4 months before rendering one of the grandest farewells in music history in “The Last Waltz”,The Band toured for the last time. A staple of their sets was always this remarkable song, delivered with heartbreak intensity by Rick Danko. Rick was the rich blood flow of this Band of mesmerizing gypsies.

I believe that the phrase ‘they don’t make ‘em like that anymore’ might be applicable when thinking about Linda’s career. Her diverse desires have always conjured indelible performances. During this 1984 incarnation she delivers the old school goods as accompanied by Sinatra’s fave, Mr. Riddle.

The blood of all contemporary ‘Rock’ music can be traced to the legacies of many marvels.. Lightning Hopkins was playing ‘Rock and Roll” before such a thing even existed. Presley made black culture acceptable to those thinking South. Jerry Lee invented stage madness. This LP bleeds early gold.
