at fillmore east

The Allman Brothers Band kicked out the jams and had their commercial breakthrough with one of the greatest live albums in rock history. The double-album 'At Fillmore East' was taken from four shows at the Fillmore East in New York City during March of 1971. They blended blues, country, jazz, and gospel in a series of magical performances that feature the virtuoso guitar work of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, Gregg Allman on piano and organ, Berry Oakley on bass, with drum and percussion duties shared by Jai Johanny Johanson and Butch Trucks.   The album went to number thirteen in the US and was certified gold before the year was out.

Duane Allman would express:  "One thing I can say about our band is this. If you got something good to lay on us, enlighten us, but if you got something bad to lay on us, you can get your teeth knocked clean down your throat man. Dangerous people. Lovely people."
