LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- The Band's Robbie Robertson says the new box set of the group's music is a compilation that does Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees justice.

"There's been so many things in the past that were just ... wrong," says Robertson, who served as executive producer on "A Musical History," retrospective that features 111 audio and video tracks from the celebrated group's 13-year recording career, on its own and backing Bob Dylan and Ronnie Hawkins.

"This time I feel like the eagles had landed, that it has the proper stuff in there, it follows the story right, all the information is correct. The whole thing feels like, 'All right, this chapter is done. I'm caught up,'" Robertson said.

Among the highlights of "A Musical History" are 37 unreleased performances as well as nine rare video clips, including a 1976 performance on "Saturday Night Live."

The Band released nine albums of its between 1968-1978, including the soundtrack to Martin Scorsese's concert documentary, "The Last Waltz." The quintet was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.
