Hi Tony ... I haven't updated my list for a while now, but I think there are only a couple of recordings to have surfaced since I last did ... so hope this helps ...


Based upon a list of Duane shows originally produced by our good friend Clay Pelland, and various discussions on this board over the past few years, I believe the following list to be the accurate dates of genuine recordings of Duane era ABB shows. If anybody has a show with a date other than one of these, it is a strong possibility that it is either a bogus show (perhaps fabricated by an amalgamation of tracks from other shows by an unscrupulous bootlegger) or one that has been incorrectly dated.

I do not claim to be the font of all knowledge on this subject, I have merely collated what information I can from various sources, so if anyone has any additional information then please feel free to comment and I will edit and update the list as appropriate.


03/30/69 @ Jacksonville Armoury (2 discs)

This bootleg purports to be a “Second Coming” gig supposedly performed by the fledgling ABB just four days after the famous “Jacksonville Jam” when the ABB was allegedly officially formed. Duane, Dickey, Berry, Butch and Jaimo are all there, but Gregg is not, Reese Wynans is on keyboards. Dale Betts is also on vocals on one track however, and in the band introductions on track 3 of disc 2 the MC introduces all of the above except for Berry, saying "Richard" on Bass, who I believe to be Richard Price (previously of "The Load"). It has also been said that Larry Reinhardt (later of "Iron Butterfly") may also be on some of the tracks.

All of the above led me to believe that this "show" was actually an amalgamation of recordings from more than one gig, something that has now been confirmed by Richard Price himself, who wrote the following:

I am Richard Price you spoke of above who was in THE LOAD. I was also in the 2nd version of THE SECOND COMING (after Dickey and Berry left). The music you have, and it is probably very rough, is a mixture of several gigs. Some of the tunes were at the CEDAR HILLS ARMORY. The tunes where you described an MC naming me instead of Berry were at THE JACKSONVILLE COLISEUM in Jacksonville beach. The dates are different depending on which venue we were at. I have all the dates. They were all in 1969 though within a few months of each other. I can look up the exact dates of each gig later.

The term the Jacksonville Jam has been misrepresented for 40 some years. There was no one Jacksonville Jam. There were many jams over a period of months. During one of those jams the configuration of what became the ABB was on stage. We recorded many nights of jams. There were several intense nights. After one of those nights there happened to be a jam that Duane was particularly impressed by and the future ABB members happened to be in that jam.

The tapes you have are shows done by THE LOAD & the 1st version of THE SECOND COMING (with Dickey, Dale, John Meeks, Berry, and Reese). These two bands threw the jams and Jaimoe, Duane & Butch Trucks were guests sitting in. This is why you don't hear Gregg. He wasn't in town yet. Some of the tunes you are listening to were 60's cover songs by the 1st Second Coming. Some of the other tunes were Jacksonville jams. I don't know if you have them all. You'd have to give me a list.

Berry and I traded basses all night in these jams. The members of the LOAD were, Richard Price (me), Larry Reinhardt, & Monty Young. So it is true that Larry is on some of these jams.

I have the masters of all of this music and I am going to improve them in sound quality as best I can and put them out along with the never released SECOND COMING album. The Load took John Meeks and Reese and added them to the Load to form a new band after Dickey and Berry left and we kept the name SECOND COMING because 3 of the 5 of us had been in the 1st version. It also was a big draw.

Subsequent to the above, Richard was provided with the following track listing and commented further as below:

CD 1:
1. Don't Want You No More
2. Rock Me Baby
3. Crossroads
4. Born In Chicago
5. Willie Jean Jam
6. Born Under A Bad Sign

CD 2:
1. She Has Funny Cars
2. Hey Joe (Duane on vocals)
3. New Shoes Blues > introductions
4. Travellin' Music Jam

As far as the song list above, the first 7 are the original SECOND COMING (with Dickey and Berry still in it). The next two are one of the Jacksonville jams at the Cedar Hills Armory. I was playing bass with Duane and Rhino on those. Dickey sang the Shoes Blues one and Duane sang Hey Joe. The last one was live at the Jacksonville Beach Coliseum. I was playing bass on that as well. That's the one with the MC (Alan Facemier our manager).

