That time Dickey Betts told me why there were eight guys on the cover of the Allman Brothers’ 1992 live album

By Steve Newton

Gather ’round all you Dickey Betts fans. It’s time for the Newt to post another one of those audio excerpts you Allman Brothers freaks seem to love so much.

This one’s from my third interview with Dickey, back in ’92 when the band was touring behind An Evening With the Allman Brothers Band: First Set.

I counted eight guys in the album’s Kirk West-shot cover photo, which was one more than on the previous year’s Shades of Two Worlds.

So Dickey set me straight on who the extra body belonged to.

Have a listen:
