Just weeks before he became a member of Elvis Presley’s touring TCB Band in 1969, Jerry Scheff laid down rock-solid lines on this set of Bob Dylan classics recorded at an African-American church in Los Angeles. Scheff ’s thick Fender tone is high up in the mix on songs like “Lay Lady Lay” and “I Shall Be Released,” supporting and grooving the 27-piece choir, and it’s a revelation to hear how naturally Dylan’s tunes work in an old-school black gospel context.
