Live at Watkins Glen is a 1995 album by the Band, presented by Capitol Records (without the band's involvement) as a live album from the Summer Jam at Watkins Glen rock festival held outside Watkins Glen, New York, on July 28, 1973 in front of 600,000 people. Garth Hudson's organ solo, "Too Wet to Work", and the plainly titled "Jam" come from the actual Watkins Glen concert, as does the introduction of the group by Bill Graham. The former track appears on the out-of-print 1994 box set Across The Great Divide, but the latter track is only present on the Watkins Glen disc. Other than those two tracks, the remainder of the tracks are actually outtakes from various studio sessions by the Band with overdubbed crowd noise to create the impression that the material was recorded at the Watkins Gle

  • Live at Watkins Glen is a 1995 album by the Band, presented by Capitol Records (without the band's involvement) as a live album from the Summer Jam at Watkins Glen rock festival held outside Watkins Glen, New York, on July 28, 1973 in front of 600,000 people. Garth Hudson's organ solo, "Too Wet to Work", and the plainly titled "Jam" come from the actual Watkins Glen concert, as does the introduction of the group by Bill Graham. The former track appears on the out-of-print 1994 box set Across The Great Divide, but the latter track is only present on the Watkins Glen disc. Other than those two tracks, the remainder of the tracks are actually outtakes from various studio sessions by the Band with overdubbed crowd noise to create the impression that the material was recorded at the Watkins Glen concert. "Back to Memphis" and "Endless Highway" are available on the 2001 re-release of Moondog Matinee, without the crowd overdubs. The rest of the tracks are available on the 2001 two-CD re-release of Rock of Ages as "previously unavailable" tracks, with the exception of "Don't Ya Tell Henry", which is replaced with an alternate cut featuring Bob Dylan. The true background of the album was revealed in the liner notes of the remastered Moondog Matinee CD. The following quote is from the 2001 liner notes, "Chuck Berry's Going Back To Memphis, on the other hand, was completed and ready for inclusion on the album Moondog Matinee but ended up being shelved in favor of Promised Land. This version has been released before complete with overdubbed audience sounds as the opening track on the fraudulent Live at Watkins Glen CD. No one in the Band was connected with that particular release which had been originally mastered sometime in the late 1970s or early 1980s, although not released until 1995. The outtake of Endless Highway included here, which was recorded sometime between Cahoots and Moondog Matinee, was similarly included on the Watkins Glen CD with overdubbed audience." (en)
  • Live at Watkins Glen es un álbum en directo del grupo canadiense de rock The Band, publicado en 1995 y presentado por Capitol Records como una grabación en directo en el festival de rock Summer Jam at Watkins Glen, organizado a las afueras de Watkins Glen, Nueva York, el 28 de julio de 1973 frente a 600.000 personas. A pesar de presentarse como álbum en directo, es una recopilación de temas en directo y de temas de estudio con postproducción. Existe varias razones para creer que poco contenido del álbum procede del concierto. En primer lugar, el tono del bajo y de la batería cambia entre las selecciones de los temas en directo. Además, la lista de canciones interpretada difiere de las canciones tocadas por el grupo en la época. Los temas proceden de tres fuentes distintas: de conciertos en la Academia de la Música entre 1971 y 1972, que acabarían por publicarse en Rock of Ages; de outtakes de estudio de 1973, y del concierto Summer Jam.

  • Live at Watkins Glen ist ein Live-Album der kanadischen Folk- und Country-Rock-Gruppe The Band, das am 4. April 1995 auf Capitol Records erschien. Capitol veröffentlichte das Album als Live-Dokument des Auftrittes der Gruppe beim Summer Jam at Watkins Glen am 28. Juli 1973, einem Rockmusik-Festival, bei dem auch die Grateful Dead und The Allman Brothers Band spielten. Die Realität sieht allerdings etwas anders aus. Vermutlich stammen nur sehr wenige der auf dem Album enthaltenen Aufnahmen tatsächlich vom Watkins Glen Festival. Es ist erwiesen, dass die Band einige der präsentierten Songs überhaupt nicht auf dem Festival spielte. Außerdem ändern sich der Klang von E-Bass und Snare drum leicht zwischen den einzelnen Tracks. Mit an Sicherheit grenzender Wahrscheinlichkeit stammen die Songs des Albums tatsächlich von drei verschiedenen Quellen: 1. * bisher unveröffentlichte Aufnahmen von den Konzerten im Dezember 1971, aus denen das Rock of Ages-Album hervorging 2. * Studioaufnahmen von 1973 mit später hinzugefügtem Applaus 3. * bearbeitete Versionen von Aufnahmen des Watkins Glen Festivals Von allen Songs des Albums stammen nur Too Wet to Work und Jam tatsächlich vom Watkins Glen Festival. Back to Memphis und Endless Highway fallen in die zweite Gruppe und sind ohne den Applaus als Bonustracks auf der CD-Version von Moondog Matinee enthalten. Der Rest der Songs stammt von den 1971er Aufnahmen in der Academy of Music in New York City. Live at Watkins Glen war weder bei Kritikern noch beim Publikum ein großer Erfolg. Das Album wurde auch dafür kritisiert, dass es sich nicht um einen regulären Konzertmitschnitt handelt und der Titel daher irreführend ist. Außerdem sind die meisten Songs bereits auf den CD-Versionen von Moondog Matinee und Rock of Ages, beziehungsweise dem Boxset Across the Great Divide enthalten gewesen, was den Erwerb der CD selbst für Hardcore-Fans unnötig machte. Allgemein gelten Rock of Ages und The Last Waltz als bessere Live-Alben der Gruppe in ihrer Originalbesetzung. (de)
