Back in the early 1990's, my dad got a hold of a limited edition (i think only like 15,000 or 1,500 copies) Acoustic set CD.

I don't remember the name, but I know it was Warren, Dickey, Greg, and I think Allen Woody on bass.

The set list was a collaboration of songs all acoustic including Elizabeth Reed, Come on into my kitchen, Seven Turns, Melissa and some others.

Anyways, a long time ago (before I started backing up my CD's on a PC) the CD got sat on or stepped on, and broke the CD.

For years I have been thinkin about how much I liked that disc. Does anyone know what disc this is? Or better yet how I might be able to get a hold of one?

Thanks!

The Brothers should put that on iTunes or offer it again through hittin the note. I would probably be willing to pay anything they'd sell it for... Hell, I'll even donate $50 to International Rett Syndrome Association...whatever it takes.

If there is no way to purchase it... does anyone know of anybody that got some legal recordings from that era with a similar setlist...preferably acoustic?

I'll BnP ya or trade somethin I got. I don't have much though. I haven't traded in a long long time.

My recollection is that there was a second printing of the "IRSA" disc, which later sold out. It would be great if arrangements could be made for a third printing with proceeds going to IRSA again.

In any case, I commend the band and all involved for supporting the IRSA cause.

This cd is wonderful. I too would like to get another copy because mine got a nasty scratch and 'Come On in My Kitchen' is trashed. The acoustic version of Liz Reed from this performance can also be found on "An evening with....2nd Set" if I'm not mistaken. I just looked on the original sleeve of the acoustic cd and the contact info is as follows:

IRSA
9121 Piscataway Rd.
Clinton, MD 20735
(301) 856-3334

Maybe there's an outside chance they've got a few extras from other pressings laying around? Even if not, we can call them up or find a website, and tell them that another pressing would probably generate alot of interest. I'm sure newer fans who never saw the Warren and Woody ABB might not even be aware of this kick ass acoustic show.

'92? Was it THAT long ago?

I bought three of those acoustic sets when they came out. Gave away two as gifts and still enjoy the one I kept for myself. Several of the songs from the charity disc ended up on the "First Set," "Second Set" cheesy live albums that Epic put out after the ABB moved on.

This reminds me of another rare promo CD from that era but I'll start a thread on that one.

The disc is called "Sweet Mellisa" and I happened to find it in Boston. It is Great!

I'm pretty sure they didn't release that legally.

I think that's incorrect, the disc was shipped in a cardboard sleeve with no "title" on it at all.
I also bought 3 at the time, $20ea , gave one to a friend and kept the other 2 for myself.

After the talk about it last night, I grabbed it from my rack this morning and have been listening to it all morning in my shop.

The Sweet Melissa version of this show is a import bootleg copy. I think it is missing Midnight Blues and has a couple of solo Gregg tracks tacked on at the end.

I have a bootleg called The Toni Brothers Band that has the acoustic show along with cuts from the Brothers of the Road video at the end.

Yeah, I have Sweet Melissa, never got the legit one, but it sounds damn fine. It omits Midnight Blues and has another performance of come on in my kitchen, plus two Gregg Allman performances of Come & Go Blues (which ended up on One More Try, also out of print) and Melissa from what I suspect is early 80s since the arrangements mirror the performance on the Brothers of the Road concert films.

As great as that performance is, I think their MTV Unplugged concert was even better. The percussion made for an even richer sound, Gregg and Dickey were in and that is probably my favorite performance of Midnight Rider. There was a bootleg of that floating around, but I haven't seen it in ages. It had another disc disc with Seven Turns session outtakes, really wish I had picked it up but never had the dough for it.

And did someone call the Evening With albums "cheesy"?

I also have one of the originals, and it is sweet!

I think it would be a great idea for another pressing, with the proceeds to go to the same organization. They'd sell lots of copies, I'm sure.

I have that set as Sweet Melissa as well. It has another version of Come Into My Kitchen, and two of Greggs solo songs at the end (Come and Go Blues and Melissa) I found it in a record fair in Belfast

Great set, though

Woah - I've got five takers on my offer for three - so I have to cut it off now, I'm afraid.

Hopefully those that get it will spread it around a bit more.

Thanks for playing.

Let's see, as far as No1's question goes . . . let's see if I can recall them from memory . . .

Vol. 1 was a one-discer of my favorite Derek and Jimmy songs,
Vol. 2 was a one-discer of my favorite Warren Tunes
Vol. 3 was my favorite tracks from a three-night Warfield run by Phil and Friends, Warren and Jimmy Line-up . . . I forget the year, '03 or '04, maybe.
Vol. 4 was "A Pair of Ladies," two discs of my favorite Jessicas and Liz Reeds.

Volume 6 is going to be effing incredible - I'm already in the planning stages, and it's still about a year off (watch for my 10,000 post).

Strange this topic came up........I have that import Sweet Melissa deal as well. I really enjoy it, especially the Goin' Down the Road feelin' Bad & Come in My Kitchen. But just the other day I discovered a few of the tracks including the above were no longer playing properly Oh, well maybe I'll stumble across it in another used record store or something.

Must be the dreaded "CD Rot".

Wayne, I thought "The Toni Brothers Show" boot were the Unplugged outtakes. I have that one too-somewhere....

I have the ABB's Unplugged Promo CD from Sony that also had the Indigo Girls on it-half and half. Talk about strange bedfellows...

I just went searching for my IRSA CD and here's what the back of it says:

This limited edition CD is a fund raising effort by the Allman Brothers Band to assist the research efforts of the International Rett Syndrome Association. Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder which only occurs in girls who appear to have early normal development.

If I remember correctly, someone within the ABB organization or a friend of the band has a daughter who has this disease, so the ABB stepped up to assist with fund raising.

My sleeve is autographed by Allen Woody, Warren and Jaimoe, making it one of my favorite ABB keepsakes.

That reminds me, I need to replace my Pair of Ladies.

Both discs now have skips.

I blame Benjamin.
