Their albums were analyzed and reviewed as intensely as any records by their onetime employer and sometime mentor Bob Dylan. Although the Band retired from touring after The Last Waltz and disbanded several years later, their legacy thrived for decades, perpetuated by the bandmates' respective solo careers as well as the enduring strength of their catalog. When pianist Willard Jones left the lineup one year later, Hawkins began looking at some of the local music talent in Toronto in late He approached a musician named Scott Cushnie about joining the Hawks on keyboards.
Cushnie was already playing in a band with Robbie Robertsonhowever, and would only join Hawkins if the latter musician could come along. After some resistance from HawkinsRobertson entered the lineup on bass, replacing a departing Jimmy Evans.
Additional lineup switches took place over the next few years, with Robbie Robertson shifting to rhythm guitar behind Fred Carter 's and, briefly, Roy Buchanan 's lead playing.
Rick Danko came in on bass infollowed by Richard Manuel on piano and LP) vocals. Around that same time, Garth Hudsona classically trained musician LP) could read music, became the last piece of the initial puzzle as organ player.
Hawkins himself was practically Toronto's answer to Elvis Presleyand he remained true to the music even as Presley himself softened and broadened his sound. The mix of personalities within the group meshed well, better than they did with Hawkinswho, unbeknownst to him, was soon the odd man out in his own group. As new members DankoManueland Hudson came aboard -- all Canadian, and replacing Hawkins ' fellow Southerners -- Hawkins lost control of the group, to some extent, as they began working together more closely.
Finally, the Hawks parted company with Ronnie Hawkins during the summer ofthe singer's at-times-overbearing personality and ego getting the better of the relationship. A hook-up with a young John Hammond, Jr. Robertson and Helm played behind Dylan at his Forest Hills concert in New York in a bootleg tape of which survivesand he ultimately signed up the entire group.
The hook-up with Dylan changed the Hawksbut it wasn't always an easy collaboration. Additionally, they'd learned to play tightly and precisely and were accustomed to performing in front of audiences that were interested primarily in having a good time and dancing. Now Dylan had them playing electric adaptations of folk music, with lots of strumming but lacking the kind of edge they were accustomed to putting on their work. As it happens, all of those influences are related, but not directly, and not in ways that were obvious to the players in Ironically, in the spring ofthe group had just missed their chance at what could have been a legendary meeting on record with a musician they did understand.
They hadn't realized it at the time, but Williamson was a dying man; by the time the Hawks were ready to return and try to cut some records with him, he had passed on. Another problem for the group about working with Dylan concerned his audience. The Hawks had played in front of a lot of different audiences in the previous four years, but almost all of them were people primarily interested in enjoying themselves.
Dylanhowever, was playing for crowds that seemed ready to reject him on principle. The Hawks weren't accustomed to confronting the kinds of passions that drove the folk audience, any more than they were initially prepared for the freewheeling nature of Dylan 's performances -- he liked to make changes in the way he played songs on the spot, and the group was often hard put to keep up with him, at least at first, although the experience did make them a more flexible ensemble on-stage.
Eventually, the group did end up performing as Dylan 's backup band on his tour, although Levon Helm left soon after the tour began.
The group ultimately fell under the management orbit of Dylan 's own manager, Albert Grossmanwho persuaded the four core members sans Helm to join Dylan in Woodstock, New York, working on the sessions that ultimately became the Basement Tapes in their various configurations, none of which would be heard officially for almost a decade.
Indeed, up to this time, only a single 45 B-side, "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues," caught live from the tour just ended, had surfaced.
Finally, a recording contract for the group -- rechristened the Band -- was secured by Grossman from Capitol Records. Levon Helm returned to the fold, and the result was Music from Big Pinkan indirect outgrowth of the Basement Tapes. This album, enigmatically named and packaged, sounded like nothing else being done by anybody in music when it was released in July of The press latched onto the album before the public did, but over the next year, the Band became one of the most LP) phenomenon in rock music, and Music from Big Pink acquired a mystique and significance akin to such albums as Beggars Banquet.
The group and album ran counter to the so-called counterculture, and took a little getting used to, if only for their lack of a smooth, easily categorizable sound.
