D&G'S 31

  Duane & Greg Allman is an album containing demo recordings for American rock band The 31st of February's second album, recorded at TK Studios, Hialeah, Florida in September 1968. The planned album was never completed as the band broke up shortly afterwards, and the demo recordings remained unreleased until Bold Records released this album in May 1972. It was then attributed to Duane and Gregg Allman who in the mean time had established themselves in The Allman Brothers Band together with Butch Trucks, The 31st of February's original drummer.

Bolder Records released the opening track "Morning Dew" as a single in 1972, backed with "I'll Change for You". Neither the single nor the album made it into the record charts.

The album was re-released several times after 1972 on various record companies and with varying cover art in various countries, including Germany and Japan.

    "Morning Dew" (Tim Rose, Bonnie Dobson) – 3:45
    "God Rest His Soul" (Steve Alaimo) – 3:55
    "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" (Jimmy Cox) – 4:32

    "Melissa" (Gregg Allman, Alaimo) – 3:15
    "I'll Change for You" (David Brown) – 2:57
    "Back Down Home with You" (Brown) – 2:25
    "Well I Know Too Well" (Alaimo) – 2:15
