I just checked on Michael Ahern and discovered he died in New York York City in November 2015. Ahern had been producing he light show each year for the 9/11 memorial in Manhattan each year with his production company.

In 1971 he worked for Bill Graham at the Fillmore has a stage manager. Bill often introduced the bands playing there himself but just before the ABB did Statesboro Blues, Graham wasn't seen so Ahern went to the Mic and simply said "Okay the Allman Brothers Band" with no big build up or excitement. But it was the version of the song Tom Dowd used.

I'm sure Ahern had no idea the ABB would go on to become a major band and that his voice would be on an album that sold over 1 million copies, a Duane Allman Anthology album that sold over 500,000 copies and 1991's 1969 to 1979 A Decade of Hits which sold over 2 millions copies.

Enough penetration to mean his voice was saying Okay The Allman Brothers Band somewhere practically every second of every day.

Hmm, I always thought that was Kip Cohen saying "OK the Allman Brothers Band".

Bill Graham most often introduced his bands himself but must have had to handle something when the ABB took the stage so Michael Ahern, Bill's stage manager who made sure the bands and their gear were there and ready to go, grabbed the mic and unlike Bill, just quickly and in a matter of fact manner, just said " Okay the Allman Brothers Band".

Bill can be heard on the 1976 live album Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollars Gas. Just before Waisted Words recorded live at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco Bill says something like " We want to introduce some Southern musicians if you will come along with us please. On piano Mr. Chuck Leavell. On bass Mr. Lamar Williams. On drums Mr. Butch Trucks. Also on drums Mr. Jainoe. On guitar and vocals Mr. Richard Betts. On guitar, keyboards and vocals Mr. Gregg. Allman. From Macon, Georgia...the great Allman Brothers".

I've heard Bill introduce other bands and he would take time to talk to the audience and when he introduced the band he always but some energy in his voice. Michael Ahern delivered his introduction almost as a throw away line but it's the ine we are all use to. Okay the Allman Brothers Band. Then if you listen closely you can hear Duane Allman counting off Statesboro Blues.

Some may not know they recorded a studio version of Statesboro Blues in 1970 for Idlewild South but it didn't make the album which I always thought odd as it was a song the band played almost everytime from the very beginning.

But in 1971 the Fillmore East version became THE version and the best version. It is flawless and the music just flows. And Duane's slide solo has a note in it that just kills. The best compact slide solo I've ever heard.

The killer note Duane hits on his slide solo according to the version I just played on YouTube from Fillmore East which has 4.2 million hits comes at 1:39 in. It's the baddest note I've ever heard on a slide solo. And I wonder if Duane actually decided to play that note or if it just came out and surprised Duane. Over the years Ive had guitar players tell me that note is the gold standard of really cool notes on slide and Duane may have not expected himself. It just happened.

There is an almost undetectable timing flaw right after Duane's solo and just before "My mama died and left me" that might have kept it off of "Idlewild South"

I think Gregg's vocals were the issue, It sounds like he had a cold, If I'm remembering right? It was on boots then made the box set.

Nah, his vocals sound okay there, it's from a different source that I'm remembering.

Interesting - you mean the 1st note of bar 5 of his solo?
Whether it surprised him or not, he hit the same note again the next bar.

It continues to amaze me how on point they ALL were on this album.

Love the band scenes with the slide work and many faces of Gregg. Still sweet.

Ha, cool, I'm surprised this thing still has legs almost 10 years later. Always glad to see people still dig it. I even sell a print based on it from time to time.

Are you guys talking about the extended note that he hits?

I can't find the exact YouTube video because none of them have 4.2 million hits.

Very interesting discussion but especially so for those of us that do not have a natural musical ear & limited musical knowledge.
