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.
