Live at Fillmore East review

The Allman Brothers are almost a music category by themselves as they incorporated many musical styles and their improvisational savvy into a sound of their own. Live at Fillmore East is the first live album they released among many.  It is easily their best and was recorded in New York, NY on March 12-13, 1971. 

 This CD is split between short songs and long extended jams. Its tone is heavily blues oriented with some of the best guitar dueling ever recorded thanks to Duane Allman and Dickey Betts. Back that up with one of the best rock rhythm sections in history, Gregg Allman’s keyboards, and that add up to a must have classic.

The Allman Brother Fillmore Concerts have been issued several times. 
Originally it was one disc. Then, it was then expanded and called The Fillmore Concerts in 1992 (Polydor label). That is the version I have. Then in 2003, it was reissued, and renamed At Fillmore East that seems to only include one song, "Midnight Rider," more than The Fillmore Concerts

Which one to get? The two in bold are the best choices. Keep in mind that Eat A Peach includes the same version of "Mountain Jam" as what is included on the 2 disc sets.  This music is great, if you can afford the two disc set, more is better.

Live At The Fillmore East - 1 disc, 7 songs - '97
Live At The Fillmore East SACD - 2 discs, 7 songs '04
The Fillmore Concerts  - 2 discs, 12 songs - '91
At Fillmore East - 2 discs, 13 songs -'03 (add M. Rider to F. Concerts)
