At Dylan's Cafe Washington DC December 8, 1987
About this release
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 a solo Rick Danko performance at "Dylan's Cafe" in Washington on December 8th 1987. This double disc set contains both performances from that night and as such includes a number of tracks from the Band's catalogue including Stage Fright, The Weight and Acadian Driftwood. The set also features what was Rick Danko's sometime showpiece with the band Mystery Train. At the time of this recording Rick was still performing with the band and would continue to do so until his death in 1999. This recording however captures Rick Danko the solo musician and is a wonderful example of what Rick brought to the band as a performer and yet made him so special as a solo artist.
