5.0 out of 5 stars Allmans in 1992, 15 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992 (Audio CD)
A superb performance from two shows(March 10 and 11)at the Beacon Theatre.This band had been together for over 3 years and were really tight.Dickey Betts had a guitar partner in Warren Haynes who could match his chops,Gregg Allman was singing and playing better than ever and the powerhouse rhythm section of Butch Trucks,Jaimoe and Allen Woody gave the band an added depth not found since 1971.By now they had ditched second keyboard player Johnny Neel and added percussionist Mark Quinoles and this septet played a mixture of old songs plus material from their two new studio releases.
With guitars set to growl the band blazed through song ranging from Statesboro Blues through Nobody Knows and coupled with a short acoustic set in the middle finished with a rousing Whipping Post.
I believe Warren Haynes is responsible for this release and I hope he will put out some more of these vintage shows in the future.

Another brilliant live event captured for posterity. There are few bands that can match the Allman Brothers Band when it comes to a live performance - listen to this and you'll soon know why.

Not quite up to the standard of 'Live at the Fillmore' but a pretty decent album, and well worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars Son of 'Live at Fillmore East' 21 years on and truly righteous. Just buy it!, 12 Mar 2014

This review is from: Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992 (Audio CD)
Where to start? Anyone who has the 'An evening with... ' 1st/2nd sets will be familiar with the standard of musicianship therein. This double cd continues in that vein, but in a more flowing setting which encapsulates the full concert experience, recorded and edited over two consecutive nights 10th & 11th March 1992. 130 minutes of pure quality [60 + 70 minutes]. A brief build up... after deciding to reform in 1989, the four remaining members, Greg, Dickey, Jaimoe and Butch roped in Warren Haynes [gtrs] and Allen Woody [bs] later to be two thirds of Gov't Mule, Marc Quinones [percussion] and occasionally old buddy Thom Doucette [harp]. They hit the road, honing their unique talent and building up a fanatic fanbase across all ages, new and old. Searching for a venue to accomodate a 10-night run of concerts in New York 1992, they decided that the Beacon Theatre fitted most closely to the spirit of the Fillmore East. Thus the legend was [re]born.
Now to the concert.
A teasing intro into Statesboro Blues, followed by a jaunty You Don't Love Me. A storming End Of The Line, then surely a worthy companion to Jessica in the song Blue Sky. Once more the band flex their considerable muscle in Nobody Knows then a low down Low Down Dirty Mean.
Greg, Dickey, Warren and Allen then perform three acoustic songs to close out the first cd. Seven Turns, Midnight Rider and Come on in My Kitchen, the harmonies and guitar interplay rip your heart out. [The acoustic part of the set became a regular feature from 1990]
The second cd opens with a 4 minute display of Warren's virtuosity before ripping into Hoochie Coochie Man with Warren on snarling vocals. An absolutely joyous Jessica followed by a soulfull Get on With Your Life leads into a superb 21-minute Liz Reed followed by Revival which helps to calm things down a bit. Dreams and crowd favourite Whipping Post complete the set, leaving the audience and listener stunned by the sheer quality and virtuosity of the original [American] Peoples' Band. If, like me, you love the Allmans, or you are just curious to see what all the fuss is about, then this is one of the most important albums you will own, showing how a band can come in out of the wilderness to take the world by storm again.
Please buy this album and who knows, maybe it will open the floodgates for lots more of their earlier concerts to see the light of day.

Got quite a lot of Allman's music now and this is one of the best; a good collection of their numbers done as expected, well worth having!

5.0 out of 5 stars Single cd versus double cd, 2 Mar 2014
This review is from: Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992 (Audio CD)
As a fan of The Allman Brothers Band I'ld like to know the differences between the cheap double cd and the expensive single cd. I have not ordered it yet but to me it could make a difference which one I will buy. Kind regards, Wietze Landheer
