    Even after a few years of meaningless wandering, riddled with substance problems, creative problems The Band, unbeknownst to them, were about to embark on a two year journey that would elevate their profile to the largest they’d ever have. A new album with Dylan, a massive stadium sold out tour and much more. 
    Was it something they expected, most certainly not, was it something they wanted, besides Robbie probably not, but it was a chance to play with their friend Bob Dylan again and catch some of that spark they once had. 
    As with the change in status, came with a change in geography, The Band so synonymous with upstate New York, uprooted their families and headed west for the sunny shores of Los Angeles, California.

    Moondog Matinee: Part Two

    Moondog Matinee: Part Two

    When The Band entered the studio to continue to record Moondog Matinee, they switched locations. This time they flew out to Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, California to finish the last few songs. Los Angeles had been pulling The Band westward for sometime. With the rest of an album to finish, The Band couldn't turn down a request from George Harrison and Ringo Starr to help them record in the studio as well.

    Moondog Matinee: Part One

    Moondog Matinee: Part One

    "That was all we could do at the time. We couldn't get along—we all knew that fairness was a bunch of shit. We all knew we were getting screwed, so we couldn't sit down and create no more music. 'Up on Cripple Creek' and all that stuff was over—all that collaboration was over, and that” said Levon reflecting on the period just prior to the recording of "Moondog Matinee".

    In 1971, "Rock of Ages" had led to an unofficial hiatus for The Band. Independently, The Band worked on various projects separately whether it was producing, writing or performing. There were also attempts at getting The Band back together to work on their next studio album. Though, none of those attempts led to anything fruitful. Richard hadn’t written a song, or at least presented a song to the group in some time and Robbie wasn’t offering up much either since he was hitting some serious writer’s block. 

    Eventually, The Band came out of touring retirement in 1973. Which led to a legendary performance at Watkins Glen with The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers. Feeding off the energy of their live performances and feeling like more of a collective again, and hoping at reviving the creative juices needed to keep on producing albums for Capitol Records it was decided that an album of covers which eventually led to "Moondog Matinee".
