Audio | Derek Trucks Bonnaroo Superjam

Update 6/18 9 a.m. PT: Video of the near three-hour set has now emerged:

On Friday night Derek Trucks presented a Superjam at Bonnaroo that featured a ridiculous lineup including Chaka Khan, Ben Folds, Willie Weeks, Susan Tedeschi, Taj Mahal, Eric Krasno, Adam Deitch and Nigel Hall, among others. The ensemble presented an impressive array of covers throughout the set such as The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby," "Keep On Growing" by Derek & The Dominos, "Kissing My Love" by Bill Withers, Otis Redding's "I Can't Turn You Loose," Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" and "What Is And What Should Never Be" by Led Zeppelin.