There is a long 19 min jam that is missing from your collection. It may have been one of the ones Duane talked about inspiring him to start the ABB. I think there may be one more I haven't heard yet. I am trying to get it. The tapes you have have been copied over and over again to the point of bad distortion. I have the originals and plan to create a CD set called the Birth of Southern Rock as soon as I can clean them up.

One thing I want to make clear. Out of all of the Jacksonville jams, we would go home after playing until sunrise and stay up and listen to the music from the night before. There were several long spontaneous jams with different people trading places playing. I have a 19 minute one that the tape ran out on so it was really longer than that. Duane loved all of those long jams but I think that one of them may have stood out more to him. It probably had the original guys who would become the ABB without Gregg in that particular jam. Gregg was not in town yet for most of the jams. What I'm saying is that one jam may have made him make his final decision on who he would start the band with and when Gregg hit town they started rehearsing their original tunes which were mostly Gregg and Dickey's. You could call that The Jacksonville Jam but it has to stay in context of many jams that formed the dual and triple part harmonys on guitars. Those harmony guitar ideas started spontaneously in the jams between Dickey, Rhino & Duane. Later when they began to put songs together, they used these harmony ideas as part of their arrangements that the world fell in love with.

05/04/69 @ Central City Park, Macon (1 disc)

There has previously been a question mark over the legitimacy of this one, as the Park that the band were more famously known to play in was Piedmont Park in Atlanta, and according to people who attended those shows the first such free show was a week after the alleged date of this show. It has been confirmed by Macon residents, however, that the band did indeed play gigs in Central City Park in Macon, so the purported venue for this recording may well be legitimate. Whether the date is correct or not is still debatable, but the tracks, and the versions of them, are certainly of the era, and the disc is not an obvious compilation of tracks from other known shows. (Note that some traded versions of this show have the 3 tracks from 01/20/70 as filler tracks on the end).

01/16/70 @ Fillmore West, San Francisco (1 disc)

01/26/70 (aka 01/20/70) @ University Of California, Riverside (1 disc)

There are only three genuine tracks from this date – “Blues Jam”, “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” & “Oh Pretty Woman” – but most versions also have “Dreams” as a filler track, which is actually from the 02/01/71 Whiskey A Go-Go show.

Whilst 01/20/70 is the date that this show has always been traded under, the correct date is thought to be 01/26/70. The first piece of evidence doubting the 01/20 date is the following that is published in the UCR (University of California – Riverside) timeline database:

Jan. 24, 1970 -- The Allman Brothers Band spend the afternoon playing soulful rock on the grassy knoll near the bell tower. Crowd size varies all day.

The ABB database has them listed as playing the Whiskey A-Go-Go in Los Angeles from Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25th inclusive, so with Riverside being a suburb of LA it would make sense that the free gig was during this time. However, the ABB database also has them listed as playing the Fillmore West in San Francisco from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th inclusive, so as they were on the west coast for that entire period then either date could potentially be true.

Further enlightenment is provided by a friend of the taper who was in attendance, “tonewoods”, who wrote the following:

OK, if I had to bet the farm on a date, I would go with the 26th...

I'm probably the source for the 20th date, based on who-knows-what 35 years ago...
This was way before I had access to the Whisky dates, the internet, etc. etc...
It was a guess, and in retrospect, a pretty good one...
I used to trade tapes heavily back in the day (including this one), and that's how the date got written into the record....

OK, here's what I do know...

Duane told me that they had just come from the Whiskey the previous evening, and I got the impression they were just killing time on a beautiful January day in the California desert on their way to the next gig...
They had a Winnebago, and an equipment truck...
I'd say this gig took place on a weekday. I remember cutting classes, and Craig (the taper) was on his way to class w/tape recorder in hand, by chance...

What circulates is probably my tape transfer (especially if your copy has the Whiskey "Dreams" tacked onto it)...
For you folks who haven't had a listen to the tape, Duane's solo on "Oh Pretty Woman" is worth the price of admission...
It smokes, and really stands the test of time, and just hints at what the band sounded like that day...

