One Way Out is not on LAFE ... but apart from that I have to agree with your choice ... One Way Out on EAP hooked me ...

The first 8 bars of "Don't Want You No More" from the first album when I heard it in 1970.

"One Way Out"!

To this day, I still believe it's THE BEST R 'n' R slide ever recorded.

First exposure was "Rogues" really liked "Can't Take It With You" at the time. Didn't even know whether it was Gregg or Dickey doing the vocals

"Got It" a short time later when WBCN played LAFE one night. Stayed up late, couldn't believe it was the same band. Entire album blew me away, but I recall being esp. into "Liz Reed."

"Statesboro Blues"

Which led to my first guitar and then to my discovery of Elmore James, Blind Willie McTell, Hound Dog Taylor, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Slim Harpo, Lightnin' Hopkins, Tampa Red, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson and so on....

Thanks Duane.

My first exposure to the ABB was LAFE. A buddy of mine & I, when we were sophomores in HS, would ditch last period history class ...we'd head to his house, "twist one up", before his parents got home, and put on his older brother's copy of LAFE...and just play it over & over all the way through, while we played pool or darts (his house was kind of an in-home "pub"! )...when the weather was good, we'd put the speakers in the window sills and go swimming in their swimming pool while the albums played..very loudly. One day his brother came home with Eat A Peach...then we'd play both albums all the way through...remember the original LPs had side 1 backed by side 4 & side 2 backed by side 3? He had a changer turntable, so we could play 'em, then just flip the stacks & keep going. This was back when Capricorn still had the purple label....before they went to the beige ones when Brothers & Sisters came out.

I don't remember what song actually "hooked" me, but considering which songs, still to this day, have a "reach into my soul & touch me" thing about them, most likely "Whippin' Post" & "Liz Reed".

True story...I once performed oral sex on my then girlfriend to the LAFE version.
She's now my wife of 31 years.

I guess you could say it was the song that hooked her!

The first time I saw the Brothers at Jones Beach I knew about 4 or 5 of their radio hits like 'Blue Sky' and 'Ramblin Man' and thought they were a country band. By the middle of the opening salvo of 'DWYNM' into 'NMCTB' I was pretty much hooked and knew that they were not a country band.

Gotta be "Whippin' Post", that bass intro just sounded
so dark and dangerous, and the lyrics evoke great imagery
in my mind to this day.

Agree. Unfortunately I can still remember hearing that song on the radio the night Duane died. The announcer said that was in memory of Duane Allman. In a haze I was like "what the F**k"
