Danko/Fjeld/Anderson- All Creation
If the purpose of Endless Highway was to draw attention to the Band, the project seems to be succeeding. This out-of-print side project of the late Rick Danko is very compelling. "All Creation," written by Eric Anderson and Danko as a memorial to Richard Manuel, is one of my favorite songs. Danko's craggy croon just wipes me out. If I were to ever make a movie, I guarantee that that I'd have this song- complete with the voices of the Oslo Gospel Choir- play over the closing credits.
The news of Beyonce's recent gig makes me feel like a fourteen-year-old boy again.
Kansas City Click: Isn't it romantic? The vital rock of the Architects, the freak-out noise of Pixel Panda, and more senseless brutality lie in wait tonight at The Grand Emporium.
