Goldflies was very different than Berry Oakley and Lamar, but I must say he was an absolute monster in Great Southern, and also in some of the ABB shows I saw. I don't know what Gregg's opposition was, i can only surmise that Goldflies' style was his concern


I recall Gregg said something about Goldflies being "paid by the note" or overplaying, something along those lines. I thought Gregg threw a lot of passive aggressive shade in his book, but that's what memoirs are for.

Rook was solid, but the late 1970s was a different time for music, even Phil Lesh played some disco-inspired bass. Goldflies still plays around south Florida, and even recently teamed up with Gregg & Duane's cousin (no I am not joking) - keyboardist and singer, Gary Allman. Though I think Goldflies is since sans Gary.

Here they are in action: https://www.pbs.org/video/allman-goldflies-band-ylw9b6/

Three guesses which one is Mr. G. Allman

On the left? Yes a couple of times in interviews and in the book Gregg said Goldflies "must have thought he was being paid by the note". Meaning to Gregg he over played or played too much.

But Dickey must have liked him. Dickey was a HUGE Berry Oakley fan and tried to get later bass players to think like Oakley. Gregg said Allen Woody got tired of Dickey doing that.

I think that is also the reason he is a big fan of Pedro Arevalo's style

Pops42..On Enlightened Rogues Dickey is the right stereo side and Dan is left. Dan takes the 1st lead on Pegasus and Blind Love. All the other guitar leads are Dickey’s.
Personally I can tell them apart.

I think the first solo on Can’t Take it With You is Dan. I think.

Too bad Chuck Leavell and Lamar Williams opted to stay with Sea Level after the Brothrrs and Sisters line up played at the 1978 Capricorn picnic. Enlighten Rogues would have been a different album. According to Gregg's book Gregg didnt care for David Goldflies on bass.



I always find that lineup fascinating to listen to. I wonder why they never played Jelly Jelly live?

Jelly Jelly was the only one I never saw them play live. One Pony boy I saw was an I instrumental from that lineup. When they began writing about Brothers and Sisters in the magazines when it became the number one, best selling, album in America, Jelly Jelly was a hybrid of sorts. On that song the band got the music recorded the way they wanted it but Gregg recorded his own words and called it Early Morning Blues by Gregg Allman . I never read exactly why Gregg decided to re-record his vocals with words by Trade Martin and Billy Eckstine and took away his writing credit. A writing credit on an album that sold as many copies as Brothers and Sisters equaled a lot of money. Let me check Gregg's book.

That lineup did Lonetime Gone from Dickey's solo album but Chuck Leavell sang the first verse. I saw them do Whipping Post then straight into Mountain Jam a few times too.

". Without Betts' hit machine EAP wouldn't have happened, the ABB would not have broken through with Brothers and Sisters. Duane, not a songwriter and in high demand as a blazing talent on the ascent, would not have spent too much more time in a band on the chitlin circuit, with lesser guitar players skyrocketing all around him in the early 70s. He would almost surely have been compelled to move on to work with leading lights in the industry - possibly into production. Of course impossible to know, but interesting to speculate on. If we were placing betts I'd lay odds that "Southern Rock" never would have happened. "


You're saying that without a single song,ramblin man you'd lay ofds "rock rock" wouldn't have happened?
I gotta disagree. Lotta music was brewing, all the southern rock gitar players were aware of Duane.

A more interesting question is what the ABB might have done in a post Dickey, still Duane universe. I don't at all see Duane moving to the studio. He may have started playing more with the jazz guys, or imagine Chuck and Duane.

GA had laid back fermenting, by LAFE. Ain't Wastin' Time, and Standbsck is strong. Melissa was a hit. Duane may have started writing instrumentals.

It may have served the band in the long run to have missed out on private jet tours.

Given Jimmy, Derek,Warren,Jack - there were other players out there.

Dickey was a tremendous talent, would he have had a platform and/or a hit without the ABB?

He made a strong contribution. He's not all all the whole show. He wasn't the same as Fogerty to CCR. He wasn't there whole show.
