Les Bres, High Falls and throw in Duanes Song.
If the intructions to the song were not there, so much would be missing.
One of the qualities of the ABB that always set them apart from other bands.
Instead of just going right into it, its an interesting ride to the theme.

I would definitely agree. You mentioned those three, but when you look at Mountain Jam and Liz Reed, particularly their arrangements today, its pretty similar. In MJ you hear the drums and you know exactly what is coming, but its sometime before you hear the main theme in its full glory. In Liz Reed it seems I can pick it out after the first chord because there is such a distinct sound, but they turn the slow intro into one heck of a jam in itself. When you hear those first chords of Les Brers I instantly get excited.

Having the introductions is cool, but what really makes them is that the Allman brothers instrumental themes are consistently some of the best ever. MJ, Liz Reed, and Les Brers all have such definitive melodies, MJ picks up momentum like a snowball rolling down a hill, Liz Reed ascends into a the classic riff with a different, but addicting rhythm, and the bass line of Les Brers pushes the song over the top even before the two guitar melody comes in...

I've been listening to EAP this week and Berry's bass line just drives Ler Brers. I wish I had a way of phasing out the guitars and just listen to BO on that one.

Les Brers for sure...

Sounds like a band tuning up and then WOW...

Very orchestral when the band does that

Thats whats cool about the 3 tunes I mentioned early on. The introductions are just that. Not used anywhere else in the song once the main themes starts.

I was going to post this yesterday, but everyone seemed to be talkin' ABB instrumental introductions.

IMO, one of the best introductions in R 'n' R!

Besides us both attending the 8/11/89 show, we seem to share a lot in musical tastes!

I've noticed too. This intro w/Hunter & Wagner is just a thing of beauty, absolute dual guitar magic. Their connection is right up there with Duane and Dickey's...

I've read that Lou Reed got really ticked off about Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter getting so much attention and praise.

So he gave them the boot.

The new arrangement to You Don't Love Me is similar, at least when they open a show with it. One guy starts noodling around, the rest join in one at a time and pretty soon the house is rocking. Not an instrumental I know, but similar theme.

Also the way they opened Blue Sky and sometimes One Way Out years ago, with Dickey literally soloing with no band and then into the tune.

The intro to 'Revival' is a great instrumental in iiself and the acustic guitar lick on 'Midnight Rider' really sets the right atmosphere for the song.

The comparison of ABB to orchestra's hits home with me - used to love the pre show introductory tuning up and instrumental jamming before turning it up for the first song. Especially back in the days of the 89-90 reunion tours.

Good call.
Not instrumentals but the YDLM-like extended intro to DKMW and the building intro (5.19.09) to Horse (with the fantastic Derek led middle section) and the gun slingling trading before the head on BHW. Occasionally there is a great extended jam off the changes in Done Somebody Wrong - Atlanta last year second night. All additions in the last year or so, except for BHW. Awesome and fresh. And still heavyweight champion....

Would a nod to Hoochie Coochie Man be out of place here? I love the way Derek and Warren trade licks before they get into the song....
