All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A tribute to the dearly departed Duane, Eat a Peach rambles through two albums, running through a side of new songs, recorded post-Duane, spending a full album on live cuts from the Fillmore East sessions, then offering a round of studio tracks Duane completed before his death. On the first side, they do suggest the mellowness of the Dickey Betts-led Brothers and Sisters, particularly on the lovely "Melissa," and this stands in direct contrast with the monumental live cuts that dominate the album. They're at the best on the punchier covers of "One Way Out" and "Trouble No More," both proof of the group's exceptional talents as a roadhouse blues-rock band, but ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A tribute to the dearly departed Duane, Eat a Peach rambles through two albums, running through a side of new songs, recorded post-Duane, spending a full album on live cuts from the Fillmore East sessions, then offering a round of studio tracks Duane completed before his death. On the first side, they do suggest the mellowness of the Dickey Betts-led Brothers and Sisters, particularly on the lovely "Melissa," and this stands in direct contrast with the monumental live cuts that dominate the album. They're at the best on the punchier covers of "One Way Out" and "Trouble No More," both proof of the group's exceptional talents as a roadhouse blues-rock band, but Duane does get his needed showcase on "Mountain Jam," a sprawling 33-minute jam that may feature a lot of great playing, but is certainly a little hard for anyone outside of diehards to sit through. Apart from that cut, the record showcases the Allmans at their peak, and it's hard not to feel sad as the acoustic guitars of "Little Martha" conclude the record, since this tribute isn't just heartfelt, it offers proof of Duane Allman's immense talents and contribution to the band.
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.

    By Far THE VERY BRST

    I have seen the Allman Brothers band sooo many times,I stopped counting. In fact, one night Robin Trower opened for them, virtually an unknown band at the time. This CD PUTS you right there with them - the only song, which is my favorite thats not on the CD, is Stormy Monday, but it just wouldn't be the same without Duane playing. Side note: Duane and Eric Clapton together put out the very most famous "Layla" when they where with Derek and the Dominos.
    EAT A PEACH is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How could you not ALREADY have it.

    Great Allman Brothers Band Album Passes The Torch

    Guitarist/leader Duane Allman died during the recording of EAT A PEACH, and as a result, this CD passes the torch to his brother Gregg and guitarist Dickey Betts. There are lots of great songs here, the only missteps being "Les Brers In 'E' Minor" and "Mountain Jam." The song "Melissa" is about the finality of death and loss, and reminds me of when I filed obituaries at a volunteer site years ago, whereas "Ain't Wastin' Time No More" has inspired me to go ahead with my visit with my family for Mother's Day despite the H1N1 Flu. This is a CD that you must own.
