"This was very, very early in the career of the Allman Brothers; the band had only recently been shaped into its new form. Obviously I made some photographs. At the time I didn't have a wide-angle lens which could capture the entire band in the studio in a single 35mm frame. So I did the next best thing: I shot one side of the studio then carefully turned the camera horizontally to shoot the other side of the studio. Through the magic of digitization I was able to meld the two frames into the single panoramic image you see here. From left to right: Berry Oakley, Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, Jaimoe Johanson, Gregg Allman and Phil Walden." -Baron Wolman
Settling in Haight-Ashbury in the 60's, Wolman was surrounded by Janis and the Grateful Dead in close-by digs. Wolman was soon accompanying journalist Jann Wenner to the now famous and genre-defining Mills College conference on rock music. Wenner happened to be the founder of Rolling Stone magazine. He liked Wolman's style, offered him a job and Wolman launched as the first official document-er of the new psychedelic age. Beginning with the magazine's opening issue, Wolman's photographs were windows on the parade of the different, the delightful and the doomed, and his pictures became the gold standard by which rock photography would be measured.
