I bought a ticket early on, a somewhat nosebleedy seat in section 210 for $125 total. Not great but not bad. I went through the stages of denial and acceptance about it. After it all, while I wished at times during the show I had paid some extra cash or done some extra work to get a better seat, just being there was great.

Mood-wise, for me, the show made me feel how I felt when I watched the video stream of TTB doing "Layla." I watched that broadcast in awe as a bunch of musicians at the top of their game put all of their creative juices into making a lovely tribute to some music I have loved for decades. This MSG show felt the same way.

When we first sat in our very small and tight nosebleedy seats, we did some adjusting. I predicted the opener would be "DWYNM" or "Statesboro" and felt pretty damned smug 3 songs in.

As it became apparent that this was a laser-focused show pointed at 1969-1973, I sat up. I loved the 2001-2014 shows and was glad the band tried out covers and new originals and guests, and etc. - in fact, in general, I prefer oddities and experiments to greatest hits when it's a band I know this well - but this show was pointed like a laser at the heart of the band's best material with the clear goal of making every second stand out in 3D.

Warren was the early star of the show for me. This guy has clearly been the driving energy and musical director behind much of the 1989-2014 run. He played Duane to Dickey for a while, and helped to energize Dickey and give him a good partner, and he wrote and sang, and then when Dickey was gone, Warren REALLY stepped up and was setlist commander and sometimes conductor, but for him to come out and take lead vocals was obviously a new step in his evolution in this role.

Back in the 90s, when Mule started, I respected Warren but often found his singing a little harsh. Some people I know feel the same way about John Fogerty. I've also not always been a fan of his penchant for melodramatic man-ballads. However, on 3/10, he sang with grace and subtlety as well as feel and power. I'll be honest and I'll regret saying it a bit: he was pumping out these songs with power that Gregg just had not had for a while. Gregg's age and vulnerability certainly added a certain element of beauty to many of the songs over the last 2 decades, and they were HIS songs, so I never doubted it, but hearing Warren sing them out with such force and power was really something else. Again, I'm often not a fan of Warren singing, so for me, this was revelatory.

I've already mentioned on other threads that in our section (210), the mix was way off. One guitar would be turned OFF. My cousin sat in 208 and it was the same for him. Thus, we did not hear Derek in the busy DWYNM but did hear him in the sparse "Ain't My Cross," but then he disappeared for the next few tunes. We got Derek's guitar in the mix for the wonderful ending jam of "Black Hearted Woman" and that was great. However, for "Dreams," he was inaudible. I thought that Warren's soloing in the first half of "Dreams" was incandescent. For the second half, we only got Warren's rhythm guitar and the band's groove. No Derek soloing could be heard at all. While initially this was frustrating, it became fascinating.

I love hearing what makes songs tick and what layers lie below. I love the Rick Beato video series as well as the BBC Classic Album series in which engineers dial tracks back to expose different elements of a song. At a restaurant I worked at for 2 years, one speaker in the bathroom sound system was blown, so you could go in there and hear "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" with just Keith's guitar, no Mick Taylor, and be really fascinated by what you heard. I spent a lot of time in that bathroom.

So the MSG set 1 was somewhat like that. With "Soulshine," all we got was Derek's rhythm, which it turns out is lovely and compelling. I've always just focused on Warren in that song because it is his song. Fascinating stuff.

Still a little unfortunate. Two other quick quibbles: the video screens were a second or two behind the music, which was jarring, AND they often focused on the wrong player, to a comical point really. After a while, you realized that during every hot guitar solo, they would focus on Jaimoe. Lol. Anyway -

The crisp energy and clear confidence that Warren brought to the vocals brought an edge, a toughness, a swagger, a confidence, a sense of purpose that at times was not present at all times during the ABB's latter days. This sense was heightened by the confidence, chops, and power of Reese Wynan's B3 and then Chuck's keyboard playing. A third element may have been Duane Trucks.

However you want to view it, the energy level and focus and drive to both pay tribute and to exceed was so potent on this night, maybe more than I've ever seen. They played a full 3 1/2 hours and laid it all out. Maybe it is becuase they knew they could. They rested before hand and did not have a gig the next day.

