The Band‘s critically acclaimed career-spanning box set, A Musical History, executive produced by Robbie Robertson, is the most comprehensive collection ever created for the group. Robertson has again partnered with Capitol/EMI Music Catalog Marketing to present a new collection of choice cuts from the box set, titled The Band: The Best Of A Musical History. To be released April 24 in CD and deluxe CD/DVD packages and digitally, the physical release booklets feature cover art photos by renowned rock photographer Elliott Landy and several other classic Band photos.
