Alan, Colin and I are aiming for O'Neills by 4:30 to meet up before going over and booking in at the Grantley. Both Colin and I are upstairs in the unreserved Level 1 seating, so I think we'll both be leaving the pub early(ish) to get a decent seat. Alan's taking his chances in the mosh pit downstairs!. We'll be back in O'Neill's after the gig for a wee nightcap.

Is O'Neils near the venue?I have already met Colin(a great guy) but I would like to meet everybody else who posts here,I am also downstairs and will be setting off to the venue nice and early so as to get front row between Derek and Susan (I hope).I will be the one in the ABB tee shirt if you want to say hello.

Hi Folks,

Tomorrow morning at Waverley Station in Edinburgh Lynn & I will take custody of Alan Sinclair with the intention of delivering him safely to the correct authorities in London. His beer intake will be monitored and careful checks made of his emotional state as we approach England. Once in the capital, he will be handed over to Jim & Colin who have promised to administer to his needs and accompany him to the Tedeschi Trucks show. We will check up on his pre & post gig progress at O'Neills and make sure he is correctly medicated.

Look forward to meeting up with all of you.

Seriously,

Shuggie.

Hi Darren, ONeils is a couple of doors down from the Empire. The Grantley is over the road. I will be getting into London about 1-ish, so should be at the hotel about 2. Hope to meet up with you all in the boozer before and after.

What a great show!

Robert Randolph was the perfect opener, warming up the audience in 45 minutes but not upstaging the headliners.

That's the third time I've seen them in London, after The Borderline and Bush Hall. Cousin Lenesha, who was a powerhouse on vocals last time, was replaced by a lightweight white girl who was off stage as much as on. Otherwise, just great leaving me wanting more.

As for TTB, I loved it! Great to just sit back and let the music wash over you. Each member was terrific and having obvious fun. Steve Winwood seemed to be nodding along approviingly! Lots of highlights but, oddly, a lot of them came early in the set so it tailed off a little, imo. I thought Uptight was a poor song choice.

Susan seems to divide opinion - my companion didn't like her voice - but I thought she played a blinder! She provides a focal point which DTB lacked. I loved DTB but this is a different band playing different music and I can't see the point in comparing them musically.

For my money, I would much rather listen to this band than the ABB right now - I've heard enough versions of One Way Out, Statesboro Blues etc. They are contemporary and inventive - just enough jazz tinges to keep those who enjoy that side of Derek and Oteil wanting more.

Looking forward to seeing WHB next week to see how they shape up!

Good to see some of the troops again after a long "hiatus" and to meet some new ones! Hope to spend more time before GAF and WHB.

This week is the first time I can say I've missed the big city. Enjoy the next two gigs chaps.

Tedeschi Trucks in London last night were absolutely awesome, what a brilliant band and Robert Randolph and the Family Band were super too, but most of all it was great to catch up with all my fellow British Peach Heads, it's been too long guys

Enjoy Warren and Gregg

That was a good eve, and really nice to see you all - feels like it's been a while ... I guess it has been. It's funny that Dez Trucks has started coming to our pre gig gatherings now
I liked the gig - although I didn't have that "wow" feeling that i used to get after a DTB show - I guess it's still a pretty new unit. And like Gordon I thought ..."what was that cover all about?" I left for a comfort break when they started playing that!

The sound (upstairs) was vastly improved since i was last there too - the new higher speakers make a lot of difference.


Well, see you all later on
Thanks for the disks Colin

You are very welcome Dave ...

See you all later for the Gregg gig at the Barbican ...

Pre-show drinks at "The Trader" ... pub in Whitecross Street (No 142-146) about a 5 minute walk from the venue ...

I'm aiming to be in the pub for 4.00, hoping to see the start of the Murray - Nadal match.

I will probably have a spare ticket if anyone needs one.

Just to add my tuppence-worth - it was a great night at TTB. Derek smoked, and Susan sang her heart out, and although I do have reservations about her singing, you can't ask for any more than that.

Wondering how I'll feel about tonight's show as I'm not that keen on Low Country Blues, mainly because of the production. But seeing as it's Gregg's band and not T-Bone's hired help, I'm sure it will be pretty damn good.

Then on to Warren on Tuesday...........

And Barry's (Hippy69) Snakeoil Rattlers were pretty good last night despite the venue being a bit of a dive and soundman nearing a hearing test!

Dive? That's one of the better places we play! You need to experience the 12 Bar Club.

I'd rate the Shepherds Bush show as one of the best i've ever been to. Thought everything was top notch, from the venue itself to the sound in the level 1 balcony (directly behind hippy69 ). Thought i might miss the extended stuff from Derek such as MFT or Greensleeves but i can honestly say i enjoyed every single track. The highlight for me was the outro of Anyday, i thought Derek channelled something else on this one, just sublime beauty. Started off low and sweet and full of melody and gradually rose in intensity until he was wailing with the full band again, an outstanding ten minutes or so. Thought Susan sang great, i like her voice, but think she can occasionally drift into full throttle screaming when i'd prefer to hear the band laying down a nice groove, but she was spot on on the night. Kofi is great as always, although i'd have loved to hear a bit of flute, i'm pretty sure it was lay on top of his keyboards. Oteil was just a ball of energy and looked to be having the time of his life (even popped into O'Neills after for a jar or two). The whole band were superb. Apparently there were at least four tapers, so hopefully a nice recording will surface soon. And i get the pleasure to see it all again in Paris on Thursday, and i cannot wait.
The album is very good, the live show is several levels above.

Gregg was superb last night despite his F-ups in Statesboro Blues - you'd think he'd know it by now! He's in great voice and was positively chatty with the crowd.

And when he wheeled out this, I was a very happy bunny

love that song, both the original and Gregg's version.

He came in at the wrong time in Floating Bridge too, and there was a time Scott Sharrard had to extend a solo when he didn't come in on cue (perhaps that was Statesboro too).

It was a shame because his voice was strong. The fluffs seemed to happen at the end of the set when he maybe tired.

Enjoyed all the playing though. Not the most exciting or original set but it's always good to see a Brother over this side. The reception was very generous, to say the least!

in Gregg's defence he was having terrible trouble with his guitar amp... kept cutting out so he had Daved scurrying round trying to fix it... probably put him off a bit
