Little Feat and the Allman Brothers were fine suggestions. I checked

out both web sites.

Little Feat performed the song "Oh Atlanta" on three records, but

"Hotlanta" is not in the lyrics. Pretty close, though:

Well you can drop me off at Peachtree

I got to feel that Georgia sun

And women there in Atlanta

They make you awfully glad you come.

THE ALLMAN BROTHER BAND AT FILLMORE EAST has a song called "Hot 'Lanta."

The song was recorded March 12-13, 1971.

This is the earliest "Hotlanta" so far.

I also wrote to the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau (

for further information. If they're like the New York Convention & Visitors

Bureau, they'll never respond.

The Fillmore East was a legendary rock & roll venue in New York City.

After a long fight against real estate developers, the developers won. The

Fillmore East has been or will be destroyed.
