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.
