Not sure how many of you have heard of The Wood Brothers, but they just put out a great covers album. On it they cover ABB (Midnight Rider), Beatles (Fixing A Hole), and a couple DTB staples (Get Out My Life WOman, and Up Above My Head......not sure who either were written by). If you've never heard of The Wood Brothers, do yourself a favor and check out this album (or any of the previous albums). They are a rootsy/folk/blues duo, and one of my favorite bands right now (alongside DTB, Mule and ABB).

Listening to this, I can't help but to imagine what Derek Trucks would sound like in a setting like this....(a couple resonator guitars, and upright bass). Given the similarity in their choice of covers mentioned above (I've also heard them cover Chevrolet), I have to think it'd be a great collaboration.

The Wood Brothers are easily my favorite current thing going outside of the ABB-family of bands. Saw them for the first time live in April and they blew me away. Just guitar, vocals and upright bass. Great playing, great harmonies/vocals, and GREAT songs. If you get a chance to pick up any of their music, DO IT.
