It is obvious that the book was lovingly curated by both Willie Perkins and Jack Weston. I found the introductions to each chapter by Willie and Jack to be very informative in their own different way, Willie as the road manager for the band and Jack as an avid Allman Brothers collector. I thought the book was very well organized, easy to read and the images comprehensive.
Reading the chapter on Posters, Handbills and Programs, it immediately took me back to visiting my local head shop with the excitement of buying Live at the Fillmore East and marveling at the band posters and tapestries on the wall and how the smell of incense would stay with you long after leaving the store. As someone who is passionate about the band and their history, the chapter on Vintage Photographs was very exciting because I had never seen many of the images before. The reproduction quality on the photo’s was excellent and focus very sharp. One of the unexpected discoveries in the book was being able to examine the Income and Expense ledger sheets from 1970, where you could actually see that the band got paid $1,250 to play the Warehouse in New Orleans on November 7 and then $4,000 to play the Fillmore East in New York on December 12.
There is so much material in the book that I will be able to go back and review chapters and images for many years to come to gather more information about this incredible time in rock and roll. I highly recommend The Allman Brothers Band Classic Memorabilia 1969 - 1976 not only for diehard Allman Brothers fans but also music fans in general because as Michael Buffalo Smith said, “this is a Big House Museum in book form.”
