    Good deal. They will be a good opener. That being said the best TTB shows in my opinion are when they have no opener and do 2 long sets (usually an hour 1st set, 30 min break and then 90 min 2nd set) and are able to stretch out a bit more.

    • I am with KYFester 100%. That was something much more than a well done "tribute set," for reasons that resonate across the years emotionally in a personal way, not because of what it looks like on paper. I know what it did to me and it was way beyond a "good show."

        So, I went to Lockn Thursday and Friday but had some out of town non-music loving friends in town Saturday and Sunday, so passed on Saturday (and Sunday). I've made a lot of mistakes in my life, but this one? Wow, not sure I'll recover from my stupidity to have missed this set! But, at least I get to see it on the replay screen. Derek joining Trey's band on Friday was pretty great as well -- the two of them have a nice chemistry.

        • Definitely the best set of live music I've seen in a long time.

          • Wow. Intense set. Derek's slide on Layla gave me the chills. Channeling Duane !! Almost enjoyed it more than the original version of 'Layla and Other Love Songs'.

              Totally agree! Being there only added to it. Definitely the best Lockn' set since Mad Dogs & Englishmen, a few years ago. All the many collaborations throughout the fest were much more than sit-ins- they were well rehearsed shows. Something you just don't usually see elsewhere. It's what keeps me returning to Lockn' year after year. I will say that this is the second year in a row that Bob Weir showed he can't quite keep up any more, musically.

                Not a big Phish fan, but all credit to Trey- he was great all the way from his set with Khruangbin thru the TTB set. He was consistently on it and having great fun at all times. So fun to watch his face as he played between Derek and Susan, watching Susan in awe and then flipping to Derek as if to say, "did you see that?"

                  Subjective indeed, but my take does not come lightly, nor is purely recency bias. I'm 74. I'm fortunate enough to have grown up with rock & roll, and blessed to have heard all the greats through the decades, starting with the Founding Fathers. The Allmans are my favorite, and I heard them when Duane was still alive. I consider that Derek & Dominos album with him and Clapton The Great Guitar Album. (Heard D & D when touring after the album in Cincy. No Duane, who sat in only once or twice, given his commitment to ABB.) Again, personal taste, subjective. I also believe TTB to be the best band today, and among the greatest ever. So to hear those incredible musicians play that transcendent album, with reverence, with consummate skill and passion, and, thanks to horns and a female presence and just plain talent, take it to a higher plane than the iconic original, leads me to my belief. It's been a long while for this old fart to listen to a set of music essentially in tape loop for the last three days. The interaction of Derek Trucks and Trey Anastasio is as if they've playing together on the road for years. Not the case. Amazing symbiosis.

                  So, jjazznj, with all due respect, and acknowledging the subjectivity of musical taste, I must disagree. Not the last week. Not the last month. This is a set of music for all time.

                  • "Almost enjoyed it more than the original version of 'Layla and Other Love Songs'" Yes, there are many ways in which it is better, as seminal as the original album is.

                      Yes. In fact, so compelling has it been, I'm having lunch tomorrow with an old musician pal who feels similarly, to talk it through. (He also burned the sets on CD for me, so I promised him lunch was on me.)

                        I was not there but I have watched it twice on my big screen with the volume cranked up. I already downloaded a video version and an audio version which I have already made cds of. It was a very good recreation of a classic (and alltime favorite of mine) album from 1970. I have seen may sets of music over my lifetime, many with special guests that I would put above it be it Led Zep, The Dead, Allman Brothers, Rolling Stones, Queen, SpringsteeI, Bowie, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, The Band etc.... i loved it but it was a recreation plus I've seen TTB do some of those songs before, a few many times but not of course with Trey. But hey, it's all subjective!

                        The only part I was not crazy about was having Susan, who I am a huge fan of, sing some of the songs, especially Layla. It just did not work for me. Especially when you have Mike and Doyle there who both sing the Bobby Whitlock parts so well and Trey sang the Clapton parts pretty well. The one part we can ALL agree on is no one plays the Duane Allman parts better than Derek!

                        I love TTB(I've seen them around a dozen times since their first tour) but I just cannot put them in the same category as the alltime greats as they are not very original and in my opinion do too many covers although I love pretty much every one of them. Derek on the other hand is simply amazing. I really wish he would put out an album of a different style of music, more jazzy and experimental. Bassist Tim Lefebvre, who unfortunately left the band would have been a great person to make such an album with. His bass playing on that last Bowie album was amazing. Derek had stated that TTB really took off when he joined the band.

                            Yeah, me too. Thought something was amiss with my browser. His post must be caught in some sort of algorithm warning limbo.

                            • By the by, it sounds even better over my big stereo on the CDs my pal burned for me.
