I wish the band (or someone) would do a documentary about the band, with interviews of all present and past surviving bandmembers as well as archival footage. I find it hard to believe that 40 years on that there hasn't been a Behind The Music or retrospective about the Allman Brothers Band's history.

Hell, even if it just covered the seventies, I'd be happy!

Rich, while it's true there's the Please Call Home documentary that is unreleased, and it IS quite good, there are a few folks who are sadly missing from interview footage. It would be nice if they were able to edit and ad some more footage of the missing persons to it.

Good question. However doesn't it just cover the Big House era and nothing beyond that?

They need to do something like Tom Petty had done a couple of years ago. That documentary was great.

Yeah, the Please Call Home documentary is great, but it is focused on a couple years of the band. It would be a shame if that is the only documentary ever released.

There was a show put out by CMT that covered southern rock which included most of the band up to around Brothers and Sisters which was pretty good but none that covered anything after say 73.

I forgot about that. That was over three hours long and I wanted more.

Don't forget the Beatles Anthology DVDs -- Eight hours of a career over ten hours of video.

A one hour Behind The Music wouldn't be enough -- that would just cover the recording of "Whipping Post."

I don't really need the details of the whole story told, just every second of Barry and Duane footage available and restored! Some commentary around that, plus some crisp Chuck/Lamar era, plus some video from the 1979 tour, plus the 1990 MTV Unplugged performance would be just grand.

For you old school hard rock/metal fans, Iron Maiden has done a couple amazing documentaries with live concert video packaged together. The Early Years I think is one. So much older great stuff is being released by so many artists, including ones who can't sell nearly the numbers the ABB would in a DVD package (Maiden not being an example of low sales).

I'll repeat my oft expressed desire to see Ken Burns do a documentary of Duane's life, in historical context. Kinda' like the CMT thing. Emphasis on the culture when Duane began playing, the reality of the Klan, the reality of those who despised the Klan in the deep south, the cultural changes culminating in the election of Jimmy Carter as President, the role The Allman Brothers Band and the music played in the cultural evolution of the region and the country.

Mark Kemp attempted to do this in his book, Dixie Lullaby-it was about his coming of age in the New South (Asheboro, NC) and how bands like the ABB played a vital role in how young Southerners defined themselves and how the culture contributed to their collective self-image in the '60s and '70s.

It was a real good book, despite several factual errors, like identifying Paul Hornsby as one of the guitarists in the Hourglass...