Chuck Leavell's presence obviously added to the firepower. A true Brother AND a virtuoso for sure. His gospel groove before "Soulshine" was so freaking sweet, and obviously "Jessica" was a monster, and boy they opened THAT song up. Epic. I think for the night as a whole, Derek may have done too much of his "slow the groove down, then fire it back up," but it worked. Warren hitting the Dickey part on this was orgasmic.

It was clear and interesting that "Soulshine" was the only post-1973 song in the first set. Again, as much as I enjoyed the flavor and unpredictability of catching songs like "Woman Across the River' or "Into the Mystic" or "Blind Willie McTell" in the 2001-2014 stretch, it was cool to see the band focus on giving glory to The Canon.


The second set just slew. Unreal. The Mountain Jam was epic, with both keyboard players opening it up, and Chuck singing Blue Sky was so sweet. Again the band really cracked the song open, and at this point, we were starting to feel the frenzied sense that every song would top the one before. "Desdemona" was UNBELIEVABLE. It was notable that this was only the second tune past 1973, and the ONLY song by the final line-up. They gave it a full work-out - it was epic and gorgeous, getting the band into the jazz groove, and the lyrics brought a tear to my eye. What a true Warren/Gregg song.

I'll admit I did a slight cringe when "Melissa" started. I'm an ass. I've just heard it so many times. However, Derek blew it to the heavens. I need to hear it again.

What I enjoyed about Derek and Warren is that clearly both men have continued to grow and develop as players since 2014. I have found that some of my many Instant Live recordings can get a certain sameness as Derek and Warren can lock into some of the same patterns - Warren doing the 2-finger diddle or the pedal-point lick, Derek doing the same-lick-moving-up-a-step or else detuning the bass E - both guys doing the ultra-fast full arm shred - so many solos ending with them trading licks at the top of the fretboard - I felt like on this night, while they revisited some stock licks, they both played some surprising stuff.

Derek at times sounded like he had learned from his crazy sax player, and Warren at times sounded like he had learned from Derek!

"No One Left to Run" was poignant. The video feed showed fallen ABB players like Gregg and lamar and Allan and etc but also Bill Graham, Tom Dowd, and roadies.

When the band took their final bows, it seemed awkward, like they were unsure whether to make a speech or not, and Derek had left the stage while everyone else wondered what was what. It turned out that he had gone to fetch Jaimoe. Freaking great. Class act.

Last thoughts:
-maybe the most bad ass full night of playing from Derek I've seen
--best Warren singing ever
-this had better come out on DVD / CD/ some kind of release
-this will certainly fuel tour talk.

I have been content and respectful of the band ending in 2014 and then of the general understanding that in the absence of Butch and especially Gregg, there should be no further Allmans band. The other guys have great directions to pursue that I love.They deserve the chance to go craft their own legacy, and I have loved the variety and new directions they offer. Create anew! Don't dwell on (or in) the past!

However.

This show was so legit and so strong that it completely changed my mind on the topic.

If these guys appear again, this is a must see.

Definitely an awe-inspiring night. Agree with just about everything said above. Kudos also to Mark and Duane Trucks. The freight train was alive and well.

One fortunate aspect of watching the stream was that that mix did not have the guitar problems. Derek's excellent solo in Dreams was right out front. I listened to one of the taper streams and the problem with the house mix was very evident. I am sure any future release will provide us with the best mix.

And totally agree that Warren's vocals had a power and strength that was not present in the band's final years.

I love these long reviews. They say it better than I can.

Stray thoughts: What a night to remember, huh!? When the band walked out and Duane hit the drums just like Butch used to do before every show, that was the signal that reminded my soul to strap in and get ready for the ride of my life.

I was on the floor half way back in the front section and the first few songs were a little hard to get into as people were still pouring in and usher flashlights and this and that. I was happy they were blowing through a few "short" ones during this time as the crowd settled in.

