Various Artists: Tangled up in Blues
Songs of Bob Dylan - This Ain't No Tribute
Dylan tribute album, with The Band doing a wonderful newly recorded version of "One Too Many Mornings", with special guest Derek Trucks. The line-up is Rick - vocal/bass, Levon - drums/harmonica. Garth - Hammond B3 organ, Derek Trucks-slide guitar, Jim Weider-guitar, Richard Bell-electric piano, Randy Ciarlante-congas.
The liner notes mention that One Too Many Mornings "is a song The Band played with Dylan at all 47 concerts they played together in 1966". Rick is doing his best Danko-ised Dylan vocal, Levon's harmonica weaves it's way in and out of the entire song, Garth's B3 sounds straight out of 1965/66, and Derek Trucks' slide guitar is a nice touch.
See Peter Viney's article for a discussion of the 1966 Dylan/Hawks version and the 1999 Band version of "One Too Many Mornings".
