“Down in the Flood” available Nov 4

The new DTB single “Down in the Flood” will be available through iTunes and all major digital music providers Nov. 4, a little taste for those of you eagerly awaiting the new dTb studio album Already Free (due in stores Jan ‘09).

Already Free was self-produced by Derek at his new home studio in Jacksonville. In addition to the core members of the dTb, the album offers collaborations with a close circle of family and friends including Doyle Bramhall II, Oteil Burbridge, Susan Tedeschi, Duane Trucks and more. The album came to life organically in Derek's backyard as friends stopped by to write and rehearse in the new studio. Derek explained in a recent interview: “When we went in the studio originally it was just to write and kind of get comfortable in the space. It wasn’t to do a record, so there was no pressure. There were some times when everybody would go out to dinner and I would stay behind. If I got an idea, I would run into the control room, hit ‘play,’ then run out into the recording room and set up a mic. You’d hear this thing banging around and then this guitar part comes in. A lot of the album was completely done by the seat of our pants, and a lot of the sounds we got, it was just so in the moment.’”

Original material makes up a major part of this record, largely due to a luxury Derek isn’t used to: time off. His hectic schedule finally opened a window for Derek to write at home with band mates and friends. “Everyday I would get up, and me or Susan would drive our two kids to school,” Derek says. “I’d come back, have some coffee and then head to the studio and start messing around with a guitar and hope a song idea appeared. Somehow without fail, there was at least a song written every day, or some great cover idea that came to us and we recorded it. So there was a good three or four-week period where every day we were writing and recording a song. That was different for me.” In addition to the wealth of original material on Already Free there are some choice cover songs interpreted and revived as only the dTb can do, including the single being released in November. “Down in the Flood,” from Bob Dylan and the Band’s Basement Tapes, is a tune that may have more portent now than when Dylan wrote it in 1967. “That was one that was kind of an afterthought,” admits Derek. “We just went in and tracked it. I think it really turned out to be one of the most powerful songs on the album. Lyrically, it’s pretty timely. Crash on the levee, down in the flood, are significant post-Katrina. They are good metaphors, as there are in most Dylan tunes.”

So, two big memos-to-yourselves on November 4th: 1) Participate in democracy by casting your vote, and 2) check out “Down in the Flood” for some fresh dTb!

That's one of my favorite cuts off of that album. I don't how Derek does it, but he always seems to pick my favorite tunes to work out: "Get Out of My Life Woman", "Soul Serenade", Let's Go Get Stoned", etc. This is why I'm glad I didn't devote myself to music, I'd have a perfect cover in mind and Derek & co. would come along and do it way better than I could. Plus sitting back and letting them do it is a lot easier haha. Can't wait.

Played it live last night at the Strathmore and night before at the Avalon.

it was grrrrreat!
Beautiful cover, it's now 100% the dTb's.

Played with a capo on some old black and white guitar - I'm not a gear expert, wish I could tell you all what is is, but I can't

I have tickets to see him on the 29th of Novemeber as well as on November 1 and am looking foward to hopefully sampling some of the new material. I am also taking a buddy who has never sen Derek with the DTB but only saw him once with the ABB.

Played Freddie's Dead at the Avalon, so there's still hope!

I had this feeling that their shaking off residual Songlines and gearing up to present the new CD....even songs off Songlines were pretty differently played....

This song is an absolute Materpiece and a perfect way to hit the listener right between the eyes. I'll be interviewing Derek on hiss new record for the 60th issue of HTN - coming out before the Beacon next year. I have listened to it over and over since getting it from him. It's the best work the dTb has ever done!

Down in the flood was the opener last night in Roanoke.
Been played 3 nights in a row!

Crowd was a little too noisy to catch the subtlleness of the start of the tune last night, but it was all good....Derek even switched from that "mystery" (to me) black and white guitar to the old familiar SG to kick in the ending of the song.

Ahhh, Derek's band doing Dylan - I like. :-)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Derek Trucks Band Debuts New Single: Dylan's "Down in the Flood"

Already Free, the latest studio recording from the Derek Trucks Band
is set for January 2009 release. However, on November 4, folks will
get a taste of what is to follow with the release of the digital
single, "Down in the Flood." Bob Dylan and the Band originally
recorded the song as "Crash on The Levee (Down The Flood)" during the
1967 sessions at Big Pink, the house just outside Woodstock, New York.
As for Already Free, it was cut at Truck's home studio in
Jacksonville, Florida with Doyle Bramhall II, Oteil Burbridge, Susan
Tedeschi and Duane Trucks joining the sessions.

Last night in North Bethesda, MD, the DTB debuted "Down In The Flood."
This was one of a few tunes the group offered up for the first time,
including the title track from the new disc. Ron Holloway added sax to
a few songs as well, such as "Volunteered Slavery," "Get Out My Life"
and "Leavin' Trunk." This evening, the Derek Trucks Band will appear
in Roanoke, VA.

Jim, most likely it's an old Danelectro guitar... Sure wish I could have caught some of these recent shows.

Yes , in fact looks like 3 different Danelectros are being played.
It's that blcak (and white) one that I seem to remember having a different cutaway than a '56 or '59....I'll keep looking until I find it.

Or better yet, some one soon who knows more about this stuff will let us know what it is.

Also....has 3 vintage looking amps out there in addition to the Super Reverb....
