We're gettin' The Band back together, dude

Via Stereogum, news of a forthcoming tribute album to The Band called Endless Highway (Jan 2007) that I've been streaming all morning over at the 429 Records site, enjoying tunes like:

Ophelia - ALO
Look Out Cleveland - Jackie Greene
Rocking Chair - Death Cab For Cutie
Whispering Pines - Jakob Dylan
Life Is A Carnival - Trevor Hall

And you'll get a version of this one with MMJ (but the album version ain't got no Vedder)

It Makes No Difference - My Morning Jacket with Ed Vedder
(live in Pistoia, Italy - 9/20/06)

Labels: , ,

I just worked on stuff for a 2 disc "America" greatest hits/new album collection (horse with no name, lonely people, etc)

I mention it because the entire second disc is new songs collaborating with Ryan Adams, Toad the wett sproket, lots of great alt rockers!!!! I am just as suprised as you... but I'll be picking it up

No one else on that album can hold a candle to Joe Henry.
