So I have Eat A Peach on and Les Brers in A Minor comes on and I just love the bass line that starts the song out. Probably my favorite bass part that Berry recorded

Yes indeed! That's a B.O. signature bass line if there ever was one!

A fine bass line indeed, but I think the opening of "Whipping Post" may trump that.

His bass intro on HKMan, then his vocal -- BO

Both of these are great but the first time I heard BO pounding out that opening to WP... whew!!!

His solo on the EAP cut of "Mountain Jam" gets me every time.

Yeah I love that one, but I think I slightly prefer the Ludlow Garage solo even more.

The ABB was Duane's band but Berry made it go.

Early on, they all made a go of it -- even the roadies in a way too -- but you're quite right indeed, Duane & Berry were the cornerstones

Love all Berry's work, but the solo coming out of MJ on EAP is a fav- glad to see I'm not the only one.

Agree with you all.....however, the lines he's playing on BLUE SKY during both DA & DB's solo's are incredible. You sorta have to pay attention but he's all over the fretboard...."COUNTERPOINT"!!!!

IIRC, Randy wrote in Skydog that Duane considered the roadies full members of the band, and I'm pretty sure they got paid before the musicians. So the Allman Brothers Band of his era had 11 members.

Here is an excerpt about the roadies from Johnny's book about the day Duane died:

"After we found out he was gone, we all went over to the big house with everybody. I think some of the Brothers might have been at the house, I don't remember. I really don't remember. I know a lot of the road guys were there. I remember Red Dog and Tuffy and I think Twiggs and Joe Dan Petty were there too. I get to thinking about it sometimes and I see all these faces yet I can't tell you for sure who was there. I know it was all 'family'. Kim Payne was there and I remember him being totally distraught.

All the road crew was really dedicated to the band and they were good hard working folks. When they got on the road they had a good time, but they did their job. They took care of that first. There was a strong belief in that band, a spiritual awareness of how important their music was. The road crew made sure everything was right. I couldn't imagine a better or more dedicated group of people. They took care of the band. It was before the days of professional roadies. They were friends who hung out with the band and learned the job from the ground up when there wasn't any money and when it started taking off, the band shared the perks of their success with them. "

It's been a long time but I seem to recall a review of EAP when it came out, and it described the "Les Brers" bass line as being something so logical and rooted that it seemed like something you'd already heard, even though it was completely original.

I finally decided on a title a few months ago.....'A Never Ending Groove - Johnny Sandlin's Musical Odyssey'.
