I was just wondering if there are any recordings of Duane playing Stand Back live. I know it was the last song he recorded (right?) and was wondering if they ever played it live while he was still alive. I saw Derek play it in Charlotte on 10/2 and started to imagine what Duane would've done with that song if he had the chance.

None has been found. The song was cut as an instrumental with Gregg adding the lyrics after Duane passed.

Probably what Derek is doing with it right now...ripping it a new one. Derek has added about 4 more gears to the outro solo to that song which is one of my faves. Oh, and no Duane never got a chance to play it live...

What a shame.....

Duane Allman, one of the greatest players of the 20 century, died at the age of 24.

How many songs he could play live..................

As it is, what a treasure that we have the very few live versions of Blue Sky that he played on -- and that he played on the EAP version. I never tire of the magic of that standarbearing studio cut, and am all ears when listening to the subtle differences in the 9/16 and 9/19 versions.

Too true...I only have the Stonybrook version but it is amazing. It's sad that he never played Stand Back live...I guess it just makes the version on EAP that much more special.

My understanding is that the lines "Thirty minutes after my ship set sail, She put up a sign and my house began to wail", came from Gregg leaving his house to meet up with everybody to go out on tour, only to forget something and go back home, to find is wife and or girlfriend having a large time with a couple of his local running buddies.

Um, yeah, the EAP version of "Blue Sky" set a standard for guitar tone and phrasing that still stands 35 years later. I have the live Stonybrook 9/19/71, but what is this 9/16 live version of which you speak? I was unaware that there was more then one live version of the song. Please enlighten me.

It's from the Warehouse -- it's closer in length to the studio version than 9/19, about 6-7 minutes. It's a magnificent overall show -- vocals are a little low but other than that very listenable indeed. This is a traded show, not an archives release or anything.
The only other version I know of w/Duane is 10/15 from Clemson U., his second to last show, but poor sound quality.
Happy Thanksgiving!

9/16/71 is certainly one of the most coveted of all The ABB bootlegs out there.
Excellent show and decent sound quality. This is also one of the longer of the early shows...

No offense to anyone, but if that Clemson version is listed as a B+, would the 8/15 version be listenable?

Also, only one drummer, that being Jaimoe who Butch said that his style was more suited than Butch's at the time for a very funky ABB song. Yeah, just for fun, put your head phones on and turn the sucker up so you can imangine what Gregg listened to when overdubbing his vocals during his return to the EAP sessions after 10/29/71. Gregg sings his heart out on this one.

It's my fav tune to turn up LOUD!!!

Sorry Stephen . . . that was a mis-type on my part . . . I meant to give Clemson B- as the NYC Academy of Music is slightly better at B (all very much IMHO). 9/16 & 9/19 remain the only two versions really worth listening to on a regular basis

Would anyone be interested in trading for this 9/16/71 show?? I have some Allmans, Led Zep, Etc to trade. I'd really like to get a copy. If so please PM me. Thanks, and as for Stand Back, I love this tune. This is how they all were growing as musicians. I think it is a really hot song and awesome tone.
