The Allman Brothers- MIDNIGHT RIDER & SOULSHINE - Live at the Beacon Theatre (2003)

From smyletube...

Awesome tuneage from America's greatest rock-blues-R&B-jazz-country band!

"Midnight Rider" by The Allman Brothers Band, originally from their secong album Idlewild South, released in 1970. Written by Gregg Allman and Robert Kim Payne.




"Soulshine" is a song recorded by The Allman Brothers Band and released on their 1994 album Where It All Begins. It was written by guitarist Warren Haynes with vocals by Gregg Allman. The song's title originates from Hayne's nickname, given by his father. Although it was never released as a single, it still remains one of the Allmans' best known songs among fans and concert-goers.
When Haynes and bassist Allen Woody formed Gov't Mule, they took the song with them. Gov't Mule performs the song live at their concerts and it was included on the band's Live... With a Little Help from Our Friends, The Deep End, Volume 1, and The Deepest End, Live in Concert releases.
"Soulshine" was originally recorded and released by bluesman Larry McCray on the 1993 album "Delta Hurricane," with permission from Warren Haynes.

DVD Released September 23, 2003

The ABB were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.

  • Great post. I'm doing all I can to keep up. =)
    Derek Trucks is a nice edition.
    Was Butch the original drummer? I know Derek has had affiliations with this band for years.

      Claude Hudson "Butch" Trucks (born May 11, 1947 in Jacksonville, Florida) is an American drummer who is one of the founding members of The Allman Brothers Band.

      One of Trucks' first bands was local Jacksonville band The Vikings, who made one 7-inch record in 1964. Another early band was The 31st of February which formed and broke up in 1968. This group's lineup eventually included both Duane Allman and Gregg Allman. They recorded a cover of "Morning Dew", by More..

  • glad I found this smyle gem too. love that DVD (bought it but no longer own it. karma :)

    i wish my old VHS of woodstock'94 didn't fry in NoHo a while back. That set (with Dickey Betts in full form was KILLER!). If you could find any of that (ALL, I MEAN! lol) I would love to see it here on LL. Not demanding, just requesting and hoping. Please...
