Another outstanding show packed with great guest performances and killer jams! Blues legend Johnny Winter joined the band for three songs, including his signature bluesy version of Dylan’s “Highway 61 Revisited” and a ripping rendition of Hendrix’s “Red House.” Cesar Rojas and David Hidalgo from East LA’s own Los Lobos brought some West Coast flair to tunes like “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’” and “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl.” Check out the cleverly-named "Losbros Jam" with the Los Lobos guys, featuring a sly reference to “Walk Don’t Run” by The Ventures!

Of course, many of the night’s best moments came without guests. Derek was absolutely hittin’ the note on “Stand Back” and “Revival” in the first set, and the whole band created a brilliant tapestry of sound on “Les Brers In A Minor.” Check out Oteil’s funky bass work on “Wasted Words,” and marvel at the youthful power in Gregg’s voice on “Come and Go Blues.”

Another great show in a legendary run!

As the band entered the first weekend of the Beacon run, they took it up a notch with a scorching show! The parade of all-star guests continued, with blues legend Buddy Guy and Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell from iconic jamband Phish contributing to a show for the ages.

The whole first set has a bluesy tone, with fantastic versions of the Howlin' Wolf classic "Who's Been Talkin'" and Muddy Waters' "You Can't Lose What You Never Had" before Mr. Guy even hit the stage. Buddy wasted no time, taking the band deep into the blues with a ripping take on "The Sky Is Crying" that showed why he is one of the all-time greatest blues guitarists. The biting tone and aggressive attack that inspired Clapton and Hendrix is on full display on this tune! Buddy also left his mark on "You Don't Love Me" and "Southbound," which featured the first appearance of Trey and Page, who would rejoin the ABB at the start of the second set.

The second set was a jam extravaganza--Only 5 songs including the encore, but 90 minutes long! A passionate, rollicking "I Know You Rider" opened the set, and then things got really interesting with an expansive 21 minute "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" that allowed Trey and Page to add their own style to this epic jam. The set continued with an otherworldly "Dreams," with Derek taking the lead solo, and a powerhouse "Jessica" that shook the Beacon to its foundations. This set is truly a jam lover's dream!

Two of the best moments of the show came at the very beginning and the very end. Warren and Derek opened the show with an intimate duet on "Little Martha" for the second time in the run, paying tribute to Duane Allman with a beautiful reading of this delicate piece. The "Statesboro Blues" encore may look unremarkable on paper, but this was an extended, jammed-out blockbuster of a "Statesboro," with Warren leading the band and crowd in a "Hey! Hey! The Blues Are Alright!" chant at the end. A fitting way to close out a great night of music!

# = James Van De Bogert, drums
& = Joe Bellia, drums

Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky? This show highlighted the old-school blues side of the band, with guests Bruce Willis, Boz Scaggs and the Asbury Jukes Horns contributing significantly to the vibe. One departure from that was the second appearance of “New Instrumental,” solidifying its place in the rotation and providing some jazzy counterpoint to a non-stop blues and soul explosion that rocked the roof off the Beacon!

Boz Scaggs was one of several guests at this year’s Beacon run who played with Duane Allman, and this version of “Loan Me A Dime” rivals the legendary version that Boz cut with Skydog. Scaggs also sings his heart out on “Sick and Tired” and “Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City,” as well as adding a lot to the Dylan classic “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry,” a new addition to the ABB catalog. Add the raw power of the Asbury Jukes horns, and you have a mini-set of epic proportions, with the Allmans transformed into the world’s greatest rhythm and blues revue.

Bruce Willis is known to most as an actor, but he can blow a mean blues harp, as he shows on “One Way Out” and “Smokestack Lightning.” As always, some of the best moments featured just the core ABB, like the awe-inspiring “Whipping Post” encore, which contains some of Derek’s most blindingly brilliant guitar work. A can’t miss show!

Just when you thought it wasn’t possible for the ABB to take it up another notch, they do! This outstanding show is on fire from start to finish, from the delicate “Little Martha” that opened the show to the overpowering “Mountain Jam>Dazed and Confused>Mountain Jam” encore that left the Beacon crowd shaking their heads in amazement.

