Watch Tedeschi Trucks Band & Trey Anastasio Perform ‘Layla’ Live At LOCKN’
The official video arrives on the same day as the 'Layla Revisited (Live At LOCKN’)' live album.
Today, Tedeschi Trucks Band released Layla Revisited (Live At LOCKN’), a live album documenting their nearly complete performance of Derek & The Dominos’ Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs album with guest guitarists Trey Anastasio of Phish and Doyle Bramhall II at the 2019 LOCKN’ Festival. Official video featuring the ensemble’s version of title track “Layla” from the August 24, 2019 set in Arrington, Virginia has been shared in celebration of the new live album.
Layla Revisited (Live At LOCKN’) contains all 13 songs TTB played with Anastasio and Bramhall for their tribute to the album as well as a studio version of “Thorn Tree In The Garden.” Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks recorded in the studio. Derek & The Dominos’ original “Thorn Tree In The Garden” aired over the festival’s PA at the end of the historic set.
Eric Clapton wrote “Layla” with Jim Gordon for inclusion on Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs, the lone Derek & The Dominos studio album. The song was inspired in part by Clapton’s love for Pattie Boyd, who was married to George Harrison at the time.
Both Trey Anastasio and Derek Trucks took fierce solos on “Layla” at LOCKN’ with the latter utilizing a slide in replicating Duane Allman’s iconic licks. Susan Tedeschi handled lead vocals. The Tedeschi Trucks Band has yet to perform “Layla” again.
