Speaking to Paste Magazine, bassist Dominic Suchyta, explained: “This project started when Bob Dylan acquired the lost Hank Williams songs. Essentially, the lyric sheets Hank died with in his briefcase. Jack is my oldest friend, we talk on occasion and he asked me to come down and record. Dylan had contacted him to see if he'd like to finish some of these tunes.”

The tune was recorded live in Blackbird Studios, Nashville. It seems that although the pair didn't record together during the session, Suchyta thinks it's only a matter of time before they get something down on tape.

"I wouldn't put it past either of them. They seem to be cut from the same cloth, sort of misplaced Midwestern brothers. I do know Jack has joined him on stage quite a bit and joined him for his XM radio show. When we were high school teenagers, we recorded quite a few Dylan tunes on our old 4-track reel machine. I remember having a nice version of Masters Of War on some cassette somewhere. Jack played drums and guitar, I played bass and guitar.”

The rest of Dylan's Hank-compadres remain shrouded in secrecy. Stay tuned to MOJO for the latest on Jack 'n' Bob.  In the meantime, here's a classic clip from D.A. Pennebaker's Don't Look Back.
