Good set list. Quality is OK for this era. Not perfect but definitely listenable. I would enter the setlist here if I knew how. 10 songs, Runtime 1.4 hours.

I NEED this show! This was the day I was born. I want both sets if available. I became a fan in the early 90's, but feel the need for the show form my birthday!

It must have been about 1985 when a guy I traded tapes with in Chicago told me that someone in that city was getting ready to publish an Allman Brothers Band newsletter. I was thrilled! Finally Id located someone else who shared my obsession. I spoke to Kirk West by telephone and received issue #1 of Les Brers by mail. It looked a little bit crude, but I thought it was great! I called Kirk to congratulate him and offer a few suggestions. The next thing I knew Id committed to contributing an article for Issue #2!

I asked him to give me a deadline and started thinking about what I would write. I narrowed it down to three things: the first time I saw the Allman Brothers play, the last time I saw Duane, or the first time they played Atlanta without him. Deciding on the last show with Daune, I consulted with my old friend Ray Pavlovic, who had been at that concert with me. The two of us wracked our brains remembering every detail of that extraordinary day. I took pages of notes and sat down to write a story but nothing came. I stared and stared at my notes and tried to write an outline. Still no inspiration. I put it aside hoping to get back to it again soon.

Finally the night before Id promised a finished article to Kirk, I pulled out all my notes and previous efforts and tried to finish the job I wasnt about to miss my deadline! Still, I had no success. I decided to go to bed without a finished article and set my alarm to 4:00 am, then get up and try again (as Id often done while studying for exams in college). As I lay in bed, half-way into a dream state with all the thoughts Id had floating around in my head, I experienced a White Flash and the finished article appeared in my head, complete.

I got up immediately and wrote everything down. I didnt even have to think about what I was writing it was all there and I just needed to put it on paper. Never before or since have I had such an overwhelming flash of creativity and inspiration. I went back to bed and fell asleep, hoping that when I awoke the next day I would like what Id written. I did.

The story below is the result of that magical experience. Isnt it wonderful what a deadline can do?

Incidentally, an audience tape of the afternoon show turned up about 6 or 7 years after I wrote this, and listening to it confirms completely what I felt that day. Id pretty much dropped out of tape trading by then, but for some reason I glanced at a list Id received from a Deadhead Id never met and found a listing for an Allman Brothers Band show on July 17, 1971. I assumed the date was incorrect there were numerous versions floating around of a show from the same day in July but in 1970. On the off chance that Id discovered a new Duane tape I contacted the trader and found out that it was indeed that correct date and that it was from Duanes last show at the Atlanta Municipal Auditorium!

Of course, he didnt actually have it himself it was his buddy who had it. Apparently his buddy had taped the afternoon show and never really traded it with anyone until his Deadhead friend discovered it and put it on his list. Unfortunately the buddy had just gotten out of rehab and was hard to get in touch with it took me a year of working with the guy (God bless him!) whod sent me the original list before he actually got his hands on a first generation copy of the tape from his buddy and sent it to me. Even then, the Mountain Jam theyd done for the encore that afternoon never did surface although it had been taped.

Anytime a new Duane show surfaces is a time for rejoicing, but for me to be able to listen to this show again to recreate the music I heard the day I reached the highest high of my life is remarkable beyond words. Please read this story and travel back in time to a simpler era and join me at the Allman Brothers Band concert here in Atlanta on 7-17-71 the last show Duane played in his adopted home town.
