Allman Brothers Band stream 1972 classic from archival 2003 live release

The Allman Brothers Band are streaming a live version of their 1972 classic, “Ain’t Wstin’ Time No More”, from their recently-released archival package “Peach Picks: Cream Of The Crop 2003.”

The lead single from the group’s third album, “Eat A Peach”, was written by Gregg Allman following the 1971 motorcycle accident death of his brother, guitarist Duane Allman.

“Peach Picks: Cream Of The Crop 2003” is dedicated to the memory of Gregg, who passed away in May 2017 from complications of liver cancer at the age of 69.

The 36-track, 4 disc set presents a collection of the best performances culled from six shows by the legendary group in July and August 2003, including material from events in Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Darien Center, NY, Hartford, Charlotte and Raleigh … with no song repeated.

“That was an important time in the growth of that incarnation of the ABB,” recalls guitarist and Supervising Producer Warren Haynes. “We had just released Hittin’ The Note and everybody was psyched to be playing a lot of new material from an album we all were very proud of and there was new life being breathed into a lot of the older songs.”

Originally recorded for the then-nascent “Instant Live” CD series, guest musicians on four “Cream Of The Crop 2003” songs include Susan Tedeschi, Karl Denson and Branford Marsalis.

Continuing the tradition of providing quality content for fans, "Peach Picks: Cream Of The Crop 2003" is available in an array of configurations. The full curated four-CD set is offered, both physically and digitally. Each of the full six concerts are also available for completists, marking the first time any of this music has been made available digitally.
