AllmansTest™ Vol. 12 – Statesboro Blues

We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

Back by unruly demand, we have the 12th installment of the AllmansTest™. This one focuses squarely on “Statesboro Blues,” a song featuring the legendary slide work of band leader Duane Allman.

“Statesboro Blues” quickly became a staple of ABB live shows, a cover that embodies the band’s signature guitar-heavy, blues-soaked Southern rock. Rolling Stone ranked it #9 on its list of the “100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time.” While that’s pretty damn impressive, many ABB fans continue to wonder why the work of Duane and Dickey Betts isn’t posted up at #1.
