Tedeschi Trucks Band - Layla revisited (Indie translucent green) 3LP
The cosmic connections are inescapable. On November 9th, 1970, Eric Clapton and his new band, Derek and the Dominos released what would become one of the most celebrated albums of all-time, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. As fate would have it, on that very day, a future musical prodigy named Susan Tedeschi was born. Some years later with Layla firmly entrenched among the pantheon of rock classics, avid Dominos fans Chris and Debbie Trucks paid homage to the band by naming their newborn son Derek. They played the album for Derek as bedtime music, sowing the seeds for the musical path that lay ahead. The rest as they say, is history. Derek and Susan would go on to form one of rock's most treasured partnerships, Tedeschi Trucks Band.
Now the Tedeschi Trucks Band is set to release Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN') featuring Trey Anastasio, a complete live performance recording of the seminal masterwork that has been integral to their musical foundation. Recorded Saturday night, August 24th, 2019 in Arrington, VA, Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN') captures TTB at their incendiary best. The band's collaboration with Phish's renowned guitarist/vocalist, Trey Anastasio, was one of the four-day music festival's most anticipated performances. Simply billed as Tedeschi Trucks Band featuring Trey Anastasio, fans were kept in the dark about their plans to perform the Layla album in its entirety until the moment the band took the stage. One listen and it's clear that their surprise performance-which also included close TTB collaborator, guitarist and songwriter, Doyle Bramhall II-meant something extra special to both the musicians and the astonished fans who were lucky to experience it.
In the new album's liner notes, Trucks recalled, "The joy of playing these songs that we all cut our teeth to...is something I will never forget. The show went so well, I was a little worried about going back and listening to the recordings. Sometimes things just don't hold up to your memory of it. But this did. Maybe even better."
