The Allman Brothers Band is about to kick off their latest March Madness string of NYC shows.  It will be hard to beat last year's run: they were joined, over the multi-night stand, by Eric Clapton, Gary Rossington of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh of The Grateful Dead, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top and many others.  The box set costs $500.  You got that right.  But it's 49 CDs! Not bad for that price! Although you can get the concerts individually for $27 each.  Find out more here. I have a recording of the March 19 show which featured Clapton.  I've often said that he can be pretty lazy (my opinion). When he joined the Allmans onstage, that was not the case. You should check out some of these shows.
