Can some of you good people help me out?

Many years back I saw the ABB on our local PBS station and as I recall it was titled 'An Evening with the Allmann Brothers Band'. (or something similar to that) The band included Dickey, Warren, Allen and they did a great show indeed. My lousy memory tells me it probably was recorded right after 'Shades of Two Worlds' was released as they opened with 'End of the Line' in that show.

The reason for this post is that I would LOVE to get a DVD or VHS copy of that show, but dont know who/how to go about inquiring about the broadcast. I checked the Public Broadcast System website long ago and found no leads.

You good folks got any info that would help? Thanks in advance and keep on rockin' !

I beleive it was an episode of Austin City Limits and unfortunatley, I do not believe PBS sells these back-episodes. If I remeber correctly, Greg sounded kinda' bad anyway.

I saw the episode a couple of years ago. I don't remember much about it, just remember it being on PBS and the show being Austin City Limits.

It was a phenomenal episode of Austin City Limits.

Gregg sounded different - a lower tone to his voice, ala the substance abusive early to mid 1990's.

This one was from 1996 if I recall.

The whole band was really, really on the mark.

I may have it on tape, I'll try to find it. No promises, but if I do I'll let you know.

Thanks to all you good folks that replied with some leads !

I agree JoJoDancer the episode was really good and I just miss hearing/seeing the Boys with Dickey, Warren and Allen all in there also. My son is 17 now and playing bass and I was telling him about Allen and wanted him to see/hear some ABB stuff with Allen playing.

Again thanks for the help to all you good people !

Peace!

That wasn't necessarily the Austin City Limits show; it sounds like an airing of the Great Woods Video. They have aired it a few times. I actually got my copy for donating money to PBS that night. Best $100 I ever spent. The Austin City Limits show wasn't from the Shades of Two Worlds era; Great Woods was. You shouldn't have any trouble getting Live at Great Woods. If it's not still in stores, it should be all over Amazon and Ebay. Get the video; the DVD is cut short.

You know, after a lil research I think youre right. There are indeed Live At Great Woods DVDs out there, but from what Ive read the DVD is condensed and has some narration talking over the show. Not good! Plus I was hoping to find the full show that has 'Goin Down the Road Feelin' Bad' and all those others from the show. Ole Warren harmonizes (sp?) so good in that accoustic set.

Gonna keep looking now that I know there is a difference between the DVD and the VHS version. Why would they put such a good show in digital quality only to mess it up with editting and voice overs. Ugh.

Thanks again to everyone!

I know you can find the VHS version at Amazon.com

Maybe you should check over at Hittinthenote.com too....

I would get the VHS if you want GDTRFB and all the rest....

Gregg did sound kind of bad on the ACL show, but Dickey sure did kick some ass. This is not a Dickey ruled or sucked reply, just a comment.

Should be easy to tell the difference. One was outdoors one was indoors.

The Austin City Limits has Warren ripping one of the best solos on Back Where It All Begins that I have ever seen. I have it on Video and the first time i watched it my wife came in and kind of wanted to turn it off. They launced into BWIAB and she said, "oh i like this song, wait." A couple of minutes later I kid you not we were both staring at Warren with our mouths open. When he finished his Solo we looked at each other and one of us said, "is the hair standing up on the back of your neck?" And the other just nodded uh huh!

That was the first time i ever saw her really get to go to that magical place the ABB can take you.

Before that she was pretty much a fan of the studio versions of the shorter sing along songs like Midnight Rider, Melissa and such.

I knew if I posted on this Forum you Brothers & Sisters would hook me up, THANKS.

One last question: that Hittin-the-Note merchandise page shows both the VHS and DVD versions for sale, but the descriptions BOTH show a songlist having 'Going Down the Road Feeling Bad'. Only reason I make mention of this is that I really enjoyed that accoustic set part, and have read that the DVD does not have it. Can anyone verify that?? Id much prefer to have that entire show on DVD for video/audio quality, but really wanted to see the whole show. (as I recall, that accoustic set ends with Dickey hammering the slide as the band breaks into a good version of 'Get On With You Life',, WHEW that sounded so awesome.

I sure wish the ABB boys would detour down this way (Houston) sometime soon, I need my Peach fix ! haha

The accoustic set ends with Dickey playing the outro of GDTRFB and then Warren coming in and playing over him for the slide intro to Hoochie Coochie Man. A great transition.

Couple of other ABB shows that might be available on tape from the early to mid 90's period are a show that VH-1 aired with the band playing at Crested Butte, Colo and a HOB show that was recorded in New Orleans. Remember watching both shows, if anyone as a copy of these shows recorded on HI-FI SP VHS, PM me, maybe we can work something out, as I DO have a copy of the Austin City Limits show (haven't watched it in awhile, might need to dig it out).

Okay friends I got the VHS finally and boy it was good to see that show again after all these years. Especially that accoustic set!

But you folks have me very curious about the Austin City Limits show. I never saw that one, and anyone know where I can buy it? Or can I send someone a blank tape or DVD for a copy? Thanks so much everyone for the info on this topic,, youve all been a great help.
