Eat a Peach [Deluxe Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Allman Brothers fans are a hardy lot. For years, make that decades, they have been inundated with reissues of the same material with teasers thrown in, or have been given truly bizarre compilations such as the Madacy ripoff entitled Essential, which didn't include many of the band's biggest hits and on its second disc provided a straight reissue of Enlightened Rogues. The Deluxe Edition of Eat a Peach is something different, however. For those who have been in the depths of confusion about the various Fillmore East reissues -- whether the straight At Fillmore East album or the Fillmore Concerts set -- this version of Eat a Peach, fully and beautifully remastered, does hold a bit of a treasure trove, though the word is...

The Deluxe Edition of Eat a Peach is something different, however. For those who have been in the depths of confusion about the various Fillmore East reissues -- whether the straight At Fillmore East album or the Fillmore Concerts set -- this version of Eat a Peach, fully and beautifully remastered, does hold a bit of a treasure trove, though the word is that the second disc has been oft bootlegged. While the album is on disc one, in all its pieces and in proper order, disc two stands as a virtually unreleased concert of the ABB's final performance at the Fillmore on June 27, 1971 -- with Duane, who was killed in October of that year. Two of the disc's tracks had been previously released -- "Midnight Rider" (on Duane Allman Anthology, Vol. 2) and "One Way Out" (on the original Eat a Peach, which means the track shows up on both discs here). The rest of these performances -- "Statesboro Blues," "Don't Keep Me Wonderin'," "Done Somebody Wrong," "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" (12:51 in length), "Hot 'Lanta," "Whipping Post" (20:17 in length), and "You Don't Love Me" (clocking in at a whopping 17:24) -- have never been officially released. Sure, it's a standard Allman Brothers set -- if there ever was a such a thing. The playing is very inspired and adventurous, Gregg's singing is better than on the original Fillmore dates, and the interplay between Duane and Dickey Betts is symbiotic. And it rocks like a mother. Real fans of the original band have something to be happy about for a change, as this hidden bit of Allman memorabilia with the beloved Duane is finally on the shelves -- it might have been nice if Universal had issued the second disc as its own album so you didn't have to buy Eat a Peach
The Independent - Andy Gill
Eat a Peach shows just how graceful Southern rock could be. There are hardly any unnecessary longueurs, and both "Blue Sky" and the concluding showcase "Little Martha" exhibit a subtle charm and delicacy matched by few other bands of that era.

    This is the best version of Eat A Peach that I have heard. This

    This is the best version of Eat A Peach that I have heard. This is probably my favorite ABB album. I mean, it has live with Duane, Some of the best music that the Allman Brothers have ever made is on here. From the live "One Way Out" to studio version of "Blue Skys". This competes with the SACD version that Mercury put out in 04, but it also has a bonus disc of a concert later in 71 with new versions of their standards. The artwork of the digipak is stunning.

    This is my first Allman Brothers and I love it. Best Song is Blue Sky. Mountain Jam is the best jam song ever! The second disc includes 20 awesome minutes of Whipping Post. Buy it Today!
