Who likes the Allman brothers, and if so, then what is your favourite album?

And while we talk music, has anybody heard from WaBob

I saw their 'premiere' at Love Valley Rock Festival June (July?) 1970...Andy Barker the Mayor of Love Valley threw a blast at his Old West town near Statesville NC..it was his daughter's birthday party got out of hand...100,000 came to the 'happening' i happened to be 18 yr old and was corrupted by school teachers from Florida camped next to my 1960 Chevy Impala who said 'hey kid take a puff of this'..Tied to the Whippin Post indeed....oh my pal Brutus and I got drunk on Ripple and he fell off a stage scaffold..it was a major turning point in my life...i went hip.............

Just before they signed their recording contract with Capricorn, the Allmans gave several free concerts in Atlanta's Piedmont Park. A few thousand attended, but several million claim to have been there nowadays. Sadly, I was not there. Greg

I like 'em OK. Their music always sounds happy and upbeat to me, and I've enjoyed their songs over the years. Never have bought an album though.

At Filmore East.....and my favorite song, In memory of Elizabeth Reed.

I only got to see them twice....once in a sleezy Daytona Beach bar before they hit it big and again in Tampa, FL right after Duane was killed...and Barry was still with them. That night they changed a line in Whipping Post to "sometime there's no such thing as dying".....Barry was killed a short time later.

Always liked that lazy southern groove they laid down. The vintage Marshall amp and Gibson guitar combination had a grainy, powerful, solid sound. The music flowed from somewhere else, with a spooky power that always made me stop and listen. Saw the band late '70's I think at a big mudhole east of Columbus called Legend Valley. Remember part of it, anyway, though seems a bit foggy for some reason.

Gregg Allman's "Laid Back" album is one of the best...

WaBob is still recuperating and getting in as much personal, family & close friends face time as possible.

Saw them live in one of their last performances with Duane and Barry. They broght the house down. I wanted to see them so bad I bought tickets for a couple of my buddies to go with me.
The best concert I have ever attended without a doubt.

Folks;

Y'all Are breakin' my heart, There will never be a combo like those guys.

"Stevie Ray Vaughn"??? Got real close.

I bet Clapton is still hurtin' over Duane. What a pair!

Steve, God sakes man, Is Johnny Winter still alive?(no hijack intended)

I'm starting to really feel 56.

Eat a Peach

Blue Skies will always remind me of summer days...

the live portions of Eat a Peach were the other part of the Filmore Recordings, and the entire show was re-released somewhat recently as The Filmore Concerts or some such...
Trouble No More, One Way Out, plus unreleased tracks...

i have seen the Allman Bros a few times- they were my very first concert pretty soon after Duane died...last time i saw them was just a few years back... boy to this day, they REALLY come out to play. the combo of Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes on guitars is some VERY heady stuff.

i always felt Dickie Betts was one of THE unappreciated guitar players of our day...but boy he must have done some pretty Heinous shyte to get thrown out of the Allman Bros Band- they are certainly no angels....

I teach Spin classes at a local health club, and use "Jessica" often for a good tempo ride...by the end, the class is pretty much tempo-ed out!! laugh

LOVE them!

Unfortuneately I missed seeing them with Duane or Berry. Saw them for the first time in June 1973 at RFK Stadium with The Grateful Dead. What a day that was! And I have a recording so I can relive it (well sort of) at will. Have seen them many times since over the years and, yes, the current line up with Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks sure can bring it!

Favorite album? I guess I would have to say Live at Fillmore East but all of them through Eat a Peach are incredible.

Listen the them and then found I enjoyed Warren. Now have Live at Bonneroo and Govt Mule (Govt Mule). Also found I liked Mr. Trucks...and his wife's singing even better so now have several of Susan's cds.

They have sure gathered some of the best talent around.

The Allman Brothers are definitely my favorite band with Live at Fillmore East at the top of the list. I have seen them live quite a few times although I can't recall what year I saw them first (long term loss of short term memory?)

I have been working on a short video of a ride around the lake I live at on my Norton Commando. I had planned on using "In Memory of ELizabeth Reed" as the soundtrack but the youtube censors shot it down. I have to find a creative way around this because the music worked out well with the ride.

I have seen them a couple of times, once at Knoxville Worlds Fairground, it was without Dickie, they had John Melencamps guitar player filling in. I guess thats why they played all the classics instead of their newer stuff, but in any case they were fantastic. Greg's stage presence is awe inspiring.

I was always confused as to why The Grateful Dead was touted as the great 'jam band', most of the live recordings sounded like a reefer powered garage jam to me, but the Allmans....now THATS a jam band.

The more I listen to Warren Haynes the closer he gets to being my favorite guitarist, no matter who he is playing with.

'Jessica' is my pic for best instrumental song of all time, great traveling tune, but 'Southbound' is in my opinion the best driving song ever. I just wish they would pick up Chuck Leavell again on piano.
