>Rick Danko, Levon Helm & Paul Butterfield – Live at The Getaway, West Saugerties, NY 17 July 1985


The Getaway no longer exists.

West Saugerties is only JUST there, with a pretty patchy historical documentation

“There is evidence in West Saugerties of what appears to be an early 20th century logging industry”(!)

What is well-documented, though, is the concert on 17 July 1985, drifting around the interweb and stated to be at the “Getaway Inn”, although it’s certainly “The Getaway” a nightclub in Saugerties where Richard Manuel recorded “Whispering Pines“.

There are also a couple of wildly creative set-lists drifting around, as well (attached as a footnote for historical reference)

This appears to be it, though.

Walkin’ Blues
Mannish Boy
Let Me Ride in Your Automobile 
They’ll Take Everything You’ve Got
Danny Boy
Louisiana Blues
Getaway Inn
Willie and the Handjive
Crazy Mama

    Interesting- they all have the date wrong. It was March 17 not July- St Patricks Day. I was there- and why else would Danny Boy have been sung?
