I know this has been talked about , but found this today.

They mention the "Allman Brothers Band Recording Company, distributed by The Orchard." Is this a new venture where we can expect more archival releases?


https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/allman-brothers-band-to-release-2-cd-set- of-2005-concert-in-erie-pennsylvania/

Throughout its illustrious 45-year career, the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND has played many legendary venues and widely praised live shows. However, up until this point, the sold-out show on July 19, 2005 at the Warner Theatre in Erie, Pennsylvania hasn't been included on that list. Long hailed as one of their best ever by the band members themselves, on October 16 fans will have the opportunity to experience this spectacular show for themselves with the commercial release of a 2-CD set via Allman Brothers Band Recording Company, distributed by The Orchard.

By the summer of 2005, the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND had moved into a comfort zone of stability and superb chemistry. The lineup — Gregg Allman on vocals and keyboards, drummers Jaimoe and Butch Trucks, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks on guitars, Oteil Burbridge on bass and percussionist Marc Quinones — had been together since 2001 and had established a groove, both on and off the stage.

The 2005 tour was a typical ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND run of festival and amphitheater shows, with a sprinkling of casino and theater appearances thrown in along the way, Warner Theatre being one of them. In the weeks leading up to this show, the band had traveled a great deal with long drives and performed three shows in a row before arriving in Erie early on July 18, a much-needed day off. The band came into this show rested and ready to turn things up for the last five shows of the run.

A major ingredient to the success of this night was the meticulously crafted setlist from Warren Haynes, with input from the other members. Since this was one of a few "Evening with" theater shows, and was to be a two-set show with intermission and no opening act, this gave the band room to stretch and set the tone differently from an amphitheater show. With the recent release of 2003's "Hittin' The Note", there was a lot of new material to pull from as well as exceptional new covers which had recently been brought into the fold ("The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right", with guesting vocalist Susan Tedeschi). The group kicked things off with rare show-opener "Mountain Jam" and it was evident that the band was firing on all cylinders, right from the jump.

When asked when he realized that this performance was something special, Bert Holman, ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND's manager since 1991, noted: "I was feeling it while they were playing. 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."

Disc 1 track listing:

01. Mountain Jam
02. Statesboro Blues
03. Firing Line
04. Good Morning Little School Girl
05. Midnight Rider
06. The High Cost of Low Loving
07. Trouble No More
08. Mountain Jam (Reprise)
09. Melissa
10. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
11. Don't Keep Me Wonderin'

Disc 2 track listing:

01. Into the Mystic
02. Dreams
03. Leave My Blues At Home
04. Jabuma
05. Leave My Blues At Home (Reprise)
06. Don't Think Twice, It's All Right (featuring Susan Tedeschi)
07. Jessica
08. One Way Out

I am glad Firing line is on it. I could do without Jabuma, Good morning little school girl, into the mystic, Don't think twice it's alright . But if the band members say this is a great show then that means a lot.

It's probably the same as instant live. These archival releases only sell about 20 thousand copies so they are not likely to invest too much.

I'm glad Firing Line is on it too. The best track on an otherwise average album for the ABB.

I listened to my copy and it sounds muddy compared to the Cream of the Crop set that came out. Maybe they can improve the sound.

From 2000-2014 The Allman Brothers Band was a SMOKING hot rock/jazz/blues band. It just CANNOT be denied so it comes as no surprise that some would be so excited about this release. I have six Instant Lives from this era and every one is just outstanding.

Despite that fact some just cannot rest at ease without comparing them to the original lineup. Different band, different era.

'SMOKING hot' thru 2006, but cooled off slowly but surely, almost imperceptibly, thru to 2014...

Disagree all around. For the song, that is all opinion so no right or wrong. I like Firing Line and it was written in hopes of some radio which it got. But there are so many amazing songs on that album.

Which brings us to Point 2 - average? Matches or surpasses anything after Brothers and Sisters on. There isn't a bad song on it and no filler. Pretty damn good average.

