40th Anniversary joy.
on 22 May 2014
In 2009 the Allmans Beacon run was a tribute to Duane Allman and all of the shows had guest appearances from artists associated with Duane.However on the 26th of March,the band sans guests played their first two albums in their entirety and this dvd is the result.Some people have complained about the picture quality and compressed audio,but to me the picture is crystal clear and I found the sound on 5.1 to be perfect with excellent guitar separation(On 2.0 stereo the sound is compressed and low so swich to 5.1 through the menu on your dvd).
Performance wise this is a band at its improvisational peak and the versions here are far removed from those on Fillmore East.The instrumental skill is astonishing and Gregg is singing and playing as well as ever.One note of caution-this is a REGION 1 DVD so make sure you have an appropriate multi-region player.
