FSOTD #43/Revival (1970)
After a longish week which included a grungy, hacking illness (but no H1N1, thanks), I am happy to be back at the keyboard for Friday's Song Of The Day. The Allman Brothers released "Revival" as the opening song on their second album, 1970's Idlewild South. It was written by Dickie Betts, who is no longer with the band. The reason I chose "Revival" as FSOTD: It was the show opener the last time I saw the ABB 3 years prior in Buffalo, and in mere minutes I am taking off to see the Allmans with Widespread Panic here in Dallas. Yowza! Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks in one night - guitar heaven! More later.
