Blood on the Tracks live: A footnote

Today’s Star Tribune carries a note by music critic Jon Bream on Wednesday’s “Blood on the Tracks” show at the Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis that we covered last week. Bream’s take approximates ours:

A performance by Bob Dylan’s uncredited 1974 Minneapolis sidemen put the emphasis on the musicianship, the songs and the spirit. The rhythm section of Bill Berg and Billy Peterson was superb; solos by mandolinist Peter Ostroushko and guest harmonica player Martin Devaney stood out, and Marc Percansky, a chip off the old Bob, provided perfect levity with flash cards of key lyrics to “Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts.” Best of show: Adam Levy’s blistering “Idiot Wind.”
