Hittin' the Note is excited to announce that the Wanee Festival Allman Brothers Band Live CDs are almost here! We apologize for the delay, but we wanted to make sure the sound quality equaled the quality of the performance. Now that we've done a little sonic surgery to remove the high wind noise, the CDs are being manufactured as you read this. Both shows were full of great classics, new jams, and the dynamic interplay between members that makes the ABB the best live band in the land. From the "Les Brers" opener on Friday night to the "Mountain Jam>Whipping Post" encore on Saturday, there is a lot here to feast your ears on! If you order both shows, we will include a copy of the snazzy Wanee program that we produced for the festival, while supplies last. Click to order! Be sure to check out the 2007 Wanee Poster by Lindsey Rodgers by clicking on the poster image below.

Speaking of Wanee, we have several new web features up on, including a photo collage of the 2007 Wanee Fest, comprised of the brilliant images from the cameras of Lindsey Rogers and C. Michael Stewart. We also have an engaging story on blues legend Pinetop Perkins, and our archive feature is from Issue #24 on guitarist Jimmy Nalls of Sea Level. Also, be on the lookout for a write-up on Jazz Fest 2007 by HTN's George Henry. We're expanding our web content, and from now on you can expect to see many more new stories every month on

The motto of the 10,000 Lakes Festival is "Music, Nature, Euphoria" and here at Hittin' the Note we are big fans of all three!

This year Hittin' the Note celebrates our 15th anniversary, and in honor of that we have reprinted our first 15 issues, which have been sold out for a long, long time. Click if you want to have a copy of these rare collectors' items, featuring stories on everything from the early days of the band in Macon, Georgia to the ABB induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

For many of us, our first exposure to Vassar Clements was his playing with Dickey Betts on the Highway Call album and the subsequent tour with Betts back in 1974. Through the years his playing added immensely to the many bands and artists he jammed with. This DVD was recorded at Seney Stovall Chapel in Athens, GA on December 18, 2004 with a supporting cast of stellar musicians very familiar to Hittin' the Note readers. The performance was an amazing event; filled to the brim with spontaneous jams, and will not soon be forgotten by those attending. Click here to find out more.

Thank you for your support of Hittin' the Note, and all the wonderful music we bring to you. Keep your eyes and ears open for more new, happening items, and support live music whenever you can.