Production wise and from Gregg's performance - his best album since the 89 Reunion and again since Brothers and Sisters. The playing is top notch all around and contains some of Derek's best playing on record.

I know you were just trolling for more debate on who can "beat" who. Apples/Oranges

Fair, but with a resurgence and return to red hot in 2009. Beacon ‘09 gets lots of recognition and rightly so, but Fall Tour ‘09 - much of it with Bruce Katz on keys - is sensational.

I watched some of 2009 as it happened via stream, in-person at the Beacon plus some summer shows (and I have the DVD). The peaks represent the exception to the general rule I stated before where flashes of brilliance prevailed rather than a consistent element of adventure and surpirse. You presume just a bit too much, there, buddy boy.

You hate this one before hearing it also? Well we should all stop enjoying things and ask you if we should like it first.

Yeah - the band was just absolutely terrible after 2006 - Derek could no longer tune. Warren started playing left handed. Otiel was playing Dead songs while the rest of the band were playing ABB tunes. Just terrible.

LMAO

Dovetail - if you don't like it - don't buy. Maybe others want to. Considering you keep bashing on things that you have yet to hear - I think it is you who presumes a bit too much, there, Buddy Boy.

Now we know why they never released any of these old shows - Dovetail doesn't like them and he knows that you should hate it too because he does and he knows better.

Now go throw out every show after 2006 as they were all terrible and the band was in such decline. Damn and I thought that I saw and owned plenty of great shows after 2006. I should have consulted Dove before buying to make sure that I was allowed to like it.

WOW!?!?!....You're tweaked aren't ya!?!?!....I was going to offer some reply, but why belabor the points under discussion?: recognizing the simpleminded, idol-worshpiping (is that redundant?) audience, it would be an exercise in futility.

No worries.

Threads where people are celebrating the fact that there will be some new releases. Yeah those are just terrible threads. All these simple minded Buddy Boys bowing to the alter and enjoying music. Threads about New ABB releases should be confined to The Whipping Post along with politics etc.

Funny it seems that you are the argumentative, name calling person in the thread. Strange how peoples' perceptions often omit their actions.

Anyway - I hope the releases surprise you and the playing is so stellar it amazes us all. It's Only R&R - OK not to like it all.

Its nice to know that the fine art of trolling is Still Alive and Well (sorry Johnny Winter) on the good ole Blue Sight. The ABB still put on a damn hot show right until the end! I remember standing under a full moon in the big field at Wanee and thinking how lucky I was to be in the moment of greatness. How I wish that I could still attend one of those post 2006 "cooled off slowly but surely, almost imperceptibly, thru to 2014 shows". It is more than OK to have an opinion but keep the over the top baseless critiques to yourself.

Not a baseless critique when I'd seen the band multiple times over the years--dating back to 1971 & 1973--then each Beacon run two or three dates from 2003 thru 2014 plus summer tour stops PLURAL in that same span of time as well....Funny how a considered but differing opinion (sic) gets you fanboys all bent out of shape: are you (like Robslob and CanuckMule) a bit insecure when it comes to your own perceptions (or spotty recollections maybe?)....

You said the band started to cool off after 2006, I took major issue with that, still do, and I cited evidence to back my case. Let me give you some more: I was at Wanee 2007 both nights. I have Instant Lives of both of these shows. THE BAND WAS COMPLETELY ON FIRE, in fact I am astonished at what I hear on those discs just like I was at the shows. Cooling off? If it happened, it certainly was not in 2007 or in the 2009 40th Anniversary run. I repeat, your comments are baseless and inaccurate.

It’s all in what one hears I suppose
Recalling how enthusiastic the reviews were here on the boards about the fall 2011 (2012?) shows in Boston & Philly, would love to have seen those released - or a show w/Jack that many have mentioned
This era was well documented w/the ILs/traded shows etc - but no complaints here, this show must burn indeed for it to have been picked!
Also, I love the ABB
