About the image
This now iconic shot of band members Gregg and Duane Allman, Jaimoe, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Dickey Betts 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. 

Collector's Note:
This is a signed photograph. Jim Marshall’s iconic photographs are now extraordinarily rare, as very few were printed and signed at the time of his passing. A small inventory is still held by the estate. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