The first set alone was like a show in itself, spotlighting the new jams that have made “Rockin’ Horse” and “Revival” into entirely new creations. Check out Gregg’s vocals on the poignant “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More” and a smoky, bluesy “Gambler’s Roll.” He has never sounded better! A mammoth 15 minute “Woman Across The River” is undoubtedly the best the band has ever played, and when jazz legends Randy Brecker and Lenny White join the band for “Dreams,” the result is some of the most sublime jamming humans have ever witnessed. And that is just the first set!

The second set kicks off with a tender, sensitive version of “Melissa,” with Gregg on acoustic guitar and singing from deep in his soul. Then the band swung to the other end of the spectrum, going from soft acoustic to raging electric and inviting pedal steel wizard Robert Randolph on stage for ferocious runs through “Turn On Your Lovelight” and “One Way Out.” Brecker rejoined the band for the quiet intensity of Miles Davis’ “In A Silent Way,” which mesmerized the crowd. Lenny White and bass icon Stanley Clarke joined in for an “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” that spanned the divide between the ABB and the jazz icons that inspried them, making for a unique jam, including a bass duel between Oteil and Clarke that you’ll have to hear to believe!

At this show the ABB once again paid tribute to Duane Allman by playing with some of his closest musical companions, John Hammond and Bonnie Bramlett. Veteran bluesman Hammond adds lots of grit and soul to his mini-set of blues tunes, including a spectacular version of "Shake For Me" that surely had Duane smiling down from the heavens! Other first set highlights included the first "Desdemona" of the run, with Gregg delivering an amazing vocal performance, and a tight, powerful "Hot'Lanta."

For the second set, it was Ladies Night at the Beacon, led by Bonnie Bramlett of Delaney and Bonnie fame. Her intimate duet with Gregg on "Oncoming Traffic" was one of the highlights of the whole run, and her daughter Bekka contributed some family harmonies to smokin' versions of "Only You Know And I Know" and "Comin' Home." When Hammond joined Bonnie on stage for "Come On In My Kitchen" it created a very special moment. With Susan Tedeschi, Bonnie and Bekka on "The Weight" we got a vocal version of the Allman Sisters Band that was like going to church for gospel hour! The first "Preachin' Blues" of the run was another reason this show was a special one.

St. Patrick's Day in New York is always a fun occasion, and the 3/17 show lives up to that tradition! Superstar Sheryl Crow and Tommy Talton and Scott Boyer of Cowboy joined the band for this show, but the band were on fire before the first guest hit the stage. Check out the extended jam version of "Rocking Horse," which has evolved into a totally new song in recent years. The first "Soulshine" of the run featured a "Little Martha" jam, and "You Don't Love Me" and "New Instrumental" were extraordinary displays of musical mastery. And that was just the first part of the first set!

One of Duane Allman's most poignant performances was his dobro part on "Please Be With Me," so it was fitting for Talton and Boyer to join the band for this gem of a song. "All My Friends" and Talton's "The Got Song" were also tasty and well-received. When Sheryl Crow hit the stage she added her signature vocals to "Midnight Rider," sung almost as a duet with Gregg, and a tender rendition of the Blind Faith classic "Can't Find My Way Home," which the ABB had never played before.

You can't talk about this show without mentioning Derek's solo on "Ain't Wastin' Time No More," a masterpiece of slow gradual buildup with a dizzying, Himalayan peak. Warren and Derek's guitar duel at the beginning of "Hoochie Coochie Man" isn't too bad either!

For years it had been a dream of many Allman Brothers fans, the ultimate best case scenarion. What if Eric Clapton joined the ABB on stage to play some of the songs that Duane Allman played on Layla? With Derek Trucks recently touring with Clapton, and this year's Beacon run being dedicated to Duane, the buzz was even stronger than usual this year.

Well, it is no longer just a fantasy, it really happened, and the results are beyond your wildest dreams! Speaking of which, besides the Layla material, check out EC on "Dreams"! The highlight of the whole Beacon run might be this version of "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?" with Derek and Eric pushing each other into the stratosphere during the outro jam. Every bit as good as it sounds on paper, and so are "Little Wing" and "Anyday" with Clapton. The "Layla" encore belongs in a category of its own, with some of Derek's most sublime work on slide. A historic night of music for the ages!

And that doesn't even count the fantastic first set, which had a second set feel to it, especially the explosive "Whipping Post" closer. Gregg has never sounded better than he does on these versions of "Statesboro Blues" and "Done Somebody Wrong," and "Revival" keeps evolving into one of the band's best jamming showpieces. Did we mention Gregg's solo take on "Oncoming Traffic" to start the second set, or the blistering "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl" with Danny Louis from Govt Mule on keys?

