Album Review: TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND RELEASES “LET ME GET BY”

This week’s list of new releases wasn’t an exceptionally long one, but there were still some good possibilities for a review. Buddy Miller, Karsh Kale and Sierra Hull, all have some quality albums out now, but my decision went to the Tedeschi Trucks Band. This band has increased its numbers to twelve members, counting Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, so their sound has gotten even fuller.

The album starts with Susan getting soulful on “Anyhow”, about a love that is, no matter what happens. The backing vocals are harmonious and Derek puts in some subtle, but important touches.

“Laugh About It” starts with a Grateful Deadish vibe, but the vocal timing is more reminiscent of The Band’s “Life Is A Carnival”. Some soulful blues on this cut about perseverance with a healthy helping of sass.

The funk shows its face on “Don’t Know What It Means” that contains some killer lyrics and a lot attitude. When most of the instrumentation drops-out and all that’s left is horns, clapping and the chorus, the song goes to the Big Easy before hitting up the funk to finish-out the tune.

“Right On Time” features Mike Mattison on lead vocals for this tune that sounds like it came from mixing a beaker of The Beach Boys with a flask of Gogol Bordello. It is quite entertaining and hard to classify, which makes it that much more intriguing.

The title track has the vibe of the Allman Brothers Band going epic, with some terrific organ work and a stellar groove. The sentiment is a testament to anyone, who has felt like the stagnant impede the movement of the motivated.

“Just As Strange” strikes right away with a more acoustic southern rock vibe. For the first time on this album, I heard the distinct similarities between Susan Tedeschi’s vocal style and Bonnie Raitt’s.

The strings and the soul of “Crying Over You/ Swamp Raga For Hozapfel, Lefebvre, Flute & Harmonium) are instantly captivating. Mike Mattison’s voice is exceptional and Derek fills in all the spaces like a veteran of twice his years.

“Hear Me” has a little more of a singer/songwriter style with a stripped down energy. The song speaks of a love that is just meant to be with lyrics like “Baby, you must remember, we’re one in a million here”.

The upbeat soul of “I Want More”, sounds a little like The Vandellas or Shirelles, with some rock and roll guitar to balance the whole thing out.

The band returns to the New Orleans flavor to start “In Every Heart”, but it is more of a soul ballad with Susan seeming somewhat subdued to finish out the album.

 

I purchased the Deluxe version of “Let Me Get By” which came with 8 bonus cuts, totaling over 40 minutes.

This opened with an alternate mix of “Hear Me”, which in my opinion is the better of the two versions. The strings felt like they brought the song together and the playing seemed more free, than the album cut.

The alternate mix of “In Every Heart” sounds pretty similar to the original, except for the wonderfully, lengthy guitar solo.

I am not sure if the original Deluxe Edition would have contained “Oh, You Pretty Things!” if it hadn’t been for David Bowie’s passing a couple of weeks ago, but it is here, so I must enjoy it. It is really well done, with Susan and the piano to begin, but adding the whole band throughout.

“Just As Strange” is represented with a short alternative instrumental mix, which is extremely good.

“Satie Groove” is a slide guitar heavy example of that place where world music and the blues meet. It is impressive and sounds like something that Playing For Change would have recorded.

A live version of “Laugh About It” from the Beacon Theatre lets the song shine more than the one on the album, with some fierce guitar playing.

The live cover of “I Pity The Fool” by Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland is an excellent choice and has some incredible moments, which include every second Trucks was soloing.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band also recorded themselves covering Derek & The Dominos “Keep On Growing” live at The Beacon. This was a terrific way to cap-off over an hour and a half of amazing roots music.

This is a great offering from the Tedeschi Trucks Band, even if some of the best cuts were the bonus tracks. There are definitely times when it is pleasantly obvious, that this album was a collaborative, mostly live effort, at the studio behind Susan and Derek’s house.  Susan has some explosive moments when she goes rogue vocally, especially on “Don’t Know What It Means”, and that environment lends itself to that kind of free-form approach to the music. While “Let Me Get By” is a tight album, I would only go with the Deluxe Edition, because a couple of the alternate mixes are better than the album version and the live tracks are fantastic. I would recommend this album to fans of Bonnier Raitt, Dustbowl Revival and Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

 

New Releases 1/29: TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND, BUDDY MILLER, SIERRA HULL & More…

  • Torae- “Entitled”
  • Walter Martin- “Arts & Leisure”

This is your list of new releases for this Friday, January 29th. It isn’t as long as last week’s, but it does have its high points. I will pick one of these albums to review and will post the review on Saturday. Check-back on Saturday to see which album I chose and to read my review. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!!

Both are all day events on Saturday, so unfortunately you can’t do both. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue name. For more amazing shows and festivals coming over the next few months check-out the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!!!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

Album Review: “KBCO: STUDIO C VOL. 26” RELEASED ON 12/06!!

