The Allman Brothers Band moved to Macon, Georgia, and forged a strong brotherhood, spending countless hours rehearsing, consuming psychedelic drugs, and hanging out in Rose Hill Cemetery, where they would write songs and more—”I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have my way with a lady or two down there”, said Allman. In addition to Gregg, the band included Duane and Dickey Betts on guitar, Berry Oakley on bass, and Jaimoe and Butch Trucks on drums. The group remade blues numbers like “Trouble No More” and “One Way Out“, in addition to improvising jams. Gregg, who had struggled to write in the past, became the band’s main songwriter, composing songs such as “Whipping Post” and “Midnight Rider”. The group’s self-titled debut album was released in November 1969 through Atco and Capricorn Records, but suffered from poor sales. The band played continuously in 1970, performing over 300 dates on the road, which contributed to a larger following. Their second record, Idlewild South, was issued in September 1970, and also received a muted commercial response.
