I'm listening to this jam from my first Allman Brothers show. Virigina Beach of last summer. I'm listening to it for a countless time. I love it. It goes by much too fast as i find myself moving to this just great tune. I wish they played it more often. Oteil's voice is great. I never realized just how much I love it but of the shows i have from these days, its probably my favorite 2 songs off any. Its just...happy, and some great playing. Al Schnier (spelling?) sat in with them and its great. It doesn't get much talk around here and for some reason i felt like making a topic out of it...Anyone else enjoy these tunes?

Drew, I think it's Schnier, but I'm not positive. The other night at Jones Beach during Warren's solo on Liz Reed, he sort of stopped playing for a second and started playing the chords to 'Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?' intro and I thought that we were in for a special treat, but I guess not. It was still cool though.

It was a great combo.. but I'm glad they don't do it as much.

It's like they're letting WDLGTBSS be it's own song, instead of just always transitioning into Franklin's Tower.

If you love Franklins Tower, you'll love Oteil singing on Anyday.

Hmm, really? I know I caught Warren playing a bit of Hottentot at the very beginning of his solo in liz reed. Guess I'll need the IL to hear it again.

Sure was!! Was that the first time they did Franklin's Tower? It was the first time I heard the Mountain Jam sandwich and Key to the Highway- for me a night to remember.

Not sure if it was the first time, but 3.19.04 at the Beacon was the best Love so Sad>Franklin's, imo
Oteil singing and Baracco on the keys was electric. The transition and the crowd's
electricity make the tune. Even the woman you can commentate hear near the taper's
mikes adds to the vibe - at least for me.
Prolly listened to it 70 times.
pm me if you need a copy.

I agree with this fully. Not to mention I also think this is one of Warren's best solo's ever. Everything about that solo is as close to perfection as I think you can get.

This is my favorite song(s) to listen to.
Looking at the database, the first time the ABB played it was 8/25/96 in Reno.
They didn't play it again until 7/21/00 in Pittsburgh. They played it a few times, including 8/3/01 in Raleigh.
They stopped for a few years after that, and didn't play it again until 3/19/04 at the Beacon. The most recent playing was 3?23/06 at the Beacon.
I could listen to this 24/7 for the rest of my life.

Yeah, but I have them all together on my Ipod so it just keeps the jam going. Thanks!

Thanks...I didn't notice they played a show in Baltimore (where i live) last night. I guess it was a private show, but i'm glad to see it back...maybe they'll pull it out again sunday (i'm crossing my fingers)


But yeah, they didn't begin with WDLGTBSS...i don't have any ideas...if anything i'd think they would play the Dominos tune for Derek's sake.

I've heard Mike sing Anyday quite a few times now (which i ADORE), but i think it would be cool to hear oteil give it a shot.

So...I guess I'd have to say I got pretty lucky, they pulled this out tonight, what a treat! Right after Midnight Rider like VA Beach last year...I had that little feeling inside hoping they would, just follow the same order because that seems reasonable and BAM it did.

"Why does Love got to be so Sad" is about EC and his love affair with his best friend's wife......nuff said.......get out of that groove

Haha...well...there is a reason it is my FAVORITE album of all time...

I find the lyrics to Have You Ever Loved a Woman remarkably ironic because he didn't write them but tearing down George's house is EXACTLY what he wanted to do...well maybe not quite, but its a little crazy...

but you're right and that's remarkably depressing...then again look at his life those couple of years...

Thank you for saying "I'm Right" (men and women think differently)"Look at his life those couple of years".......what does that mean??? I am so tired of "Clapton Excuses". Look at his life.....look at your life....look at my life!!! He "stole" his best friends wife, and excuses are "made up" in his defense. I am in The Beatles "camp"......nice to meet you. Brian Epstein invited EC and other musicians over to his apt. to hear the first tape of.................oh, nevermind! Why should I bother to explain this. EC was and IS wrong. And he'd be a great guitarist if he'd learn how to play *wink* By the way...to back up my statements...any Grammy he won was not written by him and "Tears in Heaven" was co-written by Will Jennings. I have sat down with known musicians and discussed Mr. EC. You leave his concerts shaking your head blown away, saying "What a Concert". (but think of who was on the stage with him, and the cover songs etc...) To answer the question in general: "Why does love got to be so sad"....my answer is: We wouldn't know it was love, until we felt pain.

In reference to Clapton...I will defend his playing (not always his music) forever, but when it comes to his love for patti boyd...come on, get over yourself. I agree with you there. I do think, however, that his "unrequitted love" inspired the greatest album of all time (with a little help from Duane). I think he is a great guitar player. I think he should of let his best friend and his wife be. And I don't think he's the greatest song writer. He puts on a great live show because he is one hell of a guitar player and because of the people around him. I'd rather not get in an argument over his career, but i do agree that Clapton had a little inflated view of himself with his whole love life bit.
and...
i love your line.

I saw the Brothers at Hartford last summer. It was a great show and the Why Does Love Have To Be So Sad? and Franklin's Tower was one of the highlights. I loved the solo by Al Schnier on Franklin's.

Hey CW, nice meeting you last night. As soon as the Brothers broke into WDLGTBSS, I thought of you & this thread.

Funny aside, the guy next to me starts nudging me & sayin', "Hey dude, wasn't this done by some group from the '70's?" "Who were they?". Had to laugh & I said, "It was done by some group called 'Derek & the Dominos'. Maybe you heard of them?" Then he gets all excited when they break into 'Franklin Towers' & jumps up & down & says, "Oh man, is that a 'Dead' Song." Cracked me up.
