Allman Brothers - (ALLB001BWOL)

Photographer: Baron Wolman
Location: Macon, Goergia
Edition: Limited
Date: 1969

"In March 1969, talented music writer Stanley Booth and I visited Macon, Georgia and Muscle Shoals, Alabama, on assignment for Rolling Stone. Among other southern music royalty, we hung out with Phil Walden of Redwal Music, the Macon music company Phil started with Otis Redding. At Redwal we were taken into the recording studio where we were introduced to the Allman Brothers; the band was in the studio rehearsing. This was very, very early in the career of the Allman Brothers; the band had only recently been shaped into its new form by Walden. Obviously I made some photographs. At the time I didn't have a wide-angle lens which could capture the entire band in the studio in a single 35mm frame. So I did the next best thing: I shot one side of the studio then carefully turned the camera horizontally to shoot the other side of the studio. In this manner I was able to include Phil and all the musicians in the two consecutive frames. Cut to the present. Through the magic of digitization I was able to meld the two frames into the single panoramic image you see here. From left to right: Berry Oakley, Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, Jaimoe Johanson, Gregg Allman and Phil Walden."
