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.
