There’s a very nice weather report today where I live, so I couldn’t resist beginning the day with this classic video of the Allman Brothers from 1991, performing “Blue Sky.” I first saw the Brothers in 1970, when they were still a largely provincial act, and they’ve had their ups and downs, but this performance is way up there. Enjoy.
