Any fan of Trucks will want this recording, but also any fan of good music too. What I like about this guy and this band is their open and sincere and high approach to music and culture and us as listeners (shows in how they relate to the audience and how they price this DVD).

This recording is well if modestly done. Nothing flashy here, just 6 guys playing well together. I was a bit surprised to have the show start with a few short interviews introducing the band and their approach to the music. Then for the next 2+ hours we get the full uninterupted concert. And I loved the show! And I was also glad to have had the reminder of the intention behind it.

I'm a big fan of Trucks but was more impressed by the rest of the band as well, the varied selection of tunes, the skill they played and interplayed with, and the general way they approach their task. As Trucks says in the intro these guys play as it is their church, and that includes us and the collective intention of the best the world has to offer.

This is the way to approach music; from the sacred, with humility, playfulness, joy, inclusiveness, and the love of doing it right.

I'VE SEEN ALOT OF MUSIC LIVE, IN MY 58 PLUS YEARS ON THIS PLANET BUT NEVER HAVE I WITNESSED THE KIND OF SLIDE PLAYING THAT DEREK TRUCKS DOES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS KID IS OFF THE CHARTS. I THOUGHT HE WAS OUTSTANDING WITH THE ALLMAN BROTHERS "LIVE AT THE BEACON" DVD JAMMING NOTE FOR NOTE WITH THE LEGENDARY WARREN HAYNES BUT THE PLAYING ON THIS DVD IS WAY ABOVE THAT. A GREAT SUPPORTING CAST ROUNDS OUT A INCREDIBLE 2 HOUR SET. THE FILMING IS TOP NOTCH. I OWN OVER 250 CONCERT DVD'S AND THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST. SUPPORT THIS MAN AND HIS BAND AND BUY THIS DVD TODAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before I bought this DVD, all I knew about Derek Trucks is that he did some second generation work with the Allman Brothers Band that helped bring that band back into the realm of my musical interests. I hadn't even thought about him lately until I spotted this DVD on sale at an area book/music store. The price was great, so I thought I'd give it a shot.
What a band! This DVD is astounding! If you like a little funk and soul, stirred with some Southern Rock, and shaken with a generous shot of the blues and a dash of world music, then you are bound to like Songlines Live. I can't recall the last time I saw a music DVD where the band is so tight and the music so fluid as it it here (Well, maybe Boz Scaggs Greatest Hits Live).
Some of the vocals are great and some I didn't care for, but I was never disappointed when Trucks and his band cut loose. My favorite here is the band's rendition of Key to the Highway. If you are familiar with Derek and the Dominoes' version (Eric Clapton's band), well Derek Trucks and his band just put them to shame. Trucks' play on that will make you forget you ever heard Clapton's version.
This is one DVD that's going to get a lot of play at my house. Take a couple of hours out of your day, put Songlines Live on, and get ready for a real musical thrill! The low price should make your decision to own this an easy one.

I had been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this DVD in my mailbox since I read that it was being recorded. It does not disappoint. It is an excellent representation of where Derek Trucks is as a musician and an clues the viewer in on why being part of a band is more important to his creative process than any solo/star turn could ever be. In this DVD the viewer can see the continuing collaboraive process at work.

The song selection is first rate. The band opens with Joyful Noise, the title track from the record that preceded songlines. They play 20 songs including much of the Songlines record (unfortunately no version of This Sky, but you can't have everything). Also included are blistering versions of two songs closely related to Derek and the Dominoes, Key to the Highway and Anyday. The former is a clinic in how to construct a guitar solo and shows the differece in approach between Derek Trucks and most players. Instead of attacking the solo and leaving it all in the first chorus, he starts slowly and builds to a climax. Anyday, on of my favorite Clapton/Allman performances cooks with passion and technical excellence.

As for the video feed, the visual effect is stunning. The colors are vivid, and one catches some of the subtle interplay between musicians. I went back and made the logical comparison between this disc and the Allman Brothers Band's One Way Out, Live at the Beacon Theatre, and frankly the video is much clearer and more appealing (though I prefer the ABB musically).

The bonus features are quite nice, though I would have liked more. A long piece about the nature of being on the road with the DTB and the approach to the music was informative and lots of fun.

This is a very well done DVD. The concert is well shot, the band are playng good and the sound is very good. The mix is very democratic with all instruments represented well. This is truly a band performance, where you can tell they are listening to each other.

The documentaries are very well done and give a nice insight into what makes Derek and the other musicians tick.

Very enjoyable.
