Songlines Live is a live concert DVD by the Derek Trucks Band.
It was recorded at the Park West in Chicago on January 28, 2006.
It’s unusual for me to feature a DVD which doesn’t have an accompanying CD or digital download to create an audio only version but I tend to make exceptions for Trucks.
The band recorded a studio album called Songlines but this is much more than that album played live.

What do you think?
Is this the best live recording by the Derek Trucks Band or Tedeschi Trucks?
I haven’t included it in the blues album poll because it’s only on DVD.
