  1. so glad I found a tracklist, although Ron is good about announcing what hes played during the show. Happy Traum I recognize just from his contributions to one of the best “best of” albums Bob Dylans volume 2. Didn’t he contribute to Only A Hobo on Another Self Portrait? I shall be released sounds just wonderful with his playing, as does Mighty Quinn
