n early 1974 The Band joined Bob Dylan on a 40-date, 21-cities tour across America to record a live album that would be released on David Geffen's label Asylum.

The tour was legendary in itself, as it was Dylan's first in seven years and it meant a much-needed comeback for both Dylan and The Band. Though the audiences were drenched in nostalgia and demanded old hits on the set-list, Dylan and The Band rearranged them in such a way that they were re-invigorated, re- energized and fresh. They rocked like they never had before.

The line 'Even the President of the United States sometimes must have to stand naked' from "It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)" took on a new meaning altogether thanks to the Watergate scandal early in the year, as did 'How does it feel?' from "Like A Rolling Stone"; where before it had been a sentence of banishment it became a declaration of a new-found independence that was worn as a badge of honor, not a scarlet letter.

The recordings of Before The Flood, made mostly in New York and Los Angeles, were released in June 1974, and would peak at #3 in the Billboard 200. Available on vinyl for the first time in 25 years!
