Aside from new material that Gregg says he has written, and obviously Warren seems to be a fountain of new material if he wants to be, as well as Derek showing a flare for songwriting as is the case with This Sky, what do you think would be on a new Allman Brothers album?

I would really like to see Egypt make the cut!

(By the way has this already been a thread?) Maybe I should put it in the Whipping Post!

What are some possibilities? Other than "Egypt" and some cool covers, what are some known new ABB songs, ones they have not recorded yet?

A Change Is Gonna' Come and Same Thing, with the horns. To show the band's versatility, and the state of Gregg's voice. I played these to a musician recently, he said he would have never realized they were this good.

Egypt for sure.

How about all new original material. HTN was great but I think close to half of it was covers or various incarnations of other songs. There is more than enough talent in this band to come up with new stuff.

If I remember correctly, during the interviews from Hittin The Note release. Gregg and Warren mentioned they have enough new stuff just about for another CD. Warren said the same about The Mules recent release. Gregg and Warren gotz game.

Just for the record Hittin' the Note came out on March 18th, 2003. Almost four years ago! The material debuted live as early as 2001.

Rockin' Horse was from the first Mule album and Instrumental Illness borrowed from JJs Alley or one of those Dickey instruementals. I think Oteil's Walk Like a Man morphed into another song too. Can't recall off-hand.

Somehow I knew this would not go over well because of the dreaded D****y reference, but I know it's there. I've listened to many versions of both songs many times. Since I'm not really a fan of either song, and since I don't have any of those cd's around I can't cite anything specific.

Rockin' Horse was from the first Mule album
---------------------------------------------------------
Indeed it was was, but i believe it was originally intended for the ' Where it all Begins' album. I read somewhere that they could'nt get it to sound right at that time.

The Allmans have only debuted six or seven new songs since Dickey's been out of the band. That's about one song per year, on average.

By "new," I'm referring to original songs, written by ABB members, during the current tenure (and, as such, precluding "Rockin' Horse," which dates back to 1994, "Maydell," etc...)

It's really time for some new material. Brand spankin' new.

If there had to be a cover or 2, I nominate 44 Blues or Layla (think Eric would buy in?).

Rocking Horse- Mule song
Maydell- written by warren and Johnny Neal for John Mayall's Mail Order Mystics Cd
Old Friend-Warren did this song about 10yrs ago or so with a guy named Chris Anderson

Call Dickey..he has a few. Please NO Rocking Horse. That has to be the worst
song ever played by the ABB.
