EDITORS’ NOTES

Formerly known as a Soul Stew Revival, Tedeschi Trucks Band revamped their moniker to reveal that they are husband and wife Susan Tedeschi (guitarist/singer) and slide-guitar luminary Derek Trucks (who also fronts his own project and plays with the Allman Brothers Band). The duo built a home studio before assembling nine other musicians and recording 30 songs, boiling the best down to the tunes that comprise their 2011 debut. Revelator opens with “Come See About Me,” a Deep South-marinated groove-rocker peppered with Trucks’ trademark slides and a grinding Hammond B3 organ. Tedeschi’s soulful wailing makes for a perfect centerpiece to the song. Tedeschi Trucks Band forsakes excessive soloing, giving Tedeschi plenty of room to let her vocals soar. Check out the gospel-tinged “Ball and Chain” or the burning urgency of her voice on the sweltering “Until You Remember.”

mo' music! ,

fanominal, just fanominal!

had to purchase this from best buy with the TTB website coupon for $7.99.

This album is an absolute gem. It is music priceless and genius, one of the greatest albums i have ever heard. Revelator is oozing with soulful soul, passion, harmony, funk, rock n roll, greatness. Susan's voice is always great but it is amazing on this album, every song, everyone. Derek's guitar is perfectly placed and sings to you, he is pure greatness, just check out midnight in harlem, some of his finest work. Back vocals are special, and an incredible listen, and along with the horns just blew me a way. Amazing percussion and a hammond, keyboard, organ that will not quite, some of the finest work out there. The words to the songs are gripping, heartfelt and passionate, you can feel what went into writing them. This is a special band and one that will bring us amazing music and shows like their 1 or 2 degrees of separation which includes Derek Trucks Band, The Allman Brothers, Susan Tedeschi, Gov't Mule, Oteil Burbrige, Scrapomatic and then some. I am in love with this album and this band. Highest of high recommends. EnJoY!

Killer first studio album from Susan, Derek and Friends - great all the way through.

If "Until You Remember" doesn't make the hairs on back of your neck stand up, have your family call the coroner, u r officially dead.
