Rick Danko - Times Like These (Breeze Hill 2000)
It is still difficult to believe that Rick Danko left this
earth about a year ago. He's missed but, he leaves behind
a rich legacy. In addition to his recordings with The Band,
there is now "Times Like These", a collection of 10 solo work
recorded shortly before his death. Several of the songs on this cd
had been recorded with the intent of releasing an album to followup
"Live On Breeze Hill". Other material was added to complete this cd,
two of them live performances. The gorgeous title track and an amazing
cover of The Dead's "Ripple" are but two of the gems. Guest musicians
include longtime Band-mate Garth Hudson.
Danko has always had a voice well suited to introspective ballads, and the
material here - it's perfect. Times Like These is both a fitting tribute and
apt benediction for Danko.
