No One To Run With

Thought it was a great show!The highlights were Woman Across the River,Black Hearted Woman with Other One Jam and The Same Thing with a slow bluesy start.Butch sat out for the Same Thing with Marc playing his drums and Oteil played a nice bass solo in the middle.Smokestack Lightning during No One To Run With was a treat also.They came onstage about 9:35 and played until 11:15,short but tight and well played!

I thought the band sounded fantastic. The crowd was much bigger than I anticipated (I'd expect 15,000 in a venue that sells out at around 20,000) and was really into the show. Gregg sang very well, minus the 2 misses on the opening of Statesboro and No One to Run With (the band just came around again to pick him up). The Smokestack Lightning-->No One to Run With included Warren playing 2-3 phrases of Mountain Jam, and I swear for a moment it sounded like everyone but him quit playing until they picked up back into No One to Run With. I have no idea why they got started so late, it would have been nice to get another song or two in there. All in all, a great time, great music, great show.

Derek slide on Dreams.

I cannot begin to explain how impressed I was with Gregg's vocals both nights of the Carolina run. It was noted he did miss a couple of cues last night in Raleigh, but for the whole, he was flat belting the lyrics out with all that he had. Thank you Gregg, you sounded great. The Other One jam at the end of Black Hearted Woman was tight, but as a Warren-nut, the new-ish arrangement of The Same Thing with Oteil's bass solo had to be my highlight of the night.

You guys in Boston are in for some great shows. Get out there and enjoy.

Warren went first in Dreams until the first buildup, and then it was Derek's turn, as I recall.

BHW was BLISTERING!

Great to hear this music again and see so many friends.

Agree...Black Hearted Woman took my breath away! That alone is worth the price of the instant live. Amazing interplay between Warren and Derek...bringing in some new vibes from their independent projects. Oteil was slammin' and overall, I felt like there was a gritty, bluesy feel. Some perfect imperfection.

Crowd was an interesting mix of Skynyrd fans ("Mr. Saturday Night Special") and of course, many over-the-moon with joy Allmans fans ("Revival"!!).

Loved it.

Was going to make this show, but circumstances dictated otherwise. Sounds like it was a good show and good time was had by all. Somewhere down the road, I'll have to "once again" cross paths with my ABB friends. as it's been way to longs. To all, you and yours take care.

How did Gregg do on Come and Go Blues? I always figured that would be hard to sing due to the wierd timing. If he can do that without getting lost, that's real progress imho.

I agree that Gregg's vocals were great - best I've heard in at least a couple of years. Derek and Warren were on fire. Overall performance was tight but too short. Having additional opening act (solo acoustic guitarist / vocalist whose name I can't recall) from 7 to 7:30 led to further delays with Skynyrd playing from 7:45 to 9 pm and Allmans not getting started until 9:35 and playing until 11:15 as previously noted. At 1 hour 40 minutes that is shortest show I have ever seen. If there was always going to be 3rd artist, it would have been nice to have an earlier start time. As it was I suspect a fine had to be paid for going past 11 pm noise ordinance. Let's hope for better time planning for future Raleigh shows.

BOTH! Warren took the first straight lead and then Derek took it into the stratosphere. One of the best I've seen.

I agree with you about Gregg's voice/singing. I commented more than once both nights about how strong he sounded - at one point (can't remember which night or song, getting too old) he attacked his vocal so aggressively that I was almost knocked back in my seat. He really sounded and looked VIGOROUS, WAY better than when I saw him on Piers Morgan a few months ago. I wasn't expecting that at all.

All in all, they were great both nights, with Charlotte getting the edge, IMHO. They came right out of the gate with Statesboro and OWO, two songs which I usually listen to with half an ear because I've heard them both more than 60-70 times. But in Charlotte they RIPPED into 'em, it actually sounded like they had almost just learned them as new covers and had something to prove. I was just shocked - I really expected the band to be, well, not flat, but rusty maybe? since they have been off most of the summer, but rest (at least for Gregg, Butch, Marc and Jaimoe) has definitely revitalized them.

