Album: Eat A PeachReleased: 1972Charted:
The Allmans recorded this at the Fillmore East in March, 1971. It's a live cut that follows 3 studio tracks on Eat A Peach.
This is a cover of a blues song by Sonny Boy Williamson. It is heavily reworked in the Allman's style.
This was one of Duane Allman's last performances. He died in a motorcycle accident on October 29, 1971.
Duane Allman played his trademark bottleneck slide guitar on this. It was released after his death on Eat A Peach, which was dedicated to him.
Berry Oakley comes in too early on the bass after the drum solo and messes up Duane's slide solo. The drummers turn the beat around and cover it smoothly. (thanks, bob - Cincinnati, OH)
