RICK DANKO & FRIENDS
New York 1995 [no label, 3CD]

Live at The Bottom Line, New York, NY; July 29, 1995 (complete early and late shows). Very good soundboard.

Thanks to davmar77 who shared the tracks at Dime.

This is what davmar77 noted:

Recently I’d seen an article about the passing of Rick Danko in 1999 and was reminded that his birthday was December 29. Today he would have been 70 years old. Truly one of the great voices in music and one of the nicest guys I’ve met in the music business. He always made every audience seem like the best one he’d ever played to. In honor of Rick, I wanted to share this sb master that i recorded with his permission in the summer of 1995. It was recorded at The Bottom Line in NYC. This is the full early and late show and Rick is joined by a couple of old friends.

During the taping of this show I had issues with one of the channels and as the mix was mono anyway, I only used the good track for both in the transfer. That might account for the smallish size of this offering for nearly three hours of music but this is a direct transfer from my dat so it’s not lossy or anything like that. These are great shows and you could tell everyone was really enjoying the combination of musicians.

  5. I wish rick would have done his version of bobby charles` “Small Town Talk” here.
    Rick recorded a beautiful version and included it on his first solo lp “Rick danko” a great disc/lp to find that features mostmembers of the band, eric clapton and others.
    the world needs performers like rick and the fans miss him terribly, such a gentle , smiling soul..rest in peace wherever your soul resides rick.

  7. This is fantastic! Thanks BigO for these great posts from The Band and their members, as well as all of the other fantastic things that you put here.

    By JB on Jan 21, 2013

  8. This is not Fantastic…This is the sound of an artist who was once part of a great collective called The Band..who backed Dylan 66, who backed Dylan Basement and who made two shape shifting albums and one magic live album..but they were spent by 72..Done..fucked and trackmarked…all the saggy auld wigs who cant let go and admit this and still cling on to all things Stonesy,Dylany,Morrisonesqe(thatsagoodun),Beatlesy,LedZeppy,Springsteeny,Doorsy Etc Etc should be made to recite Lester Bangs final deathbed words of Kum Ba Ya Yippe Kye A Diddly diddly Do Tum Tum…Yep thats what the great Man said…his final words…a lifetime of championing obscure rock bands and this is what he said….And There lies The Paradox Beyond The Viel….Let Go MotherFuckers Everything Has a Time…A Season…Let Go…This is not Fantastic

  9. This stuff is great! Thanks BigO! Love it. These were the best times for music.Exile,Blood On The Tracks,Astral Weeks,Abbey Road,Zep II, Born To Run,The Doors,etc etc

    Oh yeah and of course Dark Side Of The Moon

    Could never see the punk thing created by wannabe musicians like bangs,considine,etc etc

    Fantastic stuff-keep it coming

  10. Actually Lester said ” diddy dum diddy do” just before he made the croak statement.
    The Band were better than Nob dylan`s backup quintet, the were the one and only yonge street HAWKS.

  11. bye the way on a serious note ASTRAL WEEKS is my life long obsessional Album know it word for word fuckin lived it but cmon guys aw this clinging to the past…jimbob dont label me with just ‘punkthing’ … i prefer ‘gutterpunkthing’ Bangs loved Coltraaaaane,Velvets,Beggars Era Stones and fucking Astral Weeks and ROD STEWART AND THE FACES

    By DROPKICK BARTH VADER SARGEY SHIRTLESS HAIRWIG STEVIO on Jan 22, 2013

  12. C`MON DROP/BARTH/VADER ET AL..EVERYONE BUT EVERYONE KNOWS VANS BEST WORK WAS HIS DUET WITH KERMIT THE FROG ON “BEIN` GREEN’..SHEESH…
    AS FOR BANGS, HE COULDN`T PLAY AND HE COULDN`T BARELY WRITE UNLESS HE HAD A BOTTLE OF COUGH SYRUP IN HIS GUT.

    By DROPKICKSARGE on Jan 22, 2013

  13. Van is a strange being indeed but there is something unexplainable when you watch him perform the nervous tics…the trance-like reveries…the hand movements…and so uncomfortable..its compelling to view. He only touches on this barely nowadays but its in him and sometimes its got to come out. Astral Weeks is amazing followed by Listen to The Lion,Independance Day, Veedon Fleece, Its Too Late To Stop Now, The Roxy Bootleg ,Half of Into The Music and thats it really - If you put a gun to even the most hardened fan they would surely agree hes never even touched the sides since…As for Bangs your only half right about the cough syrup

    By DROPKICK BARTH VADER SARGEY SHIRTLESS HAIRWIG STEVIO on Jan 22, 2013

  14. LISTEN TO THE LION IS GOLD.
    SO IS
    JACKIE WILSON SAID, BECAUSE NO ONE EVER MENTIONS JACKIE WILSON AND VAN TIPS HIS HAT, NICE TOUCH.
    COOL THING ABOUT VAN IS HIS MUSIC METAPHORS. HE SAYS ,”CROSS THE STREET FROM THE CATHEDRAL AT NOTRE DAME’ AND THEN YOU HEAR HUGE CHURCH PIPE ORGAN SWELLS, THEN HE SAYS “WHEN YOU WALK ,CROSS THE ROOM, MAKE MY HEART GO BOOM BOOM BOOM” AND THE DRUMMER SLAMS EVERYONE OF THOSE BOOM BOOM BOOMS. MUSIC METAPHOR MAGIC .
