Description



Eight months before Duane Allman's death, ABB took the stage in Philly. Larry Magid had met the band a year earlier: "In 1970 I heard about a group from down South that hadn't released a record...Putting on a band without an album was not the norm, but word of mouth—buzz—counted too. I said okay—the Allman Brothers Band could play for three nights, for a grand total of $600. They drove up in a motor home and parked in the alley behind the Electric Factory. The club ran a line out to give them electricity. What a band! There were two drummers—not one drummer playing the front and the other the back; they were playing the same thing, creating a rhythm line that probably shook the sidewalk from 22nd and Arch to City Hall. Gregg Allman played brilliantly on a Hammond B3 organ and sang with the voice of somebody who was carrying the weight of the world. Duane Allman was as good a guitar player as I've ever heard...The Allmans were the perfect band for the time, more musical and melodic than the psychedelic bands, and with a fuller sound. They introduced blues-based music to a lot of white kids." Measures 12x20. NM, lightly affixed to backing board.
