The biggest surprise followed when Dylan pulled out Dwight Yoakam’s “The Heart that You Own.” Larry played pedal steel and Bob had some good vocals. The song was performed well and Bob seemed really into it. ..

Dwight David Yoakam (born October 23, 1956) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, and actor, known for his pioneering style of country music. First becoming popular in the mid-1980s, Yoakam has recorded more than twenty albums and compilations, charted more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and sold more than 25 million records. He has recorded five Billboard #1 albums, twelve gold albums, and nine platinum albums, including the triple-platinum This Time.
1999 was a great year for Bob Dylan’s “Never Ending Tour”.
For all the splendours of earlier in the year , this last leg was the most consistently triumphant. By the time Dylan brought the year’s touring to an end, with an extended set on November the 20th, he had played 121 shows – the most in a single year of his entire career. It had been a very good year, the best since 1995.
~Andrew Muir (One More Night: Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Tour)
A lot of concerts from this tour is in circulation (both video & audio) and this concert is a great example from that last leg. Highlights include: One Too Many Mornings, This Wheel’s On Fire, Not Dark Yet & Not Fade Away.

If you don’t know by now
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I’ll be gone
You’re the reason I’m trav’lin’ on
Don’t think twice, it’s all right
Copa Room Sands Casino Atlantic City, New Jersey 27 February 1999 Early show
“At approximately 9:30, the houselights dimmed and Dylan and his band took the stage. Dylan was dressed in a white suit with thin black trim along the sides and his country squire black tie. After a quick discussion, they launched into Roving Gambler(acoustic) – The first tune of the night was the first surprise (it wouldn’t be the last) Dylan’s vocals were strong and true from the first note and he looked fit and trim and in good spirits.” …Read More (Review from Carsten Molt at Boblinks)
