The Band Cahoots Limited Edition 180gram Audiophile LP.
Historically overlooked, Cahoots stands as one of The Band’s finest efforts and includes contributions from iconic pianist/arranger Allen Toussaint and Irish bard Van Morrison, whose feverish duet with Band vocalist Richard Helm on “4% Pantomime” is the equivalent of two poker players trying to outsmart one another. A similar carnivalesque spirit infuses the entire set.

Cahoots was the first album recorded at Albert Grossman's Bearsville Studios in Woodstock. The sessions were difficult, as the studio was still having the bugs worked out and the Band was experiencing internal problems. Robertson's songs had become much more difficult; the structures, chord changes, and arrangements were increasingly complex. Despite these factors, the album has a number of gems, including 'Life Is a Carnival' with its great Allen Toussaint horn arrangement, Dylan's 'When I Paint My Masterpiece,' 'The River Hymn,' and 'Where Do We Go from Here.'

If you’re missing this album or simply never heard it, you’re in for a treat.
