THE BEST BAND TO HIT BLUES IN YEARS !
on 5 August 2012
Derek Trucks is the best slide guitarist there is, he's had a fabulous band for some years now,in fact since his teens.Then he married Susan Tedeschi, one great female blues artist who also happens to play some pretty meab guitar.A couple of years ago they joined forces, produced 'Revelator' a studio album that won countless awards, now we get a double album recorded on their first tour.Tracks were chosen by the fans, and we have an absolute winner here. Some songs from the album but their takes on things like Ramsey Lewis's'wade I The Water', blues classic 'Rollin' and Tumblin' and John sebastion's 'Darling Be Hme Soon' really lift this album to new heights.From their oen album 'Midnight In Harlem'(best song in 2011 for my money) and 'Bound For Glory' just tear the tiles off in their absolute brilliance.Most of the songs are quite long, but how they develop them Susan Tedeschi's voice along with co vocalist Mike Matheson , the amazing horn section.This is not a small band but it's so tight,so full of some of the best musicians around today mark this album as utterly unmissable.Derek Trucks toured a few years ago with Eric Clapton's band and folk were asking 'Who is he', raving about his guitar playing,he also tours with The Allman Brothers Band, which is one of the world's greatest gigging and jam bands. So all that can be said here is this is an album that must nbe heard by a band if there are any rights should be filling arenas and stadiums around the world,who knows they soon could be.
