I know it's been out a couple of months now, but the newest Derek Trucks Band cd, Already Free, is just an awsome collection of music, from beginning to end! If they don't get a grammy for this one, they should just stop giving them out. I know that Todd Smallie is no secret around here, but his grooves on this album just kill me. I wasn't that much of a fan of the DTB's world music sound, but this blues and soul based set is different. One beautiful tune with Susan Tedeschi singing, co-written by Warren Haynes and Derek, and the Doyle Bramhall II tunes are bonuses. Its still the main cd in my car. Ok, I'm off to practice some of Smallie's lines.
