It won the Juno Award for "Album of the Year", and producers Daniel Lanois and Robertson won the "Producer of the Year" Juno award, both in 1989 (there were no Juno Awards in 1988). The album includes contributions from the members of U2 and Peter Gabriel, both of whom were also working with Lanois at the time. Preliminary discussions and preproduction for Robertson's first solo album began in autumn 1984. The first producer Robertson considered for production of the album was fellow Canadian Daniel Lanois.
As a result, Robbie Robertson is an album that represents both a clear break from his past, and an ambitious attempt to take his fascination with American culture and music in a new and contemporary direction.

Robbie Robertson's first solo album sounds remarkably different from his previous work with The Band, due to his teaming up with producer Daniel Lanois (whose ethereal textures bring out a new level of emotion in his music) and members of Peter Gabriel's backing band. Robertson wasn't considered much of a singer during his tenure with The Band, but here he makes up for lost time with a set that's simply majestic. Fallen Angel," with Gabriel, pays tribute to the late Band pianist Richard Manuel, with Band organist Garth Hudson adding keyboard flourishes
