An Expansive The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings Featuring The Allman Brothers Band To Arrive In July

The Allman Brothers Band has attained a clarity that few Rock bands can lay claim to, a clarity that has lovingly brought them into the hearts of many fans. Over their years, they have endured catastrophe with the deaths of Duane Allman, and in a similar mishap, of Berry Oakley, both just a year apart from each other. But they have also produced some important live albums including the partial live set, Eat A Peach, and the magnificent At Fillmore East.

At Fillmore East documented the final shows of the legendary Fillmore East featuring the three night stands in March of 1971 by The Allman Brothers Band. Hailed by many as one of the best live albums ever made, the album helped the band achieve a massive fame that they still hold to this day.

On July 29, Mercury Records (the original albums were released on Capricorn Records) will revisit the shows with The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings. With not too much info to go on, there will be a CD issue, along with a 4LP set, and the usual DD of the title.

As more info becomes available, I will be sure to provide the details in an update.
