Brain Farmer was a friend to all of us. Somehow, as busy as he was, he always took the time to share a funny or interesting story about Johnny Cash, Gibson guitars, industry gossip and, of course, insights into Warren, Woody and Matt’s artistry. Over the years we had countless pre-show conversations and late night meals together that were always entertaining due to his wit and perspective. At any festival HTN attended, Farmer would always come out and visit with us in the tent, keeping us laughing constantly. In the accompanying picture, from Mtn Jam last year, Brian instructed Terry Bradley (our Art Director) to put on his best “rock star face pose.”

A few years ago HTN had an excellent conversation with Farmer that covered a wide range of topics. It really captured the essence of the man that so many of us love. Please click here to link to the interview by Brian Orzell.
 HTN #81! 

Summer is just around the corner, and with its arrival will come warm evenings and live music under the stars. Hittin' the Note is proud to cover the artists you've come to love, with depth and insight that only we can deliver.

On March 26, 2009, the Allman Brothers Band marked their fortieth anniversary with a performance for the ages at New York City's Beacon Theatre. The magic of that night has been captured on 40, a brand new DVD that allows you to enjoy the sights, sounds and energy of that once-in-a-lifetime show. HTN # 81 kicks off with the complete liner notes to 40 for your reading pleasure.

John Fogerty: the name alone invokes memories of some of the greatest three-minute songs ever written in the history of rock and roll. The leader of and driving force behind Creedence Clearwater Revival, John continues to make new music, but has also made a deliberate decision to revisit the CCR songs he refused to play for decades. John sat down with HTN's Alan Paul to discuss his long and storied career, and we know that you will be taken by this provocative interview. Click here to read the complete liner notes!

 At Fillmore East: The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings! 

Since its opening chord, rock and roll has been about playing live, and no group did it better, and with more passion and improvisational skills than the original Allman Brothers Band. Founded in 1969 by visionary guitarist Duane Allman, the ABB combined elements of blues, rock, jazz and country into a combustible mixture, and in doing so created a new genre of music. Their music was best heard live, and the group's finest moments came at the Fillmore East, promoter Bill Graham's iconic concert hall located in New York City's East Village. It was there that the group reached their peak, as captured on 1971's At Fillmore East, the band's legacy recording, the recording by which all other live sets are measured.

For the first time, the full spectrum of all four sets played on March 12 and 13, 1971 is presented on At Fillmore East: The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings, and it makes for a fascinating audio look inside the shows that yielded the greatest live album in rock history. In addition, the band's June 27, 1971 performance, where they were selected as the closing act at the final show held at the Fillmore East, also is included in this collection.

 Allman Brothers Band – 40th Anniversary DVD! 

The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND's annual run of shows at New York City's Beacon Theatre is always magical, but 2009's 40th anniversary run was unique, with over 60 guests sitting in with the band. But on March 26, 2009--the 40th anniversary of the original lineup's first performance--the band honored the legacy with a show that belonged to the Allman Brothers Band, and no one else. That special night, where they played their first two albums in their entirety, back to back, was filmed and has been released on DVD as "40." Of the 700 plus shows that HTN has attended, this is the very best one, period. The anticipation in the audience was unbelievable and you know how this band responds to their fans. They played their hearts out, pure and simple. The Allman Brothers Band - Hittin' the Note like no other night! Please click here for more info and to order.

 Berry Oakley and Duane Allman - Brothers Never Forgotten ! 

Hittin' the Note is honored to offer the first official Berry Oakley T-shirt, featuring Berry and his brother Duane. The picture was taken by Stephen Paley in a dressing room with low lights that, back in 1971, prevented color photographs from being taken. We believe the photo was either taken at the Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach, Florida on September 16, 1970 or on Oct 16th in South Carolina where the Toy Factory (Marshall Tucker) opened for the band.

 Allman Brothers Band, Play All Night – Live at the Beacon Theatre 1992 

This new 2 CD set, to be released on February 18th, showcases The Allman Brothers Band's very first time playing such an extended run at the Beacon. In the spirit of The Allmans' iconic 1971 live album At Fillmore East, Play All Night features Allman, Betts, Trucks, Jaimoe, Haynes, Woody and Quinones taking the Beacon's stage by storm. Through their most-requested songs, deep cuts and new favorites, the Allmans expertly showcase that unmistakable raw energy - at once practiced and spontaneous - that still make them one of the most beloved live acts.

 Allman Brothers Band, Live At Great Woods DVD 1991 

Recorded in the September of 1991, originally for Japanese TV, The Allman Brothers Band's beloved Live At Great Woods showcases the classic American rock band reaching a new generation of audiences. Original band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe were joined by new guitarist Warren Haynes, bassist Allen Woody and percussionist Marc Quinones in one of the most powerful lineups in the group's history. This concert - recorded before a crowd of nearly 20,000 adoring fans at the Great Woods Amphitheater in Massachusetts - features a top-notch set of fan favorites, with a fiery acoustic mini-set included for good measure.

 Show Reviews: Pittsburgh Blues Fest & Newport Jazz Fest 

Fans of blues, jazz and roots-rock may wish to consider two festivals in the Northeast that push the envelope a bit, breaking down the barriers to what is commonly thought of as blues and jazz. They are the Pittsburgh Blues Festival, held every year the last weekend in July at a spacious park in suburban Pittsburgh, and the annual Newport Jazz Festival, held mostly at Fort Adams in Newport, where even on hot August days, patrons are surrounded by cool breezes blowing in from Narragansett Bay.

Both are affordable affairs: a weekend ticket at the Pittsburgh Blues Festival, where all proceeds benefit the greater Pittsburgh Area Food Bank, is $45 in advance or $50 at the gate; weekend passes for the Newport Jazz Festival run from $95 to $155, and special reserved seating packages are available.

Because Ron “Moondog” Esser - the owner of Moondog’s Café, an area blues club, who books the Pittsburgh Blues Festival - believes in broadening the audience for blues, I make it my business to get out there for this three-day celebration that benefits the Pittsburgh Food Bank. Held on a beautiful site, Hartwood Acres, which is land donated to the city by Andrew Carnegie, the line-up at the Pittsburgh Blues Festival always pushes the envelope in terms of what is regarded to be the blues. The genre, while not as broad-ranging and all-encompassing as jazz, remains healthy because it keeps evolving. Click here to read the entire review!
