Customer Review

on 4 November 2006
It was the fashion in the `70's to issue a live album and the Allman Brothers Band was no exception. However, the quality of some of these was extremely questionable and a significant amount did not do any justice to the artist. This was most certainly not the case with this album.

The sensational Allman Brothers Band - Live at the Fillmore album blasted onto the streets as their third album in the summer of 1971. It was and remains a sublime live performance highlighting the individual and collective quality of these fine musicians. One of my all time favourite tracks is "In the Memory of Elizabeth Reed", 13 minutes of sheer rock genius that builds to an astounding climax, fronted by Dickey Betts's wonderful guitar.
The distinctive sound of the Allman's, whether it is Greg Allman's superb organ, the amazing procession section or the unique guitar sound of Dickie Betts and of course the late and great Duane Allman is a joy to hear throughout the album. It is impossible to single out any weak tracks, there simply are none, the sheer power of the band coming over in every track.

The Allman's were really at their peak at the time of this album - bear in mind that by the time this album was released, Duane Allman had already played beside Eric Clapton on Layla and with Laura Nyro on her Christmas & the Beads of Sweat album.

One of, if not the greatest US rock band of their time, this album is truly magnificent and a must for any collection.
