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.

History[edit]

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."
