When Derek Trucks (of The Derek Trucks Band) and Susan Tedeschi (formerly of The Susan Tedeschi Band) met and married, it was more than a civil union. They decided to mesh their music - and their bands - together to create their first love child, The Revelator. In the process they found the perfect mix between Blues, Funk, Gospel and Rock, and The Revelator won a Grammy Award in 2011 for Best Blues Album.
Everybody's Talkin', named after the song Harry Nilsson made famous in the film 'Midnight Cowboy', is their second album and first live album: a collection of fan favorites, traditionals and covers from heroes such as Stevie Wonder, Elmore James, Joe Cocker and Bobby Bland, plus the unreleased track "Nobody's Free", all recorded during the supporting tour of their debut album.
Everybody's Talkin' is available as a limited edition of 1,000 individually numbered copies on transparent blue vinyl housed in a beautiful 3-panel gatefold sleeve.
Produced by Trucks, it includes live versions of some album tracks and six beautifully chosen covers; all its tunes are given extended, imaginatively arranged treatments. It's an unusual live record because its balance of sonic precision and stage-born kinetics is perfect - this band transitions seamlessly between R&B, blues, rock, gospel, and jazz. These performances never succumb to mere jam band clichés. On disc one, 'Midnight in Harlem' is introduced by a mini raga played as a slide solo by Trucks. The band enters gradually, and Tedeschi's soulful vocal carries them all the way in. (Tedeschi is revealed, song after song - far beyond her solo records or even Revelator - to be among the truly great singers in modern blues and rock; by turns graceful and grainy, her expression reaches the spiritual in execution.)... Everybody's Talkin' is what every live album should be: an accurate, exciting reflection of a hot band playing full-throttle.
