  1. Jubilation

    Jubilation is the tenth and final studio album by Canadian/American rock group The Band. Recorded in the spring of 1998 in Levon Helm's home studio in Woodstock, New York, it was released on September 15, 1998. Bucking the trend set on Jericho and High on the Hog, there were more originals than covers on Jubilation. Songs include "Last Train to Memphis", featuring guest guitarist Eric Clapton, Garth Hudson's solo instrumental closer "French Girls", Rick Danko's "High Cotton" and the ode to Ronnie Hawkins, "White Cadillac". On only one track, "If I Should Fail", do all six group members appear. Helm and Danko are missing from one track each, guitarist Jim Weider is missing from two. Richard Bell is replaced by producer/engineer Aaron Hurwitz on piano and keyboards for much of the album. Hudson and drummer-percussionist Randy Ciarlante are on every track. Friends and family abounded to help out. A colored vinyl of the album was released in September 1998 in a limited run. The album cover is by famed Illinois folk artist George Colin.
