The Band: Rock Of Ages

Dave Marsh, Creem, November 1972

ON A GREAT NIGHT, the Band grab and mesmerize, so that neither your eyes nor your thoughts can be on anything else. It helps that they look like a society of Viennese doctors, of course, but their magic is mostly in the music – what they are playing, and how it is played. On a great night, the Band's competition just doesn't exist.
