The Allman Brothers Band Prep New Archival Releases: Duane Allman’s Final Show and Band-Favorite 2005 Gig

https://relix.com/news/detail/the-allman-brothers-band-prep-new-archival-re leases-duane-allmans-final-show-and-band-favorite-2005-gig/?utm_source=Reli x+Daily&utm_campaign=33219e35b1-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_08_14_04_39&utm _medium=email&utm_term=0_486e6e4b54-33219e35b1-25853341&mc_cid=3321 9e35b1&mc_eid=e42de547e9

The Allman Brothers Band have announced two new upcoming archival CD releases. The band will share recordings from Duane Allman’s final show with the band – dubbed ‘The Final Note’ – and recording of their 2005 show at the Warner Theatre in Erie, Penn. Both shows will be released on Oct. 16.

Duane Allman’s final show with the band occurred on Oct. 17, 1971 at the Painters Mill Music Fair in Owings Mills, Md. Just 12 days later, on Oct. 29, Allman tragically lost his life in a motorcycle accident at just 24 years of age.

The show’s recording was captured on a hand-held cassette machine by 18-year-old radio journalist Sam Idas. “My only intention was to record the interview,” recalls Idas (quote via press release.) “This was a brand-new cassette recorder with an internal microphone, and I had one 60-minute cassette tape. I was sitting there with the recorder in my lap, and I remember thinking ‘Why don’t I try this out? I can record the concert!’ It was a totally spontaneous decision. I’d been to many concerts, but this was the only time I had the thought—and the motivation—to record the show.” According to a press release, “the cassette went forgotten by Idas until a few years ago when his old roommate asked him if he still had it.”

The recordings from the show featuring versions of “Whipping Post,” “Statesboro Blues,” “Hot ‘Lanta” and more (full tracklist below). The package for ‘The Final Note’ will feature never-before-published photos from the show, liner notes from band archivist John Lynskey and a photo of the actual cassette Idas used to capture the legendary evening. According to a press release, “despite the obvious limitations that come with a 50-year-old cassette tape, modern technological enhancements help restore the magic of this significant night.”

The second archival release is the band’s July 19, 2005 show in Erie, Penn. According to a press release, this show is “long hailed as one of their best ever by the band members themselves.” At that time, the lineup consisted Gregg Allman on vocals and keyboards, Jaimoe and Butch Trucks on drums, Oteil Burbridge on bass, percussionist Marc Quinones and guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes. (This lineup, which came together in 2001, would remain until the band played its final show in October of 2014.)

The show happened to be one of the few “Evening With” shows of the tour, meaning there were two sets with no opening act, which “gave the band room to stretch and set
the tone differently from an amphitheater show.” In addition to performing Allman Brothers Band staples such as “One Way Out,” “Dreams” and “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’,” the band also incorporated stand-out covers such as “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” (with guest vocalist Susan Tedeschi) and “Into The Mystic.” The band also performed a rare show-opening version of “Mountain Jam.”

“I was feeling it while they were playing,” said Bert Holman, the band’s manager since 1991, when asked if he knew this show would be one for the books (quote via press release). “Ultimately, I knew it had been a great night when they started coming off the stage and everyone was like, ‘Man, that was a great show!’ I remember Oteil and Derek particularly being pumped about it, Haynes was pleased, and Butch was just raving about how over-the-top the show was. They all told me that they needed a copy of the show, which says a lot right there.”

See below for the full track list of both shows. Also, check out an exclusive sneak peek of the Erie, Penn. show in the form of “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’.”

Imagine having recorded Duane's last show and then forgetting that you had it. I'm a little crispy, but that is full-on. Lol.

Curious to know if the Brothers were head-lining that final concert with Duane
or were they supporting another act?

I can't imagine!

This is incredible. Back in my heydey of superfandom, somebody on this site sent me 10/15/71 and I had always known that show to be the last known recorded show. For the actual last show to surface 50 years later makes me wonder if somebody has 6/25/71 stashed away in a box still

As for Sam Idas, the story of the tape recorder and mic sounds exactly like what young Cameron Crowe was carrying around in Almost Famous trying to get that interview. Can't wait to hear it!

How cool is this??

Count me in for both.... (though when I opened this thread I was hoping that 2005 show was 3/21/05 of which Blue Sky has been released on the new 50th box set).

Imagine his old roommate knowing this and not saying anything for almost 50 years?

So, let me get this straight ....

.... this guy tapes Duane's last show before he died then forgets all about it for 45 years?

.... and then his old college chum just happens to ask him after 45 years if he still has the tape?

.... meanwhile several unscrupulous bootleggers have been compiling fake shows purporting to be from this date for years!

.... I sincerely hope that as strangely unbelievable as this story is that people have done their homework and it is in fact legit

.... I wonder

.... did anybody think to ask him if they could also have a copy of his tape from 6/26/71 at the Fillmore East?

I can't even begin to imagine how poor the quality of this recording will be. Refuse to spend any $$$ on something taken from a cassette tape.

