On Saturday night, fans at Arrington, VA’s LOCKN’ festival were once again treated to another night of music from the members of Tedeschi Trucks Band with special guest Trey Anastasio. After welcoming TTB’s Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi during his own set the night prior on Friday, Anastasio repaid the favor with a classic rock-inspired second set sit-in, which saw the band along with acclaimed blues guitarist Doyle Bramhall II deliver a debut cover performance of Derek and the Dominos‘ 1970 studio album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.
This particular album proved to be a perfect choice for the personnel on hand that night, with Derek and Trey manning Duane Allman and Eric Clapton‘s respective guitar parts from the album. The band opened the special second set with Anastasio and Bramhall II to deliver their full rendition of Derek and the Dominos’ well-known rock album in full, beginning with “I Looked Away”. The special set continued with “Bell Bottom Blues”, “Keep On Growing”, “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out”, “I Am Yours”, “Anyday”, and “Key to the Highway”.
After continuing with “Tell the Truth” and “Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad?”, the performance of Freddie King‘s “Have You Ever Loved a Woman” then saw Trucks ditch his trademark Gibson SG in exchange for his 1957 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop, similar to the guitar once owned by Duane Allman. The group brought the themed set to climax with a cover of The Jimi Hendrix Experience‘s “Little Wing” featuring Anastasio and TTB’s Alecia Chakour on lead vocals, followed by Chuck Willis‘ “It’s Too Late”. The set came to a thrilling end with the performance of “Layla”.
