Tedeschi Trucks Band Shares Intimate Dressing-Room Rendition Of “All My Friends”

first_imgAt the end of February and beginning of March, Tedeschi Trucks Band laid out a four-night, two-weekend residency at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. During their time there, the soulful twelve-piece recorded a special tribute to friends who’ve passed away with a beautiful cover of “All My Friends”. Originally penned by Scott Boyer, “All My Friends” first appeared on Cowboy‘s 1971 album, 5’ll Getcha Ten, later gaining even more fame with its appearance on Gregg Allman’s debut solo album, Laid Back, which was released in October of 1973.“All My Friends” was an appropriate choice for Tedeschi Trucks Band, who shared the video noting it was recorded with “memories of Gregg, Scott Boyer, and other dearly departed friends on their minds.” Tedeschi Trucks Band, as a major group within the extended and immediate Allman Brothers Band family, has felt the losses of musical icons heavily in the last few years. Gregg Allman, Col. Bruce Hampton, Butch Trucks all passed away last year, with Scott Boyer leaving this world in February of this year.Up until this February, Tedeschi Trucks Band had rarely played the Scott Boyer original. Following Boyer’s death on February 13th of this year, the group began reworking the song into their touring catalog, first playing it during their Valentine’s Day show at Red Bank, New Jersey’s Count Basie Theatre. The band would go onto play it three more times in February, with their last live performance of the cover falling on February 28th during a performance in Jackson, Mississippi.Tedeschi Trucks Band’s heartfelt and intimate backstage-rendition of “All My Friends” at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium was recorded as part of Shure‘s MOTIV Sessions, which features “Shure Artist Endorsers in unique locations recorded exclusively with MOTIV™ products and iOS devices.” You can take a listen to Tedeschi Trucks Band’s take on “All My Friends” below.last_img read more
