Bob Dylan plays Carnegie Hall in New York City. He played a solo set and then introduced his new backup band – Rick Danko on bass; Robbie Robertson on guitar; Garth Hudson on the organ; Richard Manuel on piano and Levon Helm on drums. From then they would be known simply as – The Band.
“The Band” is released. The album ended up in the National Recording Registry for being – among other things – ‘culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and reflecting life in the United States.’