There really was not one slack moment all night in Charlotte. After seeing and hearing (thanks to absnj) Warren and Derek jamming with Santana (and vice-versa) I was really kinda let down when Skynyrd was announced for Charlotte and Raleigh - no disrespect to them or their fans, but after the CLT show I walked out in total satisfaction. The show was maybe 105 minutes from start to finish, but as has often been the case at some of the shorter ABB shows I've attended, they made every minute and note count.

Raleigh was great too, but they got out of the gate a little slower, and maybe because there were a few repeats from the night before, (OWO, SB, MR) it just seemed that the intensity level was a notch lower. That all changed with BHW with a KILLER Other One Jam. And as has been said, NOLTRW with the extended outro into a few bars of SL, a slowed-down intro to That Same Thing, which was a nice twist and new to me, as well as a great Liz Reed also made for a great show.

At least as of right now the Allman Brothers Band seems to be firing on all cylinders and playing with an unusual amount of fire and with a great sense of purpose. I don't know what lit a fire under their a$$es but I feel VERY lucky to have been able to attend both shows in NC thanks to the kindness and generosity of my friend Deck. And it was fun revisiting Ron E.'s annual pre-show gathering and especially seeing bluedad, mash535, bigCTfan and Holt there. Just as it was great seeing Lana, EZMichael, Joe Bell and John Lynskey at the HTN booth, skybyrd (Betty), Tunney and Theresa, UncleJon75 and anyone else I may have forgotten.

And the BEST part was watching Brett, Deck's son, who is just about to enter Clemson and was attending his first ABB show, "get it", especially when Dad was getting another beer and wasn't around. That is priceless....!

The Road Truly Does Go On Forever......

Sorry you were not able to make it, Fred. You were missed.

Hey Rich! I think Dan means he wishes you had made it to the Atlanta show, he wasn't making a reference to the song Hot'Lanta.

Then again, maybe you knew that, and were just being clever. Sarcasm on the Internet is tricky....

Glad you got two good ones! I thought about making the trip to North Carolina, and if Santana was opening, I probably would have. Definitely enjoyed the Atlanta show, though.

Hey Rob! Can you give us a rundown on the ATL show? I was offered a ticket by Brock a while back but couldn't make it.

I always love your take on all things music. You know, you really should write for a living!

One thing I forgot to mention is that Warren's TONE seemed so much better to me at these two shows....I noticed he was using Marshalls, can't remember if he has always used 'em but whatever he was doing sounded like a definite sonic upgrade to me - his tone was much sharper and CUT much more than in recent years. I don't really like that "soft" Gibson tone he's used over the last few years. I really like it when he just ROARS and his tone's got BALLS. It looked like he was also using a Paul Reed Smith amp, but I know Derek has also been using one for a while. It was on Warren's side, though.

When he took Dickey's solo on One Way Out in Charlotte it was the closest I've heard his Les Paul sound to the tone Dickey got, which to me was the best HIS LP ever sounded.

Maybe I just had auditory hallucinations (very possible) but it sure seemed to me like Warren's tone sounded better than it had in a long time.

Hey Rich, I wrote a pretty long review of the Chastain show in another thread, but in a nutshell, we got arguably the most unique setlist of the tour and I was pretty satisfied.

They haven't played Born Under A Bad Sign, That's What Love Will Make You Do, or Franklin's Tower at any of the other shows on the tour so far, and all three had great moments. We also got a great, great version of The Sky Is Crying, and they have only played that one other time, in Saratoga.

I agree that Warren's tone sounded great, fuller and fatter and less shrill than it can be. He was batting cleanup on Dreams in Atlanta, and as much as I love Derek on that song, Warren sounded really good to me that night. There was one time when he seemed like he could have gone into a really shrill, repetitive riff like he sometimes does in Dreams, but he slid right out of it into a more pleasant register and kept on wailing. Very strong version!

Derek absolutely hit the note during the intro to Liz Reed. Both he and Warren had great solos on that song, but the intro was magic. Derek held a nice sustained note that sounded very Santana-ish to me.

I thought the show felt a little short, just over 2 hours, but since both the Raleigh and Charlotte shows were around 1:40, I guess I'm grateful we got as much as we did.

Thanks for asking Hope all is well with you bro!

Thanks for the review, Rob. Doing great. Didn't realize there was a separate thread for the ATL show. I'll check it out.
