Tedeschi Trucks Band Cover Derek and the Dominos on CBS This Morning


Tedeschi Trucks Band marked the release of their live album Layla revisited (Live at Lockn ‘) performing three songs from Derek and the Dominos for CBS this morningSaturday sessions.

On stage from a New Haven, Connecticut’s Westville Music Bowl, Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks and the company covered “Bell Bottom Blues”, “Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad?” and (in front of an audience) “Key to the Highway” by Layla and other matching love songs; Tedeschi Truck Group Layla revisited is a live performance of a full album from that classic LP – starring Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Bobby Whitlock and more – recorded live at the Lock’n Festival in August 2019, with guests like Trey Anastasio.


As Tedeschi and Trucks previously noted, the pair has several ties to Layla and other matching love songs: The album was released on Susan Tedeschi’s birthday in November 1970, and Trucks are both named after Derek and the Dominos and are a former member of the Allman Brothers Band.

“By the time I started playing guitar, the sound of Duane Allman’s slide was almost an obsession,” Trucks said in a statement. “Her play on Layla is always one of the highlights for me. The wit, the joy, the recklessness and inevitability of it. My dad would play this record for me and my brother to put us to sleep and burn it more into my DNA. “
