Robbie pointed out that The Allman Brothers Band show on March 12th at the Beacon this year will be the 40 year anniversary of when At Fillmore East was recorded. Obviously the boys are planning something very compelling for that date and also the whole Beacon run.
That sold out show will be something, and its a pretty hot ticket. Whose got my extra?
The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East is easily one of my favorite albums. I pulled out my copy on vinyl the other day, hadn’t listened to it in years, and surprisingly I remembered all the scratches, pops and crackles all over it.
For some fun I put together a mixtape of all the At Fillmore East tracks played live in 2010. Click here to download the mixtape.
The tracks were taken from shows at New York’s Palace Theater, Wanee Festival and Boston’s Orpheum Theater. The band was in fine form in 2010, in every regard. All the members are playing at the top of their game. As a sample I posted “Stormy Monday” for you to listen to over here.
On top of this Allman Brothers Beacon run, 2011 is shaping up to be a big year for solo records from the band members. Greg is releasing Low Country Blues next week. Which you can stream on NPR right now, and it sounds awesome. In the spring Warren is releasing a solo album of soul music. When I was hanging out with Derek and Susan the other day they mentioned slowly recording some tracks for a release this year.
Should be a good year! Hope you enjoy the At Fillmore West 2010 mixtape.
