One of the biggest bands to come out of the 20th century, the Allman Brothers Band established themselves from 1969-1971 when original members Duane Allman, Gregg Allman, Berry Oakley, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, and Jaimoe wrote and produced some of the most definitive songs of Southern Rock. The band struck tragedy when founding member Duane Allman died in 1971, after the recording of Live At Fillmore East and before the release of Eat A Peach. Berry Oakley died a year later in 1972. The 45 years since the band’s formation went on in memory of these two Brothers.On March 11, 12, and 13 of 1971, The Allman Brothers Band played at Bill Graham’s Fillmore East, and recorded it for a live album. Advertisements for the shows read: “Bill Graham Presents in New York — Johnny Winter And, Elvin Bishop Group, Extra Added Attraction: Allman Brothers.” Though while Winter was billed as the headliner, by the third night, the Allman Brothers were closing the show. This became one of the most legendary recordings of all time.A week after the recording of Live At Fillmore East, the band continued on with their live shows with a performance at The Warehouse in New Orleans. Perhaps the fan-favorite venue of the band’s early years, the times spent playing at The Warehouse are considered some of the best ever. With their playing at an all-time high, these recordings are some of the best to go back and listen through.This particular recording includes a 22-minute “Whipping Post” and a 44-minute “Mountain Jam.” Enjoy the 3/20/71 show below:Setlist: Allman Brothers Band | The Warehouse | New Orleans, LA | 3/20/71Statesboro Blues, Trouble No More, Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’, Done Somebody Wrong, One Way Out, Liz Reed, Midnight Rider, Hoochie Coochie Man, Hot ‘Lanta, Berry Oakley’s “revenge,” Revival, Stormy Monday, Don’t Want You No More, It’s Not My Cross to Bear, You Don’t Love Me, Whipping Post, Mountain Jam

Luckily, the picture does not show my blood pressure or my shaking legs.The park ranger noted an interesting fact. While many are terrified of alligators, gators kill far fewer people each year than vending machines. In fact, 38 people have fallen victim to vending machines since 1978. I can’t get alligator vs. vending machine statistics, but allegedly, alligators killed 9 people from 1999 through 2014.So the ranger may very well be correct.Now, that’s not the whole story.I’m guessing most of you have at least one vending machine where you work. And I’m hoping that most of you do not have an alligator inside your office. So people interact with far more vending machines than alligators every day.But still, the perceived risk between the two is interesting. What scares us more? continue reading »

A 22-year-old woman was on Thursday shifted to the government-run Nari Niketan women’s home in Jodhpur on the direction of the Rajasthan High Court, which has ordered the police to register a criminal case on her family’s complaint alleging that she was forcibly converted and married to a Muslim youth.The woman, Payal Singhvi alias Arifa, appeared in a veil in the High Court on Wednesday during the hearing of a habeas corpus writ petition filed by her brother. The petitioner alleged that a youth, Faiz Modi, had blackmailed and kidnapped his sister when she was going to college, after harassing her for several months.The woman’s family has charged that her ‘nikahnama’ (marriage contract) was fake and was prepared after her forcible conversion to Islam. The court directed the district administration to make arrangements for her stay in the Nari Niketan until the case against her marriage is taken up next week, and ensure that no one from her own family and from Mr. Faiz’sfamily meets her.The police have registered an FIR against Mr. Faiz on the court’s direction, under Section 366 (kidnapping, abducting or inducing a woman to compel her marriage), Section 342 (wrongful confinement) and Section 384 (extortion) of the Indian Penal Code.A Division Bench of the High Court, comprising Justices Gopal Krishna Vyas and Manoj Kumar Garg asked the police to investigatethe woman’s conversion and the authenticity of ‘nikahnama’, said to be solemnised on April 14 this year.The woman told the Bench that she had appeared in the court on her own volition. The Bench recorded in its order that the woman had denied that she was under threat or inducement by anyone. However, when the police produced ‘nikahnama’ in the court, the Bench asked how the police could assume that her conversion was valid on the basis of “just an affidavit over a stamp paper of ₹10”.The court posted the matter to November 7.
