This is the album that launched both southern rock and jam rock. The Allman Brothers Band became an institution and a Launchpad for many successful bands, and the Allman & Trucks family members are still very active.
Rock's greatest Live Album and Duane Allman illustrating there was one genius in this band and he was it.
Maybe I didn't take enough drugs or maybe I just wasn't there, but I've never really gotten into the jam band scene, either then (the Dead, et. al.) or now (Phish and friends). I just find 22 minute songs where everyone solos a little tedious and self-indulgent. That said, this famous concert album from 1971 is a pretty good example of a band jamming in an interesting way that draws from rock, blues, jazz, and r&b. You do have to wonder though if blues songs were meant to be blown up into electric jams devoid of their context (rural, poor, black). There are multiple reissues with more songs.
Great music but this one is not the full concert version. AAAAUUUUGGGHHH!!!
Cataloging personnel sure haven't knocked themselves out providing song titles, etc. Why do we pay these people? Hint: Let's downsize!
I never get tired of listening to this album, ever. Although most would consider this classic rock, it's really a much more complex mix of jazz and blues. In Memory of Elizabeth Reed is a long jazzy, Dicky Betts written, jam and the highlight of the album. Whipping Post is another great, cooking, original Greegg Allman composition.
