The  Fillmore Concerts review

This is an expanded version of the original release Live at Fillmore East with an additional five (5) tracks, of which several are repeated from their Eat a Peach CD including the scorching 33 minute Mt. Jam.  If you have Eat a Peach or are a casual Allman Brothers fan you’ll be better off with the original release, Live at Fillmore East. However, if you have the hits from Eat a Peach on a compilation release, buying the expanded release is highly recommended as this release includes three great tracks also on Eat a Peach. Also important is that the song sequence flows better on the re-issue, The Fillmore Concerts, and is closer to the original concert especially the "Whipping Post" and "Mt. Jam."

The version of  "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" in this reissue is a combination of two different versions spliced together which is divided where Duane Allman's solo comes in; the original Live at Fillmore is a single take.

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 classic.

This is the live Allman Brothers at their best. Recorded live at the Fillmore East, New York, New York on March 12, March 13, and June 27 1971. by Barry Small ©

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
