Duane's guitar playiing was out of this world, but I was just wondering if his voice can be heard singing on any ABB songs. If so, where would they be heard?
Thanks,
Mike

Hi,

You are able to hear him singing "Dimples" at Rudlow Garage footage of ABB, which is released as official.
Also there are a few more songs which are recorded for his solo album, and these can be heard at his 2 Anthology album.

He had backup vocals on a couple of Ronnie Hawkin's tracks.

I believe Masahiko gets footage and tape mixed up. Duane also sang Hey Joe with the Second Coming, as well as Dimples about 3 or 4 times (I think there are 3 on tape).

Hmmmm, English is difficult for Japanese.....
Yes I mixed up for using this word. I've been used "footage" as like gig, show, tape and so on.
I didn't notice it is used only for visual materials.
So sorry of my bad English usage.
Also I made a spell miss for "Ludlow Garage", no "Rudlow"......... so shame....

Another famous "Dimples" on tapes I know are from 12/31/'70 Warehouse show and 5/02/'70 Swarthmore College.

There is a boot album of the Allman Joys. The first part of the album consists of live material from a gig in Pensacola, FL. followed by some studio material.

Live
1. Help
2. Old Man River
3. Heart Full Of Soul
4. The Last Time
5. Are You Sincere
6. Carol
7. Outside Looking In
8. Good Lovin'
Studio
9. Outside Looking In
10. We Got To Get Out Of This Place
11. Just Like Me
12. My Girl
13. Nowhere Man
14. ?????
15. I'm Giving Up On You

Although one can not say for sure I am certain that Duane is contributing background harmony vocals. Specifically there are several instances where Duane's voice can clearly be heard when the band isn't playing. Using that as a means of ascertaining how his mic is equalized will help you to pick out his vocals during the songs. Listen to "Nowhere Man".

Additionally there are instances of what are certainly 3 and 4 part harmonies (Remember that they were only a 4 member band) during the live stuff. Specifically give a listen to their rendition of "Help" by the Beatles. Quite extraordinary stuff. Having been a professional musician for many years I can say this, "Help" has a chord structure that in and of itself is not overly complex for any band with a basic sense of competency. (Check out Deep Purple's version). However to play it and also attempt to cover all the harmony vocal parts, is an exercise that will clearly seperate the Beatles and the Allman Joys from the rest of the world. The Allman Joys nail that song perfectly and they are doing it live.

It was after hearing that version of Help that I understood why so many other fine musicians of that era raved about the Allman Joys with such superlative terms.

Hey! You're not stereotyping Japanese folks, are you?

Duane was not known for his singing. He even admitted that, one time, and in this, he is brother of mine, he said that when he ran into a tune he thought he could sing, he noticed that everybody didn't really look at him, they were playing fast, to get the tune over with pretty quick.

Me, too. When I was done, I'd say, "so what did you think of that?" And everybody would say, "Hey man, you turned in some good guitar work..."

Oh, well. He was on time and in tune and that was about all you were going to get.

Even though Duane claimed not to like singing very much (in an interview, he jokingly claimed his voice was a scapegoat for the band, IIRC), when he introduced it at Ludlow's Garage (4/4/70), he said, "We don't do this song very much, but I feel like singin' it so I guess that's what we're gonna do." or words to that effect. I don't know if this is on the official release and I'm at work so I can't check. Oh, the bummitude of being a wage slave instead of a free-spirited music devourer!

BTW, he wasn't half bad, either. I think if he'd really wanted to be a singer, he could have been a pretty good one. Think of Louis Armstrong. He didn't havea great voice from a purely musical standpoint, but he knew how to use it and that counts for a lot.

Well there is one simple overwhelming fact. To play guitar the way he did he had to have had a superb sense of pitch, harmony, control, and timing. Thus, I think we can safely assume that if Duane had desired to sing, he would have been capable.
