Play All Night!: Duane Allman and the Journey to Fillmore East

An erudite, exuberant look at the early Allman Brothers Band. In the 1960s and 1970s, Muscle Shoals, Alabama, was home to the storied FAME recording studio, its founder and producer Rick Hall, and its impeccable house musicians, the Swampers. Clarence Carter, Wilson Pickett, and Aretha Franklin cut records at FAME, as did the Rolling Stones and Lynyrd Skynyrd (who gave the Swampers a shout-out in “Sweet Home Alabama”).

Play All Night!: Duane Allman and The Journey to Fillmore East

Play All Night!: Duane Allman and The Journey to Fillmore East. Reading Bob Beatty's Play All Night!: Duane Allman and The Journey to Fillmore East is sometimes akin to becoming embroiled in a tortuous tug-of-war between the author's intellect and his passion. But this musician/historian deserves kudos for the way he maintains a precarious balance between his self-avowed devotion to the Allman Brothers Band and what were no doubt strict academic guidelines within which he worked (this tome was originally the thesis for his PhD).

Widespread Panic Honors Duane Allman On First Night Of NOLAween With “Mountain Jam”

Monsters of swamp rock, Widespread Panic, returned to the Louisiana bayous for their first night of spooky, boogie-woogie. The three-night Halloween spectacular, commonly referred to as NOLAween, has a storied history of themed shenanigans, nasty curveballs, and off-the-wall bust-outs and debuts. The jam band took the stage at the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans for the first night. The setlist was made almost entirely originals with a glorious tribute to The Allman Brothers Band and conventional covers from Vic Chesnutt and Jerry Joseph.
