I have physically (not electronically) removed the suspect drive from the computer - it is now laying upside down on the workbench next to the computer with the cables still connected.  I've re-issued the command, and as of 5:42 pm it has started.

root at RCH-SERVER:/# ddrescue --max-retries=3 /dev/sdb /dev/sda resclog1
