Two new ABB Archival Releases coming out soon. To make sense of the posts below, I originally posted a lot more info than is currently on the site... Then realized I was ahead of the curve and removed... Sorry for the confusion. It will all be back soon.

Hittin the Note will have a preorder before long. Stay tuned for more info.

That's why I changed the thread title, too...

Agreed. Looking forward to both.

Warren was involved in the Beacon CDs, which is good news.

Been waiting on that Great Woods to get a proper release. Too many DVD's released in the 90's had those interview cut segments thrown in the middle of shows.

I hope this is a sign to come about more archival releases.

Thank you, this is good news. But I'm really hoping they will release the 2009 Clapton at the Beacon shows on DVD next! How 'bout a 2009 Beacon DVD box set!!!!!

Count me in as a buyer. 1992 was a grand year for the ABB. The reunion was in full swing and their new albums provided great new live songs to along with the warhorses from the '70s. Marc Q was integrated into the band giving them a new dimension. Gregg/Warren/Dickey harmony vocals brought an added layer to the band they didn't really have in their original format. The acoustic sets were just top notch!

Having been born about a month before the band formed, this version of the ABB was "my band" and I had full Allman-fever in 1992 at the end of college. Seeing the band each summer had become a tradition a few years before (why or why did I only go to 1 show per year?).

I'll enjoy going down memory lane with these releases and I'm glad this fine era of the ABB will be getting some proper archive treatment.

I'm with you Tim.

I saw the band in 79 and 80, then once each I think in 89, 90 and 91 and was getting more and more deeply back into them.

Then I went to a couple of these 92 Beacon shows and was turned into a full-out freak. I'm really excited about this release.

Excited to see the Great Woods DVD re-release, long overdue.

Not questioning the merits of the band's performances in 1992, but I find the 2 disc Beacon set to be a bit redundant considering the existence of "An Evening w/ the Allman Brothers" and the Great Woods DVD. Most the songs on the 2 disc Beacon set already are covered on the other live sets from '92.

Excited something is being released, but feel like it is a lost opportunity to get something more unique. '92 has been pretty well documented already. '93 was a great year w/ the introduction on the Where it all Begins material. '96 had some great live performances...True Gravity! '97 w/ Jackie P and Oteil on board definitely needs to be documented. Summer '99 w/ Derek and Dickey (no Peakin at the Beacon doesn't count, awful) 2000....Derek and Jimmy! 2009 40th anniversay. Lot of things that haven't been touched like 1992 already has.

Agree that 1992 seems a bit of an odd year to choose for an archival live release at this point, but I notice it is on Sony and not part of the "archival releases" from the Peach/ABB label. Did the ABB owe Sony/Epic another live album? I thought the Reekin' at the Beacon from 1999 was the last release to fulfill that contract. With the timing of the releases in mid-February just ahead of the annual Beacon run, it does seem like a record label decision. Heck, "Play All Night" sounds like a title selected by a record label suit.

I am thrilled to hear Warren is closely involved with producing it. Hope this means there might be a renewed focus by the band on the Epic catalog during next year's touring. I know Gregg won't sing Nobody Knows anymore, but Low Down Dirty, Get On With Your Life, and lots of other really strong tunes that have largely been ignored the past few years. Would love for them to breathe some new life into those tunes again.

Not meaning to sound like a wet blanket. First thing I thought when I saw this thread was it's not April yet, and then I got excited about the prospect. And to echo some other comments, a proper release of the Great Woods DVD is long long overdue, and always great to get new 'official' music in any capacity. Just thought the year was a bit odd.

I will say that to the best of my knowledge there was no contractual obligation.

I think one of the reasons for this release is that these specific shows were professionally recorded and were in the hands of Sony/Epic. ABB at the Beacon brings some instant buzz to it around their anniversary and the Beacon Run. Warren being a part of the band then enables him to get involved now.

Yes, not the most unique thing to release. That version of Revival is amazing and if they were going to repeat a version, that one is understandable.

Are they done archiving Duane shows?....for me those are the most interesting....pretty much anything modern can be found through trading...

I think it's a stellar year for them to release material from, they really jelled in 1992. Only 1 track has already been previously released, and there are no other live albums from 1992, so this double live set sounds pretty fresh, especially for those of us who don't really care about live concert dvds (though I had the Great Woods VHS, so I am excited to get a full 1992-era show on disc).

Also, the band did resurrect "Low Down Dirty Mean" last year, sounded great at the Beacon.

I would agree with hotlantatim's assessment of this part of the equation....

"I think one of the reasons for this release is that these specific shows were professionally recorded and were in the hands of Sony/Epic."

When I worked at Hittin' the Note, it was always a "dealbreaker" to release anything that would have to involve Sony. I'm not sure what arrangement the ABB and Sony have come to over this, but I'm glad cooler heads have prevailed, and we will all benefit from it.

Agreed. Not very interested in anything after 1979....

Thanks for stealing our thunder, Alan

With the ABB, Sony and Universal basically settling the lawsuits that had been filed, it has opened the door for more releases like the Brothers and Sisters 40th Anniversary, Beacon 92, Great Woods DVD and more to come.

HTN will be offering up these products for pre-sale as soon as Sony allows. Probably not until the new year. John Lynskey, Editor of HTN, wrote the liner notes to the Beacon 92 release - very detailed and informative...you're going to enjoy this one!

Beacon '92 is a tremendous release - Warren did a great producing it, and it captures the real power and melodic beauty of the Betts/Haynes/Woody line-up - think everyone who is a fan of that era of the ABB is going to be very, very pleased with this CD
