Editors’ Notes

Robbie Robertson's first solo album sounds remarkably different from his previous work with The Band, due to his teaming up with producer Daniel Lanois (whose ethereal textures bring out a new level of emotion in his music) and members of Peter Gabriel's backing band. Robertson wasn't considered much of a singer during his tenure with The Band, but here he makes up for lost time with a set that's simply majestic. "Fallen Angel", with Gabriel, pays tribute to the late Band pianist Richard Manuel, with Band organist Garth Hudson adding keyboard flourishes. Gabriel details the striking "Broken Arrow", which became a hit for Rod Stewart. U2 collaborates on "Sweet Fire of Love" and "Testimony". The album is an atmospheric tour de force, a slice of ambient rock 'n' roll, with "Sonny Got Caught in the Moonlight" and "Somewhere Down the Crazy River" highlighting this approach. A slew of special guests keeps things bright and shiny, while Robertson handles the darker end of the spectrum. 

Customer Reviews


Robbie Robertson is a truly wonderful and diverse artist, bringing the music of his native american culture into the world of rock and modern times, and thus introducing it to the world! Sadly, a genius in his own right, with a cult following - has never achieved world wide fame that he deserves, with people such as Rod Stewart achieving fame for such songs as 'Broken Arrow', when the original is far superior. If you are not familiar with Robbie's work. post Dylan's backing band 'The Band', then please take the time to look into it, all the great rock stars are admirers and have often worked with Robbie - you will not be disappointed! New album is imminent.

Where is the classic - Shine Your Light?!!

Why can't I purchase the track - "Shine Your Light," from the excellent movie - Ladder 49?

Surely it must be available to iTunes?

Very disappointed!!

One of the premier songwriters of the rock era, Robbie Robertson was born July 5, 1943, in Toronto, Ontario.

Not long after, he began taking guitar lessons from a cousin, and gradually began composing his first songs. As time wore on, his musical interests...
