check this out. From Atlanta 5.23.70, played as the encore.

Given that this is on the Peach Cobbler Vol. 6 (Mountain Jam) disc, can we say that the Peach Cobbler #6 is 5.23.70 which was either in Atlanta or Decatur (according to the gig calendar on this site)?

Equally also, since Duane says "This is our home town...", maybe it was the 5.22.70 gig at the Opera House Macon.

P.S. Could someone do a breakdown of these shows in terms of sound quality?

I've got some which are soundboards and sound as good as anything officially released (the A&R Studio set, any of the shows in Wolfgang's Vault) and some audience tapes which really ain't so great (the Central Park shows, Duane's last recorded show at the Syria Mosque).

That way I can make sure that I got all the good-sounding gigs and know what to expect from the rest.

Thanks either way, this is a great place to be and a great place to get the finest tunes from one of the greatest guitarists.

Not sure if you are aware of these:

http://www.hittinthenote.com/cart/c-50-abb-archival-cds.aspx

It's kind of tough to rate the sound on what's trading imho. If they were allowed electronic trading it would be easier to compare which version of a show sounds best.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah, I have most of those (not the 73 one 'cos for me without Duane it just ain't the same; I got the 72 one to hear what the 5 man band souded like, but all I can hear is Duane's absence). I also have the Grateful Dead Fillmore 70 disc and Ludlow. Hell, I got Fillmore East and Eat a Peach in regular, deluxe 2CD versions AND Mobile Fidelity gold-plated master sound thing! How's that for keen?

Also you might have misunderstood my comment. I'm not talking about which VERSION of a particular gig sounds best, I'm interested in which GIGS exist in good quality (soundboard) recordings.

For example the last recorded Duane gig at the Syria Mosque is a fairly rough audience recording (call it a C- grade) and will NEVER sound as good as the A&R Studio set (A grade). Whereas the Warehouse 9.16.71 gig (B+) isn't a soundboard BUT sounds much better than, say, the Central Park recordings (another C grade).

That way I can find out if I have most of the best gigs, or if there are any great-sounding tapes that I've yet to get.

Like I said, thanks for the input, much appreciated.

I know what you mean -- have 3/23/72 Price Hall & 4/7 Syracuse, & Duane's absence simply looms too large -- same thing the B&S gatefold cover -- no Duane or Berry

hoping it helps, 7/26/70 Stonybrook, most of 2/28/71 Brewer Fldhse., 3/20/71 Warehouse, the Jan. 1971 show from the Syria Mosque, which Duane pays tribute to Taj Mahal at the start of
...anyways those are good-sounding boots that come to mind...

Someone traded me a show that said it was 9/26/71 and it actually was what's circulated as 10/15/71, on the end of the disc were 3 soundboard versions of the songs, Statesboro or Trouble No More (I forget which one it was), One Way Out and Liz Reed. Good clear sound, I'd give it a B++, maybe even an A-. Not sure if there's more or if the taper just taped a few songs and only had limited tape.

F'instance I just got the Piedmont Park 1970 vine and HAD there been a grading system this woulda been a C- and I wouldn't have signed up for it.


What with the hiss, the hum, the crackles, the crowd chatter, the bangs and bumps and general Not Great Quality Recording To Start With it's surprising that the faint ghost of some music way, way in the distance comes through at all.

It's like this: Duane was one of the all time greats; there is so little official material with him on that if you dig him you gotta get some live recordings; some are gonna be better quality, some worse, that's okay 'cos that's how life goes.

All I'm asking for is for someone who knows the shows to do a general rating of the available shows so that those of us who don't want EVERYTHING with Duane on know which are gonna sound great, which are gonna sound good enough and which are gonna result in more frustration than enlightenment.

Some great shows include:
70.2.11 Fillmore East,
70.2.14 Fillmore East,
70.7.10 SUNY,
70.9.23 Fillmore East,
71.1.17 Syria Mosqe,
71.1.29 Winterland,
71.1.31 Fillmore West,
71.2.28 Columbia,
71.3.20 Warehouse,
71.8.26 A&R Studios

(Not including the officially released stuff or a few great Warehouse gigs that aren't quite grade A recordings (but are STILL great).)

