Tedeschi Tracks Band are to release a live album set in July. Layla Revisited (Live At Lockin') was recorded on August 24, 2019 at the Lockin' Festival in Arrington, VA, during the second of two sets performed by the band.
The band's set was an unexpected run-through of Derek And The Dominos' classic album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, which was originally released on November 14 1970, the day Susan Tedeschi was born. The musicians were joined onstage by Phish mainman Trey Anastasio and guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, who's previously collaborated on several albums with Derek & The Dominos man Eric Clapton.
Derek Trucks, who was named after Clapton's band, plays a 1957 Gibson Goldtop guitar on the album, an instrument that's just one serial number away from the same model played on the original recording by the Allman Brothers Band's Duane Allman.
“By the time that I started playing guitar, the sound of Duane Allman’s slide was almost an obsession,” says Trucks. “His playing on Layla is still one of the high-water marks for me. The spirit, the joy, the recklessness, and the inevitability of it. My dad would play that record for me and my brother to fall asleep to and further sear it into my DNA."
The album, which ends with a studio version of Thorn Tree In The Garden recorded by Trucks and Tedeschi, will be released on CD, triple vinyl, and as high-quality 24-bit, 192kHz digital files. It's released on June 11, but is available to pre-order now.
The first track to be released from the album is Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad, below.