Then Dreams. Yes, I also couldn't hear Derek where I was either, but how about the lights?? This is the only Allman show I've seen with people behind the stage and no backdrop. The slow wavy lights shining on the fans behind the stage was incredibly psychedelic and mesmerizing. My point of view was very much an "In the Round" feel with these Pillars of Jam, Veterans, Geniusus of their craft, Risen on that stage surrounded 360 degrees by the diehards for One Final Ride. Absolutely Incredible and one of a kind setting.

I flew in and failed to get ahold of any edibles or other concert treats. Oh well. I was blown away several times completely sober in my younger days at Allman shows so I didn't need it. I was just drinkin. Black Hearted Woman, Dreams, Jessica all in the first set.... wow wow wow.

Then they start Set 2 with Mountain Jam into Blue Sky into Desdemona!? Are you kidding me?? When has that ever happened?

3 hours in to this show of shows, we run out to get one last drink during Every Hungry Woman and get back for Melissa. There's a dude in our seats. He sticks around in the aisle and Melissa ends, the opening notes of Liz Reed begin, and he opens his hand and like Manna from Heaven, there lies the joint. So if it isn't already the best concert ever, I then launch into freaking ORBIT for the final hour. Liz Reed, No One to Run With, One Way Out, Midnight Rider, and Whippin Post! Thank you mystery dude! I felt every note, and every beat, of those final songs. No words. Just a heartfelt Thank You to the Brothers for doing it again.

And how bout them Brothers? They walked out there and just Slayed every single song with effortless ease. It's the pinnacle of what I want to hear at a concert. They're bar none the Best.

Great write up, Jim. I'm totally with you regarding Warren's singing - not always a fan but he was spot on for this show. I was at a Gregg-less Beacon show in 2014, and though that was disappointing, there was a totally different, fresh energy to it. So glad this show was everything and then some for everyone who went.

Porkchop, gotta respectfully disagree about the 2014 Greggless show. I have it on CD and it holds up fine. What impressed me was how Warren and Derek got to take their time and go other places. I remember others posting how it was one of the stronger shows of the run.

dzobo - Glad you also heard Derek's solo on Dreams, yes the PPV audio was outstanding. Jim & Joe, thank you for your perspectives, always a great crowd and the brothers truly went out on top.

The show far exceeded any expectations. I knew it would be good, but this was just as good as it gets.
Everyone was smiling, genuine joy on the stage, in the crowd. Susan Trucks was having a blast at ringside.

Hats off to Duane Trucks filling the void left by Butch. He nailed it.
Everyone did.

The key for me was the tempo. I've seen the ABB nearly a hundred times, mostly in the post-2000 era. In the later years, some of the tunes began to drag, especially as Gregg had his health issues.
To hear these songs, with these players, at full tilt?? One of the greatest musical experiences of my life.

I don't know that it will ever happen again, but if it does, I'm there.

Mule 75. Fill tilt and no dragging or jaded takes on the songs was the way the original lineup was especially when they really hit their stride from mid 1970 to Duane's death in 1971.

All 6 players were young, full of energy and fed off each others energy and just, as Butch said, let it cook and eat and let the music just flow and often go to a new place with zero concern of a train wreck.

My take on 3/10 MSG was the musicians on the stage mirrored the mindset of the original band many of the times I saw them. All players focused and determined to let that music push and inspire not only the players but the audience.

Jim, thanks for the long review and thoughts. Really enjoyed reading that.

I saw the webcast - thank you again for that powers that be - and thought it was one of the best shows I’ve seen in a very long time. I especially agree with your points about Warren’s singing. I’ve always been a fan of his singing but he really did a great job with his power and ESPECIALLY his phrasing. Just really nailed it and I definitely agree that it breathed new life in to the songs. I feel the same about Gregg in the last years of the ABB, always a treat to hear his voice which is incredible but health issues were certainly taking a toll. What a warrior he was to go out there and give all he had anyway. But yes, as much as I love Warren’s vocals I was expecting him to do a competent job of filling in on vocals and was very surprised that he was able to do much more than that. Filling in for Gregg on vocals is an impossible ask but he not only filled in, he really breathed fresh life in to the songs by balancing Gregg’s phrasing’s with his own voice. Just like he did in ‘89 with Duane’s slide parts. He was just fantastic. It’s amazing that Warren continues to surprise and push it further even after all these years.

