Joan Osborne released an album filled with Bob Dylan covers last year and is hitting the road with an all-star band including Jackie Greene, Amy Helm, Robert Randolph among others. The shows are dubbed Dylanology and include two full sets of Bob Dylan covers. Yes!
Joan kicked off the evening with a rocking “Quinn the Eskimo” and treated the Highline Ballroom to 17 more Bob Dylan classics. The highlight of the show in my opinion was the hair-raising encore of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.” Jackie and Joan make such a great pair!
Joan and her crew have a couple more US dates before heading across the pond for the European leg of the Dylanology tour.
Quinn the eskimo
Don’t think twice
You ain’t going nowhere
Tonight I’ll be staying here with you
You go your way and I’ll go mine
Takes a lot to laugh
Rainy day women
Masters of war
Buckets of rain
Meet me in the morning
Not dark yet
All along the watchtower
Knockin’ on heavens door
Thanks to Mike Buzzeo and Frank D’Auria for the recording.
