The Rick Danko video is from an edition of Soundstage, an Austin City Limits-type program produced by WTTW Ch. 11, the Chicago PBS affiliate. Rick’s brother Terry Danko was one of the members of the group. Rick did several tunes from his Arista album on the show. There are extended solos on many songs and each song is also presented in an extended version compared to the Arista album. Among them a very soulful and long version of “Sip the Wine”, slowly building to a climax. Rick is in top form, he dances and bounds across the stage in obvious delight.
