On this night, Night 2, The Band features 1977’s Islands and closes with 1969’s The Band.

Right as rain, the show begins with Islands, described by Kelly as akin to “sci-fi merry-go-rounds,” “Community hold music,” and “half Randy Newman, half SNL theme song,” to say nothing of the organ that “turns it into a clown nightmare” and “porny” synths.
