ABOUT THE LOST MOZART'S PERFORMANCE
"Finding this long lost, self recorded performance in my closet full of CD's was a gold mine. Granted, it's a bootleg, raw recording...complete with the sounds of Lake Austin...an occasional motor boat passing by, and cicadas keeping time with our music. Despite the raw recording, our playing was breath taking! Mozart's was my premier venue for my acoustic singer songwriter performances in Austin. Nearly all of my songs were first played and tested at Mozart's, since 1999. This night was no different, as we tried out three new songs, that were never developed beyond this night.
"The weirdest thing about it to me was hearing the three 'new songs'...especially "Canyon" & "Real World", because I had literally forgotten all about them. It was like I was hearing songs I've never heard before...by me... for the first time...so remarkable."

OUT OF THE SILENCE (2000)
"The humanity displayed here is accessible to anyone who’s ever felt left of societies center. And the music is potent enough to work for those who simply want sweet melodies and memorable hooks."
GHOST STORIES (2002)
"With its Stevie Nicks/Belladonna album cover homage and its country-tinged pop songs ( the best of which include "Tangled," "Someone In Austin," "True Perspective," "Be Home Soon," "Christine," and "Telepathy" ) , Austin-based Daniel Link's Ghost Stories ( LOAM ) fulfills and expands on the promise of 2000's Out Of The Silence."
Windy City Times
COLOR OF RAIN (2005)
"Link is an accomplished tunesmith. But two other things stand out on "Color of Rain" - Link's resilient voice, which recalls Michael Stipe's at times and Big's arrangement of countless instruments and backup vocals"
BOOK OF SHADOWS (2012)
"Book of Shadows is polished, evoking the Wallflowers as much as Elvis Costello in a Southwest alt-rock kind of way.
