I was just wondering if anybody has "blue sky" with Duane playing. I know they played it live several times before Duane left us????

The Stony Brook Archive Release is bt far the best live recording of Blue Sky with Duane. A must for any ABB fan. I have a few others that are tradeable if you want but you should get the Stony Brook Show.

That is far and away the greatest recording of Blue Sky I have ever heard.

Even without Blue Sky Stoneybrook would be worth owning....so since it is there with Duane I'm sure you'll want to add it to your collection. It's definitely a great show, and supporting the Archive release system only benefits us in the long run because more great releases will follow.

I agree, Duanes's solo is powerful.

Just to make it even easier for you, here is the link to the liner notes for this CD as well as a link to buy the CD:

In addition to the two lead guitars, how about Berry becoming a third lead with his bass! Amazing playing!

DEFINITELY pick up Stonybrook 9/19 -- les brers in full flight. Thank you Kid Glove/Hittin' the Note folks for making this available -- what a treasure.

With all this talk about this show, I might just have to order it.

I gotta chime in on the recommendation to buy the Stony Brook show! Along with what's been said above about Blue Sky, Dickey does a great job on vocals and guitar lead also.

I think this is my favorite archive release so far. I like it a bit better than Atlanta Pop and better than American U. \I haven't gotten any post Duane releases yet though I think I may get the new Nassau Coliseum one to hear what an early Leavell Mountain Jam sounds like.

I'm a big Stonybrook fan myself, but I have to say the new 5/1/73 gives it a run for its money! "Wipe The Windows" is rendered totally obsolete by this recording, in my opinion. I hadn't heard that many live shows from this lineup, so I was set up perfectly to be blown away by this show, and I was. Chuck and Lamar are both excellent, the "new guys" at the time really show that they are worthy of the Allman Brothers name.

Still, that "Blue Sky" with Duane is arguably THE choice nugget of the Archive series to date.

got to chip in with a stoney brook recommendation. it is awesome and should be in any ABB fans collection. the "dreams" might be the best ever. in memory of elizabeth reed is also awesome on it. the blue sky is great. you don't love me is also great. i'd highly, highly recommend purchasing it.

Cool comments by Rob and Doug about the new archive release -- have long had 12/31/73 and 11/25/75, but no Mtn. Jam by this band -- have ALWAYS wanted to hear what Lamar might've done with the bass solo.
The comments about 5/1/73 rendering WTWCTODG obsolete, and Chuck's trippy playing, and the general enthusiasm about this release are wonderful & leading me to putting my buying shoes on.
Thank you HTN!!! You guys rock.

Maybe I'm in the minority on this, but the YDLM on the Stony Brook is lackluster in my opinion. Why you ask??? They had technical difficulties right at the moment Dickey was about to tear it up. Now, the band did recover nicely, but to say that it was a "good" rendition is a bit overstated. After that technical slip up they were never really able to reach the height that song typically allows. There have been much better before and since.

Peace
