INSIDE BIG Pink... fresh from a dip... hanging out on the land, The Band’s life in Woodstock seemed nothing short of a bucolic idyll.
The farm gate onto Levon Helm and co’s ’60s rural retreat is swung open by a new exhibition of photographs taken by Elliott Landy, a frequent visual chronicler of The Band and Bob Dylan.
Staged by the Proud Camden gallery between June 9 and July 24, The Band Photographs 1968-1969 offers an intimate peek into the environment in which The Band wrote their breakthrough songs and collaborated with Bob Dylan on the material known as The Basement Tapes.
MOJO has a preview gallery from the show, which you can view below, while more details of the exhibition can be found by visiting www.proud.co.uk.
And if this glimpse of the Americana godfathers’ country living has whetted your appetite, get a copy of MOJO ’60s magazine (cover pictured above). The latest issue, Volume 5, is on sale now, and features even more of Landy’s Band photography, plus features on David Bowie, The Who, Howlin’ Wolf, MC5, The Rolling Stones and more.
