The Band’s 40th Anniversary Editions Of ‘The Last Waltz’ Due In November

On November 25, 1976 The Band ended a Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame worthy career with one of the most celebrated concerts in the history of the genre, The Last Waltz. The concert was documented by director Martin Scorsese for one of rock’s most famous concert films. Rhino Records will honor the upcoming 40th anniversary of The Last Waltz with four new anniversary editions of The Band’s finale including a collector’s edition boxed set featuring Scorsese’s never-before-seen shooting script.

A 40th Anniversary Edition of The Last Waltz features the original soundtrack with newly remastered audio from the original master tapes on two CDs, while a 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition contains complete audio from the concert, including rehearsals and outtakes, plus The Last Waltz film directed by Scorsese on Blue-Ray. There’s also a 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Vinyl featuring complete audio from the concert pressed on 180-gram vinyl for the first time and presented in an ornate lift-top box.

The aforementioned 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition will be limited to 2,500 copies. This massive set contains complete audio from the concert, The Last Waltz film on Blu-Ray and a second Blu-Ray disc including a rarely seen interview from the 1990s with Scorsese and The Band guitarist Robbie Robertson, photo gallery and 5.1 audio mix of the original album. The Collector’s Edition also includes a 300-page book bound in red faux-leather with a full replication of Scorsese’s shooting script, rare and previously unseen photos, set sketches, three foldout storyboards and a foreword written by Scorsese.
