At Fillmore East on Clear Vinyl
The band’s first major hit album, the breakout release that transformed The Allman Brothers Band from a regional cult into nationwide superstars and ignited the fashion for double live albums, The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East peaked at just #13 on the charts yet quickly sold more than a million copies (“gold” in the pre-1976 era). Only the band’s third album, it was unique for a live excursion in that guitarist Duane Allman, singer/keyboardist Gregg Allman, guitarist Dickey Betts, bassist Berry Oakley, and drummers Jaimoe and Butch Trucks had never recorded in the studio the majority of the songs they performed.
From the mobile studio parked outside the Fillmore, producer Tom Dowd recorded both the 8 p.m. shows and more open-ended 11:30 p.m. performances on Friday and Saturday night (March 12/13), winding up with 20 reels of truly incendiary tape from which to carve the final album. Starting with the blues of Willie McTell’s “Statesboro Blues,” Elmore James’ “Done Somebody Wrong” and a near-nine-minute rendering of the T. Bone Walker chestnut “Stormy Monday” before an epic 20-minute “You Don’t Love Me” exploded into a triumphant “Hot ‘Lanta.” A 13-minute take on Dickey Betts’ “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” was followed by the 23-minute showstopper “Whipping Post.”
