Pickup currently unavailable at Appleton Store

Layla Revisited (Live at Lockn') captures Tedeschi Trucks Band at their incendiary best, together with Phish's renowned guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio. Recorded on August 24, 2019, the performance of Derek and the Dominos' hallowed 1970 album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs in its entirety was kept secret until the moment the band took stage. Their appearance at the four-day event, billed only as Tedeschi Trucks Band featuring Trey Anastasio, was already highly anticipated, but none of their devotees knew the particular treat they were about to be part of. The performance made it clear what a special place the album has in their musical DNA; Derek Trucks, indeed, was named after the group. The show became a unique and unforgettable moment for the fans who were able to experience it. It also features their frequent collaborator Doyle Bramhall II on guitar.

"Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?", written by Eric Clapton with Bobby Whitlock, is extended into an epic eight-minute-plus excursion by TTB. Other highlights of the album include the guitar interplay between Trucks and Anastasio on "Keep on Growing," and Tedeschi's commanding work on "Have You Ever Loved a Woman." The recording also features Anastasio and Trucks' twin performance on the Jimi Hendrix cover "Little Wing" which was part of the original LP, as well as the iconic title track "Layla" itself. The album concludes, as did the 1970 release, with Trucks and Tedeschi's studio duet version of "Thorn Tree In The Garden." No group of musicians could pay homage to the iconic material better than this!
