Manley Fieldhouse - Syracuse, NY 4/7/72 (2 CDRs)
Duane Allman's life is tragically cut short by a motorcycle accident in Macon, Georgia. The Brothers decide to carry on without adding a new guitarist, feeling that Duane cannot be replaced. Dickey Betts plays all the guitar parts, and fans hear him play slide for the first time.
