Duane & Greg Allman is the second studio album by the rock and roll band The 31st of February, recorded at TK Studios, Hialeah, Florida in September 1968. The planned album was never completed as the band broke up shortly afterwards, and the demo recordings remained unreleased until Bold Records released this album in May 1972. It was then attributed to Duane and Gregg Allman — with name mis-spelled 'Greg'. The brothers had in the mean time established themselves in The Allman Brothers Band along with Butch Trucks, original drummer of The 31st of February.
In 1970, during his stint with the short-lived Derek and the Dominos, Duane Allman re-recorded "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" for their Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs album. Two years later The Allman Brothers Band re-recorded "Melissa" for the 1972 album Eat a Peach. According to Gregg Allman's 2013 autobiography My Cross to Bear, Allman wrote "God Rest His Soul" as a tribute to Martin Luther King. He sold producer Steve Alaimo the rights to "God Rest His Soul" and "Melissa" for $600.
