Holy moses, Allman and Betts' guitar weaving sound transcendent on Elizabeth Reed! Just been reading "Midnight Riders" the history of the band. Listen to the chorus - its the same as the intro to Liz Reed only in a major key. I clocked the distance from one to the other and it was 2 tenths of a mile. I saw Betts when he gave a presentation at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a few years ago and he talked about this song. However, I fell in love with Mountain Jam on Sirius/XM, so I downloaded the Live at Fillmore East album on itunes. There's some kind of energy at that place that I can't quite describe. I'd have thought everyone contributing to this thread would be aware of get a copy of this song Oh Why Not Tonight, a hymn popular in Churches of Christ (in which Dicky Betts grew up in Bradenton FL. I was actually in Macon this past weekend and visited the gravesite of Duane and Berry (they have a great view of the Ocmulgee River), along with checking out their first house (it is all boarded up now)and the locations of their deaths.

Helena's Episcopal Church cemetary..walls, overgrown and unvisited..an almost-buried 2'x4' marker headstone titled with "The Memory of Elizabeth Reed"...would have served nicely - albeit morbidly - as a hard bed..boys spent bookoo high-tripping times in Beaufort.
I was astounded to see that her daughter had knelt behind a toombstone bearing my name from the 18th century! Even weirder: Palestine began an "Elizabeth Read Days" festival this year, including casket races."Don't Want You No More" is the first song on the first album by the ABB. It is however not an "original" as the songfact states above. So therefore, "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is the first "original" instrumental by the band. Be sure to listen to the acoustic version on "An Evening with the Allman Brothers" a promotional disc which can be hard to find. He was devastated by Duane's death and subsequently had several accidents during the upcoming year. In the "At Filmore East" version, when it's his turn to solo, Duane Allman starts out by quietly rephrasing the first theme.
