Amazing show, simply amazing. The run in the middle of the show, Who’s Been Talking, Stormy Monday, Dreams, Rockin Horse/Gambler’s Roll, was on a par with anything in the history of the band. Then the Mountain Jam and Layla encore were right there again. I’ve never heard Warren play guitar better, ever! Derek during those last 2 tunes was ——— jeez, I dunno, what adjectives describe him. I’m stumped. The drums soloed in One Way Out, very cool. The only way the show could have been any better would have been a second encore, they still had plenty of time til curfew.
On the way home to Columbus I was trying to place this one in my list of great ABB shows. It was easily the best I’ve heard since Dickey’s departure. Perhaps the best since ’95. Incredible. I was just starting to think that this had become a super-talented, tight blues band, that didn’t jam like the old days. Then they drop this show on me. Words don’t describe. Long live the Allman Brothers Band!
