The first album proper of The Band that I purchased was their self-titled, second release. It took me a while to get into, but when I finally 'got' it, the album was like catnip for me--I was going to bed with their songs stuck in my head, and I was waking up with them stuck in my head. I loved the sound of that album; very organic and rustic.

So the first thing that I noticed about The Band's third album, 'Stage Fright', was the different 'sound' of it. It's a little slicker and polished than their second album; 'shinier', maybe. Ultimately I preferred the sound of their second album to this one. I was familiar with two of the songs off of it ('Stage Fright' and 'The Shape I'm In') from their live movie 'The Last Waltz', so I used those as anchors when listening to it for the first time. But after a few listens, as seems to be the rule for truly great albums, I got to know the rest of the songs and appreciated the 'sound' of this album quite a bit (a band can't always do the same thing right? The songs on this album are amazing, and easily are some of the best that they had written up to that point. Richard Manuel especially stands out on his track, 'Sleeping'. The album closes with 'The Rumour', a track outlining the pitfalls of newfound superstardom. Musically it's something new to them, and it really could be the best track on the album.

If you're just getting into The Band and are wondering if this one is worth picking up, then do not worry--this album is great.

The conventional wisdom is right: Pound for pound, "Big Pink" and "The Band" are more complete successes for this group, and I love them both. But I love "Stage Fright" more. It is the album where this group drops its masks and speaks directly to the audience about themselves and each other.
The Band is really two duos: Helm and Danko, who are usually paired as singers on some of the group's best-loved material, and Robertson and Manuel, who are engaged in a sort of musical and spiritual dialogue that often forms much of the depth, richness and mystery of this group. That dialogue is the dominant theme of "Stage Fright" in its many evocations of the theme of self-destructiveness, especially the self-destructiveness of a great artist.
My theory is, Richard Manuel was the artistic soul of the The Band. He was their best singer, by far. His "feel" approach to playing the many instruments he played, especially piano, gave the Band a funky, soulful "bottom" that contrasted with the highly intellectual approaches of both Robertson and Hudson. Manuel was responsible, on their first three albums, for some of their very best songs as writer or co-writer: "Tears of Rage," "In A Station," "Lonesome Suzie," "Whispering Pines," "Across the Great Divide," and, on this album, "Sleeping" and "The Shape I'm In" were at least partly his. But...Richard Manuel was not a particularly responsible person. He was, in fact a drunk, and an unmotivated writer. He was a sadly vulnerable man, for whom, as Robertson writes in "Sleeping," "the world was too sore to live in." In some ways, being in the Band destroyed him. At the same time, it created a place for him to hide.
Robertson, ever the brilliant control freak, clearly admired and loved Richard Manuel, and was also exasperated with him.

By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 27 2011

I think I have figured out why there is such a division on MoFi's SACD's. Until recently I was using two way JBL's for my speakers along with a JBL sub woofer for my front sound. These were made in the late 80's so JBL was putting out great speakers. But when I played this SACD it did sound flat compared to other SACDs. I recently bought a great used Pair of tower speakers and moved my old ones to the rear. Well sure enough when I started to listen to this SACD it sounded amazing. Why? When you use bookshelf speakers or even more with Satellite speakers a good portion of the lower end frequencies are produced from sub woofer and not the speakers. I think what MoFi has done has mastered them for a left and right system not one with a sub woofer. So in tower speakers they have woofers built in so none of your frequencies are cut off and redirected. The full sound is from your front left and right speakers.
I could be wrong about this but it's the only thing I figure would cause such a huge difference sound wise. It's not a case of my new speakers being that much better because 5.1 mixes sound the same as they always did (well with better back sound) and in case of those Mixes the sub woofer has it's own signal it's not just pulling it off the front speaker audio.
As for this SACD it is a classic album and the only reason it's not treated with the respect it deserves is because of how incredible the first two records were before it.

By Mark Nenadov TOP 1000 REVIEWER on June 4 2008
Format: Audio CD
This is a good album, but it pales in comparison to "Music From Big Pink" or the self-titled "The Band".

The sound represents a slightly darker side of The Band's career than the period of the first two albums. It is melodic, and musically well-done. But, it is dark (for The Band) and pessimistic. The sound is metallic-tinged and sharp. The words are certainly not jovial, and you can hear a distraught, hurt tone in many of the vocals. At the most peppy and spunky moments, its aura is at best ambivalent. This is not to knock this album, again I repeat, it is good musically. Just don't try to cheer yourself up with it.

The best tracks in my opinion are Strawberry Wine, Time To Kill, The Shape I'm In, The W.S. Walcott Medicine Show, and Stage Fright.
