Very good cover. Nice Gregg vocals and the lead must be Jimmy Herring. The Boz Scaggs Duane Allman version is impossible to top but this is close.

Nice to hear Gregg's vocals on this but the guitars' pacing just seem to drag compared to Duane's fluidity on the original.

Thanks for posting! I love how Jimmy enters this solo, holding the one note for 10 seconds through the break-up into feedback. I think it was the Huntsville show at the end of the tour when he about knocked me over doing that. I was able to get up front close to stage - I recall it being a general admission festival - and it was great to see the Derek/Jimmy/Oteil interaction.

I love the original w/Duane and the horn section building and building. Greggs' voice on this one is powerful.

Jimmy was in a tough spot. At first Butch ask him to help them save the 2000 summer tour while Dickey gets straighten out with his personal issues and band issues. Jimmy was doing a good job filling in for Dickey as others ( except Zach Wilde) did in 1993. But suddenly Dickey sued the band and charged Jimmy with impersonating him and playing Dickey's songs while doing it. As soon as the tour ended Butch told Jimmy the gig was his because Dickey sued the band and az far as they are concerned it's over with Dickey. Jimmy was very uncomfortable with that and told the press that nobody had replaced a living Allman Brother before and Dickey's solo on One Way Out on Eat A Peach is one of Jimmy's favorites and Jimmy said he was way uncomfortable with this deal and turned it down.

Actually David Toler replaced a living Allman Brother in 1980 when he was hired to replace Jaimoe after Jaimoe was voted out by Dickey, Gregg and Butch. All three regretted that vote soon afterward and when they played two shows in 1986, Jaimoe was back.

Great vocal by one of the masters! Wonderful B-3 as well. Jimmy did a fine job with the guitar work. Derek, as always, played it in his unmistakable way. The Jimmy and Derek version of the band was great while it lasted, they obviously had a whole lot of fun playing together in the ABB as they did/do other bands. I'd never heard this before. Thank you to the poster.

Thanks for bumping this one up Don, I LOVE this! And fortunately I got to hear them do it that year, 2000.

It is a nice version. I'm very passionate about Gregg's vocals but to be fair I hesitate to says it's better than Boz Scaggs. The guitar playing is nice too but seems to drag or be out of sync in a few places. Maybe I should listen again. I just now listened to the original and this doesn't top the original mostly because of Duane Allman.

Duane Allman was the best guitar player ever in the ABB. Dickey, Warren, Derek etc never matched Duane's energy and power. Duane could make people in a nursing home get up and dance. As Charlie Daniel's said "Anyone who can listen to Duane Allman at the beginning of Statesboro Blues and not get carried away to music heaven has to be deaf "

Duane IS the Allman Brothers. He founded the band, was the energy and inspiration the other 5 were inspired by. He was the cornerstone of the band and from 1971 to 2014 Gregg, Butch and Jaimoe said they could feel his presence. As Keith Richards said about the Rolling Stones, if Duane Allman hadn't come along, I wonder if we would even know who Gregg, Butch, Jaimoe and the rest are? Keith said he would like to think he would have had some kind of success without the Stones but he wasn't sure. Gregg said the same about his brother. And Dickey too mused about that. "I would like to think I would have been successful without being in the AB but I don't know. Feeding off the energy of Duane and Berry made me a better musician ".

I imagine Warren would be known today to some degree but no question being in the ABB put him on the map. Duane Allman is the foundational inspiration of Derek's style. It just may be we wouldn't be listening to any of the guys that passed through the ABB today if Duane had not put the ABB together.

In all kindness,
Why are you trying to compare a studio version of a song to a live / YouTube recorded on a phone likely under rehearsed, with special guests?

WaitingForRain. Are you saying they selected a track recorded with a cell phone from the audience to put on the 50th Anniversary Box Set?

I listened to the link in the first post. I thought it was at least a soundboard recording or perhaps a audio truck outside the venue. I can hear Gregg's vocals and the guitar solos just fine. As good as 1st Set, 2nd Set, Peakin' At The Beacon and One Way Out.

You are talking about the recording that is linked uptop that is from the 50th boxset?

If we're talking about original versions, it's Fenton Robinson's song. >>

https://youtu.be/k-d9VL6NioU

The Boz arrangement is really interesting. I guess he did that. Wish I knew for sure. Some more research to do here. Fenton also played the guitar on Larry Davis' original "Texas Flood," which Stevie copies pretty exactly. A giant in his own right.

This is a nice discovery. Fenton plays his notes often fast and with lots of feeling. Uses the so called "blues take" lick often. Dickey Betts use to do it often too on bluesy songs and often would rake up and down or rake up while moving his left hand quickly down the neck.

I can hear Stevie Ray Vaughn's style in Fenton's playing.

I didn't buy but one Box Scaggs album, the one with Lodi, so had not heard Lone Me A Dime until I bought Duane Allman Anthology in 1972. I recall the name Fenton Robinson. Maybe from the writing credit on the album. I always read everything on a album.

Tonight is my first time to hear Fenton play and sing. Thanks.

I remember Duane Allman turning me on to Chico Hamilton. He says it on an album I have but right now can't remember which. Duane: "Chico Hamilton is here tonight also. Y'all may not know who this is..
We know who that is...Yeah I figured some of you would know who that is".

Sorry blackey you were right to correct me!
After I listened to the album version I found an audience vid
and then referred to that rather than your original link.

But and

I still don't see the point in analyzing.... Whatever plus you in the groove bro

You're welcome. Thank you! This made my day. Fenton was one of those really underrated, under the radar cats. A little too jazzy to cash in on rock fans looking for blues heroes... a little too mellow and laidback to put himself in the spotlight... liked to keep his secrets and would even turn away from the crowd to play some great licks so no one could see his hands. Bruce Iglauer from Alligator Records told me one of the happiest days of his life was when he handed Fenton a $25k royalty check for "Loan Me A Dime" form the Boz version... he had never received a penny.

It's a great song which Boz made his own, and Duane made a classic. I'm glad the ABB played it for a while and very happy it was included in this box set.

Fenton's version is also the first song heard in The Blues Brothers. It plays on the radio as Jake is walking down the cell block starting at 1:30
