Currently on hiatus from his platinum-selling band The Wallflowers, Jakob Dylan recently released his first-ever solo album, Seeing Things.

Recorded with the help of uber-producer Rick Rubin, the songs from Seeing Things, filled with stark musings and optimistic threads, bring Dylan back to the core of his songwriting — voice and acoustic guitar — while intentionally making studio post-production invisible.

Recorded here in live performance on Mountain Stage, Dylan and his band The Gold Mountain Rebels masterfully convey the record's acoustic approach.

This segment originally ran July 27, 2008.
