Bob Dylan – On This Day – February 16

Levon Helm, Bob Dylan & Rick Danko @ Lone Star Cafe, NYC – Feb 16, 1983

Historic event

Feb 16, 1964

Dylan takes his friends up to Central City [Denver], where he had spent a few weeks back in 1960. They then start the long trek toward San Francisco, where he is scheduled to perform on the 22nd. The night is spent in Grand Junction, CO.

Feb 16, 1983

Dylan attends Bonnie Koloc’s set at the Other End in New York then heads across town to the Lone Star Cafe where he joins Levon Helm and Rick Danko on stage during their scheduled set, providing backup vocals and guitar on “Your Cheatin” Heart,” “Willie and the Hand Jive,” “Blues Stay Away from Me,” “Ain’t No More Cane,” and “Going Down.” The whole performance is ragged, reflecting the impromptu nature of Dylan’s appearance.
