Duane Allman and Derek and the Dominos - November 11, 1970 up_arrw.gif

allman.gifMIAMI - Despite published reports to the contrary, guitar virtuoso Duane Allman will not be joining Eric Clapton's new group, Derek and the Dominoes. Allman reportedly contributed significant guitar parts, including his acclaimed slide, to the forthcoming double album that was recorded in Miami. Clapton will take his new ensemble on a seven-week tour of the eastern U.S., which kicks off October 15th at Rider College in Trenton, New Jersey. While Allman will play with the band on whatever dates possible, his allegiance remains with his blues-rock group the Allman Brothers who have just released their second album.

When asked to comment on what the sessions were like, Allman said "I went down to listen and Eric knew me, man, greeted me like an old friend! The cat is really a prince, he said, 'Come on you get to play', so I did. We'd sit down and plan it out, work out our different parts, and try it one time. Then we'd say, 'Well let's try some more of this here, and some of that there.' Everybody contributed, just sorting it out, Memphis style. Most of it was cut live, not much overdubbing, and it was all done in ten days."

I always wished I could have heard Duane play live with that band-which is one of my all-time favorites. Three years ago I was listening to a lot of Delaney and Bonnie and Carl Radle's sister posted something on Delaney's MB asking for anyone to come forward and get his family some of his old recordings for posterity-he had passed away a time before (don't know when exactly) but my bassist Tim responded to tell her what albums he actually worked on-Carl Radle was one of his idols
