Blue River

Rick Danko
Year Released

This is one of those songs I absolutely love but can only return to once in a blue moon. It’s just too sad to listen to frequently. Danko is a Canadian legend, with the Band, and clearly in his own right. Here, in some 1991 talk show, he opens with a solo rendition of Stage Fright and follows with a short interview before diving into Blue River.

Rick is just such a skilled songwriter and emotional performer. In spite of the host’s subtle hostility, he really comes through as his genuine and prolific self.
