Like a old soul reborn, Bob brought his rhythm and rhyme to the Pearl at the Palms in last Friday night. Opening the show was , who brought some familiar Dead tunes and was a nice filler. The show got into hyper drive when suddenly appeared mid-set for Wilson’s set taking the stage 30 minutes earlier than planned. And Bobby’s encompassed songs from the usual catalog, originals and a few surprise (see below).

Starting it all came “The Never Stopped,” ending with “Sugar Magnolia/.” It was one of the best solo shows I have ever seen. The first set was nicely scattered with a of “Blackbird” and “Easy to Slip,” Bobby’s solo tune. Second set was all Jonathan and Bobby together with a nice rendition of “Mission in the Rain” taking turns between verses. Bobby was in classic form and reached back into relics for a little “Red Rooster,” too (nice touch). “Ramble on Rose” featured Wilson on vocals. Second set killer was “Bird Song” with a two-minute “So What” intro (John Coltrane/ classic) before ripping into a 17 minute “Bird Song.” Nice job, Bobby…visit us a little more often in ! For a great audience recording check out this show on The Archive (recorded by HClayton).
