This is credited to the five man version of the band. There are definitely two guitars on You Don't Love Me. Is that Gregg playing guitar? Was there an uncredited guest? I'm listening on my iPod and the CD is at home. I looked on HTW at the archival CD info and it doesn't mention a guest.

When the release came out this subject was discussed at length - the concensus was that it was Elvin Bishop. Others suggested it might be Les Dudek...

My guess is that the second guitarist would be Jimmy Nalls. At that time the ABB was touring quite a bit with Alex Taylor and Friends (which included not only Jimmy Nalls, but also Chuck Leavell). As a matter of fact I remember seeing the 5-man version of the ABB on 2/5/1972 (just 6 days before the Macon show) at Duke University and Alex Taylor and Friends were the opening band. Btw I also saw the 5-man version of the ABB, with Alex Tayor and Friends opening on June 18, 1972 in Fayetteville, NC.

There were two shows that night. The archive release is of the second show. I was 16 yrs old and attended the first show that night. As I recall, only Dicky handled guitar duties during the early show. However, i did some Orange Sunshine before the show, so I could be mistaken! I remember Jaimoe smoking a cigar while he played, and watching the smoke swirl around him. The highlight was Berry singing Hootchie Coochie man. There were very few in attendance at the early show, but a lot of folks were outside waiting to enter for the late show.

lonoman,

I don't remember Alex Taylor playing guitar at either show that I saw, he was basically out front singing. The guitar work in his band was being done Jimmy Nalls (who btw was one of the founding members of Sea Level).

Gregg mentions bringing Alex Taylor to sing at the beginning of the disc so maybe it's Jimmy Nalls from his band.
