Cool that it is being released. I guess I was hoping or wanting like an official band release with a nice packaging dvd bluray with audio cd and a t shirt would have been cool. Oh well, beggars cant be choosers.

I'm with you on that and I would say that I have no working knowledge of official decisions being made, but I think you will get your wish eventually. Especially in a year where none of these musicians are going to make a dime playing live concerts.

I bet by the time the holidays roll around we will have a nice CD/DVD/BluRay combo of that show. I'm actually counting on it.

I guess I will check out the Nugs.tv rebroadcast, but I'd certainly prefer a blu ray.

Looks like an official CD release, though. I'm ordering that option. I can then upload the audio and have a streaming and physical copy.

Full hi def DVD release would be nice too.

Keep in mind if it's through Nugs.net, it likely won't be a silver pressed CD, but a CD-R release.

I wonder what the actual physical copy will be like. If it was going to be the typical nugs.net release, why wasn't it available within 48 hours of the show? I figured it was going to be an actual normal release that would go to the record stores because it was taking so long. Add another head-scratcher to the long list...

I also wonder why they can't put out some of the archival shows that have been begged for on this forum on nugs.net as downloads. The band is already selling other shows on nugs.net, and not having to manufacture physical copies would surely make it a less risky financial venture.

Audio CD pre-ordered. Yep, I'm somewhat surprised by this release as well. An
elaborate CD/DVD/BR issue I thought was a fait accompli. I've ordered
several Springsteen archival CDs through Nugs - the only drag is the interminable
wait until they arrive up here in the wilds of Canada.

I tried ordering this thing 3 times today on the Nugs website. Each time it told me to confirm my billing address, which I would then re-type. I had already entered my debit card info, so I have no idea why my billing address was so important. I gave up after getting pretty irritated. Guess Ill have to hope and wait for a blu-ray release as well.

I won't buy it mainly because there is only one original band member on it.

That said, I finally got to watch it last night because my friend Don ordered the original broadcast and called me to come over last night and see the re-broadcast for the first time.

I am somewhat shocked by what I heard. Don pretty much summed it up, "I can't remember hearing one single note out of place" and I agree 100%. For two guys named Duane Trucks and Reese Wynans to sit in so entirely seamlessly in a 3-1/2 hour set was mind-boggling to say the least. Add in Chuck Leavell for about 1/2 the show..............definitely worth seeing and hearing.

Every person on that stage was ready to play. 100% locked in. Derek playing Duanes goldtop was icing on the cake. One of the best shows Ive ever seen.

yeah.... knew itd be great and had some good friends attend; I wanted to but just had a baby. What they pulled off was jaw-dropping. That was as inspired and in incendiary as it gets...period. An absolute triumph.

Yes those guys did a very good job playing a tribute to the Allman Brothers Band and it's music. A band and legacy those musicians clearly respect and hold in high esteem. It was a very fine show.

But it isn't the Allman Brothers Band. I would never play that show thinking I was playing an Allman Brothers Band show. No Gregg, no Duane, no Dickey, no Berry, no Butch. Blue Sky doesn't ring true without Dickey's voice and unique unmistakable guitar style and tone. Gregg's voice is absolutely crucial to an Allman Brothers show.

I use to think Derek Trucks was the second coming of Duane Allman. But Derek is more different than I thought. Since the virus and home I began comparing their solos on the same ABB songs. For one thing I noticed Derek likes to run his slide down the neck often. Sometimes after just a few notes over and over. Duane doesnt do that. I'll just leave it at that because Derek is great slide player in his own right and he says Duane Allman and a little Elmore James are the foundation of his style with the addition of some eastern musicians he studied later. To me when it comes to Statesboro Blues, Dreams, Must Have Did Somebody Wrong, Trouble No More. One Way Out etc Duane Allman is tops. The tone, note structure and energy Duane Allman lays down is in a class all its own.

But I'll buy The Brothers show because it's good just as I buy good Govt Mule, Gregg and Dickey solo, Sea Level.

