I'm a ABB fan in Australia.
We have never had the privilege of seeing ABB here and there is a lack of CDs/DVDs released from the band in my country (Thanks Amazon).

I was wandering is there any plans for a new studio CD?

It's been a while Gregg A.....

Don't hold your breathe. Altough to compensate for this we do get a new Gregg Allman solo release in a couple of months.

They will make one if and when they are ready to if ever. Anything forced wouldn't be any good so unless they are all on the same page and want to do it I see no reason to.

New archival release from the mid 90's would be great

Butch reiterated tonight that he doesn't think the band will ever go back into the studio.

He did say however that they will continue to write new songs and that they will work them into the set and compile a "new" album of live material once they are ready.

Almost every concert they played in that time period is out there. Add, the set-lists didn't vary much, that's one I wouldn't buy...no offense.

Agreed V except for the fact that some of the best played shows are lousy quality.

Paris 91 is a great example.

Wouldn't mind hearing a sound board of Merriweather 91 or Red Rocks 91 ... Red Rocks 91 is phenomenal and the recording sucks.

Well, we already have 2 excellant live albums from that period.

1st set and 2nd set. (and one almost from the 90's Peakin at the Beacon...2000)

On the other hand, we have NO full recordings of the 1979 reunion group.

That group recorded the thoroughly SMOKIN' album "Enlightened Rogues"


I would MUCH rather have a full concert from 79. (No Lawler, and no 3 backup singers of course. Just the Brothers)

That seems logical.

My personal bet is that some time in the future, Dickey straightens himself out enough, and time heals things enough, and he returns for one more studio album and one more farewell tour. There would just be too much money for all of them not to.

That would be interesting and lovely, but given their ages and Butch's recent statements, which are consistent with his words of the past decade, it seems very unlikely, even if it would be a moneymaker.

As far as it being a moneymaker, I don't know. As far as concerts go, it seems like they have played the same sized venues in the post-Dickey 2000s that they played with Dickey in the 1990s. I can't see them playing bigger places. As far as albums go, it seems like the ABB like many older artists have conceded that albums just don't sell that much anymore.

I agree it wouldn't be the moneymaker it would have been in the past, but the right marketing that puts the band in historical and critical context would give them a boost. Even playing something like the Meadows in Hartford - they draw but don't sell out and could get more for tix from the existing fan base. A $150 ticket for an ABB show with Dickey or $80 without him?

There was a show in the early 90's that was at the shoreline? San Francisco? That was a killer set they played I'm know angel with Dickey giving a killer lead. I have seen a very poor bootleg dvd of the show... that would be a great archival dvd/cd set to release.

If something came out where they played New Material Of Their Own on stage, wow that would be cool

As was said as far as the archive releases, all those mid-90s shows are out there & available in trade circles (let it remain unbroken & always thanking tapers/traders) -- there are a lot of killer shows from that era, whereas the ones I know from the 1979 band (4/20 NJ, 7/19 MD, Bros. of the Road vid) are also great ABB shows from an underrated period

A show from 97-99 with Jack Pearson would be a winner some off the chart shows from that era, jJ's Alley, High Falls, and some killer Dreams just to meantion a few..

The band seems to lack that creative spark. Add to that, Gregg has never been a prolific songwriter....Artists like John Hiatt, The Rolling Stones etc... don't seem to have any trouble throwing new material out there all the time....(Either you like the songwriting process or....you don't).. if it wasn't for Mr. Haynes and his ability to cover songs.. (aside from extended jams like 'Orfeo')... there wouldn't be any new material at all...

I wouldn't hold my breath

A great sounding Rogues lineup show, a 7 Turns/Shades lineup show, a Jack show, and a Jimmy show would be much appreciated.

But not as appreciated as ANY form of new material would be, whether they release formally or informally

Again, all those are out there & available -- with the knowledge & consent of the band -- because no $ is involved
each of their shows, all so different w/all the various musicians who've played in the band, are almost like new releases themselves -- they sound so different from each other depending on era/who's in the band/what the setlist is etc etc
I love the ABB
