finsky, it sure did... I wonder if the full band comes in at all, or if it just stays acoustic the whole time...

I also wonder if the band will play it full acoustic if (when?) they add the acoustic sets this year...

Was thinking the same thing. Does the band come in after the acoustic intro? Are they going to play it... with acoustic guitars? It was a litte studio twist I wasn't expecting.

I LOVE the separation I hear in the studio. Live recordings & shows has murky, muddy effects at times. On the clips, everything sounded GREAT.

Frank's gonna get be fired! Work productivity in my little piece of the office has just fallen to zero, since I'm spending all my time looping thru those 30 second samples....

I may be the only one, but I'm not going to listen to those 30 second spots...I want to go in fresh when it actually comes out. I've heard all the songs on here in one form or another, so the only thing left would be to hear them in this form...so it's kind of new...kind of exciting...heh...

I've already put in my leave request at work so I can take the day off and listen to it. Is it March 18th yet?

Sandman,

I actually tried, back in the Fall, to avoid listening to any 2001/02 shows, just so, when the record came out, I could hear 11 brand spankin' new ABB songs. Sometime around October, though, I got antsy and gave in! Now, of course, I've heard them all and some of the effect is lost...

Back in '94, when "Where It All Begins" came out, I was in my GLORY! I had 10 new ABB songs and I just listened to it for days straight. Just laid on my bed and listened to it over and over, learning the songs and listening for every nuance...

Now, I know all the songs in and out, so SOME of the effect is lost. Still, surprises like the acoustic rendition of "Old Before My Time" certainly help!

The rest of the band DOES come in on "Old Before My Time", however the acoustic remains playing through the rest of the song.

Poor Sandman.

Two weeks until the album- less than 10 days until the Beacon!

Yes - lots of good sounding stuff there. 'Coustic Old Before My Time being the most striking to me. Also love Derek's playing on Old Friend.

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to Old Friend. Not only have we not heard the ABB version yet, the idea of a Warren/Derek acoustic slide song - and it's JUST the two of them, from what I've heard - is very exciting. I'm not sure Derek's been recorded on acoustic guitar before.

Man, that was such a TEASE! 2 weeks from today I'll be at CD World here in Cherry Hill on my lunch hour. Actually I went there today to finally buy the Susan T. CD (listened twice...love it!) and I looked for the board with the upcoming releases on it. 3/18 had The Allman Brothers listed first. Of course, the list was in alphabetical order

Wow!
Those little 30 second clips sure sounded damn good to me!
Some things that jumped out at me are:
1) Greggs vocals way up in the mix - he sounds killer.
2) You can really hear Oteil as well, he sometimes gets overpowerwed slightly on live audience recordings. Very tatsty bass lines.
3) Greggs B-3 also very prominent, check out Desdemona which was the first clip I played, I LOVE that song!
4) The fact the songs are played very deliberately, meaning not rushed, so you can really get behind the groove to the songs, Sweeet! I hate when songs sound rushed, there is none of that here.
5) The acoustic stuff which is always welcome, Cool dobro/ steel guitar playing on Old Friend - Very Duane-like - can't wait to hear the whole tune.

Nine years since BWIAB! Sounds like it was worth the wait! We are Beacon Bound!!!

Peace
Eddie

The song Deltaraga on his second album...all acoustic...very cool!

EDIT: oh, and it's not the sitar either like on his first album...but other than that, I can't think of any other times...

Cool. Okay, so he hasn't been recorded on acoustic much, and certainly not with the Brothers. I just listened to the clips on a computer with GOOD sound (thanks, Emily). I'm definitely psyched even further.

Was it? Hmm... will have to check it out again, as it's been a while. Did like it though, & wish they would bust songs like that out at a show. An acoustic set with something like that would be great.

Derek recorded an electric version of Preachin Blues on Out of the Madness, but I don't think he has done an acoustic version. That would be cool!

Wow! This is my first listen. I definitely like what Iíve heard. For good or bad, without Dickie the band sounds entirely different (to me). The signature tone (Dickie) isn't there at all (again, not necessarily a bad thing). On my first listen, I am tempted to say that a couple of those songs have a neo-Beatle-esque quality. I know where Iím spending my allowance!
