A good idea that worked out even better, with one small caveat. The Fillmore Concerts is made up of performances from the two Fillmore shows that originally comprised Live at the Fillmore East and the concert portions of Eat a Peach, plus one track ("One Way Out") from a Fillmore show from a couple of months later. The 16-track masters from each show are transferred to digital and remixed by original producer Tom Dowd. The sound is sterling and the two-hour-plus running time makes this a dream for fans of the band, as well as an improvement on the original releases of this material. It is also a slightly less honest release, where "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is concerned -- Dowd edited the version here together from two different performances, first and second shows, the dividing line being where Duane Allman's solo comes in. Not that this is the only concert album where this kind of editing has been done, but the original Live at the Fillmore contained a single take of the song, and some purists may prefer that. Otherwise, this set runs circles around more than 99 percent of the guitar albums ever released, with breathtaking sound (which, unlike the similarly conceived but less effective Derek & the Dominos Live at the Fillmore, loses none of its bite), and most fans might as well start here.

The greatest album ever. Period! The Allman Brothers Band members are the reincarnations of our greatest composers. Each member plays with such artistic beauty and detail that no matter how long each song is, it can never be boring. Very few albums have that feel to them. In the recommendation section are some titles which are worth owning
The Allman Brothers would have been hard pressed to match the music on these CDs even if Duane Allman had not been killed. A few spots that drag " the drum duet on Mountain Jam, Elvin Bishop's guest vocal on Drunken Hearted Boy"" but the music is matched by few concert albums. It took 30 years for the Allmans to assemble a lineup that approached the power of this one. There is another 2003 deluxe concert album of these songs that uses the original mixes.
It just does not get much better than this classic album.
