Did brother B.O sing on any other songs other than Hoochie Coochie Man? I've heard that they were working on Trouble No More when they contacted Gregg, and Duane intended on having Jaimo and Berry be in a power trio, having Berry sing lead. And in the calender there is a thing where Gregg was sick so they had Berry sing on Trouble No More and a couple other songs. Anyone know anymore songs? And if they're recorded?

Oh Pretty Woman, which they never recorded, is the only other song Berry sang as far as I know bro. That song was in their setlist in some 1970s shows. It's not the Roy Orbison song BTW.

You can hear Oh, Pretty Woman (I think it's by Albert King) on 5/3/69, 5/2/70, and 7/17/70. The sound quality on the first of those, especially, is not too good, but it's the oldest traded ABB show. 5/2/70 is from Swarthmore College and is the only show I know of where Berry sang both Hoochie Coochie Man and Oh, Pretty Woman. It also has the rare Outskirts of Town and Every Hungry Woman.

It's also on their magical New Year's gig at The Warehouse on 12/31/70.

Did Berry sing in the Second Coming? Was there ever thoughts on him singing Standback that he co-wrote? Did he sing any other songs he wrote, if he wrote more? Like any solo songs? I've never heard BO having a solo carreer though.

There's a great picture of BO with Jerry G. in one of the past Hittin The Note magazines (a few years ago). Imagine if he had ever sat in with the Dead like the bros. Allman did (as well as the rest later). He and Phil Lesh -- two of the most melodic players ever.
Good comment Finsky -- hopefully the folks in the ARCHIVE heard it too (hint HINT!! .
Man have those archive releases rocked -- same with the current DVD & live current releases too.

Is this the same "Oh Pretty Woman" that was covered by Gary Moore in the late 80's / early 90's?

He did sit in with the Dead on (part of?) that 2/11/70 show with so many other guests. He might just be on Lovelight, but I think it's him.

That's impossible, as BO died in '72....is the date a typo?

Cool info Marley -- Berry Dickey & Jaimoe did sit in with the Dead in summer 1972 in Gaelic Park, Conn. -- I do believe.

In a Grateful Dead book there was something about a show (after Duane died, must have been '72) where Dickey, Berry and Jaimo sat in with the Dead, and then there was some festival or concert where the Dead played, and then the Allman's played, and it said Jerry got up while they(ABB) were doing a jam, and started doing Johnny B. Goode and Dickey just smoked him. There's also a picture of Dickey with Bob Weir in that book.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that berry sang Johnny B Good with the brothers once... and he sang background vocals on Blackhearted Woman and Midnight rider after Duane had passed...

I have several versions of the 6/27/71 show and on one mix there is clearly somoene singing backup on Midnight Rider. Someone (I assume Berry) says "Thank You" at the end and just before DA introduces Hot 'Lanta he says "Berry singing". Interestingly enough on all of the other versions of this show you can't hear any background. I'd listened to the song hundreds of times and never noticed it until Masahiko pointed it out to me but it's definitely there. I've since gone back and listened to other versions of MR from that era (CCNY, Brewer Field house etc.) and the background singing can be heard.

I think duane sang background on midnight rider. Berry obviously did after Duane passed. I am always surprised that with so many band members who could sing, (duane, dickey, berry, gregg,) that they didn't try out any three our four part harmony.

ok this has bugged me for years and maybe someone here can answer this. on the studio version of "blackhearted woman", during the break part, i swear that it's B.O. doing the vocal scat. can anyone confirm or disclaim this?

I believe you're partially right, it's Berry plus Duane & Dickey doing that part, then Berry with that laugh

wow Pam, thats a nice piece of info! I always thought it was Gregg that laughed there, it just kinda sounds like him in a way, but very neat. Is there any story to go behind that? Was Mike helping out on the harmonies in that part?

yep, it is. Phil talks about it in his book. Berry took over in the middle of Lovelight - by the end of the jam he blew out the amp.

I have a picture that came with the 7/26/70 show labelled "jammin at midnight" that I am almost certain is from 2/11/70
Pigpen and Bobby are at the mic, Duane is playing with his back to the camera. Gregg is on keys, Butch and Billy K on the kits, Berry in between them. I think Jerry is behind Billy, and Peter Green is up in front next to PP.

just figured out how to upload it - I think. I bet others have seen this before.

5/09/70 Ga Tech also has the same 4 tunes, with Berry singing Hoochie Coochie Man and Oh Pretty Woman. sound is poor.
