Rick Danko and Richard Manuel were key members of
the legendary group of musicians The band. In addition to
being connected with Bob Dylan both recording a number
of albums with him and performing at many concerts The
Band also had a thriving career of their own. Opening their
account with the groundbreaking album Music From Big
Pink in 1968 The Band would go on to record a further
six studio albums before calling it a day for the first time in
late 1976 with a farewell performance at the Winterland
which was filmed and recorded and subsequently released
as The Last Waltz.
During the eighties the various members busied themselves
with sessions and albums of their own however they did
reform as The Band without Robbie Robertson in 1983
and also performed occasionally in various groupings.
This performance features Rick Danko and Richard Manuel
captured during the late performance at O'Tooles Bar in
Scranton PA on the 12th of December 1985(They also
performed there on the 1st of December). The set list on
this recording features the two artists in fine form throughout
and also features The Band classics, Unfaithful Servant,
King Harvest, and Chest Fever.
As a document of two legendary musicians this recording is an important one. It was also recroded less than three months before the sad and untimely death of Richard Manuel.
