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Allmans line up and remains not just a delightful listening experience but additionally serves as a fitting tribute and historical document to the legacy of this iconic American rock group.

I must start by saying that I am a huge fan of this great band. And as such, I am so delighted that this release is out officially as previous bootlegs have lacked quality. The "You Don't Love Me/Soul Seranade" tribute to the then-late King Curtis stands as one of the most touching and powerful pieces of musical spontenaety ever heard. I also would say that this recording shows Dickey Betts firing off some of his tightest and grittiest solos that I have yet heard. This is indespensible to any fan of the ABB.

I know Duane Allman died way to soon at 24yrs but they must have recorded material like this smewhere in the vaults. I really liked this because Duane and Dickeys guitar tone really stands out and the way they blend in soul serenade is enough to make me cry. I would sell my house if I had to in order to buy early Allman recordings with Duane's guitar work. MY FAVORITE BAND PERIOD.

HASH(0x9a2e0ea0) out of 5 stars A Revelation March 30 2012
By rhythm 55 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a "gray area" release from the folks at Left Field Media,recorded before a small (and very lucky) audience on August 26th,1971 at A & R Studios in N.Y. and broadcast by WPLJ-FM. The sound quality was a concern for me but this sounds as if they had access to the original tape as opposed to just capturing the FM broadcast. Its every bit as good as any of their (legitimate) live releases and having a recording this good with Duane is a revelation. Duane (and the whole band for that matter)are in top form.This performance from the original line-up is a must have for Allman Brothers fans. I'm not sure how long this release is gonna be around but my advice is to get it while you can at a reasonable price. This CD (at the time this was written) is available from Amazon UK for less than $15,shipping included. Track List Below.
1. Statesboro Blues
2. Trouble No More
3. Don t Keep Me Wonderin
4. Done Somebody Wrong
5. One Way Out
6. In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed
7. Stormy Monday
8. You Don t Love Me
9. Soul Serenade
10. You Don t Love Me
11. Soul Serenade (In Memory Of King Curtis)
12. Hot Lanta

HASH(0x9a2e22c4) out of 5 stars One Of The Best April 24 2012
By Ken Herrick - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Because of the setting, this may be the best mixxed of all the band's early, live CDs. The Ludlow Garage comes close but if you like to know what is being played by Duane & what is being played by Dickie as I do, this is a must have. I agree that some songs aren't as "firey" as some other shows but that's the Yin & the Yang. This may not be around for long so get it now if you wanna hear these guys at their best.

Definitely as good, imho, as the Fillmore East show. They were all on their game and the energy of those Fillmore shows is reflected here, and it rivals any of the great live shows. A must-have recording.

HASH(0x9a2e2300) out of 5 stars Did these guys ever have an off night? June 2 2012
By Walter Sobchak Esq. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I consider myself to be somewhere between an uber-casual to avid "Up to Duane's death" Allman's fan. I own all the studio stuff (+ Dreams) up to "Brother's and Sister's" and all the legitimately released live stuff from that period. I have to say, IMHO, that this performance is just a notch below "Fillmore East", maybe half a notch. Sonically it's not going to set new standards, they may have been a tad more possessed on @FE, but the mix is fantastic. Greg's vocals and keyboards are clear as a bell for the most part, Duane and Dickie almost manage to yet again sound like the world's first and only four armed guitar player and Barry, JJ and Butch do not disappoint either...but then when did they ever?

Does the music world need any further proof that Duane Allman was one of only 5 or 6 guitarists that ever really mattered? Well, here it is and 40 years later we can only guess where his frightening talent may have taken him. I played this for a friend on the way home from work yesterday and he said that he loved "Southern Rock". I almost pulled over and asked him to get out. "THIS IS NOT SOUTHERN ROCK" I almost screamed. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet and Charlie Daniels are Southern Rock bands, these guys are Musicians. Buy it quickly, without hesitation (got mine from AmazonUK) because I can't imagine it being around for very long.

HASH(0x9a2e2738) out of 5 stars At their best. May 14 2012
By Vault Productions - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is some really great ABB, the music is from the heart. I found a link to download this for free, just Google it. I did find a copy on Ebay, so it has to travel across the pond. Duane Allman is much a legend as Hendrix and it is clear on these recordings. This is a must have for any fan. Jam on.
