The Allman Brothers Band, Live From A&R Studios New York August 26 1971, Ltd Ed, 140 Gram Double Colored Vinyl, LP, 2022
On August 26, 1971, the unrivaled original line-up of The Allman Brothers Band set up in A&R Studios in NYC and played a scorching 67 minute set to a studio audience – and it was broadcast live over WPLJ-FM. It was a classic 1971-era set – “Statesboro Blues, ” “Trouble No More, ” “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’, ” “Done Somebody Wrong, ” “One Way Out, ” “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, ” “Stormy Monday, ” “You Don’t Love Me, ” “Soul Serenade” and closing with “Hot ‘Lanta.” Bootleg recordings of the FM broadcast have been around for years, but this release has been re-mixed from the original multi-track studio recording and the sound is absolutely stunning! Gatefold 2LP-set.
