The Allman Brothers Band - Beacon Theatre, October 2014
The six shows at this venerable old theatre were a bittersweet goodbye to fans of this 45 year old, Rock â€˜N Roll Hall of Fame band. Coming from all over the world to hear the magic brought out one last time by these 7 stellar musicians, no one left disappointed. Each performance created a very special feeling between the band and its audience, even more so than normal, as we all knew the end was near.
It was very evident that the fans were giving all of their love back to this band after every song. For the whole run the theatre was in unison as fans loudly sang along to their favorite songs. You could see the band visibly reaching deep inside themselves to give it everything they had, every song, every night. They came out with a focus and determination to leave it all on the stage and they succeeded magnificently, as they always have.
The Brothers played Will the Circle Be Unbroken throughout the run. A sentiment that seemed to say that their legacy will live on through the music they created and from all of the musicians and fans they have inspired through the years. Check out each nightâ€™s set list, show description and purchase by clicking here. The road does indeed go on forever...

Eat A Peach Art Posters
David Powell and Flournoy Holmes were the two skilled artists that created the artwork for the legendary Eat a Peach album. While the outside of the album was inspired by some 1920s postcards, the inside was pure, authentic 1970s psychedelia. They hit the high-water mark with that drawing and you can read about its creation in HTN #75. For many years fans have requested posters of these images and we finally have them available for you! Please click here for more information and to order.
Allman Brothers Band -
During the Brotherâ€™s 45th anniversary year they had some very cool mushrooms hanging over the stage. We had so many inquiries about them that we contacted the manufacturer and had some made for the fans. They arenâ€™t inexpensive but they look very cool. Check â€˜em out by clicking here.
Summer has faded away and the kids are back in school, but
coverage of the music you love continues unabated at Hittinâ€™ the Note. Issue
# 82 contains in-depth features on some of your favorite artists - several of them
are Hall of Famers, while others are members of the next generation - but they all
create music that matters.
Itâ€™s hard to improve on something that is considered to be the greatest of all time,
but it is certainly special when you can add something to it. That is the case with
At Fillmore East, the iconic live album from the Allman Brothers Band. Released
in 1971, Fillmore East sets the standard by which all live performance presentations
are measured. Now with the issuing of The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings the
original album has been expanded to include all four sets of music the ABB played
on March 12 and 13, 1971, as well as the groupâ€™s June 27, 1971, appearance at the
closing of Bill Grahamâ€™s venerable East Village theatre. As Executive Producer Bill
Levenson told HTNâ€™s Brian Robbins, fans of the Allman Brothers original line-up
have received a wonderful gift; fourteen unreleased tracks of music from the best
ever. Bill shares what went into the compilation of The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings,
and itâ€™s a story comparable to the timeless music. Read the complete Editor's Notes
Talton â€“ Until After Then - New studio CD Released October 28th
We think Tommy Talton has written some of the
best music of his career on this upcoming release. He is at his finest when reflecting
on life, love and social issues. As a wordsmith his lyrics are as timeless as the
melodies he creates. As a guitarist he has an exquisite sound that is totally his
own. While many of his songs go deep and are reflective, he is not above bawdy humor
on occasion. Listen to the lyrics well and you will pick up on some of the cleverness
that is ever present but usually understated.
The 11 original songs on this album are each unique - different time signatures,
different keys, different genres of musical styles - but they all have that down
home Talton sound. It's a real pleasure listening to Tommy's excursions - from his
home base of Southern roots music to Sgt. Pepperish Beatles to country into raw,
Zeppelin type surf music (did I just write that? What until you hear this surprising
tune!) - these songs are wonderful gifts to be enjoyed time and again. Classic Talton!
