A good live album, but not quite the worthy successor to the Fillmore shows in their various forms -- the band is in form throughout this more than one-hour distillation of shows in Boston and New York from their 1992 tour, covering old and new repertory, but there are no surprises.

Overview

A good live album, but not quite the worthy successor to the Fillmore shows in their various forms -- the band is in form throughout this more than one-hour distillation of shows in Boston and New York from their 1992 tour, covering old and new repertory, but there are no surprises. The song lineup wastes some opportunities, however, and there isn't any serious new ground covered, which may be par for the course for a band in its 22nd year. On the up side, the crispness of the recording helps one fully appreciate the power and articulation of the playing by everyone, but especially Dickey Betts and Warren Haynes.

This isn't the Fillmore East, but how could it be? The surviving members are 20 years older, sadder, and hopefully wiser. The songs are a nice mix of then current and vintage material both electric and semi acoustic. Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts split the lead vocals, Gregg's organ stands out, and Betts and Warren Haynes mesh nicely on guitar..
