Jeff’s Playlist: At Fillmore East

The Allman Brothers Band —At Fillmore East

This is the orig­i­nal release of The Allman Brothers Band’s Fillmore East con­certs. There have been many re-releas­es with addi­tion­al songs, but this is where it all start­ed. It’s a good album full of great musi­cian­ship. If you’ve nev­er heard this (where have you been?), you’ll love it. 

If you like the Allman Brothers, this is them at their best. Sit back and enjoy.
