The Derek Trucks Band: Roadsongs

Read "Roadsongs" reviewed by Doug Collette

A full-length extension of the previously issued EP, Already Live (Victor, 2009), and a more than worthy successor to Live At the Georgia Theatre (Sony Legacy, 2004), Roadsongs accurately summarizes the evolution of The Derek Trucks Band over its sixteen-year existence.

The Derek Trucks Band: Already Live (EP)

The development of the Derek Trucks Band has followed a progression that appears to be the perfect marketing plan.
