  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScGood song! Good message!
  • Barry from New York, NyThe ABB's shows are performed with a light show known as the Brotherhood of Light. They used to have a cool light show backing "Revival" which featured images of 60s protests and Woodstock. Recently, I haven't seen them do it anymore.
  • Barry from New York, NyAt recent Allman Brothers Band shows they have been extending the song a bit with a jam before the end. This song makes a good concert opener.
  • Matt from Charleston, ScSuprisingly, for having a hippie air about them, the Allmans (and/or song owners) have "sold out" some of their songs, including this one.
    Was actually adapted for a Red Lobster TV ad a few years ago that used the refrain "Lobsters everywhere".
