Truckers & Family

Saw the Drive by Truckers and Robert Randolph with his family last week. The Truckers were in usual southy tone and high on cherry whiskey, blasting with three six strings and a pedal steel. It was almost seeing a rehashed version of old school Lynard Skynard, seems they are really *too* inspired by this southern legends. The evidence is damn clear in Days of Graduation (from Southern Rock Opera –Act 1), a narration dedicated to the spirit of free bird. Also, check out Ronnie and Neil; a song primarily about meddles between Ronnie VanZant and Neil Young (southern man, alabama etc.).

As always, Robert Randolph was in a killing spree, far more than I saw last time. Together with his family, it’s a band to watch live. The setlist was awesome, the renditions of MJ (don’t stop ’til you get enough), Doobie Bros (jesus is just alright) and Led Zep (good times, bad times) were breathtaking and real foot tapping. Here is JIJA (07/16/06 – in flac, you need VLC to play this), GTBT (07/27/06) and encore Roll Up (07/27/06). Have Fun :)
