Allman Bros: Macon, GA 2/11/72 and Nassau Coliseum 5/1/73

THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND TO RELEASE
TWO VINTAGE RECORDINGS

The Allman Brothers Band is excited to announce the release of two high-quality vintage recordings of their early incarnations this February 12, 2013. The band historically recorded many of their live shows and are selectively releasing their personal choices through the band’s Allman Brothers Band Recording Company label, distributed through Entertainment One Music.

The 2/12/13 releases include two especially unique shows. The 2/11/72 concert in their Macon, GA hometown is the band’s first show there after the death of founding guitarist Duane Allman and features the group as a five-piece with all original members: keyboardist Gregg Allman, drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, bassist Berry Oakley and guitarist Dickey Betts. Never-before-heard in the bootleg market, the Macon performance showed the band in ferocious form, just two months before their legendary Eat A Peach live album was released.

The band’s 5/1/73 show at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY marked a much different line-up for the Allman Brothers Band. Keyboardist Chuck Leavell (who would later go on to The Rolling Stones) had joined the group in mid 1972 just before founding bassist Berry Oakley’s untimely death. Jaimoe’s childhood friend Lamar Williams was chosen to replace Berry Oakley six months prior to the Nassau recording. Four songs from this set had not appeared on any of the previous live or archival releases: “Come & Go Blues,” “Wasted Words,” “Jessica” and “Ramblin’ Man.” Like the 2/11/72 Macon show, this concert is from a two-track reel-to-reel soundboard master tape.
