"Before I bought this DVD, all I knew about Derek Trucks is that he did some second generation work with the Allman Brothers Band that helped bring that band back into the realm of my musical interests. I hadn't even thought about him lately until I spotted this DVD on sale at an area book/music store. The price was great, so I thought I'd give it a shot. What a band! This DVD is astounding! If you like a little funk and soul, stirred with some Southern Rock, and shaken with a generous shot of the blues and a dash of world music, then you are bound to like Songlines Live. I can't recall the last time I saw a music DVD where the band is so tight and the music so fluid as it it here (Well, maybe Boz Scaggs Greatest Hits Live). Some of the vocals are great and some I didn't care for, but I was never disappointed when Trucks and his band cut loose. My favorite here is the band's rendition of Key to the Highway. If you are familiar with Derek and the Dominoes' version (Eric Clapton's band), well Derek Trucks and his band just put them to shame. Trucks' play on that will make you forget you ever heard Clapton's version. This is one DVD that's going to get a lot of play at my house. Take a couple of hours out of your day, put Songlines Live on, and get ready for a real musical thrill! The low price should make your decision to own this an easy one."
As Good As It Gets

"Any fan of Trucks will want this recording, but also any fan of good music too. What I like about this guy and this band is their open and sincere and high approach to music and culture and us as listeners (shows in how they relate to the audience and how they price this DVD).
This recording is well if modestly done. Nothing flashy here, just 6 guys playing well together. I was a bit surprised to have the show start with a few short interviews introducing the band and their approach to the music. Then for the next 2+ hours we get the full uninterupted concert. And I loved the show! And I was also glad to have had the reminder of the intention behind it.
I'm a big fan of Trucks but was more impressed by the rest of the band as well, the varied selection of tunes, the skill they played and interplayed with, and the general way they approach their task. As Trucks says in the intro these guys play as it is their church, and that includes us and the collective intention of the best the world has to offer.
This is the way to approach music; from the sacred, with humility, playfulness, joy, inclusiveness, and the love of doing it right.
Derek Trucks Is Young, Energetic, And Inspiring!!

"Derek Trucks guitar prodigy, nephew of Allman Brothers drummer (Butch Trucks) is truely an incredible musician/guitarist. I have seen Derek Trucks live a couple times with his band and the Allman Brothers. Its been a long time seen I have ever seen a young guitarist in their prime. Derek has the passion any aspiring guitarist would have he shows his raw emotion, talent, and love for the guitar on songlines live. His band which formed in 1997 has members ranging from all over the world including Derek Trucks(guitar), Todd Smallie(bass), Yonrico Scott(drums, percussion), Kofi Burbridge(keyboards), Mike Mattison(vocals), and Count M'Butu(congas & percussion). This concert was shot live at The Park West in Chicago, Illinois January 28, 2006. This DVD is filled with great music from the opening song Joyful Noise to the closing Up Above My Head. My personal favorites include Crow Jane, Volunteered Slavery, Key To The Highway, All I Do, Sailing On, and Anyday. These songs have alot of different aspirations. Their are a couple bonus features which include behind songlines, life on the road, and derek trucks side projects which include the Allman Brothers, and Eric Clapton's 2006 tour. I highly recommend this to any guitarist/musician. Derek Trucks Is Young, Energetic, And Inspiring!!!!!!!! 5 stars!!
A very good concert with some nice documentary extras

"This is a very well done DVD. The concert is well shot, the band are playng good and the sound is very good. The mix is very democratic with all instruments represented well. This is truly a band performance, where you can tell they are listening to each other.
The documentaries are very well done and give a nice insight into what makes Derek and the other musicians tick.
