Phillybob has the right idea here... The fascination with the ABB playing cover tunes when they have so many excellent originals that they don't play is mind boggling.

I second that ! Those songs (which are BTW) are perfect on a Gov't Mule setlist but
IMHO not on a ABB setlist.

I don't understand this fasination with the bros doing a bunch of covers. Layla was cool...there was some history and a connection there. Of course that's just my view of it.

As a newbie to this, but a long time bros fans, I'd like to chime in trhat I think we're all losing sight of the fact that this band has always been a cover band, probably the best of all time. To me the best stuff off Fillmore East was their re-working of the blues, turning them into their own tunes. (C'mon, who amongst us doen't want to hear "Statesboro Blues" every time we see this band.) In that spirit, I again suggest they "cover" and re-work some more lesser-known blues tunes, and introduce some of the younger audience to people like Big Bill Broonzy, Elmore James, Fred Mcdowell, and so on and so on...

We don't need then to cover the damned Beatles or the Dead--introduce some of their own lesser known stuff, Like they did with "Wasted Words" this year, and fire up some more classic blues tunes, like they did with "Little Schoolgirl", "Who's Been Talkin'", "44 Blues", etc.

In that light, gimme:
-Dimples
-Jelly Jelly
-Key to the Highway
-Etc. Etc, but please, forget Free Bird

Hey dixiechicken -
Welcome to the site, and good point! The ABB has always reinvented other tunes and made them swing. What rocks my boat is hearing them play whatever rocks their boat.

Dixiechicken, you make many good points. Reworking of any blues tune by the ABB is just fine with me! BTW, I'd like to add Just Ain't Easy to phillybob's list. This tune would be a nice contrast to some of the blusier songs and Warren and Derek would absolutely kill the outro!

I agree with Dixiechicen on this...although the Brothers may be covering other artist's work, when they do they often make that work their own. Call it Stormy Monday belongs to the Brothers, with all due respect and deference to T-Bone....This band has reintroduced me to many of the greats over the years.....

I think that's a good point... for a long time, the only song the ABB did that was written by a 'contemporary' musician instead of a classic bluesman was Sweet Mama. They've made a few exceptions to that since then, which is OK in limited quantities - Into the Mystic and Layla are great songs - but too much of it would start to be less of interpreting and more of covering.

I could do without "Statesboro Blues" for a while. I'm just glad it's a short tune!

I agree, I want to hear more ABB original tunes...

Can't Lose What You Never Had (I know it's a Muddy Waters tune, but essentially, it's really only his lyrics, the music is all ABB)
Kind of Bird
Sailin' 'Cross the Devil's Sea
True Gravity
Walk Like a Man
I'm Not Crying (I count this, as Jack was an ABB member!)

I certainly like their covers, but we don't need tons of them. I like when they mix them up a lot! I wish that while they're adding new ones, they'd keep old ones in rotation, like "Loan Me a Dime", "I Feel So Bad", "Franklin's Tower", etc. It'll be interesting to see what happens to "Layla" and the other ones that were brought out this past year. -

I love how they only play "Stormy Monday" occasionally, it doesn't seem to always get played. I love that song, but I love when songs become sort of random, it makes them more exciting and unexpected.

Isn't True Gravity a song Dickey wrote?? If so, thats a reason why they don't.

True Gravity was written by Dickey and Warren. So it's great for arguing: people who really want it can say "Warren co-wrote it, so it's not a Dickey song," and people who don't think it'll happen can say "Dickey co-wrote it, so they won't play it."

The Allman Brothers wrote all these songs not one person or the other even listen to the up close radio shows and other interviews although one or the other brought the idea or lyrics or whatever what they ended up with was completely different sounding, butch and Jay and marc have never written anything but you can't tell me they have not had suggestions and altered songs.

True Gravity I hope they play again soon. They played Elizabeth Reed this summer...wasn't that a song Dickey wrote? Man, I was glad to hear it.

There are a few ABB songs I'd love to hear, like "Never Knew How Much". I must say, though, it was a real treat to hear "Into the Mystic" (one of my all time favorite songs) and "Layla" this summer at the Greek in L.A. I hope they play 'Into the Mystic' again (and clean up the horn lines).

Most everything they play is always fine with me but.......
I would love to hear Win, Lose or Draw a favorite that reminds me of someone special.
Also, Seven Turns, another sentimental favorite for me.

I would love to hear the ABB do the Robert Johnson classic, Stop Breakin' Down Blues.
