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. The allman brothers band’s breakthrough 1971 live album at fillmore east expanded to six-cd box set the 1971 fillmore east recordings.

Three months after the album's release in July 1971, Duane died in a motorcycle accident that forever altered the group's course in history. They'd go on to score a hit single, a No. 1 album, breakups, disillusionment and a legacy as one of the world's premier jam bands. In all, five shows are here (the band played four concerts total on March 12-13, two shows each night). Only 'Statesboro Blues' makes an appearance at all of them, but faves like 'In Memory of Elizabeth Reed' and 'Whipping Post' show up four times each. Because of the Allmans' knack for reworking their songs onstage, however, there are enough differences to pull in fans who think they may already know this material.
With 1971’s At Fillmore East, The Allman Brothers Band reinvented the art of the live album. Here's the history of Duane Allman’s last and greatest musical statement. The first two weeks of September 1971, just before At Fillmore East was released, provide a snapshot of the band’s gruelling schedule: they played Montreal on September 3 and Miami the following night. They had five days off, when they went into Miami’s Criteria Studios with Dowd and laid down the first tracks for Betts’ Blue Sky, which would appear on their next studio album, Eat A Peach.
That means longtime fans get four versions of the band's set opener, "Statesboro Blues," as well as other cuts the group repeated each set. Thankfully, the Allman Brothers rarely played a song the same way twice, and every track here holds something surprising and unexpected to discover. Also included is the group's June 1971 show closing out the Fillmore East for owner Bill Graham,.
Duane Allman died shortly after At Fillmore East shipped, and the Brothers haven't scaled such heights since. But, then, neither has anyone else. Renews automatically. It came in the mail today and I've just finished playing the first cd, from the opening night of the Fillmore shows, unreleased before this new release. It is like hearing Fillmore East for the first time again! It's all fresh; the songs are just different enough to sound new to my ears.
Gregg Allman, Allman Brothers Band singer/keyboardist: Bill Graham was the most assertive person I’ve ever met. He was a straight shooter, a no-bullshit kind of guy. You always knew where you stood with Bill, ma. Trucks: When I met Bill Graham for the first time, it was when I showed up for that closing night and walked across the stage. saw me and came running. Up until that time I had never met him. He was always just this voice you heard on the other side of the room chewing somebody’s ass out who screwed up the night before. The Fillmore East album is absolutely live.
