Jon Gutwillig Covers Bob Dylan, Jimmy Cliff, Temptations, Beatles with American Babies

American Babies got some help from the Disco Biscuits Jon “The Barber” Gutwillig last night during their set at the Brooklyn Bowl. The guitarist came out for the last part of the set for the last six songs of the set, which consisted of a few songs that the Jerry Garcia Band used to cover, as well as an American Babies original.

One of the group’s JGB tribute songs was Bob Dylan’s classic “Tangled Up in Blue,” marking the first time that American Babies have covered the song and the first time that Gutwillig has covered a Dylan tune in concert. The guitarist also stuck around for takes on Jimmy Cliff’s “Harder They Come,” the Grateful Dead’s “Deal,” The Temptations “The Way You Do The Thing You Do,” American Babies’ “Joeline” and The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence.” With the exception of “Joeline,” it was the first time that American Babies has played all those songs as well.

You can give last night’s “Tangled Up in Blue” a listen below.

So I am pretty sure Babsy goes with triple Baconators for Bosco shows to prevent nodding out the three shows they do a year. I heard at the Brooklyn Bowl sitin he was going with double quarter pounders. He had three during Dear Prudence. The question is, do double burgers turn Babsy into 2000 Babsy or just prevent the nods? Are the Baconators a new turn for Biscotti and Babsy?
