Duane & Gregg Allman

I watched the Allman Brothers doc­u­men­tary “After The Crash” on The CW this past week­end, which inspired me to write this article.

I’ve had this album for a long time. My orig­i­nal copy was on that thick, heavy vinyl with all the nicks and pops. I have always gone back to this album to do Allman refresh­ers. After I got rid of all my vinyl, I was with­out this for a while and I tried to piece togeth­er a “Duane and Gregg” from com­pi­la­tions like “Dreams,” but I was nev­er sat­is­fied with the result. 

Then one day I found out this album had been reis­sued on CD and my prob­lem was solved. I lis­ten to it fre­quent­ly and enjoy every minute of it. Pick up a copy — you won’t be disappointed.

Another note: I saw the Allman Brothers at the Nashville Speedway back in the “Eat a Peach” peri­od post-Duane but I’m not sure if Barry was on board. I fin­ished up my live Allman Brothers expe­ri­ence in 2016 at Centre College with a show from Gregg’s final tour. I will always love the broth­ers’ music.
