AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

The 2015 digital compilation The Capitol Rarities: 1968-1977 is a nice, 33-track round-up of songs that were originally digitally released as bonus tracks on Capitol's acclaimed Band reissues from 2000 and 2001. With those expanded CDs fading into the history books, it's best for the non-LP cuts not to get stranded, particularly when so many of them are so very good. Among the highlights are the wooly "If I Lose," non-overdubbed selections originally released on the 1975 double-LP The Basement Tapes, studio versions of "Don't Do It" and "Get Up Jake," and alternates of "King Harvest (Has Surely Come)" and "Time to Kill," but it's all worthwhile.
