Personnel: Elvin Bishop (vocals, guitar); Gregg Allman (vocals, piano, organ); Duane Allman (guitar, slide guitar); Dickey Betts (guitar); Thom Doucette (harmonica); Rudolph Carter (saxophone); Stephen Miller (piano); Berry Oakley (bass guitar); Jaimoe Johnson (drums, congas, timbales); Butch Trucks (drums, timbales); Bobby Caldwell (percussion). Recording information: Filmore East, NY (03/12/1971-06/27/1971). The original Live At The Fillmore East album is one of the finest live documents of the rock era, capturing the original line-up of one of the 70s' tightest outfits before they were cruelly robbed of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. Taken from five 1971 performances at New York's fabled Fillmore East, the extended and effortlessly melodic workouts of 'In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed' and 'Whipping Post' remain definitive recordings. The dual guitar interplay of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts glides effortlessly over the propulsive rhythm section of Oakley and twin drummers Jaimoe and Butch Trucks, while Greg Allman's powerful blues voice and melodic keyboard work provides the icing on the cake.
Entertainment Weekly (11/27/92, p.82) - "...piles on the flowing blues-jazz-rock improvisation, taking full sonic advantage of two hour-plus CDs..." - Rating: A Q (3/93, p.94) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...the mix of blowsy and lyrical guitar remains extraordinarily potent, right from the opening swagger of 'Statesboro Blues' to 'Drunken Hearted Boy' which closed the show at six the following morning..."
They're known as the founding fathers of Southern rock, but the Allman Brothers were actually much more progressive than the musical school they inspired. They reclaimed the US-influenced blues-rock of Cream et al. and brought it back to America, adding country and jazz touches. They were noted for their improvisatory skills, particularly the inspired dual-guitar work of Dickey Betts and the late Duane Allman. Even after the deaths of Duane and original bassist Berry Oakey and the departure of Betts, the band soldiered on strongly into the 21st century, led by founding singer/organist Gregg Allman.
