The Best of the Band is the first greatest hits package by Canadian-American rock group The Band. Featuring ten tracks taken from six of their first seven albums (not counting 1974's Before the Flood or 1975's The Basement Tapes, both with Bob Dylan), it featured two tracks from the first, second, third and seventh albums, one each from the fourth and fifth, rounded out by the early 1975 single "Twilight". All tracks written by Robbie Robertson, except where stated.

The band released their first released studio album Sigh No More (2009). Their debut peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart and the Billboard 200 in the US. Their second and third studio album Babel and Wilder Mind both debuting at number one in the UK and US, the former becoming the fastest-selling rock album of the decade. The band received eight total Grammy nominations for Babel and won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. They also won the Brit Award for Best British Group in 2013.

Best progressive rock band ever. Dark Side of the Moon is the greatest album ever, and that includes Sgt. Peppers (which does have the most innovative use of the studio ever, but the songs themselves aren't as good as on revolver). Best band, hands down. from my generation to real good looking boy, the who have created fantastic music. Who's next, Quadrophenia, Tommy, The Who by numbers, the who sell out, who are you. all great albums. and maybe 1/5 to 1/3 of people in the world like at least 30 who songs.
