The Allman Brothers Band are gearing up to release a new compilation, Peach Picks: Cream Of The Crop 2003, a collection of the best performances culled from six shows in July and August 2003 and dedicated to Gregg Allman, who passed away in 2017. Set for release this Friday, June 15th, via the band’s Peach Records (Orchard distribution), the collection includes 36 tracks recorded between July 25 and August 10, 2003, in Indianapolis; Pittsburgh; Darien Center, NY; Hartford; Charlotte; and Raleigh, with no song repeated. Peach Picks: Cream Of The Crop 2003 also features special guest collaborations on four songs with Susan Tedeschi, Karl Denson, and Branford Marsalis.The 2003 iteration of the Allman Brothers Band included founding members Gregg Allman, Jaimoe, and Butch Trucks, as well as guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes, percussionist Marc Quiñones, bassist Oteil Burbridge, and guitarist Derek Trucks—the same lineup that lasted through the band’s final run in 2014, marking the band’s longest-running lineup and most consistent in its live performances. According to a press release, “The band had just released their first album in 10 years, the Grammy-nominated Hittin’ The Note and were in top shape.”Their most recent form of promotion is the release of a rare version of the Warren Haynes/Gregg Allman penned ballad “Desdemona” from the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien Center, New York on 8/02/03. Take a listen below:“It was a really good time period for the band,” Haynes, who is the Supervising Producer of the Peach Picks, told Billboard. “We had all the new material and we were reinventing a lot of old material and the band was on a high note at that point, so it just seemed like a good thing to go back and make [the recordings] available to folks.”“It’s really interesting to hear how energized the band was at that point in time,” Haynes continued. “Everybody was so psyched to make a new record and so proud of the record we had just made it just seemed like the band was really hitting its stride. Not having heard any of the stuff in a long time, when I went back to start listening to it. It was just really refreshing to get a snapshot of where the band was at that moment.”“It was a fresh outlook, or even a fresher outlook on the band’s legacy and what it meant for the band to still be touring and still be vibrant and still be breaking new ground and pushing itself,” Haynes recalled. “We felt that this is a band that’s been non-stop touring since the reforming in ’89, so we have to keep reinventing it. It became more and more important to us to just shake things up and do things as differently as possible on a nightly, weekly, monthly, yearly basis, and the entire organization — band, management and everybody — was down with that.”Haynes also told Billboard that “there’s talk” about releasing similar compilations from other eras of old vaults as well. “We’ll see where it all goes,” he said in the interview. “I’m interested to see some of the different time periods, but  was kind of a unique opportunity, I think.”Continuing the tradition of providing quality content for fans, Peach Picks: Cream Of The Crop 2003 will be available in an array of configurations. The full curated four-CD set will be offered, both physically and digitally. Each of the full six concerts will also be available for completists, and this marks the first time any of this music has been made available digitally. Recorded for the then-nascent “Instant Live” CD series (fans picked up copies of the concert immediately after the show as they were being burned on CD), these shows capture the group at full throttle.Cream Of The Crop 2003 tracklist:Disc One1) Don’t Want You No More2) It’s Not My Cross To Bear3) Black Hearted Woman4) Rocking Horse5) Hot ‘Lanta6) Old Before My Time7) Come And Go Blues8) Woman Across The River9) Desdemona10) The High Cost Of Low Living11) Hoochie Coochie Man12) RevivalDisc Two1) Trouble No More2) Midnight Rider3) You Don’t Love Me4) Who To Believe5) Stormy Monday6) Good Morning Little Schoolgirl7) In Memory Of Elizabeth ReedDisc Three1) Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More2) Worried Down With The Blues3) Statesboro Blues4) Stand Back5) Melissa6) Mountain Jam7) LaylaDisc Four1) Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’2) Done Somebody Wrong3) Gambler’s Roll4) Soulshine5) Who’s Been Talking6) Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright7) Wasted Words8) Dreams9) Whipping Post10) One Way OutView All Tracks
Supreme Court hands down Bar rules opinion Mark D. Killian Managing Editor The Supreme Court recently amended Bar rules to include a statement that a disciplinary resignation is equivalent to disbarment and to provide a limited exemption from reporting misconduct found by staff lawyers with the Bar Law Office Management Assistance Service.Acting on the Bar’s annual rules package — which was filed in February 2000 — the court also adopted a new rule regarding non-Florida lawyers appearing in Florida courts, but remanded for further study a proposal on how to deal with non-Florida lawyers engaged in mediation or arbitration within the state. Case No. SC00-273.The court said all but one comment filed in response to the rules package addressed a proposed amendment which would have eliminated the deferral of the Basic Skills Course Requirement for government attorneys. After reviewing the comments opposing that amendment, the Bar withdrew the proposal