As the 24th was a Saturday, this info would seem to conflict with the UCR database.

“tonewoods goes on to say:

They just played the Whiskey the night before, and were not in any hurry to get anywhere, much less hustle back into LA, set up again, and resume their Whiskey engagement...

As the final gig at the Whiskey was Sunday 25th, then this seems like a pretty convincing argument for Monday 26th being the correct date.

02/11/70 @ Fillmore East, NYC (1 disc)
02/14/70 @ Fillmore East, NYC (1 disc)

The above two shows fall into a grey area with regards to tradability, because there was a commercial release by Grateful Dead Records – “Fillmore East Feb ‘70” – that is a compilation of tracks from these two shows. The commercial CD is no longer available however, and it seems unlikely that it will ever be re-released, so let your conscience guide you. This compilation also crops up in trading circles listed as 02/13/70, and although the ABB did play that night, 02/11 and 02/14 are the only known traded recordings and the compilation known as 02/13/70 is therefore a bogus show.

03/13/70 @ The Warehouse, New Orleans (1 disc)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

04/04/70 @ Ludlow Garage, Cincinnatti (2 discs)

This show is not considered to be tradable any longer due to the commercial release “Live At Ludlow Garage 1970”, which is still available. The show as originally traded is complete, however, including the track “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” which was omitted from the commercially released version.

04/28/70 @ SUNY Gym, Stony Brook (2 discs)
{scotiadave remaster available}

The Mountain Jam on the two disc version of this show is still incomplete (cutting out before the end) however, it is 7 minutes longer than the MJ on the one disc version of this show that also circulates in the trading circles (perhaps curtailed by a bootlegger to get it to fit on one disc).

05/02/70 @ Swarthmore College (2 discs)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

05/??/70 @ Georgian Terrace Hotel Ballroom – Atlanta (1 disc - partial)
{CaptSkipper Remaster – “Peach Cobbler 6”}

Currently, there is only the final tune from the main set (Mountain Jam) and the encore (Don’t Want You No More / It’s Not My Cross To Bear) available. It is hoped that the rest of the show will be transcribed from analogue tape to digital and remastered by Skip at sometime in the future. This is a contender for the best version of “Mountain Jam” by the original band, played with dynamic enthusiasm, and I eagerly look forward to being able to hear the rest of this show, the full track listing of which is as follows:

Statesboro Blues > Jam
Trouble No More
Every Hungry Woman
Elizabeth Reed
Outskirts of Town
Whipping Post
Mountain Jam

Don’t Want You No More >
It’s Not My Cross To Bear

For those interested in the basic background behind this recording, the following are a few snippets of quotes by Ann Sandlin:

The tape with the show was discovered in a trunk along with a number of other historically interesting tapes Johnny had long thought were stolen when our garage was cleaned out several years ago. It took a while before we even listened to the tapes and then a while longer before Johnny transferred the Mountain Jam to DAT.

It wasn't long after the music was transferred that a copy of the DAT was given to KW with the caveat he had to promise to not try to do anything with it. Johnny didn't think it would be anything Polygram would be interested in, but he felt honor bound to offer it to them in hopes the band and Berry and Duane's heirs would benefit from any sales. Polygram wasn't interested and the tape sat in our safe for a few more years.

After the record company passed, Johnny was all for releasing it for trading, however the original quality of the tape wasn't very good. When Skip offered his mastering services if we ever needed them, we sent him the Mountain Jam. Skip worked on it for several weeks before he felt it was ready to go and now, it's finally out there for everyone to enjoy.

At the time Skip was working on the CD we were trying to figure out where (and when) it was recorded. The box had Atlanta written on it and after doing some research Skip came up with the date listed on the album (5/23/70). Since the CD has been released and listened to, Johnny remembered the tape had been recorded at Alex Cooley's Ballroom.

I talked more with Johnny and got some additional information he remembered....sometimes he has no idea what he knows until I drag it out of him....but the tape for certain was recorded in Atlanta at an event promoted by Alex Cooley. I don't know who recorded it, but Duane got it to Johnny to keep.

