I need your sweet inspiration
I need you here on my mind every hour of the day
Without your sweet inspiration
The lonely hours of the night just don't go my way

A man in love needs sweet inspiration
And honey that's all I ask, that's all I ask from you
I gotta have sweet inspiration
You know there's just no telling what a satisfied man might do

If I'm out in the rain baby
In a bad situation
I just reach back in my mind to find
Sweet inspiration

Sweet, oh what a power
And I've got the power every hour in the day
I need your sweet inspiration
To go on livin' to keep on givin' this way

Sweet, sweet inspiration (repeat)

I would love to see these guys and Robert Randolph & the Family Band on the same ticket.
That's about as close Bill will get with a Xmas song outside of Dec 25.

Yes, because my car's CD player was on "song repeat" for the first two weeks I owned this album.  An excellent example of the southern boogie mixture of blues, soul, and gospel.
 

It's in their DNA.
Thanks, I needed this right about now.

RP, your music is wonderful to bake to, but it is sets like these that make me late to get on the road towards Thanksgiving (with the dessert, of course) {#Bounce}

So be it.
This tune makes me feel really good. {#Roflol}

Thanks for taking me to church this morning Rev. Bill.
 
And here I sit watching the HiDef Slide show with all these beautiful trucks but could not figure out the tie in.
{#Beat} 
I love the strong influence of Duanne Allman on Derek's style.

You gotta keep an eye on that B. B.!



In 2010, The Derek Trucks Band announced a hiatus, and Mike Mattison joined the new group, Tedeschi Trucks Band, as a backing vocalist and songwriter. One of his compositions, "Midnight In Harlem" - Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band (Live At The Crossroads Festival 2010) and appears on the dvd release of Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010.

"Oh wow this is incredible. Sometimes I forget that people are still making good music."    ronian12

"I was there at the Crossroads festival that day. What a fantastic music experience. With all the great names there, Tedeshi Trucks band was the biggest surprise for me. This song especially was just perfect during the early evening. Fantastic job! "     rickgsoldo

Nice positive lyrics
Sweet follow-up to the Soulful Strut. {#Notworthy}


I'll dance to this...

 
I hear some of the old Bonnie & Delaney influence.
Ho.......Hum!
Just. So. Damn. Good.



SUCH a good rendition of this song!  I have GOT to get this CD, and then bite the bullet and suffer through Susan Tedeschi's vocals to get to Trucks' guitar wizardry...


Love this song...

Yes, you're right... that's what it is now...  but you can still join that Derek Trucks Band community, I think...  I need to update and see what else is available now...  I agree with you about the song!!

Was it followed by the Subdudes when you wrote about this song? 'cuz "Sugar Pie" is playing right now...
 
 
No, but that's okay. Lizards rule.

About the only thing I can think of that would equal the easy grooving soul of this song is if it were covered by The Subdudes. Wouldn't it be the bomb to see the two of them in concert together? Even I'd come to Jesus—oh, wait...

A B3 with a Leslie cabinet! In the front window of many New Orleans Pawn shops, but rarely for sale. The owner will get it out of hock as-soon-as... If you like B3, check out NOLA's Davell Crawford's recording, B3 and Me.

Bill, great segue from Young-Holt Unlimited, showing the deep gospel roots of both Soul and Honky Tonk!

The intro sounds like what they play at the end of SNL where everyone is doing their group hug thing and waving to the proliteriate. 
a bit corny, isn't it?

A 6.5 for anything Derek Trucks? Criminal. The kid's amazing.
He's 30. That's not even a kid to grey haired 'ol me! But yeah, amazing.

New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, crowd of 25,000+ - great show. Alexandria, Louisiana Town Fest (or some other goofy name), maybe 200 people waiting for a rap act - great show.

Couldn't stop making music if he tried.





great song...  love it...

Nice catch. He DOES sound a little like the Welsh Elvis. And in this case, I don't think it's a bad thing.
 
Not nearly - pure southron blues!
(But TJ - the Welsh Elvis? really?)

I thought this was Billy Joel, sounds very much like him, but thought " there is no way RP would play him", and I was right.

Following Ben Harper and Bob Marley, it sure sounds like Songs of Praise.

Talking about "Derek"; it's got a bit of the Derek and the Dominoes feel to it, I think. Very lovely, pure swinger.
 

If I remember correctly, that's what Derek Trucks was named after.  :)


This is one sweet tune...


this reminds of abb. Yep, and this entire cd is one you will want to buy.
Tom Jones is back!
I get that Little Feat thang too
love this slide guitar 
WOW! I haven't heard one song that I don't like ...gotta get it!!............sold!
Ama-ZIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnggg just love that guitar and as someone has already commented the Spiritual slide is Just great for   the Neck Hairs to stand to attention. Incidentally, how may 'Air Guitars' are performed when this comes on ??  (~_^)
I hear some Little Feat in there as well - great backing vocals.  This tune grooves nicely.  Great production as well.  On my purchase list now...
Honkey tonk spiritual..

is it Sunday already?
Is that Robert Randolph on pedel steel guitar?

thought this was Tom Jones at first

 
That's pretty funny. Now that you mention it, I hear what you're talking about.

Hey, Tom! If you're reading this, get the Trucks Band to back you on your next record before some bozo does a mash-up!

{#Think}


Talking about "Derek"; it's got a bit of the Derek and the Dominoes feel to it, I think. Very lovely, pure swinger.
Decent piece.

Nice kind of a ``Little Feat`` feel to this — IMO.
