Allman Brothers: Back Where It All Begins

On the true 40th anniversary of the Allman Brothers Band's formation in Jacksonville, FL, the boys are paying the ultimate tribute to their legacy and Brother Duane by performing the group's first two studio albums in their entirety. The first set tonight (and their first album) is the self-titled The Allman Brothers Band, released in 1969. The second set tonight (and their second album) is Idlewild South, released in 1970. This evening's encore, Statesboro Blues, is the first track off of their third album, the concert recording At Fillmore East.

To answer your question, WAY FREAKING COOL! It doesn't get much better than that. Saw them twice last summer with Ratdog and hoping they'll be in the midwest again soon.
