Is there a better sound system test cd around? Allmans, Dowd, digital.
Anyway, I know how frustrating it is that this outstanding album is out of print. When he was little, my son scratched my disc right in the middle of 'Nobody Knows' and it drives me crazy. 'An Evening With' has a better version, and I have the studio version on several compilations, but it still irritates me that I can't just load the disc and hit play.
Don't think they ever played this live. Maybe but I don't know if they did.
There is a very simple solution to your problem as long as you don't mind purchasing a used copy of Shades of Two Worlds. I know because I just checked. Go to www.ebay.com. Do a search for Allman Brothers Shades of Two Worlds CD. You will find multiple buying options for used copies there under $8.00.
Just listened to this the other day on a road trip still dig it!
Shades Of Two Worlds is available as part of the Original Album Classics series.
Seven Turns, Shades, Where It All Begins, First & Second Set for around $20.
It don't get no better than that!
