He's Gone"

U.S. debut of "He's Gone". We named it "Duane's Song" after hearing the chorus and then having the Allman's come out and play. We thought it was a tribute to Duane! "Nine mile skid... he's gone," etc. Called it that for years after we knew better. Funny how that happens.

Long hot summer days . . .

15-years-old, in a crowd of friends with my bewildered girlfriend in tow. Blistering sun, young women taking off their tops, exhausted hipsters with heads wrapped in wet towels. Some iconic moments: a spacy Other One, and endless Casey Jones, and of course the Allman Brothers jumping the stage. But even then, I could tell something wasn't quite right. The absence of Pigpen was huge, and the finale seemed more like repertory than psychedelic exploration. They were still the Dead, and well worth camping out overnight for, but there were some definite chinks in the armor.

Dillon Stadium

Home of the Bulkley H.S. Bulldogs and the Hartford Knghts in football. Babe Ruth,Lou Gerhig,Warren Sphann and the Savitt Gems in baseball. I saw the Rolling Stones, McCoys and Beau Brummels there in '66. What a hot day it was for this show near the banks of the Connecticut River. Back then you could bring in coolers and the ten of us carried in six huge ones. Fruit,fluids,sandwiches and thank God for lots of ice. We were ready for the day. I think the show was supposed to start at about 2:00 but the Dead came on real early.I was a little bummed that Pig wasn't there but the band was as hot as the day.Took their time and played til sundown. Cars were pulling over on Interstate 91 South just to watch and listen. After Sugar Magnolia out comes Dickie Betts,Berry Oakley and Jaimoe for NFA,GDTRFB,Hey Bo Diddley and Johnny B. Goode. If your mind hadn't been melted yet by the heat then it was finished off by the music. What an unbelievable end to a blistering Sunday!! When Jerry and Phil get pushed LOOK OUT!!
