Product Description

That good fortune and success can be short lived and transitory has been rarely illustrated better than by the awful circumstances that befell the Allman Brother Band in 1971 and 1972. The group s debut and sophomore albums, released in 1969 and 1970 respectively, had achieved relatively low sales outside of the southern states, but reviews were generally positive and American critics, particularly those writing for the by then almost biblical Rolling Stone, had come out in favour of the Allmans. But it was to be the marvellous live set recorded at New York s Fillmore East in March of 71 that would provide for the commercial breakthrough that turned the group from local curios into national treasures. The album, simply titled At Fillmore East, went on general release in July and both the critical reception and the sales were phenomenal. The road was where the Allmans had paid their dues and built up their core audience, and it was this same platform upon which the band and their managers knew they must now promote both band and record in the wake of their new found celebrity. So, back in New York a month after the release of Fillmore East, The Allman Brothers Band pulled up outside the city s A & R Studio on August 26th, to perform a show but one not just for the enjoyment of those fortunate enough to secure a ticket, but also for those within earshot of NYC s legendary radio station WPLJ FM, who were lined up to transmit proceedings live across the airwaves. The resultant broadcast is presented on this CD, available legitimately for the first time. A favourite of many tape and rarities collectors, the quality, dynamic performance and ambience encompassed herein all at once make for a quite staggering sonic experience, one that fans of this legendary act in its original line-up will relish alongside the group s other essential releases. Two months after this remarkable show went out, Brother Duane Allman, one of the world s finest ever rock and blues guitarists, was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident. Little more than another year on, in November of 1973, ABB bassist Berry Oakley sustained a similar fate in a separate crash, just three blocks from Duane s fatal accident spot. This release showcases one of the final appearances of the original Allmans line up and remains not just a delightful listening experience but additionally serves as a fitting tribute and historical document to the legacy of this iconic American rock group.

Wow a prime slice of southern rock/blues with the original Allman Brothers band Line up, what could go wrong ?
Well absolutely nothing this sounds great , Originally professionally recorded for WPLJ FM radio broadcast this must be from the original tapes rather than an off air broadcast as its just plain wonderful, though the release Is not authorised by the band according to their website notice boards, it should be so that you to Left field media for getting this out, by what ever means.
The Allman brothers band have always been a band at their best on the Road, so these 'live recordings make an excellent accompaniment to the official Duane era band CDs 'Fillmore East', 'Atlanta Pop' and 'Ludlow Garage' (also available on Amazon), as well as the bands own bootleg albums. The performance shows just how good the first line up was this show highlighting the tighter side of the band though Elizabeth reed is still 12 minutes long. While the set lists did not change much each night the arrangements and order of songs changed considerably each night.
As a side note the 'You don't Love me /Soul serenade' medley which appears on here is the same as that which originally appeared on the 'Dreams' box set.
Grey market release this may be but for Allman Brothers fans I would recommend snapping this up quickly as I doubt it will be in print for very long and if its starts attracting prices that the 'Fillmore East Feb 70' set issued by the 'Grateful Deads' in house label in the 90s is getting now then you may regret not getting this especially at the bargain price that this is on Amazon today(March 2012)

By freewheeling frankie TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Mar. 2012

I'm not quite sure how LFM get away with putting this stuff out, suffice to say that no US-based suppliers carry it. There clearly is some sort of loophole in EU or UK law regarding US recordings made specifically for radio broadcasts; it's interesting however that no one else appears to be taking such bold advantage of it. One can only speculate as to what legendary bootlegs of radio shows might get semi-legit release in the future.

Unlike some of LFM's releases (the Patti Smith one, for instance) this one sounds like it's been mastered from the original tapes and the sound is very bright and clear. They run through their standard set of the time, give or take Whipping Post, and interpolate Soul Serenade into the version of You Don't Love Me - rather pointlessly divided up into 4 tracks here. Duane Allman gives a very heartfelt spoken tribute to King Curtis before this track - Curtis had been murdered less than a fortnight before and Duane had played on at least one of his albums and attended his funeral, hence the inclusion of his signature tune Soul Serenade.

It's interesting to compare this set with the SUNY set from 24 days later. This one is of far superior sound quality but I would say quite a lot of SUNY, especially the shorter blues songs, shades it by virtue of a fiercer performance, as well as adding to the set list here with killer versions of Dreams and Blue Sky (but lacking Hot 'Lanta). However I prefer the version of You Don't Love Me here - it benefits from the inclusion of Soul Serenade and is less self indulgent. The two instrumentals (a relatively short In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed and a scorching Hot 'Lanta) are both extremely fine as well.

So in general, while some of the performances are merely very good, quite a lot of it's fabulous and at this price it's far too good to ignore. 4.5 stars.

Recorded a few weeks after the release of the seminal Fillmore East this performance compliments it wonderfully.It has the added bonus of being shorn of Whipping Post but has some fantastic versions of 'Statesboro Blues', 'Trouble No More', Don't Keep Me Wonderin', 'Done Somebody Wrong', 'Stormy Monday', 'One Way Out'. Duane Allman's slide is sublime - the phrasing,the energy and above all else his ability to construct soaring solos. The one extended track is 'You Don't Love Me' very similar to the Fillmore East version but subdivided on the packaging into 'You Don't Love Me - Soul Serenade - You Don't Love Me - Soul Serenade'.
Sound quality is excellent throughout although the packaging is minimalist - not a major issue as the performances are so good particularly the first seven tracks made up of the shorter songs.Buy with confidence!

Even if you have the double CD of the Fillmore concerts it's worthwhile adding this to your collection. The sound quality is great and the playing is superb, think of it as Fillmore condensed into one disk. Good value, buy it!

Hello. This is a scorcher from the Allmans and
I am a person who already has Live at the Fillmore.

The first few tracks are similar and I thought
I had made a boob in buying it but then the
music really takes off from track 5 One Way Out.
There is a version of Soul
Serenade which really should have become a proper
track for the group it has such a groove.
You Dont Love Me is the best track for guitar fiends.
Put this on and put your foot down. Bliss

How many years have passed, and this left us no mercifully brilliant guitarist Duane Allman? As I listen to his guitar solos, like I was floating on a magic carpet ride through the sky.
Everything is here described, so I can only encourage everyone to know this fantastic concert.
Good sound.
2012 Leftfield LFMCD522 / IFPI LD02 / 5J03
