The Band

(Classic Rock) The Band's live collection The Last Waltz is set for a 40th anniversary reissue. Four new versions of the live package will be released via Rhino, including a collector's edition box set featuring the never-before-seen shooting script by director Martin Scorsese.

The Last Waltz will be available in 2CD, 6LP and 4CD plus Blu-ray formats from November 11. The limited box set comes in a 4CD plus 2 Blu-ray format, with a 300-page book bound in faux red leather. It will be available from December 9.

The second Blu-ray disc includes a rarely-seen interview from the 1990s with Martin Scorsese and Robbie Robertson, photo gallery and a 5.1 audio mix of the original album. The book features a full replication of Scorsese's shooting script, rare and previously unseen photos, set sketches, three foldout storyboards and a foreword by Scorsese.

Guitarist Robbie Robertson says: "We are putting out a super deluxe celebration of this occasion, and with that we've been fortunate enough to be able to use the original shooting script that Martin Scorsese made for what he had everybody doing for capturing this.

"It's all in the package. After it, he gave this to me as a gift. It has the lyrics to the songs, every lighting move, every camera thing that they were shooting for. It's extraordinary.

"He had one oft these made for me and one for himself. There's only been two of these ever in existence. Now he's agreed to let this be made and shared with the audience." Read more here.
