Duane & Greg Allman is an album credited to Duane and Gregg Allman, released by Bold Records in May 1972. The release is essentially an album-length demo recording of the 31st of February, a Tallahassee-based folk rock band featuring drummer Butch Trucks, bassist David Brown, and guitarist Scott Boyer. The 31st of February formed in 1965 and released their first, self-titled album in 1968.
This second recording, according to Trucks, was intended to be their second album. It features Duane Allman on guitar and Gregg Allman on vocals. The two had been performing with the 31st of February for several months. It was recorded at TK Studios in the Miami suburb of Hialeah, Florida in September 1968. Steve Alaimo engineered the sessions and later claimed producer's credit.
The album is notable for the first recording of "Melissa", which was later re-recorded with the Allman Brothers Band. Bold Records released the opening track "Morning Dew" as a single in 1972, backed with "I'll Change for You". Neither the single nor the album made it into the record charts.
The album was re-released several times after 1972 on various record companies and with varying cover art in various countries, including Germany and Japan. This is it's first time on CD.
