I'm a huge Derek fan, but this is my least favorite of his albums. The album doesn't flow well, and there are too many Warren Haynes vocals. There are some great guitar moments, though.

Compared to other blues albums, this rocks. Compared to other DTB albums, this sucks.

BTW - The other review mentioned Derek's dad's band. Allman Brothers' drummer, Butch Trucks, is Derek's uncle, not his dad.

Derek is a rockin' electric slide player. The album really has an Allmans feel to it, Derek was clearly influenced by his father's band.

There is some great blues on this album -- I love the covers of Son House tunes "Preachin' Blues" and "Death Letter". However, this is not a pure blues album, as much of the stuff has more of a rock feel to it.

Don't overlook the special guest appearance by Warren Haynes, who puts in some creditable guitar and vocals on blues standards "Forty-Four", "Good Mornin' Little Schoolgirl" and "Death Letter").
