Was there ever a band at their peak better than....

the Allman Brothers Band? Seriously, carve out some time and listen to this version of Whipping Post (it's about 23 minutes long). The musicianship of a band with 2 lead guitarists, 2 percussionists, an organ, and Berry Oakley on bass, just flat out amazing, IMHO.

    I bought that double album waaaay back when and still listen to it quite a bit. I like "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" a lot. Never got to see the ABB before Duane died, but saw them afterward and saw Gregg a couple of times. His "Laid Back" album is a classic. I especially like "Multi Colored Lady."

    You've dusted off your LP'S and are teachin your new baby bout Rock n Roll....ain't chya :)

    Annnd....what Sorcery is this that you have performed to show the vid in a viewing pane and not a link???

    Been listening to them for years. Both my kids have had a steady influx of Allmans since they came home. Not much Skynyrd. And don't worry, Bushart: they get some Rush, too.

    I did have the little one headbanging to some Iron Maiden with me the other day. Don't worry, the only one who got hurt was me.

    As for the sorcery, maybe it's because I posted on my laptop and not my phone?

    "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is one of Dickey Betts' great songs. Kinda jazzy.

    Good to see Geddy n da boys

    One day introduce them to....

    1. Rust Never Sleeps
    2. The Yes Album
    3. Abbey Road...Side Deux
    4. And of course Floyd....never overlook the Floyd

    This will ensure they grow up---well rounded and always questioning authority :)

    Not a fan of the Beatles, and kinda on the fence on Pink Floyd. Some of it is quite good, other stuff is kinda repetitive.

    Break out the Neil then....Pour yurself a tall one---soon you'll become Jack London---headin for those northern lights---build a log cabin on a river and live peacefully ever after :)

    Wonder if Warren is using this :)

    No collection - whatever the medium - is complete without Brothers and Sisters and Live at the Fillmore East. Additional albums are icing on the cake, IMO.

    Eat a Peach is a seminal album.

    Sure, but later versions of the cuts therein were better, I think.

    OTOH, it's all good, except for the lame late 90's or early 2000's return to the Fillmore fiasco.
