The Black Crowes and Tedeschi Trucks Band Swap Sit ins

After a night off, Tedeschi Trucks Band’s co-headlining tour with The Black Crowes resumed at Raleigh, NC’s Red Hat Amphitheatre yesterday. The members of Tedeschi Trucks Band have regularly joined The Black Crowes for their encore this tour, but last night Chris Robinson also sat in with Tedeschi Trucks Band. The Crowes singer emerged for takes on the Sly and the Family Stone classics “Sing A Simple Song” and “I Want to Take You Higher.”

The members of Tedeschi Trucks Band returned the favor during The Black Crowes’ encore. They emerged for a series of covers that included Eric Clapton’s “Don’t Know Why,” Joe Tex’s “Show Me” and Bobby Bland’s “Turn on Your Lovelight.” The Black Crowes also debuted a version of Humble Pie’s “99 LBS” during main portion of their set.

The co-headlining tour continues at Columbus, OH’s LC Pavilion this evening. Click here to view videos of this year’s previous collaborations.

99lbs is a song originally by Ann Peebles, written by her husband Don Bryant. It appears as a bonus track to the Crowes’ “Southern Harmony” album when you buy the album as part of the “Sho’ Nuff” box set. They’ve been playing it for some time.

While 99lbs is on Southern Harmony as a bonus song, they’ve never played it live. Last night was the live debut of the song.
