This jumped into my head as I was composing the header for the prior post. From Eat A Peach, one of my favorite Allman Brothers songs:
Don’t have anything particularly profound to add here. Except: what a band.

You don’t need no gypsy to tell you why.
Can never go wrong with the choice of Allman Brothers. Best album ever.
Well, maybe Live at Fillmore East was better. Both awesome vinyls.
I’ll still take Eat a Peach for Mountain Jam, Les Brers, and Stand Back.
Ii will be interesting to see what happens in 2015.. been a hella ride tho..
.. “It”… damn..
“What a band” indeed.
The “Cornerstone” of Southern Rock.
That’s a good way to start the day!
It don’t get no better than the Brothers!
Good minds…something something.
Livin on the Open Road by Delaney and Bonnie (with Duane Allman) seems appropriate, as well.
Thankfully I made the decision a long time ago to hang on to my vinyl….nothing better than hearing the ABB the way they were supposed to sound and the inside of the Brothers and Sisters album cover is the tits.
Now that’s starting a Friday (or any day) off right. Nothing better than the Brothers.
The first concert I attended was an Allman Bros. show…never looked back.
I saw ’em live in Macon in ’73.
Last song taught to me by my hs buddy and college roommate before he left for grad school. Played it at his wedding. Not nearly as well as he. He confided in me that he was growing tired of my Cat Stevens and Neil Young renditions so he had selfish motives. lol. The Ovation sits in a closet… not played in quite awhile now.
Back in my college days at Tuscaloosa there was a bar called The Brass Monkey. They had free pool and $2.50 pitchers of beer from 5-9. My roommate and I were there nearly every afternoon. We’d always play Mountain Jam on the jukebox just so we wouldn’t have to listen to whatever shit someone else might play. Talk about getting your money’s worth. Usually, after about 20 minutes into the song we’d hear some douche complaining about how long it was. If we had an extra quarter as we were departing we’d play it again just to piss off the Oasis fans.
My favorite AB recording. Enjoy.
My Dad saw the Brothers in the gym at Albany Junior College in 1971. I can’t even imagine what that was like.
It w3as fanfreakintastic! I was there, and sober enough to remember most, er, some of the concert.
It just don’t get no better! God Bless ABB…
