Melissa by The Allman Brothers Band (1972)

Melissa by The Allman Brothers Band (1972)
"Melissa" is a song by American rock band the Allman Brothers Band, released in August 1972 as the second single from the group's third studio album, Eat a Peach. The song was written by vocalist Gregg Allman long before the founding of the group. It was first written in 1967, and two demo versions from those years exist, including a version cut by the 31st of February, a band that featured Butch Trucks, the Allman Brothers' later drummer. Allman sold the publishing rights later that year, but they were reacquired by manager Phil Walden in 1972.

Dixie Chicken by Little Feat (1973)

Dixie Chicken by Little Feat (1973)
Dixie Chicken is the third studio album by the American rock band Little Feat, released in 1973. The artwork for the front cover was by illustrator Neon Park and is a reference to a line from the album's third track, the song "Roll Um Easy".




The album is considered their landmark album with the title track as their signature song that helped further define the Little Feat sound. This was augmented by two additional members (guitarist Paul Barrere and percussionist Sam Clayton) added to make the more complete and familiar lineup that continued until their 1979 breakup following the death of Lowell George. Bassist Kenny Gradney was brought in to replace original bassist Roy Estrada, who had left after the band's second album Sailin' Shoes to join Captain Beefheart's Magic Band. This new lineup radically altered the band's sound, leaning toward New Orleans R&B/funk.

30 Days in the Hole by Gov't Mule (feat. Audley Freed) (2010)

30 Days in the Hole by Gov't Mule (feat. Audley Freed) (2010)
"30 Days in the Hole" is the seventh single by English rock group Humble Pie, from the band's 1972 Smokin' album. The song received moderate radio airplay at the time but failed to chart. However it gained a following on album oriented rock and classic rock radio formats and consequently it remains one of Humble Pie's best known songs.

In the years since, "30 Days" has been recorded by several groups, most notably Gov't Mule, Mr. Big, and Kick Axe, and is a live staple of Canadian rock band The Trews.
