The Allman Brothers Band - The Closing Night Of Fillmore East - CD
The Allman Brothers
Fillmore East, New York, NY June 27th 1971 WNEW-FM
The Allman Brothers’ music was — and still is — arguably the crossroads where the blues, jazz and gospel go out drinking for the night with raw rock’n’roll. That is perhaps why promoter and impresario Bill Graham fell in love with their sound, giving them more nights at his Fillmore clubs on both coasts than most any other band of the times and choosing them to close out the final nights of the venue in 1971. What followed has since become legendary and is the finest example of ‘jamming’ this side of heaven. Tragically, just over
seven months later, Duane Allman, half of the ’71 group’s iconic guitar tandem would die in a motorcycle accident with Berry Oakley suffering the same fate only a year later.
