EDITORS’ NOTES

The Allman Brothers’ next of kin Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi play the sort of loose and rootsy music—call it jam-rock if you must—that just sounds better in live settings than under studio dissection. But that’s just one reason why their 2012 live album Everybody’s Talkin’ sounds so easy on the ears. Tedeschi and Trucks walk you through their record collections with a solid roster of cover material. They open with the title track, penned by folk deity Fred Neil. Their reinvented version of the tune boogies on a sunflared, bellbottomed strut that most coffeehouse folkies never knew. Similarly, the old Underground Railroad spiritual “Bound for Glory” gets an incredible reworking, with a bluesy slide-guitar solo introducing the tune before the band comes in and turns it into a smoldering groove. The group's take on Stevie Wonder’s “Uptight” is perfectly funky.

mo' music! ,

simply special

Folks, this band is one of the most special bands to come around in a long long time. They will be with us for a very long time and be one of those historic bands, you know like The Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule, Black Crowes,Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, etc. I have been fortunate to see them live 2 times, one of which was at the Beacon which I still dream about. I will see them at The Beacon in September in the 8th row.....yes , i dream about that to. Live is the way to go and this GEM captures them brilliantly. Susan's voice is crisp and raspy, just stellar. Derek's guitar is perfectly set throughott each song, he is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, yet 0 ego!!. I love him. Oteil on bass is well....OTEIL, great bass lines, Mike Mattison on back vocals is like FANomenal, Kofi on the keys is mighty fine. Maurice, Kebbi and Suanders put together one of the finest horn sections of all time..... they are horny as hell!!!!, their solos will grab you. Tyler and J.J. take percussion to the highest level and Mark Rivers tightens up the back vocals so well. Each song is very special with amazing lead and back up vocals and jams that just will grab you and take you away. Dereks guitar is simply amazing. You need to check this one out it is a highest of recommends.

Chills

If anyone is reading this that has yet to buy, what are you waiting for? Seriously if you're really on the fence just download That Did It. If you don't have chills after the first first verse and chorus is complete check your pulse. I'm just talking about the vocals. Derek's guitar solo later on is just icing on the cake. Otherwise download the entire album immediately. You can thank me later.