BIGV. How is the audio on your copy? And was the band kicking it?

Supposedly all were tired and needing a break after constant touring from summer 1969 with 305 shows in 1970 alone. They could be a little jaded on this.

I'm not sure I want it. Short set list too it seems.

According to the ABB database, the band played a total of 176 shows in 1971. They played 162 shows in 287 days from January 1 1971 through October 17, 1971- Duane's last show. They did end up playing 14 more shows through December 31, after Duane's death. I can only imagine the intensity of those shows.

Anyway, back to your point--- we don't see a lot of setlists available in late 1971. However, we do know the ABB played very similar setlists the whole year. Oddly, there were certain songs that were on their albums that they rarely played in that period...like DWYNM>NMCTB, and Revival. Any idea why? Probably others as well

Blue Sky was being played some in 1971 and I have a couple of hot versions with Duane.

I saw some 1971 shows and they were fantastic with lots of energy and all six guys really hitting the note but the set lists were similar. I don't recall Black Hearted Woman either or Every Hungry Woman or Dimples or Leave My Blues At Home or Please Call Home or Hoochie Coochie Man in 1971. Gregg did all the singing unless they did Blue Sky but Berry did sing harmony on Midnight Rider. I saw about 12 shows and one in High Point College with Juicy Carter and the other horn players. I think Ace played harp at two of my shows.

But the set lists were usually Statesboro Blues, Don't Keep Me Wondering, Trouble No More, One Way Out, Stormy Monday, twice Blue Sky about here then Liz Reed. Maybe a break then You Dont Love Me that was a long jam, Out Skirts of Town (played similar to Stormy Monday), Whipping Post and I remember Mountain Jam. Actually during this stretch of 1971 they didnt play several songs on their two studio albums and but did play several on Fillmore East and One Way Out and Mountain Jam that at that time wasn't on any album.

I never saw the original band do Revival in 1970 either and Idlewild South fails to credit the backing singers on Revival so in 1986 I had some time to chat with Dickey Betts after he played on a show with Gregg and Gregg's band was on...so I ask him who is singing the harmonies on Revival and was surprised when Dickey said " I know it doesnt sound like it but that is everybody in the band". And I said " You mean Butch Trucks and Jainoe?" Dickey said " Yeah man I said everybody in the band. I still remember all six of us gathered around the mic doing that and clapping our hands and we had to start over some because we would get to laughing ".

But I've heard in 71 they did do Dimples when Duane wanted to sing and Hoochie Coochie when Berry wanted to sing.

Also Dickey said Gregg was brought in as the last member to join to be the singer. So when he wrote Blue Sky Dickey planned on Gregg singing it but when he showed it to Duane he said "No man that is your song and you fit it. I want you to sing that one". Dickey said on the next record he decided to sing Ramblin Man and as with Blue Sky he got Gregg to sing back up ( He failed to mention Chuck Leavell sings with Gregg on Ramblin' Man) and Gregg wasn't even there when they recorded Pony Boy. (Jaimoe also didn't play on Pony Boy). So Dickey said he decided to sing more going forward like he did in bands before the ABB.

Personally I think on ABB records I like it better when Gregg sings almost everything. Maybe Dickey or Warren one song per album.

From scanning setlist.com, this show appears to be one of a series, Painters Mill Music Fair, Owings Mills, MD, none of which dates are documented with more than a single act...

No supposing at all. The above is a bogus show put together from other performances. It is not legit. Much as the mid 70's "Georgia Tech" show and the 3/27/72 Lincoln show and the "Syracuse" Derek & The Dominos December '70, just to name a few. All bogus.

Yeah. That was my first thought as well. An early 70's hand-held cassette recorder with an internal microphone is about as "lo-fi" as it gets. I'm skeptical that the sound quality could be improved much even with today's technology.

I completely agree. I made a similar post on the Steve Hoffman forum. It looks lazy / cheap. Especially the fonds used. Could have been a cover i made myself on crappy software in order to have a homemade cover for a show i got in a trade. There's even a lack in consistency: while looking similar to the recent Fillmore West release it now has "Allman Brothers Band" on the cover in stead of "The Allman Brothers Band". I'm not a graphic designer but i think those covers have a bootleg / grey area design quality. An official ABB release deserves better. Sorry if this sounds like whining. Looking forward to an uncirculated Duane era show though.

Can't completely tell but that looks like Duane's Les Paul goldtop. Duane had changed guitars twice for his number one by his last show. After the Goldtop Duane played a Les Paul cherry red sunburst. Last shows Duane was playing a Les Paul tobacco burst that had DUANE pressed into the wood in the back of the body with old frets. And an SG Dickey gave him for slide. If I'm right, this picture is from 1970.

Agree. I hate to complain about new releases, and album covers are more inconsequential than ever in the digital age, but presentation can be an indicator of the effort that went into the product. Fans will always be excited to hear more Duane performances, but not any performances. I'm sure we will get some sound bites in the next month, we will just have to wait and see...
