UDSACD 2045 Cover
The Legendary Quintet's 1971 Album - an Overlooked Gem

istorically overlooked, Cahoots stands as one of The Band's finest efforts and includes contributions from iconic pianist/arranger Allen Toussaint and Irish bard Van Morrison, whose feverish duet with Band vocalist Richard Helm on “4% Pantomime” is the equivalent of two poker players trying to outsmart one another.   A similar carnivalesque spirit infuses the entire set.   If you're missing this album or simply never heard it, you're in for a treat.

And there's never been a better opportunity to experience Cahoots.   Remastered from the original master tapes by Mobile Fidelity's expert engineers, the record sounds more open, detailed, warm, and revealing than ever before.   This Hybrid SACD version is guaranteed to bring you right into the Bearsville studio where it all went down.

This historic album is presented in the Super Audio Compact Disc format, which contains a CD layer and ultra-high resolution layer of music.   Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab transferred the original 2-track ¼" analog master tapes using the critically acclaimed GAIN 2TM System.
