I have been looking out for a copy of that book but it never seems to come up over here in the UK and most people (as per this seller) won't ship outside of the US ...

I owned this book,...way back when. Buy it only for its collectible value?....

There have been so many real books on the band since then that the info contained within, is very old news.....

I would be more interested in it for the pictures then the text. Does it have decent pictures of the Duane/Barry Era band?

If I recall correctly it has a great write up on the 6-26-71 Fillmore show. We have all heard the story and some around here think it has been exaggerated. This one was written just a few years after it happened so it wasn't clouded by years of opportunity to embellish. I am going to have find my copy. Best I remember from this version of that night was that the crowd kept wanting more and the band kept delivering more. The band went through it's catalogue (it didn't say literally) and then some. Then they finally played a long version of Rogers & Hammersteins "My Favorite Things" and in silence everyone filed out the doors only to find it was 7:00 am & Daylight. Well Bill Graham says they went on around 2:00 am so the math works pretty good for 4.5 to 5 hour show.

Hello Colin,

I own it and it's a very nice addition to my collection. Bought it a few years ago on ebay. Since then i have seen it pop up every now and then on ebay at "reasonable" prices. And what surpised me the most that is that those copies that go on sale are often in a very reasonable condition considering the age. Back in the Seventies most books were so poorly binded or glued that they started falling apart after a few read throughs. I spend a lot of time on ebay and similar sites (sometimes so much that i say to myself "Geez man, get a life" haha) so if you want i can keep looking out for it. I could email you a link to the specific ebay page or in case i see it with a very near by "auction end time" i could try and fetch it for you. Just PM me the maximum price including shipping costs you wanna spend on it and i will try and "hunt it down".

I have a very extensive collection of ABB stuff and I have never heard of this book. I am going to have to try and find it.

Speaking of ABB books, if you can find a reasonably priced copy of Dean Reynolds' ABB Discography, I highly recommend it. It is out of print and amazon has it for $100 (ouch!) but you never know. Hittin the Note used to carry it.

Yes it does. I can't remember when it was printed (at least 10-15 years ago) so that would be where they end. I think the last commercial release covered is Peakin at the Beacon. I want to say it was released around 2000 so that should give you a point of reference.

I was trying to collect as much as I could and I marked up my book extensively with what I could find. I communicated with Dean several times. He is a really nice guy, lives in Cincinnati, went to The Warehouse show.

I found a handful of things not in his book that I pointed out to him. He was aware of them but they didn't get into the book. I asked him about doing a follow up but he said there just wasn't the demand so he wasn't going to do one.

At any rate, find this if you can. It is worth it just for the beautiful glossy color photos.

Dean Reynolds book is a true labour of love. I think he actually had to sell a part of his extensive ABB collection in order to have the book financed. How bizarre is that? Although i have to admit his book is a bit flawed and also a bit of "bad luck" timing wise because with the exception of a few "best of" compilations the ABB didn't have a new release on the market in many years and just after this book was released in the beginning of the new millenium.....bam, the floodgates went open. Hittin' The Note, dozens and dozens of instant live shows and the archive releases only to name a few. Also all the family bands were very productive in teh last 10 years or so. If the book was released a few years later in the same format it would have had double the number of pages.

In the days of the old site before the change to this one, one of the awesome members (can't recall right now) sent me a complete list of recorded shows. He had complete reviews and set lists. When I first printed it out, I didn't know how long it was. Came back in the room and there was literally a book on my printer. Incredible. Will try and see if I still have that email.

Sorry off topic but you guys made me think.

Might be wrong but I think he was referring to the Gregg on the cover of the book up for bid on ebay as he is playing a shiny strat looking axe on the cover

Oops you are right. I was looking at his tagline.

That website is huge in size and extremely informative. Another example of a true labour of love from a 1st rate
ABB fan(atic). It's not because it's host is a fellow country man of mine but that website deserves a lot more attention from ABB fans worldwide and also should get a honorable mention on this website. I guess that won't happen since his ABB discography also includes bootlegs and cover art which may be an issue with the ABB management. For information on the ABB recorded output it's THE website to visit! Publicity rant over haha.

That guitar is a Veleno. The family still makes them for about 8K apiece.

I would not give you $8 for one.
