Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Whipping Post" - Rated 393/500!
Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: The Allman Brothers Rated 2nd!
The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East has been described as one of the greatest double live albums of all time. In terms of capturing the sheer magic, myth and momentum of a great American rocknroll band the greatest, said Rolling Stone at the very peak of their powers of jam-hot experimentation, At Fillmore East has precious few peers.
"Although this double album is unbeatable testimony to the Allman Brothers' improvisational skills, it is also evidence of how they connected with the crowds at New York's Fillmore East, and how the reciprocal energy gave birth to rock's greatest live double LP. "The audience would kind of play along with us," singer-organist Gregg Allman said of those March 1971 shows. "They were right on top of every single vibration coming from the stage." The guitar team of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts was at its hair-raising peak, fusing blues and jazz with emphatic force in "Whipping Post" and "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed." But their telepathy was cut short just three months after the album's release, when Duane died in a motorcycle accident." - www.rollingstone.com
At Fillmore East remains a milestone, a truly awesome illustration of all that The Allman Brothers Band were capable of. As guitarist Duane Allman put it, the stage was the groups natural element, the one place where all their natural fire burned most vividly.
UMe and Island Def Jam Entertainment are proud to present The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East 2LP Reissue, featuring incendiary live recordings made during The Allman Brothers Bands two visits to the legendary Fillmore East in New York City in 1971.
"This anthem was written on an ironing board in a darkened Florida bedroom by Allman. Punctuated by Duane Allman's knifelike guitar incisions, the song is best appreciated in the 23-minute incarnation on At Fillmore East." - Rolling Stone
