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)

You have to give to Dereck, he has some worlds best guitar intros.
Killer slide. Go Derek.
Smooth southern rock done right 👍
The now Tedschi Trucks band was the last concert I saw before the world closed - February 21 in Washington, DC. I do hope to see another one.
If they ever come to a venue near you just buy the tix and go.
If you're disappointed, let me know and I'll reimburse you. Just give me the stub.
Enjoy - this is what makes my world go 'round.
I loooooooooove  Derek Trucks band.{#Heartkiss}
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}
This had me from the first four bars...

Can I get an Amen?! Love this track.
And here I sit watching the HiDef Slide show with all these beautiful trucks but could not figure out the tie in.

I love the strong influence of Duanne Allman on Derek's style.

notice where obummer is looking ? shur ain't B.B.

 

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

Romeo, I envision a never-ending party in your hotel room. I'm jealous!
Might have to buy this disc.  There's enough good stuff on this to make it worth it.
Independance for the South
had to get up and dance for this one...
Nice positive lyrics
Sweet follow-up to the Soulful Strut. {#Notworthy}
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...
very sweet

Tedeschi Trucks Band ...?  No?

"this songs is good for ears".....:)



Derek channeling Duane...sweet inspiration. {#Bananajam}

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...

This band bores me to tears.
And I`m bawling right now .

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.

Love this tune, great.
Great tune.  Would fit in great with the soundtrack to the Commitments :)
{#Dancingbanana}{#Dancingbanana_2}This song inspires me to wiggle.

Oh. My. Gawd. Could it get any better?  That grin on Clapton's face... The music... The absolute joy...  Thanks, Calypsus_1, as always. You are the understated enlightener here.

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.

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.

If I remember correctly, that's what Derek Trucks was named after.  :)
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 that Robert Randolph on pedel steel guitar?

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.

Well Couldn't be my PC... cause it doesn't have windows on it...

Sweet Inspiration is not my fav track but all in all this a very good album

Bill, your signal is breaking up. I heard warbly bits and windows popups for a while. =)

thought this was Tom Jones at first

I love the cool opening organ riffs!  I felt like I was in the Gospel Tent at Jazz Fest!  I do love me some Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, too!
how unusual for a band to not be named for its vocalist...

on second thought, i do think he sings thru that guitar.

Man can sing, man can play, man is married to Susan Tedesci.....can I borrow his life for a week?
Fabulous cover. I'm starting to like this guy more and more. First, he's married to Susan Tedesci—pant, slobber, drool. Second, that slide of his just burns...{#Propeller}

I'm sure that is all Derek Trucks, he can smoke on that thing.

Meh

I like some of the tracks off of this CD, but this isn't one of them.
This is a Spooner Odlham / Dan Penn song, ca. 1967...


What an orignal sound? {#Wall}Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
