|We’re pleased to bring you the world premiere of our new video, for “Darling Be Home Soon” off Tedeschi Trucks Band’s recent live album Everybody’s Talkin’. Written by John Sebastian of the Lovin Spoonful (one of Derek’s dad’s favorite bands), the track was famously covered by Joe Cocker’s group Mad Dogs & Englishmen, a group that remains a major inspiration for the 11-piece traveling musical circus that is TTB.
TTB’s version of “Darling Be Home Soon” is a wonderful showcase of Susan’s vocals soaring above the gentle swell of the band’s groove. Featuring a trumpet solo by Maurice Brown and a slow-building extended solo by Derek as the band brings it down to a whisper behind him, “Darling Be Home Soon” is easily one of the highlights of an album with no shortage of beautiful vocals and show-stopping solos.
We’re sharing the video with fans first, and we hope you’ll do us a favor and pass it along to a friend or two of your own. Thanks to all for their ongoing support of TTB and all their love forEverybody’s Talkin’.