So does anyone out there know of great quality (talking in terms of RECORDING quality, not MUSICAL quality ('cos anything with Duane gotta be great music)) recordings out there that I've not listed?

Thanks in advance and apologies for the rant.

Your list just about covers it, as far as shows I'm familiar with
Gems, one & all -- freely traded -- what can be better

but as far as "Duane Era ABB Recordings"

none are better than 40 years ago tonite
thank you brother for the King Curtis album mention -- & the YDLM/Soul Serenade segue -- they refined it from what Midnight Riders said was "a very rough incorporation" days earlier at an "open-field show in Boston",* to this amazing, improvised music on the A&R tape

*that would've been from "the other" show they played at the Boston Common -- the one w/J. Geils (guitarist) sitting in on Stormy Monday -- & possibly Blue Sky? -- thank you HTN, for the one that Was released is Sellar & if another 1970-71 show ever were to be archived & released & from those same tapes -- what a companion piece that would be!!!
Yikes, sorry for the going-off

Stephen and leftyguit,

don't listen to the 5-man band shows and be missing Duane.

listen and hear Dickie Betts playing his ass off and Berry Oakley stepping up his amazing bass playing.

i rank 3-23-72 right up there as one of my favorite shows. the band is on fire.

lefty i know what you mean about identifying the good sounding shows. those are generally my 'go to' listening as well. there are some pretty rough recordings out there.

( i know this is frowned upon by the trading community) but you can also EQ those rough recordings and clean up the sound into a reasonably listenable state. for my own listening enjoyment, i do this. (and everyone relax, i distinctly mark my versions and i don't trade them) but if it gets you to listen to rough shows that would otherwise sit there neglected, i say go for it.

I didn't get to see the band for the first time until 1973 (born just a little bit too late, I guess), and I too missed the sound of Duane and Berry, having nothing but the records to go on (they hadn't released a record w/o Berry yet). But time has eroded my bias and I've accepted those shows for what the were. My favorite 5 piece show is 4/14/72.
Listen to Dickey's solo on YDLM. That's pure emotion.

Steve,
I also unfortunately didn't see the band with Duane. I first saw them I think it was 4/14/72 which was the Friday night of that run at The Academy of Music. I thought they sounded just like they did on "Eat A Peach". It was day light when we got out.. Wow! I can't believe it's been almost 40 years. Was just playing 2-28-71 Brewer Field House today. I can't believe that I can still listen to the same songs over and over again for 40 years and I NEVER tire of them. I more then hope that more soundboards will surface before we hit the big stereo in the sky.

seriously anyone with 9/26 and 10/15 compare One Way Out and Liz Reed. Dickey does this same weird note in his solo and his solo is oddly short in both IMOERs. Same sounding intro to both Liz Reeds too, something with the organ.

it probably is the same recording, just with different dates. happens waaaaay more often than you'd like.

that would mean either there is SBD parts of one of Duane's last shows which is commonly traded as a B/B- show or Duane's last recorded, or next to last recorded show was 9/26 and that nothing exists from 10/71.
I think the show is from 10/15 though since other tapes from PA were recorded and that probably means there was a big fan there with taping gear.

I think all copies of "10/02/71" should be further investigated because something from that really may be from 10/71. Seems like there would be at least 1 taper at the Whiskey in LA after AFE was released.

Yeah, and I heard that one was a burner, with a great "Blue Sky"....
I saw a couple of the Winterland shows right around that same time, and it's surprising nothing emerged from that run....

Wow -- now That would be an archive release to die for -- a previously-uncirculated/suddenly-unearthed SBD of this CA run, Esp. w/a BSky -- I love the photo from this period, w/the 6 of them, Duane wearing shades, dwarfed by an LA freeway in the background -- it's some motley & road hardened looking crew

there's no such animal though -- if there were it would've been -- no archive release is going to make a ton of $ so there's no reason to withold anything that might be out there -- on the other hand, so much of what the original ABB did in its 2+ years is out there -- there just was never another band like it

This is so fine,it's impossible to find words for Duane's massive greatness,clearly seeming to peak...IMHO,this raises the intensity level beyond FE....the whole band is performing at a different place and time than can ever be replicated,imitated,or relived.A moment in time.....wow.....
