Amazon Product Description

Recorded in the September of 1991, originally for Japanese TV, The Allman Brothers Bandís beloved Live At Great Woods showcases the classic American rock band reaching a new generation of audiences. Original band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe were joined by new guitarist Warren Haynes, bassist Allen Woody and percussionist Marc Quinones in one of the most powerful lineups in the groupís history. This concert - recorded before a crowd of nearly 20,000 adoring fans at the Great Woods Amphitheater in Massachusetts - features a top-notch set of fan favorites, with a fiery acoustic mini-set included for good measure.

This DVD release of Live At Great Woods fills a crucial gap in The Allman Brothers Bandís videography: after years of demand, fans can experience the original longform video version of this concert (previously only available on VHS), with no interviews edited into the main feature. Finally, fans have nothing standing between them and the top-notch performances of this set. 

Live At Great Woods is an incredible chance to discover (or rediscover) the raw talent and pure magic that have made The Allman Brothers Band such icons of American rock and roll.

They say you never forget your first time. 

For nearly 25 years, traveling to New Yorkís Beacon Theatre to see The Allman Brothers Band play a stretch of high-spirited live shows has become a rite of passage for fans old and new. What began as a daring ten-night run at the acclaimed venue is now a symbiotic relationship between a band, a venue and a devoted fan base, the likes of which are virtually unprecedented in rock and roll history. 

Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theater 1992, is a new two-disc set showcasing The Allman Brothers Bandís very first time playing such an extended run at the Beacon. In the spirit of The Allmansí iconic 1971 live album At Fillmore East, Play All Night showcases Allman, Betts, Trucks, Jaimoe, Haynes, Woody and Quinones taking the Beaconís stage by storm. Through their most-requested songs, deep cuts and new favorites, the Allmans expertly showcase that unmistakable raw energy - at once practiced and spontaneous - that still make them one of the most beloved live acts.

Play All Night features liner notes by John Lynskey, editor of the official ABB magazine Hittiní The Note, and onstage photos by longtime band photographer Kirk West, to further immerse audiences into the story behind these captivating sets.

Whether youíve never experienced the magic of The Allman Brothers Band at the Beacon Theater or youíre eagerly planning for next yearís shows, Play All Night is a ďfirst timeĒ youíll want to re-live over and over again.

Amazon Product Description

By 2009, the Allman Brothers Band had morphed into a line-up that consisted of Gregg, Jaimoe and Butch, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge and Marc Quinones on percussion. In tune with each other musically, philosophically and personally, these players were hitting on all cylinders as they prepared to mark the band s 40th anniversary with a no-holds-barred celebration during the group s annual stand at the historic Beacon Theatre in New York City. This rustic venue had become a favored spot for the ABB to play in Manhattan, in the tradition of the Fillmore East. This 15-show run was dedicated to the memory of Duane Allman, and accordingly, some very special guests came out to pay homage to the man known as 'Skydog'. Sixty-two artists, including Eric Clapton, Levon Helm, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, and Buddy Guy were there, with someone of note sitting in during every show, except on one night. March 26, 2009, marked the exact 40th anniversary of the first time Duane, Gregg, Jaimoe, Butch, Berry and Dickey played together, and so this performance belonged to the Allman Brothers Band, and no one else. 

The current band decided to honor the original six by playing the group s first two albums: The Allman Brothers Band and Idlewild South, back to back, track by track. Like a tiger unleashed from a cage, the band pounced from the opening moment of 'Don t Want You No More/Not My Cross to Bear', and the power and fury only went up from there. Seven men were playing as one, each feeding off the energy from the others, communicating in a non-verbal, mutually understood musical conversation.

40: A very special number, and this DVD proves why the Allman Brothers Band is a special group indeed. Savor every note of every song, because chances are a band the likes of this one will not come our way again.

From ABB website - Released March 2007
Any new music from the original lineup of the Allman Brothers Band is great to hear, and their new Archive Series CD, Boston Common 8/17/71, is one you will listen to often, from the first note to the last one! The band played in Boston many times in their early days, and it continues to be one of their favorite towns to perform in. The ABB truly reached their first big peak in 1971, and this single-disc CD showcases the music they presented on the stage each night they went out. Along with some cool samplings of their stage banter are amazing versions of "You Don't Love Me," "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed," and a riveting and unusual "Whipping Post" that ends the show. Get your copy of this outstanding performance and enjoy it time and time again!

Of the guests, the most exciting is Eric Clapton, he played on large portions of the 3/19 and 3/20 show. 

From ABB website
"The final show of the 2009 Beacon run was one for the ages! Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of The Dead added their own psychedelic flavor to this show, and former ABB keyboardist Chuck Leavell made a triumphant guest appearance on tunes like "Jessica" and "Mountain Jam.""

At some point I'd love to get these, but at this time haven't yet.
