About the photograph:
This photograph was taken in 1968 in the hamlet of Bearsville in the town of Woodstock, outside of the house that Levon Helm and Rick Danko were renting at the time. It was shot and used for their masterful debut album Music From Big Pink. It endures as a timeless photo and one of the defining images of this legendary and highly influential group.
Elliott Landy was there: he was the official photographer at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, and he shot many legendary photographs of icons like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin The Band, The Doors, Van Morrison and so many other musical heroes of the 1960s and 70s.
And of course, The Band.
Elliott Landy had unprecedented access to The Band, both before and after they blew the world away with their debut album, Music From Big Pink. Elliott shot all of the photos for that album, as well as the album cover for their second, self-titled album.

This photo is in a protective plastic sleeve, which has created some glare in the auction photo. THe actual item is beautiful and rich... the picture here doesn't really do it justice. Will be mailed in a poster tube to winner, or can be picked up at Radio Woodstock in Woodstock, NY.