No one, not the players nor the promoters considered this an ABB show. It was a tribute for the ABBs 50th anniversary; fittingly held on their 51st. And yes, Duane has no equal imo. As far as Derek is concerned; well, hes the best guitarist going today. Hes in his prime and is still hungry after all these years... hes got his band and ppl are taking notice. May be a household name one day soon. While Duane certainly lit the spark in young, prodigious DT...I think jazz horn players and middle eastern modality ultimately shaped his style. Duane was the foundation though, make no mistake.

Since they didn't call themselves "The Allman Brothers," it was very clear that they were not calling themselves "The Allman Brothers."

It's an amazing show. It's some of the best live music you will see these days. It's a treat.

Duane and BO have been dead almost 50 years, Gregg and Butch have been gone a few years now, Dickey is retired, its over. Nobody ever said The Brothers, was The ABB. Appreciate it for what it is, it may never happen again.

I don't care what you call them - that group of musicians playing together is magic under any name.

You add in Chuck and it is so over the Top! Of course, Gregg's voice can't be replaced but Warren knocked it out of the park. No knock on Gregg but Reese is a much better player which is what helped it all sound so good. And with his musical history, it is deserving for him to be up there with all those other greats.

Always found it strange when some would say that Derek sounded like Duane. I get the kindred musical spirit stuff but as for playing styles. They are very different players. Warren's slide playing has always leaned closer to what Duane played. Likely comes from learning from the albums as we all did and then playing Duane's part with Dickey before the reunion. After the reunion, they likely "asked" him to play similar to the albums and Duane. All while doing his own thing.

Ten seconds into my first ABB show in 89 and I immediately turned to a friend and said - "I have no idea who that guy is but he does Duane Allman real well. The Original ABB sound is back!". What a great move it was to hire Warren/Woody. I was hooked.

It amazes me that some people get so hung up on who's in the band and what they call themselves.

This was Jaimoe's idea to belatedly celebrate the 50th anniversary.

What they pulled off was fantastic and whether Derek doesn't sound the same as Duane, or Dickey wasn't there to sing Blue Sky doesn't detract from it one iota.

At 76, I'm not sure Dickey's voice would have been up to it.

He was invited and made his apologies so it's a moot point.

I ordered this in March and watched again last night.

I have to say, the video re-edit was awesome.

The audio mix was incredible too. Hearing Chuck on Midnight Rider and Whipping Post added to the songs without changing the feel.

CDs on order. Hoping there is some way to buy the video in the future.

CB here is Chuck playing the first solo on Whipping Post in 1973 recorded live in San Francisco. Gregg follows with a good organ solo. The tandem drum work between Jaimoe (on Gregg's side) and Butch (on Chuck's side) is just stellar.

This is actually better than The Brothers verison at MSG. You have Gregg Allman on vocals and a young Dickey Betts on lead guitar which is better for an ABB fan than Warren on vocals and Derek or Warren on lead guitar any day of the week. Nod to Larmar Williams on bass who was every bit as good as Otiel.

Good/better/best is null & void in the world of music sweet music - all in what ones ears hears
Great 1973 version - does the March 10 release include the full show?
Another ? (off topic)
Any recommendations on the final 6 nite run Oct 2014 - the last one the 28th w/no guests has always gotten big love - looked at setlists in database & its like, where to begin

Only Slightly keen for this March 10 show - will be cool to see how, separated by a 37- year divide, Chuck sounds on these 2 WPosts

Exactly.

If these guys toured under any name then they would be my favorite band touring.

CanadianMule. Why would they be your favorite touring band? Because they play Allman Brothers Band music? Or you like the mix of musicians and they would your favorite even if they came up with their own sound and songs?

It's unlikely these creative musicians would agree to be a touring band covering another band's songs and cover picks unless they called it The Allman Brothers which they clearly are not. Maybe Lynyrd Skynyrd can get by with no Ronnie and ONE original member but the ABB could never float without Gregg Allman. Thankfully these musicians love the ABB and its legacy as much as we do so they wouldn't dare called it the Allman Brothers. Indeed it's unlikely they will tour under any name. Maybe a few Beacon ABB tribute shows and I would go see it but even that is unlikely.
