Betts, Hall, Leavell And Trucks – Live At The Coffee Pot 1983 (2LP)
After the Allman Brothers split up in 1982, Dickey Betts formed a new band, recruiting Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie) as co-leader. Fellow ABB members Chuck Leavell, David Goldflies and Butch Trucks joined, forming the Betts, Hall, Leavell, and Trucks Band (aka BHLT).
Dickey Betts joined the Allman Brothers Band as second lead guitarist and singer in the late ’60s. In addition to matching bandleader Duane Allman lick for lick, Betts also wrote such memorable songs as “Revival” (number 92, 1971) and the instrumental tour de force “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.”
Jimmy Hall, former lead vocalist and harmonica player for Wet Willie, has a long and varied background as a performer; Hall co-founded Wet Willie in 1970; over the next ten years, Hall and the group toured with Aerosmith, the Allman Brothers Band, Grand Funk Railroad and the Grateful Dead.
In the who’s who of rock & roll, Chuck Leavell is a very big someone. His piano and keyboard playing has graced the albums and/or stages of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, the Allman Brothers Band, the Black Crowes, George Harrison, Blues Traveler, the Marshall Tucker Band, Hank Williams Jr. and a long list of others.
One of the founding members of The Allman Brothers Band, drummer Butch Trucks continued to record and perform with the Allman Brothers Band until they disbanded in 2014.
This live performance was recorded at The Coffee Pot, Roanoke, VA, in January of 1983.
