I was wondering if any ABB songs have been covered. It seems like alot of bands have tribute CD's out there(tribute to Zeppelin, Pickin on series, Greatful dead etc...). I know the Bro's have a Pickin On Bluegrass cd, but I was unsure if any of their tunes have been covered. I really cant' think of any off hand. I do have a version of Midnight Rider with Willie Nelson and Ben Harper from his last live one with a bunch of guest artist.

I've heard concerts in which they are covered, for example
Moe - Liz Reed, Southbound
SCI - Liz Reed, Southbound, Jessica
OAR - Melissa

I seem to remember Joe Cocker and Buddy Miles covering "Midnight Rider"
Molly Hatchet covered "Dreams"
Charlie Daniels has covered some ABB songs, although I don't remember which ones.
Jerry Douglas does a fine version of "Little Martha"
Phil & Friends (w/ Warren and Jimmy Herring) frequently covered "Blue Skies"
Also Joan Baiz coverd "Blues Skies" on one her albums
David Allen Coe has been known to do "Soulshine" in concert.

almost forgot,

Hank Williams, Jr. did a cover of "Come and Go Blues" on one of his albums.
Vassar Clements recorded a great cover of "Jessica" on one his albums back in the seventies and has been know to do the song in concert.

The Steve Kimock Band just covered "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" for the first time just 2 weeks ago - I heard the tapes- very very tasty. It was from the all request show at The Fillmore. Pete Sears sat in on keys and Martin Fierro on sax - sounded wonderful...the best non-ABB version I've heard.

If you want to hear it for your self, the download is now available from DigitalSoundboard.net. This is SKB's version of "Instant Live" recordings - they are mixed beautifully - very clear and balanced!

If you haven't really heard Kimock before this is a good place to start...or if you have well...

I highly recommend it...Many other SKB shows available as well.

Phil & Friends also do Mountain Jam once in a while, not the full one but a pretty healthy dose. Mule does Mountain Jam and did Gambler's Roll. I'm pretty sure there's a Pickin' On the Allman Brothers Band somewhere out there. RAQ has done Whipping Post. So have a lot of other bands. Phish I believe may have done it once. Mule has also done Dreams. Believe me, there are a huge number of bands that have covered ABB material. What is mentioned here doesn't even break the surface. I believe Lefty Collins & the No Mercy Band as well as the Skydogs do a few covers here and there?

The Black Crowes used to play "Dreams" quite a bit on some live gigs.

There is a Pickin' on the ABB CD out there.
David Allan Coe did a bunch of covers back in the mid 80's at his live shows.

Joe Cocker did Midnight Rider, completely reworked it.

However, my favorite cover is Buddy Miles' Ottis Reddingish take on "Dreams". Check it out. He also did "Don't Keep Me Wonderin" and "Midnight Rider".

Frank Zappa's version of Whipping Post is a tribute to some guy in Finland(one o' them there furrin' places!) who kept yelling it in concert. Frank's comment was that he must have looked a lot like Duane Allman. It's on Us or Them- Features some great vocals from ( Ithink) Napoleon Brock and some wicked guitar from Stevie Vai, who later gets a spanking on that album!!

As for Molly's Hatchett job on Dreams- I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!

OH- what about Gregg's reworkings of classic ABB songs?
His versions almost qualify as covers, esp Midnight Rider and the acoustic Whipping Post

Phish has done Whipping Post more than once. I think they're version is pretty lame (sounds empty with only one guitar and one drummer). Has Robert Randolph covered some ABB?

Randolph hasn't done ABB, although he has done many other bands - I wouldn't be surprised to see him start to do some - maybe Southbound

Yes, they've definitely done whipping post, with Derek on lead to boot--I was there, and it was one of the sickest WP I've seen, and that includes all of the ABB versions. They also did You Don't Love Me > One Way Out > You Don't Love Me, with Derek sitting in, on 7/11/98.

Kevn Kinney's Sun-Tangled Angel Revival also does Soulshine, sandwiched into a different song, on occasion...caught that in Orlando this past January, but they've played it more than then.

Oh yeah, and at a free show here in Memphis, this guy named Frankie Perez who was opening for pat McGee, played Whipping Post with his band, and it was awful.

Personally, one of my favorites has always been Hank Williams Jr. covering "Come & Go Blues." I'm not quite sure, but i believe that is on Hank's "Whiskey Bent & Hellbound" album.

I wish I had a dime for every time I covered WB&HB in a country dive.

Agreed. Phish is a lousy cover band as well. There, I said it.

Then don't share it here. A good deal of us here appreaciate Phish, and everybody here has to respect their musicianship. Also, Phish has done some covers WAY better than the original band, Good Times Bad Times, to name one. Phish is a band composed of great musicians, the best of their class. And dont overdo the "ph" prefix, please...

Well you gotta respect that some people dont like the band...like me. I like a few songs, but mostly I dont dig them, especially there main fan base, ugh. I dunno, to me its just like its just mostly a lot of musical rambling and doodling, and Im all for jamming out, but I guess im more into jazz like jamming, where everyone gets there turn and shines. Wish they were a instrumental band with more structure, to me there songs are just thrown together in funny words, thats cool sometimes and I know there having fun, but every song is like some weird thing about nothing, and then Trey has a sweet solo though. Just aint mah thang I reckon'