Step right up and get it while it's hot! Every day that goes by without hearing this music is a day you will regret later.

They say lightning never strikes twice in the same place, but they're wrong! Many people thought it was virtually impossible for the second ABB show with Eric Clapton to equal the first, but in many ways this show surpasses Thursday's concert. There seems to be no ceiling to what the Allman Brothers Band was capable of in this Beacon run!

Check out the first set, a blockbuster that would be a worthy second set to most shows, complete with a "Mountain Jam" sandwich to open and close the set. "44 Blues" and "Gambler's Roll" provide some deep blues, and the end sequence of "Ain't Wastin' Time No More>Mountain Jam Reprise" is just as good as it sounds. Oteil's solo bass version of "Little Martha" adds a different twist to the Duane Allman classic, which had been played as a duet by Warren and Derek earlier in the run.

The second set is Clapton time, and Slowhand seems relaxed, comfortable and ready to jam. The Derek and the Dominoes classics sound just as good, if not better, than Thursday, but there are a few surprises in store. This performance of "Stormy Monday" might be the best ever, from Gegg's passionate vocals to the blues guitar master class being put on by Derek, Eric and Warren. Clapton soars even higher on this version of "Dreams" than he did on Thursday, and his jazzy explorations on "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" show Slowhand venturing far from his blues-rock comfort zone and proving that he still has his mojo. This "Layla" encore may be even more emotional and powerful than the one from the previous show, if that's possible.

Another historic must-have show!

Susan Tedeschi lovers rejoice! HTN's favorite blueswoman is all over this show, adding her soulful vocals and guitar to FIVE songs, and she has never sounded better! These versions of "Little By Little" and "Lost Lover Blues" really allow Mrs. Derek Trucks to shine. Never before had the ABB given Susan so much of the spotlight, and as she always does, Susan rose to the challenge.

Of course, Susan wasn't the only special guest at this concert. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes Horns were also in attendance, adding some brass firepower to everything from "The Same Thing" to "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." Keyboard legend Bruce Hornsby also added a lot to this show, including a great version of his tune "Grandma's Hands," which also featured Susan and the Juke Horns. The real standouts for Hornsby were fantastic versions of "Jessica" and "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed," with his jazzy piano playing recalling the great renditions of these songs from the early 70s with Chuck Leavell on the keys.

By the time the show wrapped up with a "Southbound" encore, featuring Susan, Bruce AND the Juke Horns, the ABB had created another magnificent work of musical art.

Even after the epic Clapton shows and a Beacon run full of special guests and surprises, this show stands out from the crowd! This may be the most guest-packed show of all, with everyone from harmonica master Thom Doucette and saxophonist supreme Ron Holloway to Susan Tedeschi and the Kingpins of King Curtis fame joined the fun, and that was just the first set! As always, some of the best highlights belonged to a recharged Gregg Allman, who sang his heart out on "Desdemona," which also featured some tasty sax licks from Holloway.

Thom "Ace" Doucette played harmonica on the classic Live At Fillmore East album, so it's only fitting that he joined the band for "Done Somebody Wrong" and "You Don't Love Me." This Ace still has a few tricks up his sleeve! It was also a great tribute to Duane to feature the members of the Kingpins (Jerry Jemmott - bass, Bernard Purdie - drums and Jimmy Smith - keys), on the King Curtis classic "Soul Serenade," which took the whole Beacon to church. "Memphis Soul Stew" added Mike Mattison to the mix and took it even higher. Have mercy!

As if determined to outdo the remarkable first set, the second set opened with a "Little Martha>Blue Sky>Little Martha" sandwich jam that showcased some of the prettiest guitar playing of the entire run. John Bell of Widespread Panic added soulful vocals to the Blind Faith classic "Can't Find My Way Home" and a downright nasty "Walk On Gilded Splinters," and WSP guitarist Jimmy Herring was on fire all through the second set. Check out this extended jamathon of a "Les Brers In A Minor," which shows Derek and Jimmy playing together with the special telepathy only they have. Did we mention the extended "Statesboro Blues" encore, Ludlow Garage style?

Another great night in a great run! This show is full of highlights, including a spectacular version of "Rocking Horse" that included "Little Martha" and "Blue Sky" jams. What other show features both Thom Doucette AND John Popper on harmonica? Or blues legend "Steady Rollin'" Bob Margolin AND slide guitar master Sonny Landreth? Not to mention Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. This show is almost an embarrassment of riches!

