The Allman Brothers Band
Clear all

High Falls search, Allman Brothers or Dickey or Derek

Peach Pit

The truly wonderful High Falls has gotten into my head, running 'round and 'round, and I am on a mission to find all recordings of this by the Allman Brothers or by Dickey or Derek

So far I have it on
1975 ABB: Win, Lose or Draw
1976 ABB: Nassau Coliseum (mono? poor recording)
1978 Great Southern: Rockpalast
1978 Great Southern: Essen
2000 ABB: Peakin' at the Beacon (does this include Dickey?)
ABB 50th Anniversary, Trouble No More (is this from the Win, Lose or Draw)

Any other versions, recordings would be wonderful. Thank you

There are countless versions - 9/23/2000 w/Jimmy is mentioned as a definitive live one - DB&GS started their shows with it for a few years, incl Oct 2008 Cannon Mtn NH - which I’m sure is the coldest gig he ever played 😉

Nothing tops the studio version for me, esp w/Jaimoe up in the mix like he was - high Falls was a high Point for his & Butch’s playing - the whole band shines

Am also partial to 11/25/75 RI, was there, also their only show I know of w/all 4 instrumentals (w/EReed, Les Brers & Jessica)

There are several great versions of High Falls during the Jack Pearson/Dickey period on audience recordings.  All that I have heard are stellar.  Dickey and Warren did some excellent versions during the 1997 Beacon Run.  Derek and Warren on 3/17/2001 is also excellent.
