Album: Eat A PeachReleased: 1972Charted:
The Allmans recorded this at the Fillmore East in March 1971. It's a live cut that follows three studio tracks on Eat A Peach.
The song is about a guy who is having an illicit affair with a woman whose husband has apparently come home. He's starting to wonder if she's worth the hassle, and one thing is for sure: he's not going out the front door, since he doesn't want to meet up with her man.
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 song. 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.
