Allman Brothers Band’s ‘Eat a Peach’ to Be Celebrated With 40th Anniversary Radio Special

Allman Brothers Band

Gregg Allman remembers it as “two different projects … a strange time back then.” Dickey Betts recalls he and his then-band mates going through “a whole lotta stuff.”

They’re referring to the period when the Allman Brothers Band recorded ‘Eat a Peach,’ one of the Southern rock group’s greatest efforts. Allman and Betts both have a lot more to say about the classic 1972 album in a new InTheStudio radio special that’s airing nationwide this week.

As one might expect, a recurring theme in the special is how the group coped with guitarist Duane Allman’s death during the recording of ‘Eat a Peach.’ Duane (Gregg’s older brother) died Oct. 29, 1971, following a motorcycle accident in Macon, Georgia — home of Capricorn Records, the ABB’s label at the time — less than a month before his 25th birthday.

The acclaimed album, released in early 1972, takes its name from a Duane Allman quote and features him on such tracks as ‘No Way Out,’ ‘Little Martha’ and ‘Blue Sky.’
