I found this info:


In the fall of 1972, The Allman Brothers Band was still grieving over the October,1971 motorcycle death of band founder and co-lead guitarist Duane Allman. Their future wasn't clear as a lot of their success was based on the interplay between Duane and Dickey Betts who "rewrote the rules for how two rock guitarists can work together, completely scrapping the traditional rhythm/lead roles" (Guitar World, 2009). That unique dynamic resulted in the release of "Eat A Peach" and "At the Fillmore East", to critical acclaim. The band turned to co-founder Betts who offered up "Ramblin' Man" and it was just the momentum needed. The upbeat country song resulted in the Allman's sole Top 10 song. "Ramblin' Man", peaking at #2 on Billboard's Hot 100. Dickey Betts was ranked #58 on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time list in 2003, and #61 on the 2011 list. He also wrote Allman Brother Band classics such as "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "Blue Sky" that became radio and concert staples and they were pioneers of the emerging jam band scene with their mix of roadhouse blues and free form rock guitar solos, which again brought them enormous critical acclaim. As a member of the Allman Brothers Band, Dickey was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and in 1996, won a Best Rock performance Grammy Award for his instrumental "Jessica". After the Allman Brothers fell apart in 1976, Betts released more solo albums, with Dickey Betts & Great Southern being released in 1977, which included the song "Bougainvillea," (co-written with future Hollywood star Don Johnson). This new 2017 2 CD live performance set was recorded at The Calderone Concert Hall on August 11, 1978. The source master was taken directly off the Pre-FM reel to reel. The band Great Southern consisted of Betts, "Dangerous" Dan Toler - guitar, David "Rook" Goldflies - bass, Michael Workman - keyboards, David "Frankie" Toler - drums, Doni Sharbono - drums and Mimi Hart - background vocals Get it now before it is gone! A MUST HAVE CD SET for any fan!

Disc 1: Run Gypsy Run, You Can't Have Her (I Don't Want Her), Goodtime Feeling, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, Bougainvillea, California Blues, Jessica- Southbound-Jessica medley

Disc 2: Crazy Love, Long Time Gone, High Falls- part 1, High Falls- part 2, Blue Sky, Ramblin' Man

Well maybe not a bootleg technically.

Europe has changed law on copyright.

I ordered because Dickey Betts.

I encourage folks to trade these recordings for free.
Traders are a "great bunch" and there are so many great shows out there.
I know this show circulated so it is "out there". =index&gid=21

Got this today. Sound is typical of a radio station live mix. The pro mastering makes the difference tho'.

Has every DB song I want to hear including a few from Highway Call.

Brisk tempos, high energy, hot playing.

On the back cover at the top:

This release is with the authorization and participation of the artist
