Peter Hanson from CanadaYes, this is a great tune. I heard somewhere that it was about driving into Atlanta on a freeway at night. Is there any truth in this?

Steven from Nyc, NdI saw the Allmans on 3/12/71, the weekend they recorded that now live classic album at the Fillmore East when they opened for the mighty Johnny Winter. I wish I could build a time machine and go back to that show every single night! The dual guitars in "Hot 'Lanta" remind me of 2 warriors on horses having a sword fight. I still listen to Duane and Johnny, who is now a good friend of mine regularly. It keeps me strong and honest. SKYDOG FOREVER!!! Johnny Winter too!
Jim from Laramie, WyFirst word I can think of to discribe Hot 'Lanta is scary. It scared me that anybody had the capability to create this song and bring it to life. Absolutly unbelievable musicianship all around by the Allman Brothers Band. The opening with Gregg Allman on the Organ just maks your stomach sick, and then Duane and Dickey come in with dueling riff that makes you sweat from it's hotness. The song is a jam put into 5 minutes of intensity, with the dueling drums of Jaimoe and Butch Trucks, and the forever soul grabbing thump of Berry Oakley's bass. The ending of the song is perfect, a must listen of the Allman Brothers Band...---never recorded in studio--only live, Fillmore East album
Jack from Oak Ridge, NcClimactic, blistering, fret-melting, HOT solo by duane allman.
Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, Scsome people still call Atlanta Got'lanta. I heard my dad use it.
Grey from Knoxville, Tngood god the allman brothers are good
