Please Call Home: The Big House Years, directed by road manager and renowned photographer Kirk West, tells the story of the early days of Allman Brothers Band and their music as it was evolving and solidified in The Big House.
Seamlessly woven with rare, archival, and contemporary footage along with interviews with band members and others in their closely knit circle, the film delivers access and insight into the factors that nurtured the bonding of the original lineup, their families and friends, and provides an intimate picture of a key period in the group’s evolution and ultimately, the unity at the heart of the Allman Brothers Band’s music.
