Product Description

Recorded live at American University on Sunday December 13,1970,at 7:30 and 10:30p.m.(The CD is drawn from both shows,with tracks one through five from the second set and You Don't Love Me and Whippin Post from the first.)The Allmans were at a crucial stage in their development on that December night,having just returned from shows at the Fillmore East in New York on a tour promoting their second album,Idlewild South.Three months hence, they would return to the Fillmore East and perform the show captured on their epochal Live at Fillmore East album.So,the band playing at American University is near to the best the group could be.Don't Keep Me Wonderin and Leave My Blues at Home had just appeared on Idlewild South, and this release marks the first live versions of them to be released by the Allmans.The playing is fierce,especially the interaction of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, with a solid 20-plus-minute version of Whippin Post .

First in the series of Allman Brothers Brand, and one of only two starring Duane Allman. The quality of the recording is excellent and quite naturally so is the bands performance. The only glitch is that the tape ran out 5.03 into a superb rendition of Stormy Monday - half way through Duane's solo! This appears to be the first show of the day so why a later Stormy Monday tape could not be used is a pity.
On the whole this is 60 minutes of a quite excellent concert and essential for a fan of Duane Allman.

Hard to Dislike an Early ABB Concert 11 Jan. 2006
By Todd and In Charge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I agree completely with the prior reviewer's comments regarding the sonics and Greg's too-loud vocals. Is this an essential early ABB live release? No way. Are there better concert releases available? Definitely.

That said, I'm still glad I picked this one up and here's why: the boys seem to be having a lot of fun, very relaxed and casual. Duane's guitar was rocking that night, the interplay between the guitars and organ on "Stormy Monday" is a stand-out, and it's a just plain very enjoyable listen, despite the nits about the sound quality. I put this one on recently as I drove out on I-95 at sunset and enjoyed every second of it, even the 25 minute warhorse "Whipping Post." And that's saying a lot for that last one.

Want to hear Duane, get this cd 21 Jan. 2006
By anon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
1st, The Allman Brothers at Fillmore East release is probably the greatest rock live release ever so it is not to be compared against. That cd is extraordinary. It was great back in 1971 and is still great today. The sound quality of American University is good. But, the sound quality should not detract from what is going on with the music. We are able to listen to the Allman Brothers with Duane Allman.

We are lucky to have a release like this with Duane Allman. I hope we get more from the Bros.

I am listening to the cd for the 3rd time and let me tell you, it is the Allman Brothers. Don't Keep Me Wondering. Trouble no More. It is all there. Greg might be a little loud but he sounds great. Duane is screamin along with Dickey. The drums are banging and the blues a playin. Get this cd if you like the Allman Brothers.

FINDING A LOVE LETTER FROM LONG AGO 9 Aug. 2006
By Crabby Apple Mick Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With this album, we have all the makings of an arc that tracks the Allman Brothers Band monumental THE ALLMAN BROTHERS AT FILLMORE EAST. Beginning with LIVE AT LUDLOW GARAGE through LIVE AT THE ATLANTA INTERNATIONAL POP FESTIVAL and now AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 12/13/70 the listener can see a steady development in the band's chops and abilities that lead up to FILLMORE. Naturally, the Allman Brothers didn't just spring out of Flannery O'Connor's head whole and complete; but to many in the rock community that's how it appeared as FILLMORE landed on their turntables.

Most of us have little interest in how such and such band or song came to be. That understood this album provides another chances (excuse?) to listen to Duane Allman in his element once more. Reading the liner notes, a little bit of modern electronic wizardry was necessary to bring this album up to a presentable form. In that regard, the sound quality is surprisingly good considering the age of the original sources. On the down side, due to running out of recording tape on the reel, "Stormy Monday" is here in a much abbreviated form in which we miss out on Allman's guitar soloing on the balance of the song. now AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 12/13/70 is also shorter than previous offerings of early Allman Brothers live recordings.

Still the intensity and liveliness makes this a compelling document of a band we really only got to know briefly before Duane Allman's death. This is no substitute for THE ALLMAN BROTHERS AT FILLMORE EAST or EAT A PEACH. But for most of who love this band it is like finding a love letter from long ago you didn't even know you got.

Questionable release 3 Aug. 2005
By RKL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Stick with 'The Fillmore Concerts'. This from the vaults release is interesting but hardly a must-have. It's raw, gritty and sloppy in places and Gregg's vocals are way too loud. But Duane is on it and that's always reason to listen. The venue is odd and the mix even odder as explained in the liner notes. 7.5 IPS STEREO MASTER, yikes! One half soundboard the other half ambience mike, sheesh. It sounds exactly what is was: the band recorded in a gymnasium. Of course the disc has been 'normalised' and the high end is sorely lacking and the vocals may blow you out of the room they are so loud. The digital restoration must have been a nightmare. The songs are good choices but sound like practice runs for the Fillmore shows, some guitar solos sound distant thanks to the mix. I suppose the hard-core fan will want this but for serious fans, they may want to pass. 7 tracks/60.26.

"Trouble No More" finding more live Duane! 29 Jun. 2007
By Craig Fenton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As the author of the Jefferson Airplane book "Take Me To A Circus Tent" and a former radio disc-jockey, I am often asked to write and or discuss various recordings from the 60's and 70's.

As so often happens, before a review is written about the music a warning label must be in place about the sound quality for those that would let history pass by because of a vocal mix or the sometime docile sound of a guitar. Endless treasures from the vaults are missing from musical snobs collections because the recording didn't have the luxury of $123,678,190 digital equipment.

"American University 12/13/70" should be a welcome addition to any fan of the Duane period. How many times have we begged for more products with his name? The record company finds a terrific gig from Washington, D.C. and all we need to say is "Thank you."

When the opening notes of "Statesboro Blues" hit or the classic riff of "Trouble No More" sends shivers down your spine you will circumvent any worry if sound quality can deter your enjoyment. "Don't Keep Me Wonderin" is pure rock and roll up close and personal. "Leave My Blues At Home" is Allman magic. The line-up with Duane and Dickie could hold our attention for a marathon or floor us with explosive blues in under seven minutes. "Stormy Monday" could play on forever. Gregg's voice has made this one of the definitive covers of the T-Bone Walker tune.

The gold metal winner on this disc may be the sixteen minutes of "You Don't Love Me." The tastefully constructed representation of the William Cobbs tune needs several listenings to totally encompass the nuances. Most bands extend a song and you head for the first soft drink vendor in sight. The Allman's improvise and we are glued to the speakers.

If the disc had to end the choice of over twenty minutes of "Whipping Post" will satisfy your hunger for more Duane and Dickie magical interplay.

Duane was not on this earth long enough for us to be anything but grateful for any sound coming from his six string.

Enjoy the music and be well,
Craig Fenton
