As most people familiar with THE BAND's music know, I took the photos for their first two albums, Music From Big Pink and The Band. I shot over 8000 frames of film. Of these, only about 30 have been widely published.
For 40 odd years, I have lived with many more photos of the Band than anyone else has seen. I've wanted to make a book of them but could never find a publisher. Now it is within reach. With your support via the crowdsourcing website, Kickstarter, I'll be able to print and publish a book which allows these images to be seen as they deserve to be seen, beautifully printed on heavyweight art quality paper.
Please send and post this Kickstarter link to spread the word.
