Susan Tedeschi – Don’t Think Twice – 11/5/14 Santa Rosa, CA:
“When Bob Dylan saw Susan Tedeschi guest with Phil Lesh & Friends during a 1999 tour featuring the two acts, he was so impressed he invited Tedeschi and her band to open for him a few weeks later. Susan T. and her band wound up opening what turned out to be the final Bob Dylan gig of the millennium on November 20, 1999 at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, DE.
Not only did Tedeschi open for Bob on that fateful night, he wound up inviting her to sit on four songs during his performance. Susan was the Dylan band’s guest on “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry” and “Highway 61 Revisited” during Bob’s main set as well as versions of “Not Fade Away” and “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35″ in the encore.”
