This record came as a real surprise to me. Derek Trucks was a young guitar prodigy who became a member of The Allman Brothers Band. Susan Tedeschi has a smokey, bluesy voice that can rival Bonnie Raitt's. Not surprisingly, this couple makes beautiful music together on their first album together, "Revelator". With an 11-piece band, they play with the vigor of a youngster and the smarts of a veteran. Then again, how many youngsters can do Joplinesque rockers like "Ball And Chain"? Or a classic blues stomper such as "Bound For Glory"? Topped off by a genuinely affection love ballad, "Love Has Something Else To Say". And anchoring it all in are Truck's remarkably fluid and catchy guitar solos. When times are bad, you almost always see a rise in guitar-based music and we're seeing it happen in this Great Recession, thanks to bands like this one. Although there isn't a single member of The Tedeschi-Trucks Band who is under 30 years old, their music is timeless enough to draw anyone into it.

With eleven members... it's either going to be a complete mess, or an amazing ensemble in which each instrument compliments each other. This record is even more than the latter.. every instrument works in tandem beautifully and the female vocals on the top of everything absolutely shine. It's got a feel of the 70's jazzy/bluesy tunes, a splash of 80's catchiness, a hint of 90's alternative, and a shiny 2000's production value. Overall it is a great album for EVERYONE to enjoy. My parents love it, my friends love it, and I love it!
