One Way Out, was 12, heard it crankin away in my big brother's room and them all yelling over the music, I sat there outside the door just floored. When they all split I went in and listened to the record again. When he let slip he was going to Watkins Glen I pretty much forced him to let me tag along. Wow, One Way Out, hearing that rolling over the field, just brought it all together. That tune, all of them, are time-portals to a summer dream of laughter, dancing, kind folks,just pure fun and easygoing laid back good times.

Can't say for sure. Just from classic rock FM radio in my mid-teens I was taking it all in. It's 1990 and you are hearing all this music from a couple decades ago...you have alot of catching up to do, so it was kind of overwhelming, I was more into hard rock and metal at that point, but definitely listening to lots of classic rock.

The ABB as they were recording in that early 90s period actually had a bigger impact on me initially than any song from the hay-day. The Where It All Begins album is what really hit me and pulled me in. Then from there I "discovered" the Duane-era albums and everything else beyond the scope of a greatest hits release.

I kinda follow into the same path. I was a teenager in mid to late 80's.Just heard the hits from the ABB and that's all I was familiar with. Really did not know too much of they're catalog besides the radio staples.

What got me hooked and really a big fan is when I heard Good Clean Fun the summer of 1990.
Great opening song and riff. After that it just opened up another world of music to me. Shame we did not get more studio stuff from them in the 90's and 2000's ,but they put on some great live shows I will never forget.
God Bless The ABB!

IMOER, along with the story about how the band formed, being " strongly encouraged "by Duane.
It really changed what i liked in music.

I had probably heard Ramblin Man when I was a kid on AM radio, so technically that would be it. But I didn't "get" them until a few years later. When I was growing up near Harrisburg, PA in the late 1970's/early 1980's there was a radio station called WTPA FM104. There is still a station with those call letter but it is not at the same frequency and bears little resemblance to the original station. Anyway, they used to have Album Side Sundays and I remember hearing the Whipping Post from At Fillmore East on the radio one day when I was 11 or 12; something like that. I remember it being around the same time Jerry Garcia - Run For The Roses had just came out because they played one side of that too the same day and they said it was a promo copy that didn't even have artwork, just a plain white cardboard album jacket.

Anyway, heck of an introduction!

Would have been the fall of '70 when I was a junior at college . Someone I lived with went nuts over the boys. The ABB played at our school at that time. I didn't see them though. I'm guessing the first songs would have been from the first album "The ABB" - Don't Want You No More" and IAMCTB. The next batch of songs would have been Idlewild South. I didn't get addicted until '72 when Eat A Peach came out. 45 years later I still play them quite often.

I was a teenager in the 1990s, but with 2 older brothers and parents of the 1960s, I was discovering music from decades past through all of them. I grabbed one of my brother's 1970s R&R mix that had "Midnight Rider" on it and really dug it (no doubt I had heard it before), so my brother bought me a used copy of A Decade of Hits for my birthday. Just a few weeks later "No One to Run With" was all over the radio. To support their new album, The Allman Brothers were on Letterman, so I was stoked to hear their new hit, only to be completely surprised by some cowboy singing "Back Where It All Begins" and it blew me away.

I was hooked. Within a few years I had picked up their whole catalog. Great time to get into the Allman Brothers.

Probably Ramblin Man or Jessica in the 1980s.

I was born in '69. My older brothers were bigger Skynyrd, ARS, Bad Company, Van Halen fans in the late 70s/early '80s and didn't latch on to the ABB 1979-1982 reunion. Rossington Collins forming was a bigger deal than the ABB reuniting.

By the time I was becoming a teenage music fanatic, the ABB were in the Arista years and then broken up for 7 years. I paid some attention to the new Gregg solo releases in 1987 and 1988 but they didn't grab me. I'd call myself a greatest hits fan up to that point with Dickey's sound in Melissa, Jessica, Ramblin Man being what interested me most. I didn't even realize they did 2 reunion shows in 1986 (whereas Skynyrd reuniting and touring 1987 was a big deal for me and my buddies in the Class of '87).

But hearing Good Clean Fun and Seven Turns title track on the radio the week before that album dropped in 1990 was what really got me. They now sounded like old school Allman Brothers. I lucked into great seats a week later and I've been on that train ever since.

One Way Out. A friend of mine went to a prep school in Wilbraham, MA. At each table in the cafeteria they had one of those old fashioned ( now ) table top mini juke boxes where you put in a dime and the song you selected played for you. One Way Out was the overwhelming favorite. This friend also had LAFE, to which we both listened frequently. That was in the mid '70's.

Black Hearted Woman on SF's no jive 95...I had no idea who they were and didn't make connection until I bought the first album years later...The first song I heard that I knew was them...Ramblin Man as it was played so much and the band name was always said after the song ended

In 1969, when I was 16, I had a friend who was an excellent guitar player who used to play Beatles, Stones, etc. I turned him onto the blues (my older brother had turned me onto Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, etc.) and he fell in love with it. One day, he showed me a new record and said I would like it because it was a great mix of rock and blues. I'm pretty sure it was a 45 and the song was Black-hearted Woman. I really liked it throughout, and then that outro -- just when you think the song is over -- blew me away. I bought the album and loved it, then bought Idlewild South and loved it more and then bought Fillmore East and that was it -- I was an ABB disciple for life.

"Ramblin Man" was an AM rock radio staple in the 1970s. I remember my parents, who didn't really like popular music other than John Denver and Barry Manilow, singing along to "Ramblin Man" in the station wagon on family trips.

I bought "Eat A Peach" in 1984 and have been on an Allmans tear ever since.

Senior year, hitchhiking after school, Clearwater, FL. Picked up by a friend. He pops in an 8track, DWYNM blasting. Mind blown.

"Who is that?"

"A new band called the Allman Brothers."

My uncle was singing Ramblin Man spring of 74, I was 12 at the time. He took me/cousin fishing
and was real cool. I quickly found Blue Sky, One Way Out and the rest has been a lifelong fan, appreciation.

Statesboro was my introduction to The Brothers . It was at a birthday party at school near the end of 8th grade -1974 . Teacher brought in a record player and my buddy Roger brought in AFE. After school I went home and wore out my brother's copies of the first 2 albums . I'll never forget my mother in the kitchen dancing to Elizabeth Reed while she was cooking.

One Way out was my first song on an eight track. Played Eat a Peach over and over again while I was supposed to be doing homework. I was probably in the 9th grade, having just started my relationship with cannabis.

I bought Beginnings at a record store, had heard that these guys were good.

Rumor was right.

Don't know what I heard first but Cross to Bear sealed the deal for me.

Revival. But it was being performed by a cover band. Didn't know it was an ABB tune until someone told me. First ABB song I heard performed by the ABB was Liz Reed. After that I was hooked for good.
