The Colossal Mess of "The Allman Brothers Band at Fillmore East"

By Published: October 7, 2006
However, these performances are historical documents. At Fillmore East is considered by this and other writers as one of the greatest, if not the greatest Rock Live recording ever made. In listening to the previously unreleased material included on Eat a Peach, Deluxe Edition, it becomes abundantly clear that all of this music is worthy of hearing and documenting, regardless of previous production prejudice. Universal, do the right thing and release all of the available tapes of these shows.

Please see the companion article The Colossal Triumph of Joe Cocker Mad Dogs and Englishmen The Complete Fillmore East Concerts.

Writer's Note: Should any of the readership find any of this content inaccurate, please let me know. Additionally, if there are documented set lists available (aside from those from bootleg lists) from the March 11-13, 1971 and June 27, 1971 shows, I would be grateful to receive and incorporate that information here.
