Description

The Allman Brothers Band’s show the night the Fillmore East closed its doors in the summer of 1971 has flirted with an official release for more than thirty years. “One Way Out” from this show was used on the 1971 Live At The Fillmore East and also issued on the 1972 studio LP Eat A Peach.
The band embark on a show that packs a lot into an eighty minute set. The opening numbers show some restraint and not until “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” does the band get into an elongated jam session reaching over twelve minutes. The show ends with a twenty minute “Whipping Post” and a seventeen minute encore “You Don’t Love Me”/ “Final Serenade” where Duane Allman quotes Handel’s “Joy To The World”.
