The Allman Brothers Band - 1971 A

Live at A&R Studios, New York,
August 26, 1971
and broadcast on WPLJ-FM.
A stereo FM broadcast.

This album was recorded live at A&R Studios, New York, on August 26, 1971 and broadcast in stereo on WPLJ-FM. The objective of the broadcast was to promote their "Live At Fillmore East" album. The show was recorded two weeks after the death of King Curtis, who was a great friend, and a huge influence to the late, great Duane Allman, who also, tragically lost his life in a motorcycle crash in Macon on October 29, just two months after this show.

During the broadcast, Duane pauses to reflect on his late friend: "About King Curtis - that was one of the finest cats there ever was. He was just right on top of getting next to young people, you know? It's a shame. If y'all get the chance, listen to that album he made out at Fillmore West. Boy, it's incredible, it's unbelievable, the power and the emotional stature the man had. He's an incredible human being". A little over eight minutes into the song, `You Don't Love Me", Duane slows the band, leading everyone into his own version of `Soul Serenade'. When Duane repeats the melody of the song , the audience begins clapping along to the lovely tune. Suddenly, Duane jumps in and absolutely cuts the melody to shreds with one of the most emotional and passionate solos you will ever hear, taking it to another amaxing level. This is an incredible powerful, graceful, and loving musical eulogy for his lost friend.

Dieser Mitschnitt eines live vor Publikum eingespielten Radio-Auftritts der legend�ren Southern-Rock-Formation "Allman Brothers Band" d�rfte die letzte Aufnahme sein, die noch die Original-Besetzung zeigt, bevor die Band auf tragische Weise innerhalb eines Jahres zwei ihrer Mitglieder durch t�dliche Verkehrsunf�lle verlieren sollte. Nur wenigen Bands gelingt der Durchbruch mit einem Live-Album, den "Allman Brothers" war genau das wenige Monate zuvor gegl�ckt, mit dem legend�ren "At Fillmore East". Fans bietet diese Platte aus den New Yorker A&R-Studios nun die M�glichkeit zum Vergleich: viele Songs aus der jahrelang erprobten Setlist vom Fillmore East finden sich auch hier: "Statesboro Blues", "Done Somebody Wrong" und nat�rlich das epische "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed". Was f�r eine unglaubliche Show diese Band mit ihren "Duellen" zwischen zwei Gitarristen und zwei Schlagzeugern live abgeliefert haben muss, davon vermittelt diese Live-Aufnahme einen mitrei�enden Eindruck.
