Did you drop your baby at the bottom of the blues?
Well, everybody's gotta suffer for all the things you choose
You say, I need you sweetie, but I ain't got the nerve
You can do what you please, but you get what you deserve

Don't know if they told ya, in the year that I come from
They were talkin' 'bout a revolution, talking about Vietnam
Well, you can't quite remember, baby ain't you heard?
You can do what you please, but you get what you deserve

Sooner or later, some kind of savior
Is gonna come down through the roof
Do me a favor, let me off easy when you do

I don't need no doctor, I don't need no truth
I'm goin' to California, baby I'm bulletproof
Just a strange believer, runnin' on the word
You can do what you please, but you get what you deserve

Get what you deserve

Great album.  I believe this was before he and Susan merged the 2 bands to become Tedeschi Trucks.  She does sing on it tho.  Saw them at a summer concert in Aurora, IL.  That stage was packed with so many musicians making a lot of JOYFUL noise.
 
You are correct on all accounts.  Mike Mattison is the lead singer here.  After the bands merged, not so much -- and I miss his bluesy growl.  Ms Tedeschi doesn't have that, and Mr Trucks never sings.  Ever.

Seen them three times in Atlanta, and they  certainly do bring the joy!

Dickey was right. These guys sound like Tribute bands
The guitar sound that makes you wanna learn the guitar.

The savior of R n R! Someone who knows how to play guitar!

Derek and his wife (Susan D) are freakin great but they don't enough.

Maybe it's in the genes.

 
Susan T for Tedeschi. There was a hilarious instance when they were guest on a BB King show and he introduced them as Mr & Mrs Tedeschi!
love this greasy slide guitar and dirty rhythm guitar...the tubes in that amp are pretty roasted! so good
Thank you, I did deserve that ass-shakin' bit of DT, the louder the better too!!!
Nice.
Derek is truly amazing! Thanks Derek, thanks Susan, and thanks Bill!

Everybody in my church loves this song...

Some one tell Derek to get off his ass and tour more! He is the best guitar player out there. And his wife (Susan Tedeshi) is a helluva singer and babe.

This guys makes it look so easy and he's a very unassuming.

Hey RP, you are on a groove....keep it up.

Hey romeo, let's not get ahead of ourselves here.  I haven't heard the next generation of an Allman Brothers type band yet.  This might be OK but it is not it.

This singer reminds me of the one on Kenny Wayne Shepard's debut CD

I love fine music - all kinds, incl. "Americana" (tzzz...)
What I do not like is freaks with a beard pretending the
Sixtees are to arrive soon!

DEREK's FUCK BAND - I repeat myself!

From Jersey, you risk life and limb with that feeling.
To each his own... I know I'm in the minority, so all you fans out there... enjoy.
I'll be enjoying "The Derek Trucks Band" a whole lot more than this...
Here you go, Bob! Apparently, Bill does read these comments.



In the future, this song will be a classic...  now, it is awesome...

Speak for yourself, buddy.  I love this stuff and social security's a long way off.  Good music has no age limit!  Doesn't mean you have to like it, but it also doesn't mean you can't like it.

Please allow me to kick your sorry ass, Stingray. I love you, in my way - but there are times (like this one) when I seriously think you need to get back on your medication. I mean, really - if you like being considered a troll, that's your business, but I wonder if your care-giver would be equally understanding.

And by the way - chewing through those leather restraints will damage your teeth, and you'll need them for gritting next time you hear a Derek Trucks song. Just sayin'... {#Mrgreen}
I've liked almost everything I've heard on this album...maybe it's time to pick it up.

Excellent!

Kind of a rocking version of Emerson's essay on Compensation.

The message sounds a bit like Retribution Theology to me.  I'll try to keep my feet off my soapbox (I can go on a bit), but it's kind of a trigger for me.  That whole "My Name is Earl" white-bread version of karma (a misapplied word) where you get what's coming to you in this life is a load of crap.  I can prove it any way you like it.  Rationally, emotionally, theologically — or if you're the fire-breathing type I can do it with scripture.  If you're not Christian, pick a scripture, and I'll prove it with that one.  You don't have to take my word for it though.  Google it.

Some philosophers, many great thinkers, have asserted this as the proof for heaven, or for reincarnation (like with actual Karma).

Me, I dunno about that.  Seems like a solution looking for a problem. 

 
There's an awful lot of truth in what you say, but...dude, it's just a blues belter along the lines of, "What goes 'round, comes 'round." Try to relax, okay?

My favorite album right now................can you still say album (although I did see this in vinyl recently)
I saw Derek in Tallahassee FL night club when he was about 14 years old. He rocked the house down. Now that is what you call (under age playing)   {#Mrgreen}


This really is a cool song...

Yes... this is really, really good...

I'm such an idiot I had no idea who Mr. Trucks was until recently. Now I can identify his guitar in just a few licks. Dig this groove...
