A & R Studios : New York, 26th August, 1971 ~ Allman Brothers Band
I think better fidelity than the Fillmore shows,and although all reviews were positive,I don't believe they go far enough...this is outstandingly good!Even if there were cause for complaint,which there is not,it's an important historical document,to wit Duane's last performance,so being as good as it is and this fact make this a real(very overused term)essential purchase.I bought mine from an online retailer who do pay their taxes,however,and would hope you'd search around and find one of these too.

The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings ~ Allman Brothers Band
I've been a fan since this first came to my notice,about 33 years ago,and for me,this is the greatest amalgam of Jazz,Rock,and Blues that ever there was.The Allmans play it all so well,and this is what music should be,but hardly ever is.The Dead came close,but when they fooled with country,I lost interest,because they didn't do it half as well as Dickie Betts did,but until then were excellent...but no,repeat no live album competes with these lads at the Fillmore,except for(and it's no longer currently available)Van the Man's Too Late to Stop Now,and Live Dead(which now sounds a tad "flat" to me,lacking a bit of the 3D sound I always remembered from the old days).
I'm glad I… Read more
