Allman Brothers Band - At Fillmore East (1971) (2CD Deluxe Edit 2003)

THE FILLMORE CONCERTS contains the Allman's 1971 live recording, THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND AT THE FILLMORE EAST. It also includes material omitted from the original LP, plus previously edited tracks that have been restored to their original length.

2003 saw the release of a two-disc edition entitled At Fillmore East [Deluxe Edition]. It compiled all the released versions of the Fillmore material, some material from the collection Duane Allman: An Anthology and the Dreams box set, and remixed the material with a better soundstage than the 1992 release The Fillmore Concerts.

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. 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 shippedmore…, and the Brothers haven't scaled such heights since. But, then, neither has anyone else...Bob Hope

The original Live At The Fillmore East album is one of the finest live documents of the rock era, capturing the original line-up of one of the 70s' tightest outfits before they were cruelly robbed of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. Taken from five 1971 performances at New York's fabled Fillmore East, the extended and effortlessly melodic workouts of 'In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed' and 'Whipping Post' remain definitive recordings. The dual guitar interplay of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts glides effortlessly over the propulsive rhythm section of Oakley and twin drummers Jaimoe and Butch Trucks, while Greg Allman's powerful blues voice and melodic keyboard work provides the icing on the cake...Robert Hoffnung
