In the summer of 1984, Stan Szelest and Levon Helm played together again as members of the short-lived septet The Woodstock All-Stars. With Manuel’s death in 1986, Szelest was called back to The Band, playing live with them in 1990, and participating in rehearsals and writing for their new record deal with [[Sony Music Entertainment|CBS Records]]. However, he died of a [[heart attack]] in 1991 while in [[Woodstock, New York|Woodstock]] recording with [[Levon Helm]], [[Rick Danko]] and [[Garth Hudson]]. His piano playing can be heard on The Band’s album ”[[Jericho (album)|Jericho]]”, released in 1993, on “Blind Willie McTell” and “Atlantic City”. The album also features the song “Too Soon Gone”, co-written by Jules Shear after Szelest handed him over 16 bars of a melody, which sat around Jules’ Woodstock home. When Stan died, Jules was called by both Levon Helm and Rick Danko and was asked to finish the song as a tribute Stan; apparently Stan had begun the song as a tribute to the late [[Richard Manuel]]. The album is dedicated to Manuel and Szelest with the caption “Too Soon Gone” in the liner notes. Szelest was also in [[Lonnie Mack]]’s band during the 1980s, and can be heard on Mack’s albums ”Strike Like Lightning” and ”Attack of the Killer V”; he can also be seen on several videos playing in Mack’s band during that period.
