"JJ's Alley" totally kicked ass. A monster instrumental. It was introduced as a "new song" by the band on the 1999 tour and then it vanished. I'm assuming that Dickey wrote it and it went with him...? Was there ever a studio recording of the song?

This was discussed a while back you might search the threads for more info.

If I remember correctly ABB never recorded it. I think it is
available via live show trades.

Dickey reworked it for "One Stop BeBop" which he then recorded.

Dickey and Great Southern played it last time I saw them this summer.

Peace
John

Then what are the odds of hearing it at an ABB show? Slim to none? At the Greek Theater in 1999 they tore it up beyond words. At least I have a copy of that show.

They also played it in Syracuse in 99. We were there. First ABB show for two of my kids. Dickey & Derek lineup. Lucinda Williams opened. I've B&P'd tons of this one. It's easy to find.

I just requested and heard it on Hittin' the web radio. Thanks, it's a great tune. Of course, I preferred the song as played by the Allman Brothers Band, but Dickey's band does a nice job too.

That was the song that made me sit back and say ''Hey, this Trucks kid ain't bad'' - saw/heard the tune played for the first time at Pittsburgh 6-99, my first exposure to Derek's playing other than a Mule show earlier that year which the DTB opened (and I missed over 1/2 of due to a late arrival). While I correctly anticipated Dickey's smoking work on this song, it was DT that really blew me away......almost 5 years later he's still blowing me away. That show still gets a lot of play on my stereo.

I also really like J.J.Alley's.....I thought it was petty of Dickey to change the title but that's just me... I also despise the new "McCartney/Lennon" song writing credits...guess I"m a traditionalist in many respects...
I think there may be an Allmans studio take/rehearsal of this in their vaults from a number of years ago.......I think some of the Almans felt it was too many different tunes mashed togther to make one..I expect it will never be done again without Dickey in the band....
I liked it....i like BeBop...it don't mean a thlng if it ain't got that swing...

Of course he can call it whatever he wants. That wasn't the point.

I agree with magicpeach- I always liked the ABB's way of doing it, especially with Jack.

Man I love JJ's Alley too -- how the ABB does it as JJ's vs. how GS does it as OSBB, is all good -- the version I like best is from Great Woods in '99 with the Brothers -- yes, hittin' the note, but "daredevil musicianship" comes first to mind.
