    I am not sure if it has been mentioned already in this thread, but I recently picked up the new 50th Anniversary Box Set that came out earlier in the year and it is really great. Lots of cool live stuff and a great cross section of the band's whole career. Highly recommended.

    Hi Steve, I just mentioned this in the previous post I made in this thread. I agree.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Not latter day Allman Brothers, but Duaneís last live show is to be released. I missed seeing him by one month, in November 71 at Carnegie Hall.

    I donít see any info on this release. I wounded if itís the one show that I have where they play Blue Sky. Or what the sound source would be. Thanks for the heads up.

    New source. Previously thought to be lost. A cassette recording from the audience.

    I think you're referring to the same show I have where they played "Blue Sky." It has a pretty distant vocal, but is otherwise really good. Can't recall the location, though.

    Iíd be more interested in hearing this rather than paying for it. Audience cassette tape recording doesn't sound appealing to me even if itís cleaned up with todayís digital standards. But it for sure is a find and worth hearing.

    Duaneís last show. A must have, for me.

    I can fully understand that. It's just hard for me to listen to really bad sounding audience recordings from the seventies. Hopefully this is listenable to the point of enjoying his last show for me. I think its really sad that Duane died before he could experience the success that he so deserved.

    Yes indeed. I saw him at Carnegie Hall a month after his death. A somber affair for everyone. My first ABB show of many. Berry said, Duane really wanted to make this gig.Ē A year later he was gone as well.

    I first saw the Allmans about 12 years ago. I bought a single ticket from some guy 3 rows from center stage. This was followed by 3 nights in Boston a few years after. Despite the fact it was late in their careers, it was earth-shattering,

    They were a very strong lineup. Especially Derek and Warren not far behind. Oteil is a monster bass player, plus Gregg and Butch and Jaimoe with Marc on percussion. Not too shabby!!!

    Yeah just listen to Hittin the Note and you can hear how good of a lineup they were. Wish they would have done another studio album after that. Seemed like with Derek and Warren having main projects outside of the band they only focused on the live shows in the summer each year. At least they recorded those shows for us to hear.

    If I recall, and my memory on this is shaky, Warren and Derek wanted to do another studio album but getting Gregg to commit to it was just impossible.
