Nice that they got awards, but that album is far from being blues. Kinda like the Grammy thing.

Charlie Musselwhite deserves those awards, he's a great player and not well recognized for what he does.

Oh yeah, and what those other guys said.

I don't really consider TTB a Blues band either but they are certainly great and IMO deserve all of the kudos and awards they get. Looking forward to the live record although I am disappointed that it is so short with only 11 tracks.

I can see where some of you are coming from, saying Revelator is not a blues album. The Memphis folks are usually purists, so I'm actually a little surprised TTB did so well at the BMAs.

However, any art form needs to change and grow to stay vital, and in my opinion, no genre of music is more in danger of becoming a fossilized relic than the blues.

Recently I've been saying that I have "blues fatigue." The same old, same old, formulaic 12 bar blues just doesn't do it for me anymore. Judging from the lack of success most blues acts have, I think a lot of the public feels the same way.

Don't get me wrong, there are still some blues artists that never get old to me. John Lee Hooker and Paul Butterfield would be two examples. But Stevie Ray Vaughan was the last "new" blues artist that got me really excited, and that was 30 years ago.

Maybe the BMA people recognize that Derek and Susan are doing something different, and even if it isn't blues in the purest sense of the word, they feel that deserves praise.

11 tracks that take up 2 cd's. I read an interview with Derek and he said the shortest song on the album is still over 8 minutes. For all those people that don't dig TTB or Revelator and want DTB back, this live album should show them what the band is all about. Looking forward to having my face melted on May 22

Congratulations to Susan, Derek & TTB!

It's impossible not to agree that their music isn't pure blues, but I also have to agree with what robslob said...it's something different and might keep people interested.

Yeah, for instance the 4 track Revelator Live EP CD released on Record Store Day is 40 minutes long. An average of 10 minutes per song; 3 of which or on the new live CD as well. BTW, the Japanese import version of the new live CD will be having two bonus tracks.

Agreed. Charlie deserves recognition. He's a great harp player and bluesman.
