Allman Joys - Early Allman - CD
The Allman Joys was an early band with Duane and Gregg Allman fronting. It was originally the Escorts, but it eventually evolved into the Allman Joys. Duane Allman quit high school to spend his days at home practicing guitar. They auditioned for Bob Dylan's producer Johnson, at Columbia Records, backing a girl trio called The Sandpipers. Eventually, they went on to form the group Hour Glass and then The Allman Brothers Band.
