Which ABB shows do you feel are the very best that the abb ever played. Obvious ones include - 9/16/71, 9/19/71, 3/20/98, and 9/25/04. I also feel that 2/11/72 and 5/1/73, the archival releases are exceptional. 12/31/73 as well.

Trust me, there are many!

And "best" is too subjective, though it's hard to disagree with 9/16 or 9/19/71.

Best, in this case, probably equals most heard/widely traded.

A personal favorite of mine is Raleigh 2003. It showcases everything that is great about the current lineup.

7-1-94 from Walnut Creek in Raleigh was a great one, too. Part of it was used for An Evening with the ABB First Set.

The best show I ever saw-and that includes the 9-25-04 Fox show-was the 3-18-06 show from the Beacon. Abbsolutely friggin' incredible. Best WP I ever saw.

8.16.94 was great as was 8.16.92 (cool foggy and misty night) with a kick ass "Pony Boy" and, quite possibly, the trippiest and best "Dreams" ever played. Both shows at the Garden State Arts Center.

My favorites are largely based on what's available, and the quality of the recording available. My favorite Duane shows have been mentioned, and a few others, but how about 9/19/98, which I believe was aired as a cable pay-per-view special and available for trade as a SBD recording.

I can't leave out the Derek and Jimmy line-up. Favorites there would include the first three days - 6/16, 17 and 18 (very experimental) and those toward the end of the run, centering around 9/23/2000 (flat out balls-to-the-wall jamming).

The "Beach to Peach" shows double billing with the PLQ get a lot of kudos - I think those were the first week of August, 2001. They're a good representation of the early incarnation of the current line-up.

Of course, IMO, if you want to hear the best the current line-up has to offer, you've got to check out the three-day run at the Fox theater in Atlanta from '04.

For me it has to be 6/27/71...the last night at the Filmore East. I would have loved to hear the previous night. But that night was broadcast over WNEW in NY. That was the night I was introduced to the Allman Brothers and I guess things haven't been the same since. I hear that concert in my head every day. Guess I must be OCD. lol

As far as the Derek/Warren era, I'd go with 3/21/05; Beacon Theatre; night before the Big House benefit show. Chuck L was there to work his magic, setlist was amazing (last Blue Sky performed?), and Johnny Neel was on hand too for a couple tunes.

I'm judging this from tape...

As far as best show of all time, I think it would probably be one of the ones from Fall 1971 when they had started to open up the setlist and do longer shows....Dickey had brought Blue Sky to the table among others. 9/16/71 could be the one.

9.25.04 - electric atmosphere

8.16.94 - Great playing from Dickey

This is a GREAT, great thread for a guy like me -- longtime fan, newbie to tape-trading and whatnot. I'm a big Little Milton fan, too, so tracking down 3/19/05 just made the to-do list.

I thought of that one too, Vic....best version of Ramblin' Man EVER. I was so happy when Capt. Skipper sent me a copy of this and I finally heard the unedited verison of RM restoring the extra minutes that were edited out of the version on Wipe THe Windows.

Fantastic show.

About the 9~26-73 show^...

From 11-23-07 ...>>> I just finished listening to the encore from this show ( Blue Sky, Trouble no More>>Whipping Post) and all I can say is WOW! What a Performance. My Copy of this show was taken right off of KSAN the night of the performance... The tape runs all the way through the return to the studio and then some. After the final notes of W.P. the crowd goes nuts and continues to stomp their feet and clap, Finally Bill Graham emerges to say the Band thanks you... and... Ciao... Greensleves starts to play and Tom Donahue (KSAN D.J. Host of the show) starts to thank Tom Fly, Tom Scott and Johhny Sandlin as Johnny walks by the Broadcast Booth. The following is the transcript of the short interview between Tom and Johnny. I didn't know if this was on the traded version of the show... so here goes:

T.D./ John...Why don't you come over here for a minute.
You're an ex Bass player aren't ya?
J.S./ah...I used to play Bass and drums some ...yeah
T.D./ Didn't you play in...were you in Hourglass?
J.S./ Yeah, I played drums for the Hourglass
T.D./ Yeah right, so you've been around the Allmans for a long time
J.S./ Yeah, I've known Gregg and Duane for a good while, close friends
T.D./ Wouldn't you say that tonight was one of the best performances you've heard out of them?
J.S./ Uh.. I thought it was very good...ah....
Donahue interjects:
T.D./ A lot of intensity
J.S./Ahh, The power was there... and they were all playing very well
T.D./ So you're gonna go in and start workin' on this tape that's been cut tonight...tomorrow night?
J.S./ We're gonna mix it down in quad
T.D./ uh huh
J.S./ Seems like live performances type things come out, um... better in quad than the other things... they're more real
T.D./ We thank you for helpin' us and talking to us
J.S./ Thank You
