Description
The Fillmore's stage manager Michael Ahern unceremoniously provides the only subtle part of the album by uttering the now (in)famous opening, "OK, The Allman Brothers Band..."

This is a double LP 2008 reissue of The Allman Brothers Band's "Live at the Fillmore East." on 180-gram vinyl. Few live albums are as revered as this someday to-be classical masterpiece.

More than just the raw energy on stage and from the crowd, it is the electric, jazz-like interplay between the performers that sets a high bar for jam bands to reach. The impeccable rhythm blended with masterful instrumental work, keeps fans coming back for more.

Most noteworthy are the dueling lead guitars of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, and the instrumental byplay between Duane and his brother Gregg on the keyboards. Taken from a series of live shows in San Francisco recorded in March of 1971, "Live at the Fillmore East" was an instant classic.

It became the band's major breakthrough, but was tragically followed by the two separate motorcycle deaths of Duane and bassist Berry Oakley.
