Ok, the intent of this thread was to state that Susan Tedeschi has yet to make a studio record that equals her magical LIVE intensity. Also, I noted I had some knockoff copies. I have conversed with Rowland in PMS and I have PROMISED to BUY those albums. GIVE ME SOME TIME and I WILL post what I can of the transactions. I am NOT made of money.


Also, I think THE WORLD of Susan Tedeschi, as an artist, a performer, a guitar player, a singer, a song writer, etc. I'll bet Susan is also a pretty fine mother, daughter, wife, citizen, etc. Please know that I think Susan is pretty NIFTY. And I guess it is my own NEGATIVE perpective of things that doomed this thread, plus regardless of who I like, various IDIOTS in the community will post to MOCK ME. If I make posts about Lynyrd Skynyrd, or Allen Collins, or Alison Krauss, then various folks will post as to how pathetic I am. OK, how about this, on Easter, I LOVE GOD. GOD IS WONDERFUL. Ok, mock that sentiment.

Susan's new album is titled - Hope and Desire

Personally, I think Wait For Me is an awesome album. I think the fact that she had Tom Dowd producing that record speaks for itself.

I recommend tracking down a copy of Susan's 12/31/05 set (double bill with the DTB). It was a tremendous night of music and Susan's set was absoutely terrific.

I still haven't picked up the latest yet, but it is on my short list. I really like "Wait For Me"; beautiful songs imo.

Susan isnt the only artist doing this type of music who isnt at her best in the studio. It seems to be both a blessing and a curse for this genre of music. It is a shame that she's not more succesful and not more widely known - I lurk on the Ryan Adams board, who are pretty insular (if its not Ryan, they really dont like it) and I've heard nothing but good things about Susan when she opened for Lucinda Williams.

On the other hand, as Shawn Mullins said "Aint it a blessing to do what you want to do." I think Susan is about as big as she wants to be.

I think at this point in Susan's career, she exactly where she wants to be, which is right now, raising her two children while still keeping her hand into her musical career. If Susan wanted to be more well-known she could certainly do the things "more touring, ect" to have a higher profile. Lord knows she has the talent. IMHO, Susan has purposely put herself on a "back burner" to raise her children and to allow her husband, Derek Trucks to pursue and enhance his career, both with his band, and with the Allman Brothers Band and to also pursue other opportunities, such as touring this summer with Eric Clapton. I also feel the day will come, probably when her children are school aged that Susan will take a more active role and start touring more and recording more and become more widely know. Indeed, I expect her to become "her generation's" Bonnie Raitt. I also feel that Derek will be very supportive and to give Susan her "chance in the sun" he'll limit his music commitments to just the dTb. Anyway, just my .02 cents.

Susan runs circles around anyone she is compared to. Bonnie Raitt doesn't even compare. If different management would more fully expose her, I'm all for it.

What a voice; what a performer!

The liner notes for the album "Wait For Me" indicate that --- the basic tracks for "Wait For Me", "Hampmotized", "In The Garden", "Till I Found You" and "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" were produced by Tom Dowd.

Exactly what work that entails I have no idea. But I think I can plainly state that Tom was the best in the business. In fact, in many ways, he was the only one able to do what he did because he was such a creative force and a true genius. So whatever work Tom contributed to, it is safe to say that it was a world class job. Actually, Tom's daughter used to drop in on this site every once in awhile, so if you can find her around she may have some more info about his connection to this record. Regardless, it's a great album.

But your point is well taken. It's really the nature of the improvisational music that these bands that we love choose to play. It's very very very difficult to capture that fire on a record. But if there was ever anyone who could do it, and do it RIGHT, it was Tom Dowd.

Ron,

Ryan Adams is a young, prolific artist in the alt/country scene. His former band was Whiskeytown. After their breakup, he went solo and has a pretty good album out called Heartbreaker, I think, don't quote me on that title.

I like his music pretty well, he has quite a following.... a large fan base. You either like him or you don't, there doesn't seem to be an inbetween. He has a strong musical influence...... ahem, Johnny Cash.

If you're familiar with Paul Westerberg, Ryan's music has similarities in style and lyrical composition. Ryan is a pretty darn good guitar player as well, imo.

Ryan is very prolific. He has released three CDs in the past year, one of which is a double. I was a fan of his when he was with Whiskeytown. He was a victim of the Next Big Thing syndrome when Heartbreaker came out, but IMHO he has lived up the hype. Not everthing he does is great, but he has written some GREAT tunes, particularly on the first Ryan Adams and the Cardinals double CD-Cold Roses? Can't remember the name right now.

He was also a member of Phil and Friends for a short period last year.

Libby, so glad to see that you're OK!

Oh, some may recognize Paul Westerberg if I mentioned his band, The Replacements.

Ryan Adams released a new album in December called 29 here's a link if anyone wants to listen to some tunes...

http://www.ryan-adams.com/29.html

bluenose, welcome to the ABB site, it's obvious you're a fan or you wouldn't be here. You'll find that alot of people here have very eclectic and diverse tastes in music. Dan seems a little grumpy tonight, it may have something to do with Hot Tuna's late date at Variety and the fact they're doing an electric show only, I dunno!

