for Duane era ABB this classic LP and Eat A Peach is really all you need for the live stuff, amazingly their sets hardly ever changed a bit other than within the jams.
For me it's not always about the playing, but the story and circumstances behind it that can change the overall picture for me. This is like the whole Nils Lofgren playing piano on After the Goldrush instead of guitar...let's see how creative you are with an instrument that isn't your main thing...
You could ask Al Kooper about that. After showing up for a Bob Dylan session with his guitar and---in Kooper's own words---Mike Bloomfield
"got rid of me in a hurry," he snuck behind a Hammond organ (when the session's hired keyboard guy, Paul Griffin, moved to the piano)
and played it on "Like a Rolling Stone" . . . and most of the Highway 61 Revisited album, even though he'd never played an organ in his life
until then. And he turned out to be one helluvan organ player.
Not to mention Brian Jones (who'd pick up any instrument he thought might enhance a Rolling Stones recording whether or not he'd played
it before, teaching himself just enough quick enough to make it work) and Roy Wood (who played the classical instruments on the first
Electric Light Orchestra album simply by playing one or two notes at a time and dubbing since he wasn't that familiar with them).
Never heard those before. Another one along those lines is Neil Young getting Jack Nitzsche to play lap steel on Harvest, when Nitzsche was some film score composer/producer/keyboard player...
