I've got a question and maybe someone can help me out. Is Duane playing on the Blue Sky track at all?

A handle like that, and you ask THAT question?????

Yes, Duane's is the first lead guitar solo. It's one of the Brothers' most famous works.

Don't mean to be rude, just surprised.

SD, On EAP (btw BS is from that album) by reading carefully the credits you can find that Duane also played acoustic rhythm on Blue Sky. I always thought the Doobie Brothers were influenced by that classic. I have read Duane played it just 10 times live.

It's definitely a very small number. According to the ABBbase, it's only 6 times. The ones we have on tape are cool -- the best of those available comes from the Wherehouse on September 16, 1971. I think it rivals the amazing Eat a Peach version...it's at least close. Everybody who's a Duane-era fan (is there anybody who isn't? Okay then, just make it everybody) should have that show, it's a long one and it's the original band at just about the height of their game.

Good mention Marley, I need to get that show -- the 3/19/71 show from there is really good also. There weren't many gigs the Brothers played there that weren't fantastic.
Man was that a hot band in Sept. 1971 -- SUNY Stoneybrook 9/19 is amazing -- great versions of all the songs.
Gosh I wouldn't have even thought 6 times that they played Blue Sky -- makes me wonder if Boston Common 8/17 was one of the venues. I'd ask my brother, who went to the show, but I doubt he'd remember -- will look it up on the ABBbase.

I agree with Marley regarding the Wherehouse Show. That is an incredible version of Blue Sky. Duane does the prettiest solo, but the real hero of the song is Berry Oakley playing these beautiful melodic bass lines behind Duane's solo. He's like a third guitarist. Not to mention the fact that that show is completely awesome all the way through. Check out "Done Somebody Wrong" and Dickey on "One Way Out" and "Liz Reed."[Edited on 5/14/2002 by MichaelWilliams]

Dickey's playing progressed so much that many people weren't sure who did the first break, I remember he said that Duane did during a WPLR interview shortly after Highway Call came out. Listen to Dickey on Blue Sky from An Evening With the Allman Bros. and then listen to Duane. He's got to be smiling up there.

That's Duane and Dickie in Blue Sky. Perhps the part that caused you to ask the question was Dickie. Dickie tore up Blue Sky at the House of Blues in Chicago Last summer. It was absolautely awesome !

Have to agree with Michael about BO on that 9.16.71 Warehouse show. It is the finest example of what BO brought to the ABB. We are hearing an unmixed and representative mix of how Berry played. Bass as lead. On my copy you can hear the rafters shake from his bass. So melodic, it brings tears to my eyes. That is the one show I wil always have on my hard drive. Got it a few years ago, extracted it, and there it will remain. If anyone wants a copy, send me a note and I will gladly B&P or trade with it.
Peace

Goliath,
Glad to hear that we're on the same page regarding Oakley's bass on Blue Sky. Incidentally, I attended that show at the Roxy with Ryan Belair on Friday. He told me that he met you after the show. I have no idea where I was, possibly stumbling around the lobby, but its good to hear from you on the Forum. Take care.

Hey Michael! Damn, wish I would have hooked up with ya. I lived in Macon for many years. I am going to see Barry Richman Saturday at Riverside Bluez and hope you can make it out to see this guitar virtuoso. I brought him with me to see Dickey the other night. We had a blast!! See if ya can get Ryan to come down...

I'm going home this weekend and see no reason why I couldn't run up to Macon to see a good show. I've been to Riverside Bluez before and always enjoyed it. I'll speak to Ryan but doubt he'll attend. If possible, see you Saturday night.

Goliath,

Riverside Bluez is a cool place, nothing like a small, dark place to hear some good blues and get a nice liquor drunk on. Which is exactly what I did last time I was there. I have heard many good things for a long time about Barry Richman and would love to see him, but unfortunately I have a friends wedding to attend on Saturday.

Also I don't know if Michael mentioned this here before but he is from McRae, Ga. (if you know where that is), although he know lives in Valdosta. If I recall correctly that is not too far from where you live. Anyways I hope y'all get a chance to get together, I'm sorry I'll miss it.

Take care,

Ryan

Ryan, I am half way between Atlanta and Macon in High Falls. Barry plays Atlanta all the time. You would love his playing. www.barryrichman.com check out the calendar.

That's right, I always forget whether High Falls is north or south or Macon. When I go down to McRae I use that as a point of reference because I know that it is either halfway to Macon or halfway between Macon and the McRae/Dublin exit.

Thanks for the link I'll check it out.

Goliath,
Do you choose your home based on your taste in music? You used to live in Macon, but now reside in High Falls. That's perfect. I would suggest moving down to Statesboro, then Idlewild, then Hotlanta. Then, I believe you would have covered them all. At any rate, I won't know until the last minute if I'm going Saturday night, but the place is small. I also have dark hair and a beard, but the only thing big about me is my gut. If I go, I'll find you.
Peace,
Michael Williams[Edited on 5/22/2002 by MichaelWilliams]

Michael,
LOL. Used to live in SF, too. I hope you make it out to the Barry gig. It will be an intense show, I can tell you that.