The date on the original “Peach Cobbler 6” has since been proved to be wrong, it is still not known what the correct date is, but the general consensus due to the development level of the Mountain Jam is that it is from spring 1970, probably May. One thing that has been verified is the venue, which is the Ballroom at the Georgian Terrace Hotel in Atlanta.

Many thanks to Skip for his unending diligence in remastering this gem, to Ann for making sure this was available for us all to enjoy, to Johnny for keeping this treasure for us and of course to Duane who was absolutely on fire this night and surely must have realised what a wonderful recording it was that he was passing on to his friend.

06/14/70 @ Piedmont Park, Atlanta (1 disc)

There are only three genuine tracks from this date – “Oh Pretty Woman”, “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” & “Blues Jam” (a different jam to the one on 01/20/70) – but most versions also have a “Mountain Jam” filler track, which is actually from the 09/27/70 Piedmont Park show.

07/03/70 @ Atlanta Pop Festival, Byron (2 discs)
07/05/70 @ Atlanta Pop Festival, Byron (2 discs)

{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

The above two shows are not considered to be tradable any longer due to the commercial release “Live At The Atlanta International Pop Festival”, which is still available.

07/10/70 (aka 07/26/70) @ SUNY Gym, Stony Brook (1 disc)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

Whilst 07/26/70 is the date that this show has always been traded under, the correct date is actually 07/10/70.

The first piece of evidence regarding the correct date for the show was provided by Don (dzobo) Sobocinski, who was attending S.U.N.Y. at the time. He wrote the following:

I'd like to clear up the date regarding the band's performance at Stony Brook in July (1970). During that summer, Stony Brook ran a special summer concert series that as an SB student on Long Island I had a particular interest in. The Allman Brothers only performed once (that summer), and that was as an opener for Mountain. I was at that show. Based on the work I was doing that summer, I could not have attended a Sunday show. I was working at Jones Beach and management requested that you work on weekends (especially Sundays, by far the busiest day) and take your off days Monday through Friday. 7/10/70 was a Friday and 7/26/70 a Sunday, so the show that actually occurred has to be 7/10/70. I know all the tape copies continue to list 7/26/70, and I believe that the set list and locale are correct, but the date is 7/10/70. Specifically I remember the show I attended opened with "Don't Keep Me Wonderin" which was a pretty rare event. I also recall "Stormy Monday" and "Mountain Jam".

The second set of clues come from the ABB database. It has S.U.N.Y. shows listed under both dates, however, for the 7/10/70 show, the database states that the date has been verified by a ticket stub, whereas for the 7/26/70 show, it states that according to the archivist for Mountain they were in Jacksonville on this night playing with Jethro Tull, and so could not have played at SUNY with the ABB this night.

The final verification came from Skip (captskipper) Littlewood, who wrote:

To further comment on the verification of the 7/10/70 date, I contacted a fellow about a year ago who was on the StonyBrook sound and light crew who actually helped put that tape together. Just for everyone's info & records, the circulating material is in fact a compilation of the early and late shows from 7/10/70 and not one show.

It is therefore confirmed that 07/10/70 is the correct date for the show.

NOT FOR TRADE – ABB Archive #1 Commercial Release

12/31/70 @ The Warehouse, New Orleans (3 discs)
{V2 extraction by John Dubois available}

John Dubois (who worked at the Warehouse and later taped the 09/16/71 show) tells us:

The taper of the New Years Eve ABB 12/31/70 Warehouse show was my friend Chaffe, in the audience with a brand new invention called the portable stereo cassette recorder. Chaffe and his high school buddies, ultra-ABB-fans, with the intention of just having a home personal recording of the band recorded the show, complete with comical comments & NYE interviews: ("A man from Lafayette..."; "Sit down you bastards !" ; "Fkn dynamite man"... "yeah they are"!).

