    From these guys:

    Check out this cut of "You Don't Love Me" from the June Fillmore Show.
    Duane and Dickey take turns playing cadenzas.

    Fast forward to 5:48-8:48 for Duane on the darkburst.
    Dickey on Goldie 8:49-13:59.

    You Don't Love Me-Fillmore June 1971

    If you haven't heard this 6 disc set of all the ABB 1971 Filmore shows, take the time to check it out. The recordings sound different than the original release. Different EQ or mastering or something along those lines.

    Dickey's tone is so much nastier than the original recording.
    The power of the combo of those guitars and amps! Wow.

    And as a bonus, the first disc in the set has the tracks with the sax player sitting in. Those cuts will bend your ear, for sure....lol

    I always though Dickey got some of the best LP tone in the business. This is awesome.

    Thanks for the info on the CD set Bottleneck,

    I saw them 3 mos. later, and I have always preferred Dickey's tone to Duanes. Dickey used the Goldtop for the whole show(s). The opening band band never showed so the guys did two whole shows. Duane used the SG for much of the slide material.
    I've seen many live acts/concerts (since 1962) but that show is still my favorite to this day. The whole band was just super tight, and dynamic.
    A few of us got to talk to Duane, Barry,and Greg for awhile between shows and they were very accessible.
    The ABB is still one of my favorite bands.

    Off topic...During the first set the campus security guys went up on stage and told them they had to put out their cigarettes :)naughty: sniff sniff), which they did for about 10 minutes.

    I prefer my Allmans without the sax, or harmonica for that matter. :D

    Late 90's I had a bunch of bootleg cassettes...with an OUTSTANDING version of Dreams..check out the Ludlow Garage performance as well:

    Due to popular request here on MLP!
    The most bizarre ABB recording you've ever heard!

    He twiddles a bit in the intro then the solo starts at 9:30.
    Fast Forward to 9:30 then hold on to your ears

    ^^^Spotify is free and worth it. Similar to Pandora but you choose exactly what you want to listen to. I can't recommend it enough. There's a premium version, but the free is great.

    My favorite Allman Brothers song is "Whipping Post" - man I love that song, watching Duane rip into fluid virtuoso solos makes him one of THE best live guitarists ive ever heard.

    Dickey's tone was nastier in the June Fillmore shows than in March, and it stayed that way through the fall '71 shows. It almost sounds as if he went from 100w to 50w Marshalls.
