Cover Alert: Allman Brothers Band – Needle and the Damage Done

The Allman Brothers Band’s Beacon Run continued last night in New York City, where the band delivered their ninth of 11 shows that makes up this year’s residency. A number of guests joined in the action on Friday including Bill Evans, Scott Sharrard, Berry Oakley Jr., Jeff Golub and Susan Tedeschi who lent a hand on percussion during the One Way Out encore. In the second set, the Allmans dusted off their Gregg-sung cover of Neil Young’s 1972 classic The Needle and the Damage Done.

The Allmans first performed Neil Young’s ode to the issues that heroin causes during last year’s March Madness run and played it again at last April’s Wanee Festival. A stripped-down version of the band featuring Gregg Allman and guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes on acoustics performed the cover as they did in last year’s takes.