On Satrurday morning, Boulder’s own ‘World Class Rock’ station, KBCO 97.3 fm, released the 26th installments of ‘Studio C’. Studio C is the stations intimate live setting, where many artists perform every year on their way through Colorado. These performances are often a little more stripped down than their normal appearances, which is one of the things that make these versions sought after. So, every year the station compiles various tracks from various artists and release it on the first Saturday of December. The pressings are limited and the proceeds go to the Boulder AIDs Project and Food Bank Of The Rockies, which is why droves of people line-up before daylight to get their CDs when they go on sale at 8 a.m. This year had KBCO teaming up with Whole Foods locations for the sale. With unseasonably warm temperatures Saturday morning, the crowds were out at the twenty participating locations with less layers than in years past. With eighteen tracks from artists ranging from Jake Bugg to The Fray, I was anxious to hear what this years compilation had to offer.

The Oh Hellos “Hello My Old Heart”- though this song was overplayed for quite awhile, since it hasn’t been on the air as much lately it is easier to listen to now. I love this more-rootsy feel and the spirited build at the end.

Passenger “Let Her Go”- I maybe liked this song for a second, before it saturated the radio with its mediocre music and generic sound. This version really doesn’t stray from the original, which makes me wonder why waste the space on the CD?

American Authors “Best Day Of My Life”- I will never be convinced that this band ever had any business on KBCO. This is a horrible song, with little to set it apart for other cheesy pop-rock on the radio. It seems like it got its airplay because of its stompy sound that is not very original anymore.

Tedeschi Trucks Band “Midnight In Harlem”- this is when Volume 26 gained my interest. This song is getting a fair amount of play in other avenues, but with Susan Tedeschi’s honest/soulful vocals and Derek Trucks’ timeless playing this one is made for continuous wear and tear.

 Iron & Wine “Tree By The River”- kind of has a Wings era Paul McCartney tune, just stripped down enough to work in the singer/songwriter vein.

Jake Bugg “Lightning Bolt”- I really like the Dylan-esque vibe of Jake, but this song has been so abused by radio and commercials that it has become hard to listen too. This version isn’t a far cry from the radio version, so it isn’t a must have.

Ingrid Michaelson “Girls Chase Boys”- I dig her vocal talents. She has a 70’s folk singer gone poppy in the 80’s and though the song is catchy, that is only because it is mostly Top 40, not “World Class Rock”.

David Gray “Back In The World Again”- David sings with conviction and gives himself over to the music. His sound is singer/songwriter if Coldplay was playing behind him. Not my favorite of all of his songs, but I really like this version.

Ed Sheeran “The A Team”- I didn’t like this one from the first time I heard it. Sounds like it could be a hundred other artists trying their hands at the folk singer genre, It is interesting how much time mainstream radio is spending on him, but how I haven’t heard his name on public radio, which is usually the vehicle for good singer/songwriter types.

St. Paul & The Broken Bones “Call Me”- I got a hold of their album, the day it was released, which was a couple months before I heard KBCO talk about them. However, I am impressed that they have gotten, at least, a little airplay by the station and that they are on “Studio C Volume 26”.

The Lumineers “Stubborn Love”- this song is good, despite how it has saturated the airwaves. This rendition, seems as though it could have been played on the streets of downtown Denver, because of its bare bones vibe not the quality.

Paolo Nutini “Let Me Down Easy”- This is a bluesy soul number, that makes me think of Terrence Trent D’arby if he were singing a Robert Cray tune.

The Fray “Break Your Plans”- I know they are Colorado boys, but I am not a huge fan. This song is not overplayed, which makes it much more listenable.

The Head & The Heart “Another Story”- I am fairly fond of their music and dig this song, especially since I’ve never heard it on the radio before.

Big Head Todd & The Monsters “Beautiful World”- one of the more rocking tunes I’ve heard on any volumes of “Studio C”. Not my favorite of all of their tunes, but it still makes for a nice cut for the compilation.

Lana Del Rey “Video Games”- this tune is quite moody and not a tune I care for or can relate to.

Ziggy Marley “I Don’t Wanna Live On Mars”- I am a big fan of Ziggy’s latest release, but this is the most poppy of the tracks on his album. This version is stripped down in the right ways to give it a more rootsy reggae feel.

Conor Oberst “Sausalito”- it has a singer/songwriter quality that meets something more rootsy like Poi Dog Pondering. This is another one that I can’t recall having heard on the radio, so it is more fun to hear, now.

Of the last few years, “KBCO: Studio C Volume 26” is one of the best. I have been collecting these compilations since the eleventh and have heard a few of the other CDs before and I get how treasured this series is. It was another fun, social experience standing with a bunch of other folks, who are obviously music fans, as well. Hope You Were There!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
