Biography

The Derek Trucks Band
Roadsongs

“I’m sitting on top of the world,” goes the age-old blues lyric -- and it’s a sentiment that perfectly applies to the career of the 30-year old Derek Trucks. With his cherry-red SG Gibson guitar in hand, a glass slide on his left ring finger, he enjoys a reputation that is blues-rock solid.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Two discs,48,58 minutes each approximately. The sound is very crisp and clean,with an almost "you are there" feel. The discs are slipped, bare, into a tri-fold cardboard holder, which has some interesting color photos inside, along with a pertinent quote from Eric Clapton about being on the road constantly. The booklet lists the song titles, and lengths. There's a short written piece by singer Mike Mattison on his first concert experience as a member of the band, playing live,and how blues music is the foundation of THE DEREK TRUCKS BAND. The remainder of the booklet is taken up with color photos of members of the band.

With this new release, the DEREK TRUCKS BAND proves that they are one of few bands that can deliver great live versions from their previous, bluesy, studio release "Already Free", combined with their take on a (lengthy) jazz classic "Afro Blue", the well known "Anyday" (DEREK AND THE DOMINOS), and the old blues warhorse "Key To The Highway" (among others), and inject them with their own sound. Songs like "Down In The Flood" (Dylan), "Days Is Almost Gone", and "Down Don't Bother Me", for example, are injected with the excitement of a live recording in front of an appreciative audience. Trucks and his band are capable of playing in virtually any genre of music they choose-from blues, gospel, rock, r&b, country, to world music, all combined into one broad style-and it's all here.

On this live set Trucks and his band (which range in age from their 20's to their 40's) show they have the skill, confidence, and depth to assimilate many styles of music and take that music (and the listener) in virtually any direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done, gentlemen June 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Let's be honest: "Already Free" was severely underwhelming to many DTB fans. I am not one of them, because I enjoy that album exactly for what it is -- good music, good friends, good family. Trucks doesn't do a lot of soaring on that album (nor did he need to), and he let a lot of other things shine.

When they announced the release of "Roadsongs," my spine started to tingle again. Could it even begin to compare to "Live At Georgia Theatre" (capturing DTB just as singer Mike Mattison was coming into his own as the voice of the band)? Could it elevate to the standard established by "Songlines! Live" (putting a face on DTB with this DVD release)? This was my concern. What if they are now a laid-back band? What if Trucks is no longer interested in ripping every inch of every song apart?

No worries. "Roadsongs" delivers like you wouldn't believe.

As Mattison says in the liner notes, DTB is a band that makes its mark on the stage. From the outset, Trucks puts in flying solo after flying solo, never staying within any box ever presented to him. The band is tight and playing like it's just another night on stage -- and "just another night" means that they are delivering. The horn section adds depth and taste as well as a few solos in songs like "Afro Blue." DTB runs the gamut of their collection, with a focus on the songs from "Already Free"; of particular greatness are "Get What You Deserve" and "Down In the Flood." They go way back to "Afro Blue" from their album "Soul Serenade" as well as a couple of tunes from "Songlines."

As for the covers, we get what we wanted: "Key to the Highway" and "Anyday" are throw-backs to Derek and the Dominos that only DTB are capable of pulling off. It's almost unreal what this band does to these songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars DTB--GREAT CD--GREATER BAND June 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD
OK, this will be easy. The DTB has no bad CDs or DVDs. Roadsongs just adds to an already brilliant musical catalog. Enough said. Folks, this is the BEST band in the world and they have been for a few years now, if not more. If anyone thinks differently, they haven't caught the band live yet. A suggestion: when the DTB comes to your town, run, don't walk to get tickets. They are a LIVE band in the purest sense of the word. While their recorded material is great, it just doesn't do justice to their live shows. This is no image-band; there is no con game at their shows (I've seen them 9 times). JUST THE MUSIC !! Yes, Derek is a mind-blowing guitarist but trust me, Kofi, Mike, Rico, Todd & Count M'Butu are not far behind !! Buy this disk; buy anything from the DTB. You won't be disappointed. But go to a DTB show; then you'll understand.

Format:Audio CD
This double disc cd captures the Derek Trucks Band at their performance peak. This was recorded on April 8 & 9, 2010 at The Park West in Chicago, during their "Already Free" Tour. (This is where they recorded their live concert "Songlines Live" DVD back in 2006.) This seems to be their "Live at Filmore East" which was a classic live album for the early Allman Brothers Band. This double album cd, features songs from their Grammy Award Winning Album "Already Free". This double album cd features extended versions of their songs from the "Already Free" album, plus some Derek Trucks Band classics. This double live album includes some great, "improvised", "spontaneous", "jam" music. This is great, "joyful", "soulful", "jazzy", but mostly "bluesy" music, with some great guitar play from Derek Trucks, including some excellent slide guitar play.

The pamplet in the double disc package contains an essay of thoughts, observations, and insights into the music and the band, written by Mike Mattison, lead singer, and signed "Altanta, Georgia, February, 2010".

This double disc cd contains over 100 minutes of live music.

The band members are legendary for performing very well together, and that legacy continues in this double disc cd.

Derek Trucks is also a guitarist for the Allman Brothers Band. He is also a member of Eric Clapton's Band at times. He is the nephew of founding Allman Brothers Band member & drummer Butch Trucks. He is also the husband of Blues singer/guitarist, Susan Tedeschi.

This double album cd is full of excellent "slide guitar play" by Derek Trucks.

Mike Mattison is a great lead vocalist. He has a unique way, of blending his voice into the music performed by the band.
