Tedeschi Trucks Band – Let Me Get By
Soul-blues power couple renew their vows to uphold ‘real’ music
Historically, the fastest way to liquidate a marriage is to place it under the stresses of a rock band: just ask John and Christine McVie. Curious, then, that as both a creative unit and romantic partnership, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks still have all the vigour of newlyweds.
Dubbed the “power-couple of the blues” by Joe Bonamassa back in issue five, they’ve since lived up to the billing, releasing a slam-dunk of a second album in 2013’s Made Up Mind and straddling the planet with a high-wire live show that makes everyone else seem small, puny and predictable by comparison.
