This lineup sure kicked ass. Warren played with a fire especially on Bluesky and BWIAB.

Miss Woody too.

Warren made Dickey a better player during this era. He pushed him to new heights. The Betts/Haynes tandem was a force to reckon with. It's still my favorite lineup: Gregory, Dickey, Warren, Woody, Jaimoe, Butch, & Marc.

The addition of Marc Quinones was a masterstroke. He meshed seamlessly. You didn't know he was missing until you heard him. Then it was "Ah ha!" His accents are the best; little things in Dreams & Sailin' 'Cross The Devil's Sea jump to mind but there are many more.

Anyone know what model Warren's guitar is in the picture at this link: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/allman-brothers-bands-rare-version-o f-statesboro-blues-premiere-20140108

It looks like a Strat but not quite. Maybe it is but I have a feeling it's not. Any one know? And WTF is that bass Woody is playing?

It is a strat, and the bass Woody is playing is some kind of custom. I met a luthier in tucson who built a bass for Woody when he worked for a company in massachusetts. he had a pic of Himself, Woody, and the bass on his wall. I love this version of statesboro!. no slight to Derek, but I always thought Warren played this tune closer to duanes feel on slide.

That is a Steinberger bass... it was a Strat.. very unusual with that red headstock. Warren LOVED that guitar.. I saw him play many times during the original WH Band.. it was his primary guitar with them... It was stolen in NYC.

I have spent a good amount of time with Play All Night. It is great. So is Live at Great Woods.. Made m really miss Dickey.

Writing up fuller reviews soon.

Al, if that is a steinberger bass, it is a custom. they never put out a bass with those angles, tuning machines , or color.

Thanks for the replies. I love the tone Warren had with the red Strat. The red headstock threw me off for sure. I miss that tone. It was unique for slide too. It had a shimmery, glistening tone.

pops42 - I'm with you on Statesboro Blues. I cringe when Derek plays the opening because he doesn't use Duane's licks. They are integral to the song.

Ok, gonna look into it. I've looked a that bass for 20 years and thouht it was a Steinberger but never confirmed or anything. I spent a lot of time talking to Woody about his instruments but sadly never recorded any of them or really treated them as interviews.

Half-way thru two-disc advance now and it is absolutely splendid in terms of both musicianship, song selection and sound quality. Maintain my reservations on need to require a purchase of it to have just a chance to buy Beacon tix, but virtually any ABB fan should love this with a passion when they get their hands on it and their ears into it. Almost as vividly as Deluxe B&S reminds how imaginatively the band's reconfigured themselves over the years, so perhaps the departure of Derek & Warren isn't the 'end of the line.???'

Depends on the night. Derek sometimes does it very closeto the signature At Fillmore East version. Then agian, Duane played it differently on their studio take of Statesboro Blues (later released on Dreams boxset) than he did on the live album.

I agree with all of this ... a lot. I think Warren & Dickey had something special that Dickey was unable to find with any other guitar player (well, obviously other than Duane).

They found a really great balance of being able to improvise and build up jams while still remaining an extremely tight unit. (A lot of this has to do with playing similar setlists over and over... but it worked, so that's not a complaint)

One thing I want to note (and this is only based on the sample I've heard) ... I wish the drums/percussion had a bit more separation. I have always maintained that a the largest portion of the ABB's "intensity" lies in the unique drum/percussion configuration and I'm always a little disappointed when the drums are mixed too quietly or to muddled together. But it might come out a bit more clearly when I hear an official cd or something...

Good version. A little slow paced. I like i.

Nothing I've ever heard tops the MTV Unplugged version of Seven Turns, with Johnny twinkling the ivories and adding to the harmonies with Warren & Dickey. Wish it could find the way onto to some kind of official release some day.

I am very excited to get this album.

But, I do agree with the above statement to a large extent. Much like the original Evening With album, despite the fact that this is a a fantastic multi track recording, somehow the live intensity seems to be missing particularly with the Les Bres Intro segment. I have audience recordings of these shows and I don't know why, but there seems to be something lost in the translation here. Maybe there is not enough organ or guitar parts have been edited out of the Intro?

The drums do seem to be turned way down when compared with the audience recording and that really is too bad because that seems to be a big factor in the intensity of the performance.

On the iPod player I listened to the Statesboro on, the slide seems to be "above" the band i.e. speakers over where the rest of the band is. Kind of wish it were in the middle more but I LOVE the clarity as it is the slide tone and sustain that I most crave in Statesboro.

I LOVE the mix on the Seven Turns clip. I love the mix on Midnight Blues on An Evening With. I like that there is variety here: both mixes put you in a floor seat at the show but it feels like different seats. Best way I can describe it. Like it.

Looking forward to this very much, but if you hear the bootleg recordings something seems to be sanitized in the multitrack releases. Drums are definitely a factor. I don't know. Still MASSIVELY appreciative and looking forward to this.

Here endeth the over-analysis.
