Finally getting a chance to post on what a fantastic show Thursday nite at the Tower Theatre was. First off, I am not a big fan of the new record. I am one of those all Derek all the time guys. Can never get enough of his playing and I thought and still think that revelator is dominated by Susan. Was a big DTB fan and this departure for him especially after the record came out was a little dissapointing for me I will freely admit.
Well for all those doubters like myself who havent seen this band yet I have one word...Go. This band was on fire thursday. They have such a big sound that just does not transfer to a studio cd well enough. The band has just enough for everyone whether you like Susans vocals or a large band sound aka. Abb, or the multiple drummers or just like excellent musicians applying their craft. This show has everything for everyone.
Finally, I was probably more worried going in about Derek in a supporting role instead of being the main ingredient. Not the case. There was plenty of Derek to go round and his solo on anyday was just off this planet. Gave me chills. His role in this band reminds me of say, Clapton and his band. Eric lays back and lets the other players take their solos but the song is not complete until he puts his stamp on it. That is basically what goes on in a TTB show. I found myself anticipating his solos the way I would at a clapton show. The setlist was great. Once3again. something for everyone from soul to blues to motown. The setlist I imagine is in another thread but that was the finest anyday that ive heard in my life and ive heard many. Terrific
Finally my last point is that this band needs to put out a live record immediately. The difference between the live performance of this band and the record absolutely warrants it.I found myself aching for that sound on the ride home from the show and not having anything to put into the cd changer.

Good review, thank you. Not a fan of the new record either so it's interesting to hear that they come off better live.........not surprising, I've heard that from others as well.

I saw them live in April and again in August, and this band LIVE, is the real deal folks. Derek's playing is off the hook. the band has tightened up since April and while not having heard the studio album, I gotta agree with Rob0319 that they need a live album, and they need it now. His review is spot on, IMHO. And, you definitely know you've been to a Derek Trucks show when you leave...He is definitely having fun and channeling that through that SG, He leaves it all on the table. Go see them if you get a chance, I don't think you will be disappointed.

I do like the record but also think they come across better live! Any band that improvise live are better that way. A live recording would be much welcome but I bet they wait another album or two.

I thought this was about TTB covering a Monkees song, which would sort of be awesome.

But yeah, I'm coming around too.

Me too says the little kid

Took some tightning up by the band,but the whole sounds seems much more together in the parts of the 8/4 show,I think,from Atlanta......and Derek is off the charts,Susan doesn't have to scream over the music,her gtr. Playing is terrific,the horns weren't playing over each other and Derek as they seemed to be in earlier shows and overall a tighter sound....hope to see 'em soon....

Yeah I don't see them diving into a live album right away...but maybe they will.

Studio = studio. And that means redo of tracks & solos, overdubs, slick production, etc.

Live performance = the test of band. There are no second chances, etc.

I'll take a band that performs live at the top of the game. Great bands are better live than in the studio. There are many bands that can make a nice CD but can't live up to the sound or expectation on the stage.

TTB live = A+ and in the zone.

Not ready to switch jerseys just yet, but I did enjoy seeing them live. Still, too much Susan and not enough Derek for me....but I'll take it.

Thursday's Tower show was special. I hadn't seen TTB since the New Orleans Jazz Fest shows in April 2010. This was like night and day. I like the album ok, but this show was really something. Derek was very much showcased and he was running the show. The Blue Sky tease in Anyday was great.

I still have not been able to get on the Susan T. bandwagon yet, however I will be attending the 8/25 Chicago show, going with a good friend and hoping to run into some of the Chicago peach crowd. I like Derek and DTB alot, to Me Mike is just a stunning vocalist, so I am anticipating some great music and a good time...........Peace........joe...

I agree. I think her vocals are monotonous. Maybe it all comes together live.

Just thought that since I made a statement, I should at least follow up. Gotta say that the show was very enjoyable. Everyone on stage seemed to be havin' a blast and to Me that makes it more fun for the audience, obviously all are very talented musicians. I am not suddenly going to proclaim Myself Susan's biggest fan, but I would recommend seeing this band to Anyone and would see Them again Myself. I assume one of the reasons for Derek and Susan forming this band is to spend more time with each other and Their Family and it's kinda hard to fault Someone for that. Heard a lot of folks around Me saying They had come mainly to hear Susan sing, that They had heard Her husband played guitar, but knew no more than that, so maybe this will help spread the word about Derek a bit more.........Peace.......joe

Thanks for the update Joe. Took me awhile to warm up to them myself.

Interesting use of capitalization, BTW!

Thursday nights Chicago Theater show was smokin hot. Run don't walk to the show if they come to a venue near you. All I know is there was about 4000 people leaving that theater with huge smiles.

I don't know if either of you have seen Susan live. CDs or live recordings can't capture the power of her voice live.

The professionally shot show you are referring to (Bound for Glory, Derek on Duane's Goldtop, Oteil on Berry's Tractor bass) from Atlanta was from April 8th at Center Stage Theater. The dude who posted the video was from Austrailia, he posted the date as 8/4/11 instead of our way of 4/8/11. They were tight and fantastic in April in Atlanta, they were tight and fantastic again in July in Atlanta. Both shows were amazing with just a little bit of nod to the July show because of my preference for the setlist. Unfortunately they didn't allow taping at the April show because of the pro shot going on, and apparently there weren't any tapers at the July 30th show as I can't find a recording...very disappointed by that.

I love the album, enjoy them even more live. The Tedeschi Trucks Band gives me hope for the future for a band that plays w/ the spirit, intensity, and musicianship in the vein of the Allman Brothers.

Certainly. But the key words from my quote above are "...a band..." Obviously that includes Derek and Oteil. Love the Mule, particularly the original trio, but to me the Mule has never come from the same place as the Allman Brothers. Mule is much more in the vein of Cream, Led Zep, so on. Further, while I have greatly enjoyed many of the other bands that I have followed through the years, Panic, DTB, so on, none of them have ever come close to getting the emotional and spiritual reaction that I get from an Allman Brothers concert. At The Tedeschi Trucks Band shows in Atlanta in April and July they were real close to taking me to that "magical" place that only the Allman's reach...thus my statement.
