Most artists, after having completing an exhaustive tour, would be content to spend some well-deserved time relaxing at home. Not Gregg Allman! The legendary rock icon is on the road again, mere weeks after the last ABB show of the year in Florida.

One of our favorite things to do at the HTN office is to work with the Tour Mystic and the Allman Brothers Band to come up with the annual selection of the West Best and West Best El Grande Packages. For those of you not familiar with this, the West Best Package is 6 of the best shows from the Summer/Fall tour for the price of 5. Given how impossible it is to narrow down the selection to just 6 shows we also have the West Best El Grande Package - which is 12 of the best shows for the price of 10. After countless hours of listening to every ABB concert from May through October and after countless hours of debating the finer points of each nominee we finally have a consensus! Click here to find out which shows made the list and to order. Please also stay tuned for info on the 2009 Summer Set - we expect to announce that package soon.

There are some groups that burn so brightly, in hindsight it is no surprise that they burned out before they had a chance to rust. Such bands explode onto the music scene with the power of a supernova, leave an undeniable mark on the world, then are gone so quickly that you wonder if it was all a dream.

During their early 90s heyday, the Arc Angels were such a band. After the tragic death of Stevie Ray Vaughan, bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton from Vaughan's band Double Trouble joined forces with guitarists Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II and starting jamming at the Austin Rehearsal Center, or ARC, which gave them their name. Their 1992 debut album Arc Angels set the world on fire, hitting the Billboard Hot 200 and creating a new blend of blues and rock music. It seemed that from the ashes of Stevie Ray's passing, a great new chapter in Texas music would emerge.

What happened next was a sad story, but all too common. Substance abuse issues broke apart the band just as they were on the threshold of stardom, and it appeared that the Arc Angels day in the sun was over. They broke up at the end of 1994, barely two years after they began. Bramhall went on to with the likes of Eric Clapton and Roger Waters, while Sexton became a member of Bob Dylan's band, but the legend of the Arc Angels never died.

Luckily for music lovers everywhere, that wasn't the end of the story. As anyone who saw their performance at this year's Wanee Festival could tell you, The Arc Angels are back and better than ever! Original members Charlie Sexton, Doyle Bramhall II and Chris Layton have reunited to create a new CD/DVD set, titled Living In A Dream, that reveals the power and glory of this unique band in a new light. Besides great live versions of classics from their first album like "Living In A Dream" and "Too Many Ways To Fall," this set includes the first new Arc Angels studio tracks in nearly two decades.

Brand new originals "What I'm Looking For" and "Crave and Wonder" continue the Arc Angels legacy of great songwriting, and this package also contains a rip-roaring cover of Paul McCartney's "Too Many People." Besides these new tracks, the songs from Arc Angels is played with fire and passion, plus the additional skill and maturity brought on by time and wisdom. The group still has that incredible chemistry that separates great bands from merely good ones, and we are lucky to have them back. Click here to order this great live set!

As the leaves turn colors and temperatures grow colder, the outdoor festival season draws to an end, but not before the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park holds their last festival of the year, the funk-flavored Bear Creek Music and Arts Festival.

This year, Bear Creek promises to be even more fun than last year, with many of the same acts returning, and lots of great new additions to the mix. Karl Denson, saxophone legend and festival mainstay? Check. Toubab Krewe, the musical dynamo from North Carolina who has brought traditional African music to the jam scene? Check. The iconic Fred Wesley of James Brown's band, and Bernie Worrell of P-Funk fame? Both will be there.

All that is on top of the funky stew that made the 2008 festival such a good time. Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Trombone Shorty, Galactic and others will be there to represent New Orleans. Lettuce and Soulive and the rest of the "Royal Family of NYC Funk" will be making the trip down from the Big Apple. And, representing Atlanta will be our very own favorite - the Yonrico Scott Band!

Earlier this year, a revolutionary web service called Moogis allowed music lovers all around the world to enjoy the Allman Brothers legendary 40th Anniversary run at the Beacon Theatre in New York, live and in real time, with high quality video and audio. Nothing like it had ever been done before, and this pioneering experiment created a whole new kind of web-driven concert experience. Besides watching the shows live, subscribers were able to watch the shows as many times as they like afterwards.

However, like many innovative ventures, Moogis ran into unforeseen costs and ended up losing money. If Moogis is going to continue past Sunday, they need your help. If you are already a subscriber, a $60 payment will extend your subscription to March 1st, 2010--but only if they get 500 such extensions. If not, Moogis will go dark on 11/15.

This is too good an idea to let it die. The good folks at Moogis plan on webcasting next year's Allman Brothers run in New York City, and if you want to see that happen, they need your help now. If you support Moogis now with a $60 payment, or a brand new $125 subscription, besides getting four more months of the best on-demand music on the Internet, they will apply that payment towards the subscription cost of the 2010 run.

The final cost of the 2010 isn't set yet, since the ABB are still trying to find a new home in NYC and aren't sure how many shows they will be playing. You know it will be something special, and Moogis will bring it to you, if you give them a chance.

If they don't reach their goals by 11/15, they will of course refund your extension or new subscription, but if enough of you do that, it won't be necessary.

Check out for details, and help keep the music playing!

Join us at as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Allman Brothers Band all year long!
