Grateful Dead Records Releases Live Allman Brother's CD

Early recordings see light of day.

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."
