A new live album and video release from Tedeschi Trucks Band is great news no matter how you slice it. But the document of the September 9 show at The Fox Theatre in Oakland, CA, Live From The Fox, isn't just a front to back filmed concert.
While 12 cameras did capture the action on stage that night, we are also promised some behind-the-scenes footage at life on the road with this true family band during their West Coast fall swing.
Here are examples of both.
A pre-order period is available now in advance of the March 17 release date, and early buyers will be automatically entered to win TTB tickets and a meet and greet, a Derek Trucks signature Gibson guitar signed by Derek and Susan, and $1000 gift card and more.
A quick look at the tracklist, especially in comparioson the the band's setlist that night also raises some interesting questions.

The previously unreleased "Ali" is listed, but the setlist indicates "Bitches Brew" was performed during that time. Additionally, "Anyhow" has appears to have been re-ordered from the performance.
And covers like "Had To Cry Today" and the two song encore of "You Ain't Goin' Nowhwere" and "Space Captain", seem to have been excised from the release. Royalties -- or simply a desire to tilt the package to showcase the band's original work -- may have played a role, but Chris Robinson also lent a hand to the latter two songs. "Angel From Montgomery" and "Sugaree" also got the axe.
