Biography

The Allman Joys was an early band with Duane and Gregg Allman fronting. It was originally the Escorts, but it eventually evolved into the Allman Joys. Duane Allman quit highschool to focus his days at home practicing guitar. They auditioned for Bob Dylan’s producer, Bob Johnston, at Columbia Records, backing a girl trio called The Sandpipers [1]. In true Beatles-esque style, Johnston was more interested in the girls… Eventually, they went on to form Hour Glass and then the Allman Brothers Band.

One of the Allman Joys’ sides, “Spoonful,” was released locally and sold well. But Loudermilk had already decided to concentrate on song writing, so he brought the group to Buddy Killen, head of Dial Records. Killen thought the group was quite good, so he had John Hurley take them into the studio to record more tunes