That show was a treat.

REALLY hope these guys tour.

While their at it, I’d love to see a couple of albums too. &#128515;

I was going to go to NY but just couldn't swing it. After listening to the show I am glad I didn't go. I hate to be a wet blanket and I am really glad that everyone seemed to have had a great time (glad they actually got the show in).

The reason I'm glad I didn't go is that while the music was awesome, I just had a hard time listening to all of Gregg's songs and him not doing them. I love Warren and he can (and does) cover everything under the sun. I don't mind an ABB song being sung by someone other than the original. But listening to so many of Gregg's songs without him doing them made me kind of sad.

I've been to and listened to a couple other Mule shows where they will devote an entire set to ABB songs and I never had a problem with it. These were before Gregg's passing so maybe that has something to do with my thoughts.

I am really glad they did this show and it seems as though the reception was good and the band well received.

Lee, I like to consider myself a superfan, but I can't touch your 65,000 posts.... lol

I, and thousands of other fans, had the time of our lives at the show. At one point during the first set, it started to smell like Church down on the floor. No really. I don't know what was going on but it started to smell like that incense that the priest waves over everybody at mass. It added a great effect to what felt like a Jam mass.

During No One To Run With, I knew it was getting near the end and it would never happen again so I had to do a round of high fives in my section with all the folks who I got to run with one last time. Kinda like that peace offering at Church.

Then I woke up the next day and had to get back to reality. Get back to my job, 2 kids, and lovely wife, workin at the proverbial "commerce bank" for the rest of my life.

It was the Concert of a Lifetime.

Joe, you are the first person to tell me I talk too much! Heh Heh!

Glad you had a great time. I'm sure I would have as well. As I mentioned, happy they got the show in at all!

Some have posted that they'd like to see this hit the road. While it would be cool, I would think the logistics of it would make it kind of impossible.

I have been listening to this band since the day in 1970 (maybe '71) when my best friend called me to tell me he had just seen a band set up and play for a few hours on the lawn at UC Riverside and they were the best band he'd ever seen. He made that cassette recording of them that circulates today. I went out and bought "The Allman Brothers Band", dropped the needle, and the opening notes of "Don't Want You No More" slapped me upside the head and I haven't been the same since. Saw the Brothers with Duane three times, twice in a small club. Saw the 5-man band. Saw the band with Chuck. This performance at MSG on 3/10 is up there with the best Allman Brothers Band music I've ever heard. Wish I had been there - if you were, you witnessed something amazing.

Thanks for your thoughts Jim. To be honest, normally I would not read something that long(no offense) but very tasteful and thoughtful. Much appreciated.

I have seen some random fan videos where the audio was pretty decent. Band looked and sounded great. Would have been a blast to be there.

Has Jaimoe, Oteil,Derek,Warren,Marc all shared the stage together since 2014's final shows?

I am sure a lot of the greatness of the performance was fueled by many things. Let alone being masters of their craft,plus...

The celebration of 50yrs of music from a great band that they were a part of.
Being able to share the stage with your"Brothers" again and perform.
Maybe getting away for awhile can freshen things upon a return. A new and different perspective over time on those great tunes could have made them more fiery, intense and exciting .Causing them to pull out all the stops and go for it.


I know a few have mentioned that they would like to see this hit the road. I would welcome that in a heart beat. Would it happen? Dunno. I think I could maybe see some more one off shows here and there or do some festivals over the summers to come. Maybe keep it more special that way I guess. I tmight be hard to get all of them together due to their respective other bands. We shall see!!

I always wanted to hear more original music from the last lineup before Butch and Gregg left us. It would be interesting to see what "The Brothers " could come up with. A lot of the songwriting would probably fall on Warrens shoulders, I assume.

