Taking a cue from Dr. Seuss's "If I Ran the Zoo:" if you could choose the next ABB archive release, what would it be? Aside from 6/26/71, of course, which either doesn't exist or is locked away in a giant storage locker under the Pentagon, next to the Ark.

9-16-71

I would definitely stick with the original line-up for a while longer.

No reason not to.

Two of the pieces of memorabilia that I have are a backstage pass and a ticket to the 6-26-71 Holy Grail show. If only they could talk - or should I say - play!

I used to have a trashy copy of 2/28/03, two weeks before Fillmore East at The U of Missouri. The sound quality was horrific, but it had a version of Elizabeth Reed that would be worth hearing if there was a better copy out there somewhere. I would also love to hear a spiffy version of the 2/11/70 jam with Peter Green, the Allmans, and the Dead. Once again, I have heard it, and while the sound quality wasn't the best, the music was VERY strong. One of the old free shows at Piedmont Park would be cool too, if only for the historic value. I am very psyched to hear rumors of the Atlanta Pop Festival being slated for release in the near future!

I am hoping that they will eventually get to the 90's as well, there is a lot of great music waiting for release. I nominate my personal favorite Dickey/Warren show, 9/7/92. Ridiculous version of Nobody Knows, best acoustic set I've heard, the band could do no wrong on that day! The show was rained out and had to be moved back a few days, and I have always felt that the band jammed extra hard to make it up to the fans.

the aural signature from 6-26-71 must exist somewhere in space...instead of the proposed $500 million latorral attack ship rumsfeld wants...i'd finace the technology to "capture" that aural signature...

"make it so!"

Glad to hear they are going to be releasing stuff from the entire history of the band. Seems like most of my Chuck-era shows could sound better, so I hope maybe they release one of those within the next one or two. And I would agree that hearing some 1989 thru the early 90s show(s) that aren't in the trading circles would be good. Finally, hear's to hoping we get more than one a year. Otherwise it could take a while to get into the more recent shows.

The Glen 7/28/73 including the Jam with the Dead & the Band. A Historical event!!

Anything with Duane that has decent sound quality.

Some of the 5 man stuff from 72 as well..

Give me the 3/20/71 3 CD show from the Warehouse... Or, how about the 12/31/70 show, also from the Warehouse.

I really think the band should focus on the original lineup for the next 3-4 releases. I don't expect much Chuck-era stuff, since that was so Dickey-dominated. As for the post-1990 stuff, I don't think it's necessary now. We have the First and Second set, we have the Great Woods video and we'll have a DVD/album from the Beacon soon...

I say focus on the original 6.

I would say the next release should be another Duane show...then move on to a couple 5 man shows, a couple Chuck/Lamar shows, back to Duane for another '71 release, maybe a mid 70's show, then on to 89 -92 for a couple of releases, then back to 1970....that would be about 10 releases right there....

Not going to be many more original era releases, if any. At least that is my understanding.

I have to agree with Bingylandmusic, gotta be the Watkins Glen show from '73. The copy I have of this show is a C+ at best soundwise, but the playing is awesome. I have the Band's release of Live at Wakins Glen, which interestingly enough came out only a few years ago and it sounds great so there must have been an "official" taper there.

I'm surprised a box set of the ABB/Band/Dead was never released as with Woodstock the original. Anyway, I'm sure there are lots of choices, maybe the band wants to release something from each era first. Lets hope this picks up some steam, if the Dead do it with Dick's Picks, I'm sure the ABB can get this rolling.

A Watkins Glen boxed set would RULE! Man, you shouldn't have said that! Now I'm all excited!

If I remember right there was a big controversy
whether that BAND cd was actually taped from the Glen.

Did this ever get resolved? Anybody?

Any particular reason why? Also, is there any pre-Allmans live stuff floating around out there?

I was there. I believe the capitol release to be the Glen. There are many comments on the stage from the BAND THAT CAN ONLY BE FROM THE GLEN.... I.e. reference to chutists, and the big ass Canadian flag that was there. It was a short set interrupted by the weather (delay after 4 songs of an hour maybe). Not one of the band bests moments but Robertsonís playing was never better on the short set they did play.

Ps- yeah. I think the 16 tracks were there.. reason for the Band playing a somewhat obscure set(nonething they played had been on a live album before) , but remember- Europe 72. Rock of Ages, Fillmore & EAP all with live stuff were solid albums out at the time that all had good chart longevity.

Some of my favorite playing was from the sounchecks the day prior, The Band played two, the brothers came out and did OWO LR & RM (new at the time) and the Dead played for a while. B Grahamís book explains Bill saying to the Band who had requested the soundcheck (first time playing live in yr. and a half) Bill turned to the 100,000 already there and said,Ē what the **** do you want me to do ask them to move?"

The reason why is the good stuff is traded freely (8.26.71 and 6.27.71 for examples) and the well is dry. I would buy the Fillmore show where they had the horns if that was available. I would buy damn near anything with Duane on it...

Just a couple of Pre Allman things that I am aware of. 31st of Feb and an Allman Joy show or two...

I like the 2/28/71 call... that was the first ABB show I ever had, and I gleefully wore the tape out. The Liz and Dreams are both breathtaking, although that was usually the case.

Any of the pre-ABB stuff would be neat; Hour Glass, Allman Joys, 31st. Wonder if they own the rights to release something like that.

As far as CD releases, I'd like to see (and hear) a really good 5 man era show be released. Dickey and Berry really tore it up in '72.

But, if I ran the archives, I'd release an ABB DVD in a similar vein to the Grateful Dead "View From the Vault" series. Any and all video footage of Duane should be released. I know there has to be more from the 9/23/70 show. I also find it hard to believe that some shows were videotaped in '70 but not in '71, when the band was starting to get famous. Any '72-'76 video footage would be cool, too.

There are a few other videotapes of shows (or bits of shows, anyway - not sure if anything is complete).
