Digging the instrumentation here too, especially *these* horns with *this* steel guitar (and the rhythm section).

Scott Boyer of Cowboy (and more recently the Decoys) has died---bio and comments from Isbell, Hood etc here:

Live, Cowboy could be several things, incl. in there between Traffic and Little Feat---unlike their best known track, "Please Be With Me" w Duane Allman:

Thanks, hadn't heard that! This 'un is like something unaccountably left off Buffalo Springfield's Last Time Around, but also holds its own---


---from Cowboy - Boyer & Talton (Capricorn 1974) Scott Boyer & Tommy Talton With Chuck Leavell, Jaimoe, Randall Bramblett, Charley Hayward, Johnny Sandlin

if that doesn't show up here, it's "Everyone Has A Chance To Feel."

Live, Cowboy eventually could sound kind of in there between Traffic, Little Feat, little bit of early 70s Van Morrison---like Talton, Stewart & Sandlin kinda do here in the studio, on "Happy To Be Alive":


one album that I know of:
T.Talton, B.Stewart, J.Sandlin - Happy To Be Alive (CAPRICORN 1976) Johnny Sandlin - Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar Ed Freeman - Strings, Strings Arrangements, Conductor Bill Stewart - Rhythm Guitar, Drums, Percussion Bill Stewart - Drums Tommy Talton - Guitar, Vocals Guest Musicians:Bonnie Bramlett, Chuck Leavell, Dru Lombar, Joe English, Joe Walk, Scott Boyer, Steve Miller

Really trying for that 70s radio play, duh, and deservedly so.

A couple of Cowboy albums I didn't know about, the s/t and an expanded Cowboy: Boyer & Talton, were recently reissued, haven't heard 'em yet---also, here's Tommy Talton talking about the last show with Gregg, in 2016, and a good conversation they had, along with author's mentions of the Gregg albums T played on, ditto ABB LPs (bottom of this page has a link to review of Talton's latest solo alb):

Finally got to it--said this just now on Twitter:
Cowboy, Boyer & Talton (Expanded Edition): "It's a long short highway," amen. Bramblett, Leavell, Jaimoe, Sandlin, Hornsby, Bill Stewart, David Brown, Toy Caldwell, Dru Lombar, Charlie Hayward, Giggling Heap, Willietes, 2 bonus workouts from The Gregg Allman Tour. Earned stereo.

Anybody heard the 31rst of February album, the trio's 1968 s/t? Long ago heard the demo released in '72 as Duane & Greg Allman, backed by the trio, mainly remember Greg/Gregg bellerin' "Morning Dew."

Blackfoot rawks some serious mullet. "Good Morning" that opens up their 'Marauder' lp kinda has a groove that splits the difference between thrash and the Walbash Cannonball.

Never heard a whole Blackfoot album, but they had a decent cover of Spirit's "I Got A Line On You" in the late 70s, kind of a weird time for Southern Rock (post-Skynyrd-plane-crash, for one thing). He was mainly known as a guitarist early on, I think, but Van Zant talked him into drumming for Skyn---last I heard, he was still with the current line-up, singing and guitaring.
Just got this from Big Hassle publicists:

Gregg Allman
Laid Back Deluxe Edition and Gregg Allman Tour - August 30
Allman’s masterful debut solo album, Laid Back, will be remastered and released as an expanded two-disc deluxe edition and reissue on 180-gram vinyl. The deluxe edition features more than two dozen rarities including unreleased demos, outtakes, alternative and new mixes
xpost best Cowboy line-up backing him on the Tour LP. hope there's more involving them on this.
