This now iconic shot of band members Gregg and Duane Allman, Jaimoe, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, and Berry Oakley in the throes of laughter, was taken early one cool morning in Macon, GA, 1971. Marshall stenciled the name of the band and album onto one of their flight cases and had the roadies stack them up for the shoot.
Recorded at Fillmore East in New York City, on March 12-13, 1971, and released July of that year, this double live album is one of the Allman’s best selling records and ranks at #49 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
There is also a great "Jim Marshall story" attached to this image that explains why they are all laughing in this shot.
This is a signed original Lifetime Photograph by Jim Marshall.
Lifetime Photographs were typically:
Printed as 11" x 14" or 16" x 20" (sheet size), and were not designated as limited editions (with very few exceptions).
Produced as silver gelatin prints (black & white), or C-prints and pigment prints (color), and occasionally as platinum and dye-transfer prints.
Printed and signed by Jim Marshall between the mid-1990s and 2010. Older pieces are usually smaller and dry-mounted, and we classify those as "Vintage."
These signed photographs come directly from Jim Marshall's estate archive, and are now extraordinarily rare and increasingly valuable.
Pieces will usually ship within a few days of purchase.
Buyers will receive a certificate of authenticity following delivery of your artwork.
