Slideshow: Rare, Vintage Allman Brothers Band Photos

In our May 2010 Jazz Fest Bible issue, Randy Savoie reports on the illuminating memories photographer Sidney Smith has of his time as a teenager photographing the Allman Brothers Band. There are some crazy anecdotes in that story, but we also wanted to pass along some more great photographs from Smith that didn’t make it into the print edition. Below are some more photos Smith took of the Allman Brothers Band in the early 1970s, including one shot of the band performing right here in New Orleans, at the now-defunct music club The Warehouse (which Savoie also profiled for OffBeat earlier this year).
