on stage with the ABB? Anyone find that strange? He was a very good picker and would play with at least one other artist....D&B. Was the early ABB against the idea?

Cheers

You know Carlos, I have wondered the same thing on occasion or two and this is one possible answer; Talent, inspired effort, and their dedication to the music led to the realized potential that was Live at Fillmore East. And this success allowed them the freedom to begin showing other capabilities, such as their expertise with acoustic instruments. When I listen to Little Martha I don't think of it as Duane's only acoustic work, Rather, I think of it as the first of many like it to come.

I think you already heard but you are able to hear Duane played "Little Martha" at backstage of ABB on Capt.Skipper remastered Gatlinburg Tapes.
It is quite immpressive and beautiful play. I can't stop my tears in my eyes whenever I hear it.
I think this mean he has taken not only electric but also acoustic guitar with his tour and he supposed to play it if there was a chance. Don't you think so?

Hi Masahiko

The Gatlinburg was actually while on vacation. I don't recall it was actually backstage, unless Skip has a new "tape." Anyone know?

Cheers

John Hammond, Jr. will tell you that Duane was perfectly delighted to sit up all night and play scary good box guitar and Dobro.

He should still be here. He would have invented 'unplugged'. I'm sure there would have been records cut. Good ones. And I suspect Dickey would be the featured co-conspirator. Everything would be different.

I love Howard D. Allman. Our buddy.

Along these lines, Duane plays a solo acoustic version of "Angie" on a radio show with the Grateful Dead. I have a really bad copy. I also can't find that listed anywhere. You can hear the beginning of it at the end of th WABC interview on the soundclips page of this site.
I'd appreciate any information on this.'

"Little Martha" is not on the copy I have of the Gatlinburg tapes, nor is it listed in the setlist on etree. Am I missing something?

Yes I know that original Gatlinburg Tapes was recorded while on their vacation, also original source doesn't include backstage play of "Little Martha".
There are 2 CD sets of Gatlinburg tapes which added two bonus tracks. Capt.Skipper remastered. One being an alternate version of Loan Me A Dime, done by Boz Scaggs with Duane, the other is the only known version of Little Martha, other than EAP with Duane playing guitar. It's from backstage in Birmingham, AL on 6.16.'71
I've got this copy from Clay(claypelland) and shared with many Japanese friends.
About Little Martha, it's really cool and incredible, worth listening.

About "Angie" with GD, I didn't hear it but I think one of my friend in Japan have the source of the radio show. ( 11/21/70 WBCN-FM Studios : Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Greg Allman; isn't it this show? )

Also, it seems Kitaro is still active and he released new album "SACRED JOURNEY OF KU-KAI VOLUM 2." at this Feb.

Just like Masahiko said, the Little Martha was recorded by Jerry Groom, back stage on 6/16/71 in Birmingham, and was transcribed by Kirk West.

BTW, Jerry was the same guy that recorded the Gatlinburg tapes that Kirk also
transcribed.

Little Martha was just the beginning....and what a start!!

Yes. I have a very bad copy of this. If anyone knows a source of a clean copy (Masahiko,Clay,PeachNutt,Rowland?) I'd be grateful. I've posted around a bit, looked at some lists, and gotten nothing substantial.

homeboy,

I don't think a "clean" copy exists.

Possibly, but if you listen to the end of the Duane WABC interview on the Sound Clips page on this site, you can hear the beginning of this show, much cleaner than I have. Rowland posted that and I asked him about it. He said he'd check into it, but I haven't heard back since.

You're right spikedog, he does play the acoustic rhythm on Blue Sky. Listening closely to Duane's acoustic work on that song will give you great insight to another aspect of his music that made him so incredible. His acoustic rhythm drives the song, with a totally full sound that perfectly complements the rhythm section, vocals, and the lead guitars, yet is never obtrusive or in the way. It is another fine example of Duane Allman's genius.

I repeat my plea for anyone that has a copy of 11/21/70 WBCN Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir with Duane Allman playing solo acoustic guitar to post here or pm me. Duane's performance is very brief, but unique.
Thanks