in order to allow for discussion with the opponents to that amendment.The remaining substantive proposed changes include amendment to or the creation of the following rules, bylaws and subchapters: Rule 1-3.2 (Membership Classifications); Rule 1-3.5 (Retirement); Rule 1-3.7 (Reinstatement to Membership); new Rule 1-3.10 (Appearances by Non-Florida Lawyers); Rule 1-7.3 (Membership Fees); Subchapter 2-1 (Seal, Emblems, and Publicity Symbols); Bylaw 2-1.2 (Publicity Symbol); Bylaw 2-1.3 (Usage); Bylaw 2-7.3 (Creation of Sections and Divisions); Rule 3-5.1 (Types of Discipline; Generally); Rule 3-7.1 (Confidentiality); Rule 3-7.4 (Grievance Committee Procedures); Rule 3-7.10 (Reinstatement and Readmission Procedures); Rule 3-7.12 (Disciplinary Resignation from The Florida Bar); Rule 4-1.5 (Fees for Legal Services); Rule 4-8.3 (Reporting Professional Misconduct); Rule 4-8.4 (Misconduct); Rule 6-3.2 (Certification Committees); new Rule 6-3.7 (Emeritus Specialist Status); Rule 6-3.10 (Fees); Rule 6-10.3 (Minimum Continuing Legal Education Standards); Rule 6-12.1 (Basic Skills Course Requirement); Rule 6-12.2 (Administration); Rule 6-12.3 (Basic Skills Course Standards); new Rule 6-12.3 (Requirement); new Rule 6-12.4 (Deferment and Exemption); Rule 6-12.4 (Noncompliance and Sanctions); Rule 10-4.1 (UPL Circuit Committees; Generally); Rule 10-7.2 (Proceedings for Indirect Criminal Contempt); and Rule 10-9.1 (Procedures for Issuance of Advisory Opinions on UPL). The full text of the opinion can be found online at www.flcourts.org.The court adopted new Rule 1-3.10 (Appearances by Non-Florida Lawyers). This rule contains provisions formerly found in subdivision (a) of Rule 1-3.2, plus new provisions. The court said the new rule is similar to recently adopted Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.061, concerning foreign attorneys. Consistent with modifications to proposed Rule 2.061, the court modified Rule 1-3.10 to remove references to the term “pro hac vice.” Subdivision (a)(2) of Rule 1-3.10 prohibits “a general practice before Florida courts” which is considered “more than 3 appearances within a 365-day period in separate and unrelated representations.” Subdivisions (a)(3) and (a)(4) specifically prohibit appearances by inactive, suspended, or former members of The Florida Bar, or those sanctioned during prior appearance under the rule. Subdivision (b) prescribes the content of a verified motion filed under the rule.The court also added language to subdivision (b)(4), which clarifies that the only requests to be admitted to practice which must be disclosed in the verified motion are those made to a Florida court.“We reject the Bar’s recommendation to amend Rule 3-4.1 at this time,” the court said. “Under this proposed amendment, non-Florida lawyers would be placed on the same footing as a member of The Florida Bar by being subject to the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, including the Rules of Professional Conduct, for any unethical conduct that might occur during the course of the representation.”The court said because it is not clear how the conduct of non-Florida lawyers who are appearing in mediation or arbitration in Florida without being admitted under Bar rules can be regulated by the court, the justices remanded the matter to the Bar for further consideration.The court, however, adopted the Bar’s proposed amendments to Rules 3-7.12 and 3-5.1(j) so as to include the following language:“Disciplinary resignation is the functional equivalent of disbarment in that both sanctions terminate the license and privilege to practice law and both require readmission to practice under the Rules of the Supreme Court Relating to Admissions to the Bar.”The court also added language to Rule 3-5.1(f) that holds, “Disbarment is the presumed sanction for lawyers found guilty of theft from a lawyer’s trust account or special trust fund received or disbursed by a lawyer as guardian, personal representative, receiver, or in a similar capacity such as a trustee under a specific trust document. A respondent found guilty of such theft shall have the opportunity to offer competent, substantial evidence to rebut the presumption that disbarment is appropriate.”The court also amended Rule 4-8.3 (Reporting Professional Misconduct) to provide a limited exception for the Bar’s Law Office Management Assistance Service. The exception states that a lawyer acting on behalf of LOMAS “shall not have an obligation to disclose knowledge of the conduct of another member of The Florida Bar that raises a substantial question as to the other lawyer’s fitness to practice, if the lawyer employed by or acting on behalf of LOMAS acquired the knowledge while engaged in a LOMAS review of the other lawyer’s practice.” If the LOMAS review is conducted as a part of a disciplinary sanction, however, the limitation is not applicable and the LOMAS lawyer is required to report the finding.The court also created new Rule 6-3.7 to create an emeritus specialist status to recognize the contribution of a Board Certified Lawyer in the advancement of the speciality area through related career activities that do not constitute the actual practice of law.The rule states that to seek emeritus specialist status the lawyer shall:• Be currently board certified by The Florida Bar.• Be a member of The Florida Bar in good standing.• No longer be engaged in the practice of law.• Otherwise comply with the applicable rules and policies governing emeritus specialist status.

