For the first time live recordings of a classic 1970
Allman Brothers Band three night stand have been released on CD. The album,
The Allman Brothers Band Live at the Fillmore East, February 1970, was
made from recordings of the shows done by the Grateful Dead's house sound
mixer, onetime Acid King Owsley Stanley. These shows marked the first time the
Dead and the Allman Brothers shared a stage. For whatever reason, Stanley
rolled tape during the Allman Brothers' sets. The album was digitally mastered
from the original two-track tape, and has been released on Grateful Dead
The album includes early recordings of "In Memory of Elizabeth
Reed," "Whipping Post," and "Mountain Jam". The concert took place a bit more
than a year before the Allman Brothers returned to the Fillmore East for the
performances that would appear on The Allman Brothers Band Live at Fillmore
East, the album that made them stars. The songs that appear on the album:
"In Memory of Elizabeth Reed," "Trouble No More," "Hoochie Coochie Man,"
"Statesboro Blues," "Outskirts of Town," "Whipping Post" and "Mountain Jam."
