Album Review

Whereas most great live rock albums are about energy, At Fillmore East is like a great live jazz session, where the pleasure comes from the musicians' interaction and playing. The great thing about that is, the original album that brought the Allmans so much acclaim is as notable for its clever studio editing as it is for its performances. Producer Tom Dowd skillfully trimmed some of the performances down to relatively concise running time (edits later restored on the double-disc set The Fillmore Concerts), at times condensing several performances into one track. Far from being a sacrilege, this tactic helps present the Allmans in their best light, since even if the music isn't necessarily concise (three tracks run over ten minutes, with two in the 20-minute range), it does showcase the group's terrific instrumental interplay, letting each member (but particularly guitarist Duane and keyboardist/vocalist Gregg) shine. Even after the release of the unedited concerts, this original double album remains the pinnacle of the Allmans and Southern rock at its most elastic, bluesy, and jazzy.

Insight into Genius

"Whipping Post" from this recording is a track that I have listened to over and over again.

It is a seminal recording, but on a recent tour of QLD, I really wanted to listen to "Whipping Post" but it is ALBUM ONLY, so I bought the whole album.

Driving around, I just started playing the album from the beginning, and three days later, I was still doing it.

The guitar work of Duane Allman is obviously exceptional and a highlight. But it is the feel of the whole recording and the way the whole band plays together on this recording that provides us all with insight into genius. Gregg's vocal is incredible - but after repeated listens to realise how hooked in you are to the bass groove of Berry Oakley and the drumming of Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny Johanson.

It's an album worthy of its hype and status and one that forces you to lament for times gone by when music was raw, organic, pure and other words now used to describe expensive fruit juice.

Buy it.

The story of the Allman Brothers Band is one of triumph, tragedy, redemption, dissolution, and more redemption. Since their beginning in the late '60s, they went from being America's single most influential band to a shell of their former self trading on past glories, to reach the 21st century resurrected as one of the most respected rock acts of their era. For the first half of the '70s, the Allman Brothers Band was the most influential rock group in America, redefining rock music and its boundaries....
