The Allman Brothers Band: Rare Performances (1960s 1990s)
The Allman Brothers Band is widely considered to be one of America's greatest rock/blues bands, and an essential force in the creation of "Southern Rock" movement. By incorporating their own take on blues, jazz, and country music, and improvisation they created their own powerful sound. Join Rock Legends Live! host Bill Shelley as he presents rare concert films of this legendary band, showcasing their superb talents with performances of such classic songs as "Ramblin' Man," "Statesboro Blues," "Midnight Rider," "Melissa," "Dreams," "Blue Sky," "Southbound," and more!
The Allman Brothers Band was formed in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman (slide guitar and lead guitar) and Gregg Allman (vocals, organ, songwriting), who were supported by Dickey Betts (lead guitar, vocals, songwriting), Berry Oakley (bass guitar), Butch Trucks (drums), and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson (drums). The band achieved its commercial breakthrough in 1971 with the release of the live album At Fillmore East, featuring extended versions of their songs "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "Whipping Post." Even after the tragic early death of guitarist Duane Allman, the band found the strength to continue into greatness.
The Allman Brothers Band has won numerous Grammys and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This exciting presentation brings together a variety of footage not seen in almost 40 years, with rare concert footage, television performances, and backstage studio rehersals.
