists & no real rarities. We wanted the mix to sound authentic, so we’ve made sure all of the tracks were recorded in 1969 – early 70’s. Some artists clearly want to be The Band, but a few I’m sure actually inspired The Band’s sound.
