See Tedeschi Trucks Band + Trey Anastasio Cover Derek & The Dominos’ ‘Tell The Truth’ At LOCKN’
Audio of the ensemble's 'Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs' performance will be released later this month as 'Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN’).'
Tedeschi Trucks Band shared official video featuring their cover of Derek & Dominos’ “Tell The Truth” with special guests Trey Anastasio of Phish and Doyle Bramhall II from the 2019 LOCKN’ festival. “Tell The Truth” came within the ensemble’s performance of Derek & The Dominos’ 1970 triple-LP Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs as audio of the set will be released as Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN’) through Fantasy Records on July 16.
The 12-piece band teamed with Anastasio and Bramhall II for the special set on August 24, 2019 at the Arrington, Virginia-based festival. Doyle, Trey and the TTB played all of Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs with the exception of “Thorn Tree In The Garden.” Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks recorded “Thorn Tree In The Garden” in the studio for inclusion on Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN’). The vinyl installment of the release tacks on a rehearsal recording of “I Am Yours.”
“Tell The Truth” appears as the eighth track on both Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs and Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN’). Eric Clapton co-wrote the song with Derek & The Dominos’ band mate Bobby Whitlock. Susan Tedeschi and Doyle Bramhall II handle lead vocals on the version played at LOCKN’. Trucks and Anastasio engage in a riveting duel to bring “Tell The Truth” to a close.