Count me among those. A mini-tour of maybe 6 dates would be cool. Of course I'm greedy and would be pissed if the Bay area was not included.

But there are big problems working that out: Mainly, the schedules of all involved, some of whom are involved in often touring bands: Derek Trucks, Duane Trucks, Warren Haynes, Chuck Leavell, Marc Quinones, Oteil Burbridge. Whether it could conceivably all mesh together is a very tough question.

I concur with the general consensus that this was an EPIC night of music , and a special experience.

One thing I wold like to make special note of was the homage paid to both Gregg, and Butch at the very beginning of each set. I found it very comforting to hear Greg's voice open the vocals for the night ... it was respectful, and wholly appropriate ... just as equally was the Butch intro on the Tympani drum to Mountain Jam - again, very touching.

Overall, I thought the night could not have gone better ... although, having said that - I'm still a little disappointed that Ramblin' Man was not given The Brother's treatment ... I think it would have been a hell of a sing a long ... Not a complaint - just a missed opportunity.

Peace to all. Long live The Allman Brothers Band.

Thank you for all the posts. I didn't see the performance. Life happens. At the very least, I hope it will be available on dvd/replay/bootleg etc. The road goes on forever!

It was difficult to hear him as he didn't speak directly into the microphone, but from my vantage point on the floor, he acknowledged the crowd and the incredible musicians on the stage.

This one seemed to have the most Derek in Dreams

http://bt.etree.org/details.php?torrentId=608888

Can’t wait for an official recording

Great show!

Some trivial thoughts- I think it’s interesting that the count off to Statesboro became part of the song. Duane did count off other songs on the AFE album

I’m also glad that Warren restored the
“I’ll tell everybody...”
Verse to Trouble No More. On EAP, that has my favorite Duane response

Yes Tumbleweed. That sounds about right. Also Derek Trucks acknowledged in an interview I just read the idea for this show came from Jaimoe. Derek said when Jaimoe called he couldn't say no. That nobody could say no to Jaimoe.

The only no came from Dickey Betts. Jaimoe has Dickey's phone number and said usually Dickey doesn't answer so Jaimoe has to leave a message. Dickey's manager got in touch and said Dickey is unable to travel right now.

Dickey is the oldest of the original members. Born 1943. Jaimoe born 1944. Duane Allman 1946. Butch and Gregg 1947 and Berry Oakley 1948. Lamar Williams 1949. Chuck Leavell 1952. Warren 1960. Derek Trucks 1979.

Warren Haynes was just 9 years old when the Allman Brothers Band formed and recorded their first album. Derek Trucks was ZERO. Born the same year Enlighten Rogues came out. But both Warren and Derek grew up listening to ABB music and both said Fillmore East and Eat A Peach in particular. Warren's older brother turned Warren on to the brothers. With Derek is was his father who was the brother of the ABB's drummer so Derek grew up in an Allman Brothers home. Derek's father was a huge Duane Allman fan. He named Derek after Derek and the Dominos and Duane Trucks for you know who.

Dickey's son is Forrest Duane Betts and Berry's son is actually Berry Duane Oakley not Berry Oakley Jr. Berry was born Raymond Berry Oakley 3rd.

Howard Duane Allman, Gregory Lenoir Allman, Forrest Richard Betts, Raymond Berry Oakley 3rd, Claude Hudson Trucks, Jr. Johnny Lee Johnson.

I know most already know their full names. I learned them in 1970 and put this on here for the few who do not know and wondering.

BTW one of my favorite westerns is called Tumbleweed. It stars Audi Murphy who was the most decorated soldier in WW2. Russell Johnson (the professor on Gilligan's Island), Lee Van Cleef ( Good, Bad and Ugly) and the great Chill Wills are also in it.

This is the Liz Reed from the show. I do not believe you can buy a ticket for live music that sounds better than this in 2020... maybe ever. This one was positioned in the "show-stopper" slot for the night, so it was teed-up and smashed. They haven't played together for 5.5 years, but they can get back together for one night and sound like this. It is incredible.

The folks who went to the show were very fortunate.
