Wednesday’s concert ran like Martin Scorcese‘s celebrated 1978 documentary film, with highlights like Haynes’ soul reading of the Danko classic “It Makes No Difference” as well as Kathleen Edwards’ rendition of Neil Young’s “Helpless”. Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin, an alum of the original 1976 concert, replicated Muddy Waters’ evocative guitar playing and signature growl on “Mannish Boy”. He even went beyond the source material, introducing the Waters classic with an extended slide guitar solo, something he said he wished had happened at the actual concert.

Just like it did 46 years ago, the evening ended with a communal singalong of Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released” before The Band offered the final song of The Last Waltz with Marvin Gaye‘s “Don’t Do It”.