I enjoy Ryan Adams' music, however, I don't lurk his message board.

I havent heard any of his own stuff, but he has played with Phil Lesh recently.
Phil seems to think highly of him, so I guess he cant be that bad.

I think of Joan Osborne's career as another that has been somewhat derailed, though both she and Susan are excellent artists. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that the business isn't receptive to women who don't fit the Brittney Spears mode. Can't get into a lot right now but for both Susan and Joan, I find the song writing can be considered weak after the first cd or two. Don't know why that is but it is a commonality they have too.

Anyway here is an article that discuss Hope and Desire. I think Susan needed to put off the cd she wanted to make because of motherhood and that Derek's career is taking off. Anyway, hope you find some of it informative. Also, this is her first cd on the Verve label.

Susan has some new dates up on her web site. http://www.susantedeschi.com/ It looks like she will be touring across the pond too.

MUSIC
Tedeschi's 'Mom' point of view
Her song selection on cover album is affected by that role.
By LESLIE GRAY STREETER

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Friday, January 20, 2006

A few years ago, Grammy-nominated blues guitarist and singer Susan
Tedeschi went into the studio and recorded several original songs for
an upcoming album.

That album has not come out yet.

In the meantime, however, the Jacksonville resident did release last
year's well-received and deeply soulful Hope and Desire, a collection
of songs originally done by Ray Charles, Fontella Bass, Aretha
Franklin, Bob Dylan and others. And on each, Tedeschi gets to
showcase something critics might have missed when focusing on her
electrifying guitar skills a gorgeous, bluesy singing voice.

Tedeschi, 35, says that because of the birth of her daughter Sophia
in August 2004, she "didn't have the time I needed to make that
record (of originals). We basically had recorded a bunch of tunes we
were writing, but they weren't complete," she says. "We really needed
to put out a record this past year, and have it done by May 2004, so
it was a lot of running around."

Hope and Desire displays Tedeschi's vocal chops more than her
previous albums, and is also the first of her recordings not to
feature her guitar playing. Those duties were handled instead by
guitarists Doyle Bramhall II and Tedeschi's husband, Derek Trucks,
current member of the Allman Brothers Band and nephew of ABB's Butch
Trucks.

"It was really nice not to have to play! It was a nice change, and
took a lot of pressure off of me, so I could concentrate on
interpreting the songs by singing," says Tedeschi, who will be doing
her own strumming during the live show "It would be tough not to
do."

What wasn't tough, she says, was getting the rights to the songs that
she wanted to do, including the Rolling Stones' You Got The Silver,
Dylan's Lord Protect My Child and Donny Hathaway's Magnificent
Sanctuary Band. She did, however, have to persuade Verve, her record
company, to include her soaring, heart-wrenching take on the Jerry
Merrick-penned Richie Havens hit Follow.

"I had to fight to get that one on," Tedeschi says. "No one ever
knows what will be popular, but I liked it because it was different
than anything else, really pretty. We really lucked out."

While she loves all of the tracks, Tedeschi says that her song
selection was probably affected by motherhood, including Lord Protect
My Child "I love a lot of the same stuff I always did, but after
being a parent, what moves you ... takes on more of a meaning," she
says.

Kids Charlie, almost 4 years old, and 17-month-old Sophia, are
usually on the road with Tedeschi.

"Every once in a while, the kids stay home for a couple of days, but
this is what they've known," she says. "They miss Daddy a lot, and he
goes on the road more than I do. A lot of times it's tougher on them,
with Derek being so busy."

However, she's not saying that she wants them on the road in their
own bands.

"Honestly, I don't think any parent wishes their child to be a
musician. It's rough. We're going to be supportive and definitely
help nurture them," she says. "But it's not about career choice. It's
about doing what you love to. You should be happy, do it and love it."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------
I wrote this brief comment about it.
Article on Susan Tedeschi's Hope and Desire - her new cd

I just listened to this cd finally after having it for a month or
so. I really liked it. A little different than her past efforts in
that the tracks take on more of a country flair, but overall a very
nice cd. I especially loved her take on the song Follow. It is one
of my favorite songs of all time (not sure if Richie Havens wrote it
but he is the person I associate with the song). The part about her
being a mother is written all over the cd. It is a wonderful cd to
share with your children if you have and it's totally worth buying
and supporting this great female artist. Ang

As do most artists-as the saying goes, you have your whole life to write your first record and a year to write the second....

Libby, I said many prayers for you last night when I saw the doppler on TV. It was around 5am and I saw one heck of a storm raging your area. Called Pat to ask how you fared. Heaven bless.

Love the Van you sent!!

So true. Though for women I think it goes beyond just that. As I look around at the live music scene I am surprised that still so few women are heard.

I'm good, Rich, thanks! Thought I was going to Kansas there for a spell, phew!

Cold Roses, yep, that Ryans first album, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals. It's a fantastic album. If anyone wanted to check out his tunes, that's where I'd recommend starting. Some of the Whiskeytown stuff is pretty good too.

I wasn't aware of his being in Phil and Friends last year, but it doesn't surprise me. Ryan's very eclectic. He has a broad musical background.

Sorry, Dean!! I'm outta here....
