Whole album is up on NPR First Listen today:

Thanks, the insight from the associated article is good too:

Quote
Allman ends the album with Jackson Browne's ode to a fallen friend, "Song for Adam," an overt evocation of his late brother Duane, who died from a motorcycle crash in 1971 as the Allman Brothers Band was approaching the peak of its popularity. Duane was Gregg's hero, and it's impossible to overstate the impact his passing had on his little brother. And in the final verse of this closing cut, Allman reportedly became too overcome with emotion to sing the lyrics: "When I stood myself behind, I never felt so strong / Still it seems he stopped singing in the middle of his song."

Don Was never asked Allman to complete that verse. Perhaps fate intervened. Or perhaps the veteran producer heard something in that final silence that words could never say.

I love that they took little solos that were bits and pieces of the Fillmore East solos and round robin'd a bit.  Not sure how much they improvised but the conductor coming in to hit the downbeat of the final build-up part indicates that they did a bit.

Is it just me or does anyone else find that violinist who takes the last part extremely hot?

I think in this context you can call them fiddle players. I mean, I don't know.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

I always equate fiddle to bluegrass or Celtic music.
When I think of stringed arrangements like this, I always went with violin.
