These portraits of the individual members of The Band were taken in late 1969 for their appearance on the cover of Time Magazine, on January 12, 1970 -- the second-ever rock band on Time's cover, after the Beatles in '67, so clearly a photo shoot of some significance. This may be why The Band agreed to do studio portraits, which are quite rare in their peak period. However, Time opted to use a drawing on that cover instead, and these photographs were unseen until their recent discovery by Attie's estate.
