Haaa, just like memories and everything else that's diluted, distorted and degenerated by the passage
of Father Time....That fish I caught was 5 feet long and weighed 200 lbs!!!!....My 69 Nova did the quarter mile in
6 seconds at 250 mph!!!!....That chick I spent the night with in '72 looked like Raquel Welch!!!!....We once smoked
a joint 6 feet long dipped in cow **** and got an incredible buzz!!!! Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Time distorts everything, good, bad, indifferent....

Might just be listed because the agency booked the band on that date not knowing if there was a recording or not.

The copyright application says there is a CD.

"the stories of the legendary jams that lasted hours and hours are BS

The band had plenty of nights when they were hittin' it. I'm not sure, even if the show was taped, if it would be so immensely better than anything else."


I want to address this once more, with feeling, then I promise I will leave this topic alone forever and ever Amen.

I hear people say this all the time "Those hippies were on drugs! How can we trust them when they say this show was so special?"

Here's why: Many of these same hippies went to many other Allmans shows at the Fillmore East, and they were probably on drugs for those shows as well. Many of those people, including the kind gentleman who runs this website out of the goodness of his ABB-loving heart, say this was the best show they ever saw the original ABB play. I've read quotes where the band themselves support the idea that this show was special and exceptional.

Now if you want to call the ABB and a good chunk of their NYC fanbase a bunch of liars, knock yourself out, but I don't see any reason to doubt them. These are reliable expert witnesses in my opinion, and their testimony is good enough for me.

"if you want to call them liars"

False statement.

To Lie is to do so intentionally for some kind of gain.

The passage of time melting drug induced memories, and infusing those rose colored
purple haze lenses, hey that's REALISTIC. To say this has not happened is simply not
at all realistic. it has happened, the only question is to what degree.

I had no intention of dragging up old arguments, so I'm sorry for posting here. should've just started a new thread. Skeptics will be skeptics, believers will be believers...I'm interested in constructive discussion about figuring out if there's proof one way or another

I'm fairly certain you cannot apply and actually be issued a copyright on material that is just hypothetical in nature. In other words, there has to be some substance to justify the copyright. If there is no substantive material, i.e. there was never a recording of the show, then there is nothing to copyright. If the catalog says there is a CD sound recording, then that must have existed at the time the copyright was awarded.

Now, whether that recording actually is the fabled 6/26 show, that's an entirely different question. But these legal records clearly indicate some recording DID exist. There wouldn't be a copyright issued if didn't.

From what I heard early from one of the original books about the Allmans is that at some point during the show they just jammed....there was a supposed My favorite things and just a lot of blues type jams....they obviously didn't have 4 - 5 hours worth of material

A quote from Butch said...we played all of our songs and they shut the lights off and turned the mirror ball on and we just jammed for about 2 hrs...so an extra long show for a night like this can be explained and believed...The late show didn't actually start until 3am on 6/27 and they played until the sun came up...app 7am...so 2 hrs of their material and a 2 hr jam

Hey, I don't deal with belief - Easter Bunnies and Fairies are for childhood. Show me the goods.On
I 100% doubt there is any recording.

Since 6/26 and 6/27 started after midnight, I guess technically you could call them 6/27 and 6/28? I still wonder if the remaining shows 6/25 early and late and 6/26 early were ever recorded as I have heard that the remote recording truck was outside The Fillmore for all of those shows?

At the wheel, Willie reminisces to the fellow traveler about the band’s gig on the last paid-admission night at the Fillmore East: “Oh, my God, the boys was hittin’ the note for sure, brother. They smoked up the place till seven in the mornin’. That was a great place to play. The World Series of rock and roll.”

This is from Willie straight from the Grover Lewis article in Rolling Stone that came out right after Duane passed. So it was fresh in his mind when he said it here, Bill said they started at 3 or 3:30 am and Willie says they finished up at 7 am, that sounds good enough to me to believe it.

X2 -- Butch always recalled this show exactly to this effect , with it being light out after the gig was over & what righteous music it was etc

"That, to me, is the best gig we have ever played."
Butch as quoted in the mid70s biography by Tom Nolan
