So, I think it would be nice to have the last 6 shows that the band played (I wasn't present at any of them) but wondered if this was really the best bang for my 2014 buck. Were all of the last Beacon shows wonderful or would anybody recommend some of the other 2014 non-Beacon shows in preference.

Many thanks for any help you can offer.

The hub teeth being broken on these cases is a common issue. I've ordered several of the shows over the years and many of the orders seem to have had this issue.

The good thing is that HTN has been great about sending me replacement empty cases when this has happened.


My first issue since I had missing screws on the 40th Anniversary black box, so I forgot ! Thanks for the reminder, e mail has been sent to Vicky's crew.

Hopefully when mine come next week there won't be any broken cases.

My copy of October 28th arrived today ! The hub teeth on disc 3 were all smashed, so the CDR was flopping around loose...hopefully it'll still play alright.
Diggin' disc 1 right now, sounds great.

I ordered as soon as it popped up but seeing even the individual shows still show as a pre order I know that they would not be shipping yet.

The 40th anniversary run came in a wooden box with Beacon artwork on it and a bonus disc of the previous year's Christmas Jam ABB set only available with the box.

I don't think this set has anything like that, it's just the CD's.

Just a logistical question- is the '6 shows for the price of 5' considered a box set? I think i've seen past beacon runs be offered as a box set and am just wondering what that entails.

All 6 of those shows are great. The 10-28 show was legendary.

i -the show was really well played and spot on other than blue sky (and that's only one part of that song that had a slip up)..........


There was also a major flub during YDLM. Gregg sang right through a solo. The improv was spot on though.

Not to these ears! The flac hd is stupendous.


That's what I've heard. I'm about to get a copy of the DVD vine and can attest for myself. I have the first set of the original 10 shows and they sound fine.

I have been seeing the Brothers for a long time, probably 100+ shows just at the Beacon. The last 4 shows were just pure fire. Putting the 28th in it's own category , i thought the 27th and 24th were incredible. And the 25th too.

heres my take on the last 6 Beacon shows. Was at all of them

1. Oct 28th
2. Oct 27th
3. Oct 24th
4. Oct 25th
5. Oct 21st
6. Oct 22nd

They are all worth getting without hesitation.

I have every show this year. I would rank the top 5 as follows.

1. 10-28 (Best show this version of the band ever played in my opinion.)
2. 10-24
3. 10-25
4. 9-7
5. 3-18

i do think lockn was one of the stronger shows (that had gregg at it) of this year..........besides the final three though.......

for me---not only with the farmer aspect----and the fact i was front and center on the normal people rail----the show was really well played and spot on other than blue sky (and that's only one part of that song that had a slip up)..........

for me----lockn was much better than either of the two peachfest shows.......

no worries....

but it is good to keep in mind that the special 6 for 5 only applies for the beacon run......

my bad, saw the 6 and best bang for a buck and thought he was referring to the 6 for 5 deal...

In that case, I would go for 3/7 (opening night), 3/15 (killer smokestack lightnin), Lockin (pure emotion - Farmer), Final 3 (just kept building to the "EPIC" final)

the way i read it, was that the OP was asking for other show recommendations for this year..........

that way if the beacon 6 weren't bought, they could get some of the other "hot" shows from this year......

It is not a mix and match offer. It is only for the final six:

Allman Brothers Band
Beacon Theatre Oct 2014
6 for the price of 5
