The new ABB archive cd from 5/1/73 is officially in stock! We've been listening to it here in the Hittin' the Note office, and it's SO worth the wait. One of the best "Elizabeth Reeds" I've ever heard just finished up, similar but superior to the Wipe the Windows version. If you're a fan of long jams like I am, check out the last three tunes on Disc Two:

Les Brers in A Minor 19:12
Whipping Post 18:40
Mountain Jam 31:05

That's what I'm talking about! Come and get 'em at hittinthenote.com!

I'm gonna sit down and listen to both CDs with the headphones on this evening and go back in time to 1973. From what I have heard so far, Chuck is absolutely incredible on this one!

It’s always been a tradition of mine, from age 15 to 50, to treat a new Allman Brothers Band release as an “event.” I usually go out and buy the record the first day it is available, bring it home, clear the decks and sit down on my sofa to listen to it from start to finish, uninterrupted. Tonight was no exception, however, instead of going to the store to get it, a truck delivered a load of the new Allman Brothers Band Archive CDs, Nassau Coliseum 5/1/73, to where I work! Who woulda thunk it 32 years ago, back in 1973!

In 1973 I was senior at Chamblee High School in Atlanta, GA, already a veteran of several Allman Brothers shows, having seen the original line-up, then the five man band. I would see them next at the Omni in Atlanta on June 2, 1973…about one month after their performance at Nassau Coliseum. I remember they were HOT that night. Richard Betts shared more of the spotlight with Gregg, new arrangements of old songs had been worked out, the keyboard player was phenomenal, the bass player fit right in and the new songs from the just released (?) Brothers and Sisters album represented a whole new evolution of the band. Even missing two of their founding members, they were STILL the best damn band in the land! They rocked Atlanta that night just like they rocked Uniondale, NY a month earlier.

This fourth Archival release really brought it all back to me…like only music can. This is one smoking show! I am so proud of Kirk West for his persistence in working to make sure that this music got shared with the fans. This new Archival release is a real glimpse into history. After you hear it, I’m sure you will feel the same way.

I’m blown away - what a night - the tradition continues!

Hey Stbhorn, we sent out a bunch of pre-orders yesterday, and we will send the rest today.

As always, we appreciate everybody's patience and hope you enjoy the music!

This looks great - I'd love to hear it.

Only trouble is, I've got to go through the rigmarole of trying to order from the HTN website again - I appreciate the security measures in place, but it is a NIGHTMARE trying to get my address to exactly match that on my c.c. account (I don't keep the statements, and can never remember the precise format).

Ah well, here goes...

If you want to PM me with you order info or e-mail me, you are welcome to. Or you can send a money order over, in US dollars.

Sorry about the web problems - it does have to be an exact match of the cc billing address to help ujs filter out the fraud. If you think you can tell where the address problem is, please let me know and we will try to make it better!

How's the quality? Sound quality, that is?

The last live ABB show I bought was the ATL Pop Festival and it didn't sound too good IMHO.

From what I was hearing yesterday, this seems to be the best sounding Archive yet.

However, the Atlanta Pop show was recorded on multi-track, and most people seem to think that's the best sounding live recording of the Brothers from that era, besides Fillmore East. If you're not happy with that, I'd hesitate to recommend anything else.

Yesterday, in the late afternoon, we received a truckload of the Nassau Coliseum Archival CDs. After working through the night we have filled and shipped every single pre-order we have received for this product! We are also completely caught up on shipping everything but the 2005 IL CDs (which should come in early 2006).

All of us at Hittin' the Note thank you for your great taste in music and sincerely hope that you get these orders by the weekend. Enjoy and play it LOUD!!!

JNB

Hey Joe, was the line-up of the band the same at the 12/18/75 show in Macon?

I'll be ordering the 73 show soon. Sounds great!

This is from the website. I was hoping to see Blue Sky listed among the songs. Oh well. Sigh. Anyway, Ramblin' Man is listed there!



Allman Brothers Band
Nassau Coliseum
Uniondale, NY 5/1/73


IN STOCK NOW !

Our latest archival feature, Nassau Coliseum 5/1/73, captures a phenomenal performance by the version of the Allman Brothers Band that recorded the classic album Brothers and Sisters. Rebounding from the tragic losses of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, the ABB was once again hittin’ the note in the spring of 1973, and Nassau Coliseum 5/1/73 captures this important segment of Allman Brothers history. This two-CD release harkens back to the time when the ABB was commonly referred to as the "best damn band in the land," and is loaded throughout with incendiary performances. Play it often, and play it loud.

DISC ONE

Wasted Words 4:58
Done Somebody Wrong 3:52
Statesboro Blues 4:15
One Way Out 7:42
Stormy Monday 8:46
Intros: Lamar & Chuck
Midnight Rider 3:13
Jessica 10:25
Come and Go Blues 4:58
Ramblin' Man 7:55
In Memory of Elizabeth Reed 15:06

DISC TWO

Trouble No More 4:02
You Don't Love Me 6:19
Les Brers in A Minor 19:12
Whipping Post 18:40
Mountain Jam 31:05

And another thing that always intrigues me about collecting the old shows. This era features Dickey only on guitar and so a song like Jessica will sound more like the actual album version. The guys here are the same people on the album. Later Chuck was not in the band, after the reunion, and Warren was in the band riffing away and driving me out of my mind, and not in a good way. I sometimes prefer the lesser approach to playing the songs. And sometimes solo Dickey on guitar shows the weaknesses of such an approach. But if Jessica soars on this archive show, it was all because of Dickey. And sure, the solo guitar approach to Whipping Post shows that it didn't work too well. Chuck was there playing keys to imitate what Duane might have played, and what he played would sound good, but they Dickey was there baring it all, showing the weakness of the solo, singular, solitary guitar rendition of Whipping Post. A little beauty, a little beast. A decent Whipping Post, and maybe not a spectacular rendition of that song. Anyway, it's great that a new show is now on sale.

Does this mean we will get one from 74, 75, and 76!!! Damn, I hope so.

Is it just me or does anyone else dig "Come and Go Blues" like I do? What a beautiful song.
