Congratulations are in order for the Allman Brothers Band – “Live At The Beacon” is now a Platinum DVD! Come on, give up some thunderous applause from behind your desks! Yessssssssss!
Good news for everyone whose heart was broken by not being able to get in on the ABB’s Instant Live series last year – The Allman Brothers Band’s previously sold out series of 6 Instant Live CDs from their legendary 2003 summer tour has been re-printed and is now available through a special pre-sale promotion from Kid Glove Enterprises!
“Magical” best describes the summer of 2003 for the ABB. They soared through classic tunes from their roots, dropped jaws with their powerful version of Layla (especially in Charlotte), left audiences awe-struck with stellar new material from “Hittin’ the Note”, and pulled out all the stops with surprising guest artists like Branford Marsalis sitting in on sax in Raleigh.
Now you can re-capture the magic of Charlotte, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Buffalo (Darien Lake), and Hartford with these unique recordings whose near-perfect blend of soundboard and microphone mixes clearly surpasses audience or soundboard-only shows.
Each of these incredible ABB shows encompasses 3 CDs and comes packaged in unique, durable Instant Live digipacs. Single shows are $20.00 each, plus shipping and handling, or the complete series, 6 shows, can be yours for $100.00, plus shipping and handling through this special pre-sale offer by visiting:
All orders placed during this pre-sale offer, which runs until May 16, 2004, WILL BE FILLED! A June 2004 delivery is anticipated.
Whether you order a single show, the complete series of 6, or any combination you wish, the music will be some of the best you have ever heard!
Please direct any questions you may have regarding these Allman Brothers Band Instant Live CDs to: InstantABB@hittinthenote.com
Or call: 1-888-746-4616 and listen for the Instant Live mailbox option.
Due to the length of time between the original Instant Live offering in October 2003 and now, and with credit card, e-mail, and address information changing, Kid Glove Enterprises asks that those of you who had unfilled orders please re-order during this pre-sale.
Since you’ve read this far you deserve even more good news! The ABB is teaming up with Instant Live again this summer to bring you select shows from their 2004 tour. Dates and locations will be announced soon!
Take care and know that you are loved – especially the Princess of Peach, Sheyenne Michelizzi, whose 21st birthday is this Friday, April 30. Happy birthday, baby girl!
