The Allman Brothers

Man, I borrowed a bunch of CD's from a friend and among them was The Allman's 'Hittin' the Note' - I thought it was a new release but it was put out in 2003 - it's all I've been listening to since I got it last week -

It's some of the best I've heard from them - rivals 'Eat a Peach' IMO -

Daaayuuummm...makes me wanna twist one and grab a case like the old days....

BTW, any of you musicologists know what 'Eat a Peach' refers to?

I thought it was a Macon city bus--or was that Berry Oakley?

There's a remixed "Live at the Fillmore East" album out, a double CD with all of the live cuts from "Eat a Peach" on it, supposedly all in the order they were actually played. Segues right into Mountain Jam at the end of Whipping Post on disc 2. Some throwaway studio piece is included at the end.

Your both Mistaken...did you read the post I put up.

It ain't about "talking to the little man in the boat" or Duane hitting a Peach Truck.

"Alas, the real answer is not quite so literary. The title is an allusion to a statement Duane Allman once made during a magazine interview:

The myth was that the band used the title because Duane had crashed into a peach truck when he died; in truth, it came from one of Duane's throwaway lines in an interview. "How are you helping the revolution?" Ellen Mandel of Good Times Magazine had asked him. "I'm hitting a lick for peace," Duane responded. "And every time I'm in Georgia, I eat a peach for peace."

This explanation is supported by the album's back cover, which features a drawing of a railroad flatcar carrying an enormous watermelon, with the words "EAT A PEACH FOR PEACE" appearing along the top curve of the melon."

Thanks for posting the link, TDF. Interesting read. I couldn't believe that Oakley was actually up and walking around declining treatment after hitting the bus. If it happened today, he may have been saved.

If you are a fan of the A. Bros. Band don't overlook these guys. They had many former members. A top notch band headed by Chuck Leavell. I saw them front row back in the day at the Paradise and I still remember the show, awesome. All their albums are fantastic and are as good as any A. B. B. album. Unfortunately most of my stuff is on vinyl but I have located a lot on Limewire.

Another guy I have to give a heads up to if you like the A. B. sound is Les Dudek. He played on a few Allman B. albums with his guitar work. He plays a great slide with a sound similar to Duane. He also did a lot of work with Boz Skaggs. Look him up and enjoy some really great sound. Both albums below are fantastic. BTW he was born in Quonset Point,R.I.

Saw them this summer. Greg Allman, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, and others are still pretty impressive. Derek Trucks can really shred. Saw him play with Clapton a few years back and apparently they didn't let him out of his shell then. He ripped it with the Allmans. Great show. Wish it was a little longer, but then again most of the guys were in their 60s.

Chuck Leavell and Sea Level - good stuff

Yup, got some of that on vinyl too...

Thanks, gotta check out Les Dudek - can't believe anyone famous was actually born in Quonset Point ...not that there's anything wrong with that, just never met anyone who said they were from there -

If you need some I can burn some for you. He is quite the player. Played on the Bros. and Sisters album. Chuck Leavell did also. Les D. played the lead on Rambling Man believe it or not and he also played acoustic on Jessica. Probably didn't think Dickey was up to it maybe after the death of the other guitarists, so they bought in a ringer for this album I guess.

That would be great - don't know what you'd like to swap for it, let me know

I've been thinking of picking up a turntable for converting some vinyl to digital files - any suggestions, Paul?

I just saw a set up at BJ's last week. You get the turntable and all the stuff to hook it to your Computer for like 75 bucks. I am sure it isn't the best you can buy but it might be good enough. I almost bought it. I've got several hundred albums but have duplicated most of them buying CD's and using several illegal downloading sites over the years. I have a fellow member supposedly going to do just that. I gave him some albums a while ago but have not heard from him in quite a while. He doesn't post here much anymore. Canalman, did I say that. Maybe he will read this post and let me know how it is coming or just say Hi. Guilt may work. Sorry Dave.
