One More Shot


“This Appleseed release reissues the wonderful album Jonas Fjeld, Eric Andersen, and the late Rick Danko recorded in 1991. . . . Highlights then and now are numerous: Danko singing Andersen’s gorgeous ‘Blue River’ and the Danko/Andersen composition ‘Driftin’ Away,’ to name but two. . . . The big story here, though, is the second CD, a 72-minute audience DAT tape of a July 20, 1991 appearance at the Molde International Jazz Festival in Norway. . .The sound is a bit raw, but the performances are wonderful. If you already own the studio album, I recommend you get the new reissue for the bonus disc and treat a friend to your old copy as a gift.”

“The results, both from the studio and the stage, show just how magical this trio could be. Alternately trading vocals, songwriting, harmonies and just about everything else, this is folk music as soul music, that is, just about the best that the human spirit can musically produce for us.”
Sound Waves

"The double-disc One More Shot includes a remastered version of Danko/Fjeld/Andersen's self-titled album from 1991 along with a newly available live performance from the same year. Upon its original release, Danko/Fjeld/Andersen quietly won much acclaim, most notably the 1992 Spellemans Pris, which is Norway's version of a Grammy. All three artists trade singing and songwriting duties over the course of the album's 12 tracks, and the mood is often gentle, one of melancholy and reflection. Of the standout moments, Rick Danko's rendition of Eric Andersen's ‘Blue River’ deserves recognition. The second disc of One More Shot features the trio's performance at the 1991 Molde International Jazz Festival . . . During the course of the 16-song performance, each of the three artists gets some time in the solo spotlight, and the trio revisits songs from their respective pasts as well as a few songs from Danko/Fjeld/Andersen. A small backing band joins the trio for the performance, which sounds intimate and stripped down. Though Danko/Fjeld/Andersen has been readily available, this live performance has not, which makes One More Shot the preferred choice over the studio album on its own. Besides the great live performance, it also features remastered sound quality and liner notes by Robert Palmer."

“One remastered reissue and one never-before-released concert, both from 1991. The amazing trio – a founder of The Band, a Scandinavian folk-blues legend and an American songwriting giant – created a unique kind of blue-eyed soul during their brief performing stint. It's all encapsulated here.”
Western Living
“Kindred spirits from different countries, Canada's Rick Danko, Norway's Jonas Fjeld, and America's Eric Andersen connect across all sorts of borders on these 1991 recordings. . . . On the studio sessions, the harmonies are richer than some of the song craft, with Danko's vocals at their soulful best on ‘Driftin' Away’ and Andersen's ‘Blue River.’ The live performance elicits an enthusiastic reception from the festival fans, with each of the three artists showcased solo before joining forces. Listening to Andersen's revival of ‘Hey Babe, Have You Been Cheatin’’ conjures 1960s-era Greenwich Village, where he was one of the first to survive the ‘new Dylan’ tag.”
