Consumer Guide Reviews:

Rick Danko [Arista, 1977]
A stronger album than I'd expect from the Band at this moment in history. Danko's solo debut includes a more sharply conceived city song than Robbie Robertson has ever come up with and a more sharply conceived coffee song than . . . well, the category is admittedly less extensive. Plus the classic "Small Town Talk," one of the decade's great love songs. Plus five of the decade's ordinary ones. B