01/17/71 @ Syria Mosque, Pittsburg (1 disc)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

01/23/71 @ Capitol Theater, Port Chester (1 disc)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

01/29/71 @ Winterland, San Francisco (1 disc)
(aka 01/28/71 @ Fillmore West, San Francisco)

{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

Whilst this audience recording has always been traded as 01/28/71 @ Fillmore West, San Francisco, there is considerable evidence to suggest that this is in fact neither the correct date nor the correct venue for this recording. Regarding the date, “Wolfgang’s Vault” has a partial soundboard recording of tracks that are clearly from the same show, and that is listed as 01/29/71. Regarding the venue, according to Kim Payne (ABB Roadie) the 29th was actually played at Winterland, not the Fillmore West. The ABB were booked to play the 28th, 29th, 30th & 31st at the Fillmore, but after playing there on the 28th for some reason (either technical or booking issues) they had to move over to Winterland for the 29th, then go back to the Fillmore for the 30th & 31st. The final piece of evidence comes from a radio recording that is in circulation where the DJ announces “And now, live from Winterland, here’s Whipping Post from the Allman Brothers”, and it is the same version of Whipping Post that is on the traded show. So, in conclusion, this recording is almost certainly 01/29/71 @ Winterland, San Francisco and not 01/28/71 @ Fillmore West, San Francisco.

01/31/71 @ Fillmore West, San Francisco (2 discs)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

02/01/71 (aka 10/02/71) @ Whiskey A Go-Go, LA (1 disc)

There are only five genuine tracks from this date – “Statesboro Blues”, “Don’t Keep Me Wondering”, “Midnight Rider”, “Dreams” & “Hot ’Lanta” – but most traded versions also have a “Mountain Jam” filler track, which is actually from the 07/21/71 Central Park (late) show.

There has been some debate over the correct date for this show, which is also often traded as 10/02/71. There is not much of a clue in the set list, as the tracks on this recording could be from either date. There is also not much of a geographical clue from the known concert dates adjacent to the two possible dates either, because 02/01 is directly after the four shows at the Fillmore West (& Winterland) in San Fransisco, and the October date is sandwiched between a San Diego gig and a Washington State gig at the start of an autumn West Coast run. Perhaps Sat 2nd Oct, with a known gig on the Friday before and the Sunday after, might be considered the more likely of the two dates, especially with Mon 1st Feb being after a Thursday to Sunday four day run in San Francisco, but this is not conclusive.

The most convincing evidence in favour of the October date is a series of photographs of Duane (allegedly) from the “Whiskey” where he is playing his Les Paul Tobacco Sunburst, which he did not get until June ’71. If these photos are from the “Whiskey”, then it may well be that the ABB played there on both dates, because the overwhelming evidence that is in favour of this recording being from the February date comes from the recording itself, where at the end of the last track Duane says to the audience “That’s a new song we just played for you, it’s called Hot ‘Lanta”. This track was far from new by October. Furthermore, in mid '71 Duane and Dickey switched their order of solos on "Statesboro Blues" and on this recording it is in the earlier format. So, in conclusion, these last two facts make Whiskey A Go-Go verifiable as 02/01/71.

02/28/71 @ Brewer Field House, Columbia (2 discs)
{Masahiko Remaster available}
{CaptSkipper Remaster – work in progress 2007}

There are two sources of this show, a partial show that is of reasonably good quality (A- ?) and a complete show that is of poorer quality (B+ ?). What is normally traded is a hybrid, mixed source show.

03/13/71 @ Fillmore East, NYC (2 discs)

This show is not considered to be tradable due to the commercial release “Live At Fillmore East” that is still available and contains a compilation of tracks from different nights / shows of this run. This is a partial recording of the 03/13 late show comprising six tracks, four of which are versions that are on the commercial release, and two “Statesboro Blues” & “One Way Out” that are not.

03/20/71 @ The Warehouse, New Orleans (3 discs)

{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

04/??/71 @ Ski Lodge (Gatlinburg Studios) (2 discs)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

This original 1 disc compilation has been remastered and split onto two discs, and two bonus tracks have been added at the end. The first bonus track is an alternate studio version of “Loan Me A Dime” by Boz Scaggs with Duane, and the second bonus track is the only known live recording of “Little Martha” by Duane, which was recorded backstage at the Municipal Auditorium in Birmingham on 06/16/71.