"Going Down Slow" was a debut at this show, and this version with Margolin and Doucette is a perfect tribute to one of the best moments on the Duane Allman Anthology. "Dreams" is no slouch either, full of Landreth's distinctive slide licks. The "Southbound" that closes the first set with Popper and Landreth is worthy of a second set closer, it packs so much energy!

The second set started off with the band wearing fake beards in tribute to Billy Gibbons, who joined the band for fierce, bluesy versions of "Jesus Just Left Chicago," "Stormy Monday" and "Statesboro Blues." John Popper was back on stage for a powerful "The Same Thing," which also featured a mighty bass solo from Oteil.

Even with all the guests, as they have so many times through this run, the ABB stole the show. This version of "Mountain Jam," complete with a full version of the blues classic "Smokestack Lightning" in the middle, may be the best jam of the entire Beacon run. Derek really soars on the second half of the song with some of his finest playing.

No special guests. No rare covers. For their 40th Anniversary, the Allman Brothers Band brought it back to basics. Nothing fancy, just the best live band in the land playing their first two albums in their entirety with a fire and passion that lesser bands can only dream of achieving.

The first set was the band's self-titled first album, played in sequence, and every song was filled with power and electricity. The ABB has been nailing "Black Hearted Woman" during this Beacon run, and this version is no exception, with a wicked extended jam. Although Derek is always great, his work on "Dreams" and "Whipping Post" in the first set is nothing less than remarkable. However, the star of the first set might have been Gregg Allman, singing every song with gusto and playing the heck out of the organ.

The second set was Idlewild South, played in sequence, including the first "Please Call Home" of the run. This tender performance was another highlight of a great vocal night for Gregg, as was a scorching "Leave My Blues At Home." This "Revival" was an explosion of joy, rendered in the extended jam version the band has been doing lately, and Warren is absolutely on fire on vocals and guitar in "Hoochie Coochie Man." However, the highlight of the second set, and perhaps the entire show, was the deep, powerful "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed" that saw the band hitting on all cylinders.

A great way to commemorate the "Beginnings" of the band!

The next-to-last show of the 2009 Beacon run was a down-home Southern affair, with Jimmy Hall of Wet Willie and Kid Rock joining the festivities. Hall was a dynamo in the first set, leading the band through a bluesy "The Sky Is Crying" and serenading the crowd with two Wet Willie numbers, "Keep On Smilin'" and "Grits Ain't Groceries." Kid Rock hit the stage for a heartfelt version of "Soulshine" and a cover of the Marshall Tucker Band classic "Can't You See," which also featured original MTB drummer Paul Riddle.

The second set opened with a truly historic event--The Allman Brothers Band played "Freebird"! For those of you who are big Lynyrd Skynyrd fans, this is something you absolutely have to hear. Of course, the fun didn't end there, with Ivan Neville adding some New Orleans funk to "Who's Been Talking" and Gregg's son Devon Allman sitting in on "Midnight Rider" and "One Way Out." Paul Riddle added some drum firepower to a spectacular "Les Brers In A Minor," and Riddle, Jimmy Hall, and Oakley Jr. all contribute to a smoking hot “Southbound” encore.

The final show of the 2009 Beacon run was one for the ages! Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of The Dead added their own psychedelic flavor to this show, and former ABB keyboardist Chuck Leavell made a triumphant guest appearance on tunes like "Jessica" and "Mountain Jam."

The core band was hittin' the note like only they can, with the extended "Rocking Horse" a first set standout. Check out the teases and jams of everything from "Third Stone From The Sun" to "Blue Sky" wrapped up in this monster version! "Who To Believe" made its first appearance of the run, with Gregg singing from the depths of his soul on this number. Gregg's old Daytona pal Floyd Miles added bluesy soul on "Born Under A Bad Sign" and "Stormy Monday," and Chuck Leavell finished off the first set with a version of "Jessica" that stands with the best ever.

The second set was the Allmans meets the Dead, with fascinating results. This version of "Sugaree" is dripping with soul, and Chuck comes back out to lend his keyboard skills to an incendiary "Franklin's Tower." Leavell also joined the band for a ferocious "Mountain Jam" that ended the second set in style, before an extended "Statesboro Blues" encore finally ended the show at 12:38 AM, some four hours after it started!
