Be prepared … when you get there, you might just say, “Wow!” out loud, like I did 🙂 … which my office mates loved. :-/
While you’re visiting Hittin’ the Note, do yourself a favor and check out the best selling ABB Archival CD ever – Stonybrook 9/19/71. If you haven’t heard this one yet, you’re in for a treat. In the opinion of many, this concert has best Blue Sky and Dreams ever captured on tape from the Allman Brothers Band’s original lineup. Listen to sound clips and order, if you like, at:
More good news – especially if you live in CA! Layla Allman’s band, Lane Four, has a gig at The Famous Whisky A Go Go on Sunset Strip this Saturday, Oct 4th, at 8:00 PM sharp. Sorry, Layla, but we’ll be with your Daddy. However, if we were anywhere near the Whiskey A Go-Go, we’d be there, and we hope the Peach Corps turns out for you in full family force! As we love to cheer, “Go Lane Four!”
Speaking of love, the Hittin’ the Web family loves the entire Seaman family in New York City, and is zenning out positive, healing vibes to Ba’ Bro’ Tyler. ((Tyler))
Love is also flowing out to Helen (of the Wanee Hilton 🙂 ), one of the most a-may-zen sisters you will ever meet, who recently had the lovely (hah!) experience of having her home robbed and car stolen while she and her family slept. Fortunately they were not hurt and all is well now. Helen’s car is even back safe and sound, but we’re so sorry they had to experience such unkindness.
Take care and know that you are loved,
Lana <-- writing solo because I’m still at work and Rowland is on his way to Merriweather Post. Have fun, baby! Tell the guys Shey and I will see them tomorrow! Whoo hoo!
