Description
This is a limited edition double 180gm vinyl LP pressing of The Allman Brothers Band’s absolute masterpiece album, Eat A Peach.

This pressing has been remastered from original analog tapes by Keven Reeves to 192kHz 24-bit audio and then cut on copper plates using Abbey Road Mastering's Direct Metal Mastering (DMM) lathe. The original artwork has been faithfully reproduced.

The third studio album from The Allman Brothers was released Feb 12, 1972, following their breakthrough hit live album At Fillmore East in 1971. Produced by Tom Dowd, Eat a Peach was a mix of studio recordings both with-and-without guitarist Duane Allman, and recordings from the band's famed 1971 Fillmore East performances.

During the album's production, Duane tragically died from a motorcycle accident in Macon, Georgia, "Blue Sky" having been the last recording he ever played on. Part of the album was completed after his death, and reflects the band's coming to terms with tragedy in songs like "Ain't Wastin' Time No More".  

Eat a Peach was an immediate and huge success, peaking at #4 on Billboard's Top 200 Pop, eventually certified platinum. 

Eat A Peach's album artwork is notable -- Created by W. David Powell of Wonder Graphics, the cover does not have the album's name, but features the now-iconic ABB peach truck. The band had not decided on a name at the time of Duane's death, and so it was omitted entirely. The gatefold uncovers an ornate and beautiful psychedelic scene, a free-flowing joint effort by J. F. Holmes and Powell.
