The Band: Cahoots
Barney Hoskyns, Capitol Records, October 2000
IRONICALLY, after the release of Stage Fright in September 1970, The Band spent the ensuing three months touring America. "We had it set up pretty well," remembered tour manager Jonathan Taplin, later the successful producer of films such as Taxi Driver. "We had a little turbo-prop airplane that would land near Woodstock in Kingston, so it would literally take twenty minutes to get to the plane and go to any college or venue where we were playing."