Ahead of the first Group of 20 Summit to be hosted virtually on Thursday evening, Indonesia called on member countries to create better access to drugs and medical equipment while also protecting vulnerable groups from a possible pandemic-induced global recession.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo is still expected to attend the teleconference, hosted remotely by G20 chairman Saudi Arabia and led by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, although he is still grieving over the passing of his mother on Wednesday. Leaders from the United States, Russia, China and France are also expected to take part in the remote crisis talks.The President is to be accompanied by Finance Minister Sri Mulyani and Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi, according to the Office of the Coordinating Economic Affairs Minister. Another point Indonesia was prioritizing for the G20 statement was to support and ensure the safety of medical personnel in accordance with World Health Organization standards, urging ease of access to medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE).Indonesia, among many other countries around the world, has been overwhelmed by a lack of PPE, underscored by President Jokowi’s statement that 180 countries were fending off one another to get the equipment.Rizal said the government also raised the issue of affordability and availability of vaccines and other medical supplies.“In this case, Indonesia requests that each G20 country will be able to [better] facilitate trade and mobility of drugs and other medical needs, including through the relaxation of export-import procedures,” he said.The global Doctors Without Borders (MSF) previously urged for supplies to be shared across borders according to where the needs were the greatest.“This needs to start with states in Europe sharing their supplies with Italy. It will soon need to extend to other regions that will be hit by this pandemic and whose ability to cope is already compromised,” MSF analysis department director Jonathan Whittall said in a statement on Thursday.Indonesia pointed out, however, that all forms of global financial contributions must still refer to national conditions and priorities. “This is in view of differences in domestic needs and priorities of each affected country to mobilize all available resources,” Rizal said.Leaders of the G20 countries are also being called on to commit to creating stronger cooperation to prevent a deeper global economic recession as a result of a prolonged pandemic.The death toll from the virus, which emerged in China late last year, rose past 21,000, with the number of infections globally closing in on half a million, according to official tallies. An estimated 3 million people have also been forced into lockdown.Indonesia has supported a proposal from Saudi Arabia to include a social safety net as one of the efforts to protect the poor in the face of COVID-19, especially among developing countries. It also approved Japan’s proposal to include a paragraph in which G20 leaders support the Japanese government’s announcement to delay the 2020 Olympics as a result of the outbreak.Topics : Acting as Indonesia’s G20 sherpa, the deputy chief for international economic cooperation at the Office of the Coordinating Minister, Rizal Affandi Lukman, attended on Wednesday an online teleconference for drafters of a G20 leaders’ statement on COVID-19.Rizal said that the leaders’ statement must recommend concrete and actionable steps for handling COVID-19, stressing that any statement would only be beneficial if each G20 member country was committed to working together to contain the pandemic.“On this occasion, Indonesia delivered a number of main points that were recommended to be part of the leaders’ statement. First, increasing social protection for vulnerable groups including the elderly, micro, small and medium enterprises and low-wage workers,” Rizal said in a statement received on Thursday.According to the Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises Ministry, Indonesia’s small and medium enterprises (SMEs) account for 99.9 percent of total businesses, employ up to 97 percent of the total workforce and contribute more than 60 percent of the country’s gross domestic product.

Image via: GIS NewsDominica’s Environmental Health Department said it will once again seek to enforce the country’s Litter Act which has been on the books for many years. Chief Environmental Officer Anthony Scotland said efforts to enforce the Act have not met the expectation over the years.The Environmental Coordinating Unit has now embarked upon a sensitization and education drive in an effort to enforce the act.“From last week, we have been training all the officers under the Act. We had a session with about 60 people from National Pest, Solid Waste, all the clerks and the chairman of village councils. Every police officer, road superintendent can help authorize the Act. The Act goes authorization to at least nine people,” he said.Meantime bus drivers who do not provide bins on public transport have been identified as perpetrators of the Act.“The Act tells you that all public transport should have on board their bins. Also dumpers do not cover their aggregate when traversing the roads. We are not going to be going over and over with that. It’s time to act. Otherwise we will just be going around in circles’,” Scotland said.He said the minister can also appoint on his discretion who should be added to the list.Dominica Vibes News
