Robbie Robertson stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to perform “Straight Down the Line,” a groovy rocker from How to Become Clairvoyant, his first album in 13 years. Backed up by Robert Randolph on pedal steel guitar and the Late Night house band the Roots, Robertson sang vivid lyrics about encountering blues men and gospel singers on a road trip through the South and ripped into a series of fluid, expressive guitar solos that filtered the melodic flourishes of the blues through his distinct personal style.
