The music on these cds represents (along with Jimi Hendrix's filmore concerts) the finest moments in rock history. I have never heard anything that comes close. Their tight blues-rock songs are ausome, with great vocals by Gregg Allman and some impressive guitar by Duane Allman. But the band truely shines when they jam. The intertwining guitar parts between Duane and Dicky Betts, while Berry Oakely improvises as much as the guitarists and sets the tone of the song. While one of the drumers, Butch Trucks, lays down a jazz-blues groove, the other, Jaimoe, comes in and out of the pocket with very skillful snare and percussion work, and both of them have a crazy solo during "Mountain Jam". The songs in which the band is most in toutch with the music of the spheres are "Mountain Jam", "Whippin' Post", "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "You Don't Love Me". "Idlewood South" and "Allman Brothers Band" are both great cds but niether of them come close to this.

This is one of my favorite recordings ever. It is an amazing set of two discs. Everyone should have this disc.

Most of the songs have been released in one form or another, either on "Live at the Fillmore" or "Eat a Peach". But never together in setlist form. The sound qualitly is also vastly improved. So good in fact that you can tell where each person was set up on stage. Bottom line is if you've never heard "Live at the Fillmore" you should and if you have you should again. So throw on the headphones kick back and listen to it straight through and you'll think you were there. Oh and did I mention this show has some great guitar playing!
