Jim James Welcomes Bob Weir, Eric Johnson at Sound Summit

Jim James hit the stage at Sound Summit in Mill Valley, CA for a set that included a number of covers and guest spots including Eric Johnson as well as Bob Weir, continuing their collaboration that started earlier in the week at Weir’s Sweetwater Music Hall.

James first brought out Johnson, a longtime collaborator, for his own Fruit Bats tune “Wild Honey” as well as Simon & Garfunkel’s “America.” Johnson then returned later on for My Morning Jacket’s “Wonderful (The Way I Feel),” a common duet song for James’ solo shows.

The final three songs found James collaborating with Weir on Daniel Lanois’ “The Maker,” which they played the previous night as well as the Dead’s “Brokedown Palace” and Buffalo Springfield’s anthem “For What It’s Worth.”

Later in the day, James returned the favor once again to sit in with Bob Weir and Phil Lesh during their set for a version of “Tennessee Jed” that included some lyrics from the 2014 “New Basement Tapes” project.
