Ronnie Hawkins & Duane Allman.
Sorry to hear The Hawk passed a few months back.
Ronnie went up to Ontario, Canada for most of his life after leaving Arkansas and started bands up there and when the Hawks were formed they included a few members from what would later become a band known as The Band (lol) who ended up as Bob Dylan's backing group when Bob switched over from folk to electric.
So the Hawks had rotating members at the time including Levon Helm, Jaime Robbie Robertson, Garth Hudson, Rick Danko & Richard Manuel (The Band)
I had not heard this track that Ronnie did with Duane, just some history again folks.
(and great pics of Bo Diddley and his famous 'box' guitar with the Hawk at the 1:48 min mark)
Down In The Alley
Then an old Hawks pic with Robbie (Roberston) far right and inside him Garth Hudson (who told the story once that for his parents to allow him to play with The Band, as he was a fully trained classical musician, he had to lie to them and tell his folks he was only giving The Band music lessons )
