It's extremely hard to beat the Allman Brothers' multiple-assailant attack, isn't it? They had a unique sound, & I forever miss 'em dearly!

I recall seeing the ABB in I believe early 74 at the Orange Bowl in Miami. We drove up from Ft. Lauderdale and almost got killed when a truck slammed on its brakes in front of us on I-95 and we nearly skidded into the back of it.  Reflexes could be somewhat dull back then. I remember they were touring for the Eat a Peach album and had a peach eating contest after the last warm up band and before the ABB took the stage. I believe it was at this concert that they had to make a PSA that the windowpane was a 4 way hit as there were apparently a lot of people who figured that out a little too late. They always had first aid centers at concerts back then. They were particularly busy that day. Concerts were all day events usually consisting of at least 3-4 bands and cost around $12-$15. Even taking into account inflation, they were great deals. Wish we had cell phone cameras back then. Other than a couple of really old and faded tee shirts and maybe a couple of tattered ticket stubs, all I have are my somewhat equally faded memories. But they'z some good ones.

I once worked a concert at the old Mississippi River Festival (outdoor venue near STL). I parked cars before the show, went in during the show as security, and then let cars out afterwards.

Never had so many bottles thrown at me in my entire life. Tough crowd. 

I remember Greg Allman being really wasted.

I believe that I was at that same show, if it was in a tent venue called Music Carnival , right next to the Thistledown  racetrack.  Was a most excellent show.  My third ABB show by then.

Gregg's voice on this track and others from that era defines "raucous."

  Great story--It's awesome how a specific song can take you back to a wondrous individual moment in time.

Saw them at the 2nd Atlanta Pop Festival in July 1970.  They did this and "One Way Out" and "Whippin' Post".  Then rock and roll died on the back of Harley in October of 1971.  RIP, Duane.

This Is the best of the best no one gets even close these brothers and fiends where as tight as a band can be , blues, gospel,country. jazz., acoustic, instrumental and hard core rock! 
 this band has never been replaced and never will be tho there are those that are close but with out Dwayne and Berry its just not the same!
 I have wore out  this album/8 track/cassette/ CD  and working on the MP3 version, can your ware out a MP3 file?
