The Allman Brothers Band Discography book looks interesting...but at $40 a pop, I'm curious as to whether it's worth the price.

Has anybody out there read it? And if so, would you recommend getting it??

Funny you ask, I just got mine this last week, A really great resource, a true factual data compilation of releases. Awesome collection of photos. Lots (tons) of color graphics, hence the high price, I assume. My petty critique: I would have liked a little more info on specific track info, but that is my fanaticism I think... I give the book a thumbs and big toes up.

I have to say, the coolest thing about it is that all pages are color photos, which is no doubt the reason it is so expensive. I've always collected books on my favourite artists and I'm particularly interested in discographies and books related directly to the music. My issue has always been the b&w photos. There has been some great Beatles books out that are very expensive, but have all full-color glossy pictures, I love it. - I'd say the ABB book is worth it just for that. But it also shows the side-projects and is basically just the facts about the release. A well-put-together collection...

Yes, get it. It is an awesome resource. The only possible downside is that you might get the "collecting bug" and spend all your hard earned dollars on ebay. And yes, I am speaking from experience.

As an aside, I've conversed with the author a few times and asked him about a second edition with updated info. He said it is doubtful, which is too bad. I've run across a few items that aren't in the book so I was hoping for an updated edition. Oh well.

Tina got me this for Christmas last year. I often turn to it for one piece of info or another. Or if I want to see a phallic belt buckle.

Dean put together a good book. And, as he lives up the road, I know that he was also a part of the group that ran Ludlow's Garage that had the Allman Brothers a bunch , (the live album from there) and many other great late 60's, early 70's acts. The owner at the time, Jim Tarbell, is now a city councilmen here in Cincinnati. I called him when Col. Bruce was in town a few months ago and they talked about the old days for a long time. Combine Ludlow Garage with King Records here in town at the same time and a lot of music history was made here back in the day.

OK, so is the info below correct?

And, does anyone have a lead for the two Hawkins, Lulu's "New Routes,", King Curtis' "Instant Groove", and Arthur Conley's "More Sweet Soul"....on cd? Yes, out of print, but still must exist somewhere in the world, even in some dank dungeon

And, finally, since Johnny Sandlin's wife "Big Ann"? made a obscure reference years ago, did Duane actually have a dedicated session on lp between the April 1968 work with the Hourglass, and, his appearance at the Pickett Sessions in late Nov 68? That is, there is a rumor of such work, and seemingly hinted at by Sandlin's own notes on the remaster Ton-Ton Macoute. I know he worked with King Curtis early, but quite simply, what was Duane Allman's first actual work as a session guitarists, credited or otherwise?

Carlos - I've been collecting ABB-related memorabilia fairly seriously pretty much since I picked up Dean's book. And in searching ebay for the past few years, I have never seen any of those releases you mentioned offered on CD. They are offered on LP quite frequently, though. But if it's out there, sooner or later it will turn up.

Well, a year-and-a-half or so later, I finally hunkered down and actually bought the book.

I think Dean did a good job overall, though there were some typos throughout the book (Jaimoe is frequently referred to as "Jamoie"). Whoever edited this should have had it proofread. It's not the end of the world or anything - I do this with any book I buy.

I know this book covers up through the year 2000, so I'm not going to gripe about the more recent stuff being missing. However, not counting the Instant Live releases, there have been ten Allman Bros. CDs released since then. Granted, most of them are either compilations or live albums, but still...wow!!

Hypothetically, if Dean were to update the book to the present day, would he account for the Instant Lives...or not???

This is available at hittinthenote.com, which is probably were most of these fine folks got it. I agree that the graphics are very cool, and no diehard Allmans fan should be without it.
