EDITORS’ NOTES

The Allman Brothers Band not only survived the death of slide guitarist Duane Allman in the midst of the Eat a Peach sessions, they subsequently emerged with an extraordinary double album that showcased their many stylistic sides. Ultimately, the band cobbled together a potent mix of nine tracks; three studio cuts with Duane on board, three scintillating tracks from 1971’s monumental Fillmore East shows, and three more studio performances completed after Duane’s tragic motorcycle accident. “Melissa” and “Blue Sky,” with Duane and Dickey Betts trading licks, added a distinct country feel to the set, but the centerpieces remain the live workouts – two ripping blues covers and the 33-minute “Mountain Jam,” which set a standard for improvisational rock that’s rarely been matched.
