All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Whereas most great live rock albums are about energy, At Fillmore East is like a great live jazz session, where the pleasure comes from the musicians' interaction and playing. The great thing about that is, the original album that brought the Allmans so much acclaim is as notable for its clever studio editing as it is for its performances. Producer Tom Dowd skillfully trimmed some of the performances down to relatively concise running time edits later restored on the double-disc set The Fillmore Concerts, at times condensing several performances into one track.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Whereas most great live rock albums are about energy, At Fillmore East is like a great live jazz session, where the pleasure comes from the musicians' interaction and playing. The great thing about that is, the original album that brought the Allmans so much acclaim is as notable for its clever studio editing as it is for its performances. Producer Tom Dowd skillfully trimmed some of the performances down to relatively concise running time edits later restored on the double-disc set The Fillmore Concerts, at times condensing several performances into one track. Far from being a sacrilege, this tactic helps present the Allmans in their best light, since even if the music isn't necessarily concise three tracks run over ten minutes, with two in the 20-minute range, it does showcase the group's terrific instrumental interplay, letting each member but particularly guitarist Duane and keyboardist/vocalist Gregg shine. Even after the release of the unedited concerts, this original double album single CD remains the pinnacle of the Allmans and Southern rock at its most elastic, bluesy, and jazzy.

    Close your eyes and you are there......

    I'm back in June of '71, on line at the Fillmore East in the Village, across from the Electric Circus, where Sonny Barger & his proud Angels sit out front on their beautiful bikes! We were outside but could clearly hear the 4 chord blues progression of T.Bone Walkers-Stormy Monday Blues screaming through Marshall amps, warming us up (if we were lucky) for the late show to take us through till 3 or 4 AM. Hopefully, the opening act (whoever?) will be over quickly-more time to feel Greg Allmans fingers tie me To The Whipping Post! The band captures the spirit of a hot June night as each member wales his interpretation of the blues into his own biography of life in the deep south, transporting the music into daydreams for the future, far inside your mind. And, if your lucky enough to be in the first 50 or so rows, their faces, along with each tune on this historic album will be forever etched in your brain-along with the screaming thunder of our own Hells Angels reving their way up St. Marks Place. Thanks to history's contribution of Bill Graham for his Fillmore East (& West), The Allman Brothers for their incredible talent(& BEST REMAKE OF STORMY MONDAY, EVER!!!) and Sonny & the ''AJ's'', PLUS...this album with it's wonderful memories of the best times of my youth, at age 17!

    They didn't even headline! I was there.

    Can you believe Allmans were back-up to Johnny Winter at that gig? And J Geils Band played first! Best concert I was ever at!
