Video Premiere: Blackberry Smoke with Bob Weir “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo”

February 3, 2017

As we reported earlier in the week, Blackberry Smoke with Bob Weir: An Evening at TRI, has been released today. The performance was captured at Weir’s TRI studios with director Justin Kreutzmann and the material spans the career of both Weir and Blackberry Smoke. Looking back on the experience, Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr tells Relix, “I don’t know if anyone was sure about what might happen, if we would just jam or if we would hit it off. Nobody was making assumptions. But everybody was so gracious and Bob was so cool. It was an incredible experience. As it turns out, nothing was off-limits, which, that was great. We got there in the morning and we set up in that amazing studio and we played music all day, for like 12 hours. Then we stayed another day and went in and did it again and played more songs and more of our material.”

Today we premiere the version of “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo” that appears on the DVD (which is available here). The complete tracklisting appears below the video, along with Blackberry Smoke’s upcoming tour dates.
