SOUTHERN GARAGE

                           Recall requested by Pete Greenwood  in Perth, Western Australia



 THE ALLMAN JOYS CIRCA 1966
GREGG ALLMAN ON KEYBOARDS, DUANE ALLMAN ON GUITAR, BILL CONNELL ON DRUMS AND BOB KELLER ON BASS


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, Bob Johnston, at Columbia Records, backing a girl trio called The Sandpipers In true Beatles-esque style, Johnston was more interested in the girls... Eventually, they went on to form Hour Glass and then the Allman Brothers Band.
