The voice of Rick Danko, like Adam Duritz of Counting Crows, is definitely distinctive. I can dig its plaintive, earnest, heartfelt quality...

It's not quite that bad, else I'd have muted it from the start, but whilst the studio version of this song is passable, the live version leaves something to be desired. A singer in tune, for a start.

HMMM. I always thought that the difference between a professional musician and me was that they could sing/play on tune even when in front of an audience. This version does nothing for me. Ick.

Ouch! This is not good.
It  has to be Julie Driscoll and The Brian Auger Trinity or nothing.

They ARE in reruns, on the LOGO channel.  Thursday nights, and various times repeated through the week.  Sweetie Darling, you must watch!

p.s. and NEVER NEVER say a female folksinger sounds like Joni Mitchell or a band sounds Beatlesesque or some rock singer sounds like Robert Plant. i've had enough!!

I was listening to a Danko club show last night.  I miss him something fierce.  He used to play a lot of club shows around here when I first moved to Albany and I got to meet him a few times.  Very nice, sunny guy, you know.  Just loved to play live...and I loved hearing him play live.  I just miss him...a lot.

I think it's just the recording itself, which doesn't sound like it was taken from the board. If you listen to the remastered DVD, The Last Waltz, the sound is awesome!

I love the original raw version on the Basement Tapes with Bob Dylan and the Band. Serena Rider also does a pretty good version.
