Product Description

Product Description

Made Up Mind is the highly anticipated follow-up to Tedeschi Trucks Band’s 2011 debut Revelator and last year’s scorching live collection, Everybody’s Talkin’. Through unparalleled musicianship and a timeless, authentic sound, Made Up Mind proves that TTB is fast becoming a band for the ages.
Deemed a “masterpiece” by Rolling Stone Magazine, the band was honoured with a Grammy win for Best Blues Album for their debut album Revelator, as well as four Blues Music Awards and garnered major TV appearances including Conan and Letterman
TTB is known for their extraordinary family of musicians, and Made Up Mind continues that tradition as most tracks were penned by husband-and-wife Tedeschi and Trucks along with various friends and co-writers. The album was co-produced by multi-Grammy® winner Jim Scott (Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco) and Trucks, and engineered by Bobby Tis.
The raucous soul-rocker title track “Made Up Mind” demonstrates the full power of the band from the album's first notes. Throughout the course of the album it becomes increasingly apparent that Susan Tedeschi has evolved into one of the most dauntingly commanding vocalists in contemporary music, her serious lung power exploding on standout tracks such as "Misunderstood" and tender ballads “It’s So Heavy” and ‘Calling Out to You’.
Considered to be one of today’s leading guitarists, Derek Trucks was the youngest person to grace Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time list in 2012. He recently became one of the youngest recipients of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award as a longtime member of the Allman Brothers Band.

As much as I love Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi and have listened to both for years, I find this album a bit of a let-down. This is a Susan Tedeschi Album with Derek Trucks playing on it. They are really just re-working the same formulas that they used before and IMHO it could have been a lot more. Would have been great to have some vocals other than Susan's. What about the amazing Mike Mattinson? His name is on the album but you can't hear him.

And I have to say the flute in Idle Wind is not good, the song sounds like 'TTB plays the Carpenters' or something.

There are however lots of good bits on the album and the band is as talented as ever, I just find myself fast-forwarding through several songs. Hence only 3 stars.

Perhaps getting in bed with Sony wasn't a good idea...

Solid and exuberant follow-up to the Grammy-winning "Revelator" finds the TTB in fine form. It's the usual winning blend of soul, blues, gospel, Stax and southern rock all immaculately performed and produced, but at the same time perhaps an opportunity or two has been missed along the way.

With a number of highly talented vocalists on board, once again it's a shame that the likes of Saunders Sermons and Mike Mattison haven't been allowed more of a front-line role. Sermons has a brief cameo vocal on "Part Of Me" but, frustratingly, Mattison's most noticeable contribution seems to have been writing the sleevenotes for the CD booklet. Splendid though Susan Tedeschi's vocals are (yet again), one can't help but feel that the album would have benefited from having a track or two led by a male vocalist (viz. the stunning contrast of "Wade In The Water" on last year's live release). It seems such an obvious waste of talent.

On the plus side, it's a strong and exciting set although at times one still longs for a bit of the avant garde touch-of-the-unexpected that made The Derek Trucks band such an exciting listen. Still, "Part Of Me" sounds worthy of being an old classic from the motor city and may well be destined to become one. The title track is one of those infectious songs that you find yourself humming at odd times of the day and can't get out of your head, while "It's So Heavy" is Tedeschi's real power ballad on this album, a vocal tour de force.

At certain times there's a nagging feeling that Derek Trucks' playing might just be a little too carefully practised and restrained but all such thoughts are firmly blown away by a rip-roaring and incendiary performance on "The Storm" in which he pulls out all the stops.

Derek Trucks is almost certainly the greatest living slide guitarist, after producing some amazingly good albums with his own band he two years ago brought his wife Susan Tedeschi in and oh boy this is by far the best soul blues band there is. The first album Revelator won several awards and rave reviews. Following this with 2012's live double, again an incredible set with the band delivering an albuim that was diverse, some awesome playing and ST's superb soul based voice. Come 2013 and this new one and what a release it is. The quality of the songs is superb, the band hitting great grooves throughout, Derek Trucks just continues to up the anti as a player, just listen to the opening track the guitar cuts the rhythm gets into the groove before the vocals come in. Whether rockin' or pure soul songs, this album has it all. The band of eleven,yes eleven great musicians not only guitar and keys but a horn section as well. This is a band of real class, but one that's exiting and equally progressive at the same time. Tracks like 'Make Up Mind' and 'whiskey Legs' are rock blues and reaaly lift the rafters (get the next door neighbours to go out and turn it up )' 'Part Of Me' will be in the songs of the year come the fall. The closing 'Calling Out To You' is just Derek and Susan together with another cracker of a ballad song his guitar is so tasty here and her voice which I feel gets better with every release, is now one of the best around. All I will say is just don't miss tyhis wonderfully enjoyable set by a band that deserves success because they have vastly more true talent than many filling the airwaves these days, and this truly is an outstanding release.

It might seem a bit strange for me to say that this album contains some of the best guitar playing I have EVER heard, yet I have only given it 3 stars.

Having grown up listening to Duane, Dickey, Lowell George, Bonnie Raitt and persons of that ilk I am ready to concede that Derek Trucks is among the all-time greats. He "carries the torch" so to speak and it's probable that the best of his career is still in front of him. Some of the guitar breaks on this album are astonishing.

But then this isn't a Derek trucks album, it's a Tedeschi/Trucks album and here the difficulty lies. I respect Trucks too much to say anything negative at this point but what I WILL say, is that these are HUGE songs, and really need a singer with the projection and soul of an Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, or Joe Cocker. It would take a really great singer to "put these songs across".

Unfortunately what we have here is a very "straight" "middle of the road" type of Americana album. Hardly surprising, I suppose. But I guarantee that you will tire of this album very quickly.
