Released as a companion to Robbie Robertson's 2016 memoir of the same name, Testimony is the singer/songwriter's own take on his musical history -- an 18-track compilation that samples from every era of his career, from his time supporting Ronnie Hawkins to his stabs at moody trip-hop.
While the book ends when the Band disbands, Testimony finds space for selections from his solo career -- five songs total, with 1991's Storyville earning the largest play and the electronica aspects of 1998's Contract from the Underworld of Red Boy and 2011's How to Become Clairvoyant diminished.
