A Smoking ‘Shelter From the Storm’

This is a burning – and perhaps timely, given the weather forecast – version of “Shelter From the Storm” from Bob Dylan’s second Rolling Thunder Revue Tour (this one in 1976, from which the Hard Rain LP was derived).

It’s not too often that you see Zimmy playing slide guitar! He played slide on “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat” on Blonde on Blonde according the liner notes, but I don’t recall ever seeing him play slide live before – either on video or during the dozen-plus times I’ve seen him in concert.

And is that an old Airline guitar Dylan’s playing? It looks quite similar to the model more recently re-popularized by Jack White – in red, of course.

Nice headgear, too.

(A tip of the hat to my pal Jim McGaw for the heads up on this video.)
