The Longevity of the Allman Brothers

I wrote about a new oral history of the Allman Brothers for Paste. See the piece here. Before Duane Allman started the band, he played as a session guitarist at Muscle Shoals, working with Wilson Pickett and Aretha Franklin. Below, check out the part he contributes to Boz Scaggs’ overlong “Loan Me A Dime.”

 

(Sidenote: Scaggs’ sound changed immensely in the years after working with Duane at Muscle Shoals. Compare “Loan Me A Dime” with the smooth disco of “Lowdown”–less than half the length, more than twice the groove.)
