5.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT the edited DVD with talking and cuts
This is NOT the shortened DVD release with talking and editing - This is the full and complete show (91 minutes) in pristine quality. We have been waiting for this now for quite a long time. Now I can finally throw away my old VHS. Thanks - and of course 5 stars +

The Beacon 1992 show just our on CD is as good as you can ever imagine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is it the full show?
Years ago I saw the "Live at Great Woods" show on a "converted to UK" copy of the original US release. It was all music with no "talking heads". When I saw "Live at Great Woods" for sale on dvd a few years ago, I thought that I had struck lucky. I bought it, took it home, and popped it into the dvd player, forwarding it to "In Memory of...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!!, 2 April 2014
This review is from: The Allman Brothers Band: Live At Great Woods [DVD] (DVD)
The full version on DVD at last! I've had this concert for years on Laser Disc but that machine can't last forever and the DVD is superior anyway so was an essential purchase. The picture, although dark at times (as it always has been) is easily better than on LD and the sound is also excellent. There are some fabulous guitar pieces from Warren Haynes (Govt Mule and Warren Haynes Band) as well as good old Dickey Betts plus one of the most entertaining drum solos - it's actually a drum trio some of the time with two sets of drums from Butch Trucks and Jaimoe plus Marc Quinoñes on the congas etc. The late Allen Woody, who looks a complete heap but who cares, plays a spirited bass and Duane is his usual under-stated laid-back self on keyboards and vocals. If you like southern guitar-based rock then buy this now. Be careful not to order the older DVD version as that is severely mutilated and what's left is wrecked even more by interviews, sometimes mid song. Watch with the lights down to minimise the sometimes dark picture and crank up the volume! Oh, and buy the Beacon Theater concert from 2003 as well!

This review is from: The Allman Brothers Band: Live At Great Woods [DVD] (DVD)
Years ago I saw the "Live at Great Woods" show on a "converted to UK" copy of the original US release. It was all music with no "talking heads". When I saw "Live at Great Woods" for sale on dvd a few years ago, I thought that I had struck lucky. I bought it, took it home, and popped it into the dvd player, forwarding it to "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed". Shock horror, it was edited and, at one point, cut to Dickey Betts talking about the song. This sort of thing happened time and again. And certain tracks from the original video just weren't there. I checked the running times and discovered that the 55 minutes running time was considerably shorter than that of the original video. So a rock/jazz band renowned for lengthy improvisation had been trimmed and edited to fit into a sub 1 hour format, and some interviews had been shuffled in amongst what was left. Why the interviews could not have been a bonus feature on the dvd, I have no idea.
Don't buy this shortened dvd - it will drive you nuts with frustration! Instead, seek out the US video ( from the Allman Brothers own website) and find a way of viewing/converting it so that you can see the FULL concert without mindless editing and irritating interruptions.
Shame on Sony for putting out this travesty that is an insult to ABB fans AGAIN!.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's A Winner, 9 Feb 2014
This review is from: The Allman Brothers Band: Live At Great Woods [DVD] (DVD)
I received a pre release copy of this DVD and am happy to report it is a terrific show. It may be considered that by 1991 the Allman Brothers were all but over creatively but this performance proves otherwise and shows the passion and energy that Greg and the guys still had at this late stage for the tunes that made their name.
