Derek and Susan “It’s So Heavy”

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s new album Made Up Mind and was happy to come across this acoustic duo take of the album’s “It’s So Heavy” recorded on their bus.

Derek has called this song their tribute to Levon Helm and I can hear that. There is definitely a Band vibe, especially in the intro. It’s always a pleasure to hear them in this kind of stripped down and to watch their interactions.

The photo here is by Kirk West and will be one of almost 100 (!) of his great pictures featured in One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band. I’m so very excited to have these photos in the book. Kirk was also a superb photo editor and helped me find and secure great images by Twiggs Lyndon, Jim Marshall, Stephen Paley, Danny Clinch, Sidney Smith and others.

Enjoy the music:
