S.U.N.Y. at Stonybrook: Stonybrook, NY 9/19/71 (titled with slightly different variations in the album packaging) is an archival live album released in 2003 and self-distributed by the Allman Brothers Band.


The album records performances from two shows at the State University of New York at Stony Brook Gym on September 19, 1971.

Duane Allman's role as bandleader is multiply evident: he signed contract for the concert included in the album's packaging, he announces the songs, and barks orders at the sound crew, sometimes in mid-song.

The Allman Brothers' website suggests the evening's stand-out performances were "Blue Sky", the only live version featuring Duane released by the band, and "Dreams", a showcase for his flatpicking and slide guitar skills.

An advisory in the liner notes states, "The live mix evolved from the first song & continued to improve as the set progressed. Great care was taken to improve the sonic quality of the first few tracks to achieve a pleasing audio experience."
