Album Review

If truth be told, the Allman Brothers Band have always been the quintessential American rock band, shaping a rootsy mix of blues, jazz, country, and rock into an elegant, nuanced sound that single-handedly created what became known as Southern rock. Full of beautiful dual guitar leads and driven by double drummers, and possessing a lead singer who, when he was on his game, had as much soul as anyone around, the Allman Brothers Band were also an improvisational band who found all kinds of new corners in their classic catalog when they played live, no matter what the configuration of the band was at the time. It's no coincidence that the group's first live album, 1971's landmark At Fillmore East, was the one that broke them commercially, because it showed this always impressive band in its natural habitat. So why does the world need another live Allman Brothers Band release? There have been several already since At Fillmore East, and most feature the same classic songs from the band's early legacy. The show's the same, or at least most of the set list is. But the world can always use another live Allman Brothers Band release — perhaps it helps to think of this band in the same way one looks at the various classic quartets and quintets of jazz artists like Miles Davis or John Coltrane. It's the songs, yeah, but it's also who's playing those songs, and all the little improv twists and turns that come with that. This live set was drawn from two shows of a ten-show run the Allman Brothers Band did at New York's Beacon Theatre in March of 1992, and it was with one of the best versions of the post-Duane Allman band in the middle of a triumphant and revitalizing tour, featuring the guitars of Dickey Betts and Warren Haynes, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe on drums, percussionist Marc Quiñones, Allen Woody on bass, and a nightmare-is-over Gregg Allman singing and playing organ like his old self. The catalog gems are here, from "Statesboro Blues" through "Blue Sky," "Midnight Rider," "Jessica," "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed," and "Whipping Post," and the band performs them like they're all brand-new, with spirit, precision, grace, elegance, and grit. One could argue that America has never produced a better live rock band, and that they've been that through all kinds of tragedy, upheaval, and personnel configurations is nothing short of amazing. The more live Allman Brothers Band shows we get to enjoy in this world, the better. It's that simple.

Customer Reviews

So Refreshing!

Live at the FIlmore got me through the last 40 years, this will take me the next 40...

Pick this up. This is really good!!

I have been an ABB fan since the beginning and this CD is one of the best I have heard in a long time. Hearing Tom Doucette on Harmonica is worth the price of admission alone. Also hearing Warren Haynes play slide again is a joy and makes me remember how good he was playing slide. The band is on fire and Greg is in great voice. Dickey is also singing and playing great. What a great tribute in possibly their last year together.

Special Treat!

Folks, this is a very special tasty treat that comes out at the right time with the band making it's final Beacon Run. Great line-up, great set list, great jams, great sound. You can feel the energy and the excitement in the air with all members firing on all cylinders. A welcome addition to any collection and an abSOULute highest of recommendations. I am thrilled to be going to 3 shows this March as The Allmans come to the end of the road and saddened that next March will have a huge void. Hopefully it will be filled with Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gov't Mule and Gregg Allman and Friends playing at the Beacon for years to come. Enjoy this!!!
