There were a lot of exciting things happening at the AmericanaramA Festival of Music concert in Hoboken earlier tonight.
First of all, according to Bob Links, Charlie Sexton is back as lead guitarist is Bob Dylan’s band, at least for tonight. In addition, J. Geils Band vocalist Peter Wolf, who used to hang out with Dylan in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s, joined Dylan’s band, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, for another cover of The Band’s “The Weight.”
Not to be outdone, Wilco was joined by Mott The Hoople’s Ian Hunter, James Mastro of Hoboken’s Bongos, and Warren Hayes during their set, according to posts on Facebook by Andrew Klewan and others.
Haynes played slide guitar on “Feed Of Man” about halfway through the set, while the finale featured Hunter on “California Stars,” Mott’s “I Wish I Was Your Mother,” and the Mott/Bowie classic, “All The Young Dudes.” For all the musicians joining in on the last three songs, see the set list below.
