7 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

In 1987, two '60s rock legends joined forces for a historic stadium tour, with the Grateful Dead serving as Bob Dylan's backing band. Dylan sounds energized by the band's gravitas, and the Dead, who had long covered Dylan's songs onstage, proved sympathetic partners. The drumming duo of Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann give Dylan some locomotion on the R&B-tinged "Gotta Serve Somebody," while Jerry Garcia's guitar solos alternate between lyrical poignancy on "Queen Jane Approximately" and frenetic fireballing on "All Along the Watchtower."
