If you mean songs that never saw the light of day, I'm not so sure. They are pretty economical when it comes to songwriting, so my guess is nearly everything they've written and felt was worthy of release we have heard. I'm sure Gregg and Dickey both have tons of demos (as we saw with One More Try, Gregg's anthology).

I do know a whole bunch of shows were unearthed in a vault about 10 years ago, but I think the Allmans lost the rights to those shows after some lengthy court battles. I'm sure someone out there has more information than I do on all of this, however.

Dickey had an unreleased country album in the early 1980's that some have on bootleg. "Nancy" was one of the songs from those sessions.

BHLT recorded an album circa 1983 that included "No One To Run With." None of it has ever been released...

The Allman Brothers have lots of unreleased music, and Tour Mystic and Archivist Supreme Kirk West is constantly sorting through it for new Archive releases. Until the 9/19/71 Stonybrook cd was released, I had never heard Duane play "Blue Sky" live, and I thought I was a pretty big Allman Brothers fan at the time, although I didn't work for Hittin' the Note yet. I remember how amazed I was that such an incredible performance of one of the band's best songs had gone unheard for so long. Better late than never!

The newest Archive is #4, from 5/1/73 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY, and we are currently taking pre-orders for it at hittinthenote.com. This show features the material from "Brothers and Sisters" like "Ramblin' Man" and "Jessica" when it was fresh and shiny and new.

I think the original poster meant unreleased studio
material....and I would have to venture the very
unknowledgeable opinion that the cupboards are
completely bare.

Does anyone know if there are any live recordings of Duane playing on some of the studio songs like Blackhearted Woman, Not my Cross to Bear or Revival? I know they didn't usually play these live but do any recordings exist?

There are live shows traded with Duane playing on all of those songs. One of the earliest15 minute drum solos I have heard is a Blackhearted Woman.

From the first two LPs the only song I haven't heard Duane play Live on is Please Call Home. From the one side of Eat a Peach that Duane was on it would be Standback that i have never heard him play live. PM me I'll send you some samples.

I thought it was great when they included the Gregg-Dickey song Let Me Ride on the Dreams box set -- somewhere there is an unreleased version of that song, a much longer one (6-8 min or so) with Gregg vocals and Butch/Jaimoe solo.

I don't recall that being on there, only version I've heard are on Seven Turns and the 1981 hotel jam on the Capital Theater dvd.

Unless you mean "One More Ride" which I think the whole band wrote for Idlewild South. Rave On always reminded me of that song.

You're right PCBob, it is One More Ride -- my bad. It's credited to Gregg and Dickey on the Dreams box (instrumental, 2:40 in length). This longer version is from those same ISouth outtakes.
Gosh -- come to think of it, the Outlaws do a song called One More Ride too, from their Soldiers of Fortune album from the late 80s or so.

Yes, there is unreleased studio ABB music. Some of it is available in trading circles or on bootlegs.

There is the 4 song pre-first album demo with
DON'T WANT YOU NO MORE (non segued with...)
IT'S NOT MY CROSS TO BEAR
TROUBLE NO MORE
(the version of DREAMS from the box set was from these sessions)

There is also a cool version of
I'M GONNA MOVE TO THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN from the 2nd album
as well as another song that I can't think of
and a full 7 minute version of ONE MORE RIDE with vocals from Gregg. (Much cooler than what is on the box set, that version is a shortened instrumental version of the backing track)

There are some jams from the BROTHERS & SISTERS & WIN, LOSE OR DRAW era.

Then there were a few songs from the 90's that were recorded. (As far as I know, NONE of these have leaked out)
There is definitely a version of ROCKING HORSE from the WHERE IT ALL BEGINS sessions with Gregg singing.

Then there are some songs recorded in 1995 for a new album that never materialized:
WORRIED DOWN WITH THE BLUES
I KNOW I OUGHTTA LEAVE
YOU CAN'T GET TO HEAVEN ON A TEN DOLLAR BILL

I think there are some others that I might have forgot, plus there's a good chance that there might be more we don't even know about...

The Brothers recorded "Rockin' Horse" with Gregg singing it for Where It All Begins album. I'd like to hear a version with Dickey on guitar and G.A. singing it. When it didn't appear on that album, Warren began playing it with Gov't Mule.

I'm not sure that it is true that the ABB went into the studio in 1995. I believe Butch indicated here before that they did not. They play those songs in 1995 in concert. Thankfully, 3 Dollar bill was shelved.
