The intensity of the Allman Brothers Band’s 40th Anniversary Run didn’t drop one bit last night. I fired up the near hi-def Moogis stream just in time to catch the Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More opener which featured pictures of Duane Allman being projected to screens behind the band.
There wasn’t a lack of special guests as 65-year-old blues guitarist Johnny Winter joined the band during the first set for Red House, You Don’t Love Me and Highway 61. For part of the second set, the Allmans welcomed guitarists Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos for blistering versions of Don’t Keep Me Wondering and Good Morning Little Schoolgirl. Rosas and Hidalgo came back out for the Blues Jam > One Way Out encore.
