    Nice post. I saw Greg Allman interviewed on CBS (Sunday Morning) and I never knew he was admitted to med-school and had every intention of becoming a surgeon.

    Word is, they’re grinning because the moment right before this was shot, a couple band members had run across the street and scored a bag of weed. They ran back, sat and the shot was taken.

    @brian, you are thinking of the front cover image where they are all laughing – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AllmanBrothersBandAtFillmoreEast.jpg

    A beautiful standalone.

    A testament to their artistry.

    Nice selection Michael.

    My wife was named after this song. We just played it for our three year old. Thanks.

    Live at Filmore East is as good as it gets.

    Great band. Great picture. Can’t wait to see them in NYC at the Beacon in late March. The feature on CBS Sunday Morning was great.

    Classic photo from Jim Marshall…..

    According to Jim Marshall, they were all smiling because he told them ” I’m the only person in this state with any coke and if you want some you better smile”. That’s what is being covered up in Duane Allman’s hand ( I think that’s who it is ).
    The shoot was actually done in Georgia before the tour started.
    John Varvatos now owns most of Jim Marshall’s collection and the original sheet can be seen at the store in Las Vegas.
