Will anyone in this kind forum please help me out.
I am trying to track down some Grateful Dead shows
during which members of the Allman Brothers Band sat in,
most particularly Duane.

The friends I would normally seek this kind of information from
are more confused than usual on this score.

Dates and/or venues, anyone?

Thank you all kindly.

Well, to start with, the most celebrated ABB appearance with the Dead is probably Duane's cameo with them on 4/26/71 at the Fillmore East. Duane contributes his trademark licks on three tunes: "Sugar Magnolia," "Beat It on Down the Line," and "It Hurts Me Too." Excellent-quality tapes of this night are available (mixed down from multitracks, since the Dead were in the process of recording the landmark "Grateful Dead" live LP), although the rumor is that the Duane guitar parts were mixed louder and more prominently on a remix tape for the Duane Allman box set, which, alas, seems to be a dead issue at this point due to legal quagmires. In the meantime, we'll have to make do with the rough mixes.

There are several other instances in which the Dead and the Allmans shared the stage, both pre- and post-Duane.

Hey John - 2/11/70 - Dark Star > Spanish Jam > Lovelight (with Peter Green, Duane, Berry, Butch,Mick Fleetwood, Gregg and Pigpen trading vocals on Lovelight etc). Trust me, you want it. It might be the greatest jam you have ever heard.

What is available of the 2/11/70 show fits on two discs including the end of the early show and most of the Late Show, including what I listed above.

I'm gonna be real busy with Magic Box #2 soon, but if you want to send blanks for this show drop me a line.

I'll give you a shout if I come up empty.
Thanks

Just to add to the list,

7/13/72 - Jerry & Bob sit in with ABB; this one is v.rare, though I know at least one trader on here that has it!

7/7/69 - it is rumoured that Duane & Gregg sit in on Lovelight (and aural evidence does indicate another guitar to Garcia & Weir, somewhere in the mix), though this is not proven, AFAIK

5/10/70 - ABB allegedly jammed with the GD on Will The Circle Be Unbroken; no tape circulates!

Just for your information - from what mike mentioned above - I believe the GD 7/28/73 Watkin's Glen show only circulates in a pretty poor audience tape.

If you want a nice GD experience from that incredible event - check out the "soundcheck" from 7/27/73 instead. It's a soundboard and it's virtually one whole set of music. No ABB participation though.

A portion of this appears on the So Many Roads box set (track 5 on disc 2, "Watkins Glenn Soundcheck Jam").

I've been told that there is also a pretty degraded chopped up SBD of 7/28/73 that has been circulating for a couple years as well. I don't think I've ever heard that one.

That 7/27/73 Soundcheck Jam is damn smokin!! And from what I remember it flows into a Wharf Rat that is complete bliss.