05/02/71 @ CCNY, NYC (2 discs)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

05/09/71 @ Overton Park, Memphis (1 disc)

06/05/71 @ The Warehouse, New Orleans (1 disc)
{V2 extraction by John Dubois available}

John Dubois (who worked at the Warehouse and later taped the 09/16/71 show) tells us:

The tapers of ABB 06/05/71 are the same crew that taped the New Years Eve ABB 12/31/70 Warehouse show, being my friend Chaffe and his high school buddies, ultra-ABB-fans, with the intention of just having a home personal recording of the band. So, Chaffe was the source for ABB 06/05/71.

06/16/71 @ Municipal Auditorium, Birmingham (1 disc)

There are two sources of this show, one complete and one partial, the partial recording being slightly better quality than the complete one. A hybrid of the two recordings has yet to be compiled.

06/27/71 @ Fillmore East, NYC (1 disc)
{CaptSkipper Remaster available}

This show is no longer tradable since the release of the deluxe version of “Eat A Peach”, which has this show as a bonus second disc and is therefore now commercially available. The commercial release does not have the introduction by Bill Graham, however, neither does it have all of the comments by Duane between tracks.

The second of only four known recordings with Duane playing Blue Sky.

There was a one disc partial show version available as a bootleg that was slightly better quality than the two disc complete show (although from the same source tape). Masahiko’s remaster combines the partial bootleg version with the missing tracks from the original source to provide a complete show.

09/16/71 @ The Warehouse, New Orleans (3 discs)
{CaptSkipper Remaster of V3 extraction available}
{V4 extraction by John Dubois available}
The third of only four known recordings with Duane playing Blue Sky.

This show is considered by most to be as good as it gets with regards to Duane era ABB shows. The most recent remaster of it was completed by CaptSkipper in January 2007 from John Dubois’ V3 extraction from the original tapes, and his comments were as follows:

“Well, after about a year of it I’ve finally finished up the new updated 9/16/71. The source is from the original John Dubois recording of the Warehouse show in New Orleans. John told me on the phone that the tape deck used for the new transfer is a Sony TC 355, on which he re-aligned the play heads and added an additional potentiometer to control the tape speed due to linear speed-ups and slow-downs on the original tape. This source is the 3rd transfer John has done of this superb show, and his best effort yet as far as I’m concerned. The original deck used for recording the show was hidden off to the side of the stage, and the AKG Dynamic vocal microphones were hidden (not hanging) in the rafters. According to John, the silent gap in the Whipping Post was not due to the recorder running out of tape, but rather when he actually had the opportunity to get to the tape deck undetected to flip the tape to side two. The Whipping Post silent gap has again been patched, as in my other re-master of it, although I like this patch better (my apologies to the purist collectors for repairing the gap). Along with the normal mastering procedures, a great deal of the time spent on this project was aimed at trying to bring up Gregg’s vocals that were low in the original recording. I feel I was successful bringing the vocal presence up to some extent and hope the traders enjoy this updated re-master (which by the way probably won’t be the last effort on this great recording by John Dubois). Many thanks to John for having the foresight to record this, and I also thank John for the opportunity to work on his show” – CaptSkipper (Jan 2007).

John DuBois has since made a new (version 4) extraction which is the cleanest yet, but this has not yet been remastered to bring out the vocals. John's story regarding the taping is documented in: "The Taping Story of 9/16/71, ABB at a Warehouse", link below: p;file=viewthread&tid=80657#pid

09/17/71 @ Mid-South Coliseum, Memphis (1 disc)

09/19/71 @ SUNY, Stony Brook (1 disc)

This show is not considered to be tradable due to the ABB Archive #2 commercial release. The ABB Archive #2 is a two disc version, and is the fourth of only four known recordings with Duane playing Blue Sky. The originally traded version, however, is a one disc version that when compared to the commercial release would appear to be missing “Blue Sky”, "You Don’t Love Me” and "Mountain Jam”. It comprises seven tracks, five of which are the same versions that are on the commercial release, but two “One Way Out” & “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” that are different, suggesting that perhaps the commercial release is a combination of tracks from the early and late shows, whereas the originally traded show might be just from the early show.
