The Grammy Award-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band release their historic, one-off live recording of the seminal Derek and the Dominos album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, performed in its entirety at LOCKN’ Festival in August 2019 alongside special guest, Trey Anastasio, and longtime collaborator, guitarist Doyle Bramhall II. Blazing with nonstop guitar riffs and Tedeschi’s searing and soulful vocals, the 14-piece ensemble’s reimagination of Duane Allman and Eric Clapton’s landmark release is a reminder of TTB’s live show genius and unparalleled musical alchemy.
Layla Revisited captures an unforgettable live experience by one of the few bands capable of taking on such seminal works, take a moment to listen here: https://found.ee/TTBLaylaRevisited
While “Tell The Truth” pays “pristine homage to the ragged boogie of the original” (Rolling Stone), tracks like “Key To The Highway” and “Layla” showcase Trucks’ “world-beating slide skills” (Guitar World) as he masterfully goes lick for lick with Anastasio and Bramhall II, every solo soaring to electrifying heights.

Released on November 9th, 1970 — Susan Tedeschi’s birth date — Derek & The Dominos Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs immortalized Allman and Clapton’s fiery musical chemistry and slide guitar prowess in a record so timeless, it inspired Chris and Debbie Trucks to name their son Derek some years later. Derek Trucks would go on to join The Allman Brothers Band and join Clapton’s band for a yearlong worldwide tour, further searing Layla’s spirit into his musical DNA. So deep is the connection between the music and its performers that the release feels almost preordained.
“By the time that I started playing guitar, the sound of Duane Allman’s slide [on Layla] was almost an obsession,” says Derek. “The spirit, the joy, the recklessness, and the inevitability of the record finds a way to pull you back in. And of course, being a part of their history was the honor of a lifetime.”
To complete this momentous release, Layla Revisited concludes with a history-making addition of its own: for the first time ever as a duo, Derek and Susan deliver an intimate, stripped-down studio version of “Thorn Tree In The Garden” with no additional accompaniment. Listen to the delicately sung remake HERE.
This Saturday, July 17th, CBS This Morning Saturday will feature a ripping performance of 3 of the tracks from Layla Revisited. Check your local listings.
