All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Allman Brothers Band, Manchester, TN, 6-10-2005

Well tonight at the Beacon Theater in New York the Allman Brothers play their last show.  Hard to believe it.  But it is coming to an end.  The band started in 1969 and survived the deaths of founding members Duane Allman and Berry Oakley.  And they even survived the falling out between Dickey Betts and the rest of the band.  Greg Allman, Jai Johanny Johanson and Butch Trucks, held it together and found replacements, and for the last fourteen or fifteen years it has been a solid stable group.  And this last version of the band has been as good as ever.  So in honor of 45 years of the Allman Brothers I'm posting this recording.  It is one of the few in the last decade or so that was not commercially released or sold on their web site.  And it is a pretty nice but short show, and decent sound quality.

  1. I've enjoyed the AB from the beginning and it is hard to think that their run is coming to an end. Time will tell.

  2. Can't wait to hear this - thanks for sharing, AJ!

  3. Wow... I didn't realize they just played their last-ever show! I knew this was their last year, but hadn't kept up with what the final date would be. Makes me all the more glad I saw them last Labor Day in concert!!

    Thanks for this show as a testament to how great they have been in concert for all these years. Can't wait to hear a recent version of "Mountain Jam" in particular - and them doing the old Derek & The Dominoes song (Why Does Love...) from Duane's days is a fascinating choice!!
