The Derek Trucks Band put on a special show down in Atlanta, welcoming a slew of guests to the stage, including: Susan Tedeschi, Jeff Sipe, and Col. Bruce Hampton amongst others. This track, which comes off DTB’s 1998 album Out Of The Madness, features Jimmy Herring on additional guitar. The Trucks/Herring combination is one for the ages, I’ve seen these two go at it in Phil Lesh & Friends as well as the Allman Brothers Band. Derek and the band play tomorrow night at Skirball Center For The Performing Arts.
