The Allman Brothers Band's 1971 live album, The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings, is hailed as one of the best live albums ever made and for good reason — all of the Southern blues-rockers' many assets are on full display on this juggernaut recorded during the three-night stand in March 1971 — showcasing the venue that featured some of rock music's biggest acts at the time.
This new release from Mercury Records contains a whopping 14 previously unreleased tracks recorded on March 12 and 13 — contained in four full sets from those dates, as unfortunately no tapes exist from the first night of the run.
Also included are complete versions of the two "You Don't Love Me's," that producer Tom Dowd cut and spliced together for the original version of the At Fillmore East album. As well you'll experience a recording of the Allman's Fillmore East-closing performance from June 27, 1971, and this time it includes Bill Graham's wonderful introduction of the band!
There has never been a better showcase for improvisational rock than this 1971 concert recording, and few (if any) live rock albums are in its rank. With only two studio albums (and plenty of touring) under their belt, the Georgia sextet tore into the Fillmore East with road-tested buoyancy.
Greg Allman's grittty vocals and grooving organ work, the dynamic twin lead guitars of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, the two-drummer attack of Jaimoe and Butch Trucks cap a thundering performance that takes in four blues covers, two original instrumentals and an epic, frenzied 23-minute version of their signature "Whipping Post."
The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings helped The Allman Brothers Band achieve a massive fame that they still hold to this day. It ranks No. 49 among Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and remains among the top-selling albums in the band's catalogue.
"Titanic guitarist Duane Allman was at the peak of his powers, pushing his foil, Dickey Betts, to unsurpassed peaks. Vocalist-keyboardist Gregg Allman would have been a star in any other setting; here he's merely one more component in a brilliant ensemble. Duane Allman died shortly after At Fillmore East shipped, and the Brothers haven't scaled such heights since. But, then, neither has anyone else." — Amazon.com
