Tedeschi Trucks Band has been on a roll this summer, capitalizing on their Wheels of Soul tour to collaborate with some very special guests on a nightly basis. With North Mississippi Allstars and Los Lobos performing at each show as support, members of both bands – including Luther Dickinson, David Hidalgo and more – continue to find a home within the magic of Tedeschi Trucks Band. Last night’s stop at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, GA took that to a new level, as even more special guests joined in the fray.The first was the legendary Col. Bruce Hampton, who came out for a cover of the blues standard “Spoonful” with Luther Dickinson. Dickinson stayed on stage, and lent his hand to “Leaving Trunk” and “Midnight In Harlem.” Perhaps the biggest surprise was the appearance of Jimmy Herring, as the Widespread Panic guitarist linked up with Tedeschi Trucks for a version of Doyle Bramhall’s song, “I Want More.” The crowd was in utter appreciation of the musical fusion, and the guest appearances weren’t over! David Hidalgo, Cody Dickinson, and Steve Berlin all added their talents to “The Storm” to close the set. Luther Dickinson also rejoined one last time, adding some guitar to the fitting choice cover of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends.”With all of that love from the music community, this was surely a great musical experience. Fortunately we can relive it from home, as taper Dillon Fries has provided a full audio recording of the set. Tune in below and enjoy!Setlist: Tedeschi Trucks Band at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, Alpharetta, GA – 7/23/16Keep On Growing, Don’t Know What It Means > The Letter, Isn’t It A Pity?, Laugh About It, Spoonful*, Leaving Trunk**, Midnight In Harlem**, I Want More***, I Pity The Fool, The Storm****Encore: Never Gonna Let You Go, With A Little Help From My Friends**Notes:* Col.

It is well-known that Grateful Dead leader and guitarist Jerry Garcia was a bluegrass aficionado before forming what went on to become arguably the most important band in American history. Prior to becoming the music icon, Garcia cut his teeth with a group called the Hart Valley Drifters.The band consisted of good friend Robert Hunter, who penned many lyrics for the Grateful Dead, Ken Frankel, and David Nelson, who would later form the New Riders of the Purple Sage. According to the Wall Street Journal, the bluegrass trio would record a session at Stanford University for the radio show “Folk Time.” The full recording, which was originally taped in 1962, was rediscovered in 2008, and will receive a proper release.The album, aptly titled Folk Time, will feature tracks such as “Cripple Creek,” “Nine Pound Hammer,” “Pig In A Pen,” and “Sitting On Top Of The World,” which released last week. The Stanley Brothers song “Think Of What You’ve Done,” came out today, and can be heard below. The full album is due out November 11 on Round Records/ATO.[via The Wall Street Journal]
Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux has revealed plans for the newest installment in his archival series! The new Dave’s Picks Vol. 21 will highlight a beloved era in the Dead’s career, spotlighting the band’s performance on April 2, 1973 at Boston Garden.In announcing the new release, Lemieux called the show a “truly perfectly-played example of the excellence that defined 1973 Grateful Dead concerts.” It’s no surprise that a mid-1973 performance would be featured to kick off the 2017 installment of Dave’s Picks, as the year is known to be one of the best for the Grateful Dead. The band emerged strongly after the loss of founding keyboardist Pigpen, finding their groove with Keith and Donna Godchaux on the road. They toured harder than ever and amassed quite a following in those days, one that remains to this day.The 4/2/73 performance opens with songs like “Promised Land” and “Deal,” and features lengthy versions of jams like “Playin’ In The Band,” “Here Comes Sunshine” and “Eyes Of The World.” You can get a taste from the taper recording in the Archive.org player below.For more information on the new Dave’s Picks release and 2017 subscriptions, head here.
