Kirk West and the Allman Brothers archive

A couple years ago I produced a short documentary about music archives and archivists. The following segment, which focuses on Kirk West and the Allman Brothers archive in Macon, was the first part of that film.

Thanks to Hibbotte for major production assistance with this piece.

      I don’t feel totally comfortable posting the other two segments of the music archive documentary I produced. One involves a giant warehouse facility where print publicity material for the major labels is stored, and I didn’t get permission from the labels to show the material and how it’s organized. The other segment focuses on the idiosyncratic record collection of someone in Atlanta. His collection is located at his house, and I didn’t want to inspire anyone to visit the house and make off with any of the valuable records. I can pass along this video I produced for the online journal Southern Spaces about Gwen Patton and her grassroots Civil Rights archive at at Trenholm State Technical College: http://www.southernspaces.org/contents/2004/patton/1a.htm

    Hi Steve,

    I’ve just been enjoying revisiting your blog and realised I never replied to say thanks for the link! The video’s of Gwen Patton were really inspirational.
