Tedeschi Trucks Band premiered their new video for "Darling Be Home Soon" exclusively to fans yesterday. The track is off the recent live album, Everybody's Talkin'.
Written by John Sebastian of the Lovin' Spoonful (one of Derek's dad's favorite bands), the track was famously covered by Joe Cocker's group Mad Dogs & Englishmen, a group that remains a major inspiration for the 11-piece traveling musical circus that is TTB.
TTB's version of "Darling Be Home Soon" is a wonderful showcase of Susan's vocals soaring above the gentle swell of the band's groove. Featuring a trumpet solo by Maurice Brown and a slow-building extended solo by Derek as the band brings it down to a whisper behind him, "Darling Be Home Soon" is easily one of the highlights of an album with no shortage of beautiful vocals and show-stopping solos.
