Have you been trying to find a specific ABB related item for your collection and finally were able to obtain it?
Joy Joy!

Did you finally found that "long out of print / collector's item"? Maybe you were always out bid on ebay or couldn't afford the price for which it has been offered in (web)stores in the past.

For me recently it was a ebay purchase (no, i do not own that auction site!). I was looking for this item for ages and couldn't believe that my final bidding price that won was a mere $ 2,95 (+ 7 bucks for shipping to Europe) for:

The Allman Brothers Band Limited Edition CD International Rett Syndrome Association.
Accoustic performance recorded live at the Radio & Records Convention in Los Angeles on 6/11/92.
Only 15.000 copies made. Boy, was i excited when it recently landed on my doormat. It is indeed in excellent condition.





Other contenders were a Warren Haynes Christmas Jam 2008 poster for $ 5,00 when it was on sale on the Mule website, a Japanese "Ramblin' Man / Pony Boy" single way below it's usual price and in the category "cheesy memorablia" a LP Sized Gregg Allman mirror from 1977 (Playing Up A Storm) which i never seen ever since. Found that mirror on a Dutch auction site for a few bucks.

So, what's your luckiest catch?

I had a former student (7th grade) give me a poster of the cover of First Set, signed by all the band members except for Thom Doucette (He was pictured as well). Wasn't seeking it out as it was a surprise, but I do treasure it.

Hangs proudly in the studio.

I bought a copy last year on Ebay. I think my favorite stuff is my signed albums and programs from Gregg, Warren, and Derek from when I go to the Beacon every year.

Oh yeah, I have that Retts Syndrome CD as well...glad i ordered it way back when. And probably better than that is the Live at the Fillmore from the grateful dead soundboard.
I was just getting into the ABB when i saw an advertisement on the 'then new' internet about it, so i ordered it. I didnt appreciate it then, but its one of my most prized posessions now. What a great sounding show from that era!

Gregg Allman - One More Try: An Anthology

I was working at Tape World when it came out and bought it the same day. I actually checked it in and put it aside since we only got one copy. Tape World. Sounds like Spatula City. Only we sold more than cassette tapes. Although some lady did come in looking for adhesive tape...

Also, when I was at the Big House I got a promo poster from the Shades Of Two Worlds album. I love that poster. And my wife got me a 70's era mushroom pendant that I really like.

I too have the Seven Turns with the reversed pictures and although it's collectible, it irritates the sh!t out of me that the quality control was so bad lol. And the Rhetts Syndrome disc I bought when the band was offering it so luckily I didn't pay out the a$$ for it. I love that disc.

I have a number of items that I treasure, all for different reasons.

One of my most favorite is an unused ticket to the 12/1/70 Derek & The Dominoes show in Tampa where Duane joined them onstage, one of only two times that that happened.

The most cherished, Bobo's ABB logo jean jacket that he wanted me to have. I still take it to shows, so in a fashion, he's still there too.

Tape World - that is funny. I bet more than one person came looking for tape. Thanks for the laugh.

Have a few cool things but I would say a denim tour jacket signed by band and some of the crew given to me by the label. Would love to add derek's signature but always forget to bring it along. A little tight on me now so don't wear it at all so never want to carry it along.

Love that acoustic show. Nice find.

Probably my ticket to the 3/29/2014 Beacon show that I somehow managed to buy on my phone when the internet went out at 10am as the presale began.

I managed to buy a copy of One More Try when it came out, so glad I did, it's one of my favorite albums. I got the acoustic show via a widely available bootleg I picked up called "Sweet Melissa".

Someone was kind enough to send me a copy of a Richard Betts 1974 show which I consider pretty lucky to have - country jam versions of "Liz Reed", "Jessica", and "Les Brers" are out of this world.

Speaking of limited fan club releases, anyone remember the 3rd Set album? It was from the Allmans' appearance on Austin City Limits from 1996 and is a great show (you can find the whole thing on Youtube last I checked), but the sound quality was horrible - odd for something that had every right to be soundboard. Anyone know that story regarding that one? I am pretty sure it wasn't just a bootleg, I remember it being a fan club release, but I might be wrong.

Around 2004 I bought the Ludlow Garage double CD at a record shop on South Street in Philadelphia. I opened it up, and out fell a ticket stub from a show from 8/28/90 at the Mann Music Center in Philly. I thought that was really sweet.

I always thought (but i don't have any proof) that that 3rd set release just to be a bootleg. I thought the text "fan club release" was just an attempt to make it look legit. Doesn't it also have a production credit to Tom Dowd which would be odd since it's always being described as being horriblely sounding? If i ever find it i still might wanna pick it up to add to my collection though.

Yeah it did cite Tom Dowd, which doesn't make any sense - why would he spend his time on it? Must have been a boot.

The 3rd set sounded awful and then had an unidentified acoustic set that may have sounded worse tacked on the end

I had GA floor tix for the Another One For Woody show. When my wife and I had the BC's VIP tix for the Theatre In Times Square they had some replica signed items (harp, slide, & sticks) that we both recieved, One set for each ticket , but for the AOFW show the VIP tix got you a signed poster by the bands. NMA was onstage and didn't sign nor did a good number of the guests. I brought an extra $100 in hopes of scoring one of the posters. I was able to score a poster from an elder couple on the way out from that section. I later had Luther & Cody sign it at Mexicali Live in NJ, Artimus Pyle sign it at BB Kings in NYC, & Rich Robinson sign it at the Bowery Ballroom. I believe there were only 20 VIP tix & posters available for this one night only show. I think I have the most complete poster signature wise and may still add Gordie & Hook if they're available at a local venue, but I love it as is.

I have multiple other items, boots, rare collectibles, signed books and stuff, but that is my fav!

I see this every day so I don't always think about it but it's definitely a favorite. My wife took the picture at Penn's Peak and then we got it signed outside the Beacon. When Gregg saw the picture and said "It must have been windy."

The prints I have of the 2009/2011 Palace and Beacon shows I know they are not rare but I smile every time I look at them on my living room wall.
