Of the songs the final version of the ABB performed live (and not just as a backing band to a guest performer), I wish these had been in rotation more often:

High Falls
True Gravity
Kind of Bird
High Cost of Low Living
Old Friend
Layla
Loan Me a Dime
Just Ain't Easy
Need Your Love So Bad
Oncoming Traffic
These Days
Why Does Love Have to Be Sad

Desdemona for sure
Kind of Bird (quintessential dickey imo)
High Cost of Low Living (outro live is sick)
Franklin's Tower (never seen live but would love to)
Stormy Monday (no slide from warren or derek, as much as I love it and don't get me wrong, its better with reverse bends and finger work imo)

All those songs that Gregg says he has been working on over the years.

Sorry couldn't resist.

It's kind of academic for us Europeans as they never played a note here after 1991 but let's play along anyway.

Nobody Knows

Lots of DB songs but then they didn't play those because they were DB songs, eg Seven Turns. BWIAB.

Of course significant circumstances prevented it being played more, but I loved JJ's Alley.

Wish there was a live version of Stand back with Duane.....Jelly Jelly is the exact same chord changes as outskirts and the same key.....I really think Jelly Jelly was an after thought for B&S and I don't think it was ever played live....

Not to say it's not a great version because it smokes but I really don't think they ever intended on playing it live and was album filler...

Nobody Knows. I wonder when the last time they played it?

Firing Line - Even though Gregg always butchered the lyrics.

And while a Gregg song, not ABB, I love the song Rain. I missed hearing it several years ago at the Beacon by one night. It was the year Gregg would do a small set after the set break with just him on a grand piano.

What's weird is Gregg gave songwriting credit when it was initially "Early Morning Blues" (the smoking outro on the B&S special edition is a revelation). Then he re-recorded the lyrics as "Jelly Jelly" but pulled a Robert Plant and claimed writing credit. Really odd considering he always gave credit on cover tunes. Still, although it's pretty standard slow blues, I think it's the track that really melds Dickey's stinging guitar and Chuck's piano better than any of the old blues tunes the Allmans did during the Chuck/Lamar era.

I do believe Billy Eckstine is the writer of Jelly Jelly

go to 1:48 to hear the vocals the 2nd and 3rd verse are identical as the ABB Jelly Jelly

I forgot to add Duane's Tune which was a song off Dickey's Pattern Disruptive. The Brother's played Duane's Tune occasionally during the 89 Tour. Another great Dickey instrumental

Why didn't they play shows with set-lists like this?......Throw the hard core fans a bone every once in a while? Jesus, the Dead did it ALL THE TIME.

Interesting question, some of the songs I thought were rarely played actually were played fairly often.

Yup, and Gregg claimed songwriting credit rather than crediting Eckstine and Hines. Pretty out of character for him.

High Cost Of Low Living and Egypt were the two best new songs the band played in the last 15 years, in my opinion. Of course, they very rarely played either of them, because.....wait, why didn't they play those more often again?

I was just listening to the excellent 7/24/05 Saratoga show, which features amazing, magical versions of both tunes. On the one hand, I was puzzled more than ever by why Egypt fell completely out of the rotation and High Cost became a rarity. This Saratoga version sounds the next big epic Allman Brothers classic, but it never quite took that spot.

On the other hand, look at the glass half-full. The Warren/Derek lineup did create some awesome tunes that hold up very well, even if they weren't played as often as I might have liked.
