We are so very lucky to have this show. The fact that Gregg Allman himself is alive, and makes an appearance makes it extra special. I was at the show, and was lucky enough to obtain an early copy of it. While there, the audience was so loud, so enthusiastic that you could barely hear the artists. Thankfully, this sympathetically done combo set changes that.

The show opened with Warran Haynes talking about Gregg before he launched into "Come and Go Blues". That bit of talking is lost. The CD version has almost none of the chatter that the artists made during the show. Fotunately, they put it it for the DVD. You get to see Gregg embrace the other artists, the very interesting comments Trace Adkins makes before and after his set, Robert Randolph and Taj Mahal exhort the audience to cheer. It's exciting to watch. While watching the DVD, you can't help but notice the smiles and winks and nods the artists give to each other. They are all so DAMN happy to be there, bringing Gregg's wonderful music to life in a new way. Even the normally stoic members of the Allman Brothers show some enthusiasm between songs, and especially during Whipping Post.

Now - onto the music. There is so much good music here, you'll almost be crying. The backing band is superb, with Chuck Leavell and Jack Pearson in particular offering jaw dropping solos during many of the songs. The set confirms my recollections of what were the best songs of the evening:" Can't lose what you never Had "and "Win Lose or Draw". Eric Church is literally jumping out of his skin, as he reinvents a forgotten ABB song. Watching the DVD you can see his energy as he brings the song to an aching close.

I've been listening to this for several days on my hour ride to and from work and I am just blown away.
I haven't felt like this about an "album" since I was young. It used to be that each year some of your favorite bands would drop an album in your lap, usually in the spring and you'd eagerly run out and grab it and listen to it nonstop for several days. It would change your entire outlook and each year the summer would have a new soundtrack. I mark the years of my youth this way.

There is nothing here that we haven't heard before but the occasion is filled with such a heartfelt appreciation for the songs that everything is elevated. If "Whipping Post" and "Sweet Melissa" are the metrics that Allman Brother's show are measured by then this is the best Allman Brothers show I've heard (and I've been to many). The Allman's have always been masters of epic guitar solos that evolve to magnificent crescendo's and their mastery has never been more in evidence than on this amazing double CD. The solos on Whipping Post literally make all the little hairs on my arms stand up and when each winds down and drops in your lap you can hear the crowd reaction. I find my self cheering likewise alone in my car. I mean it.

The guest performances do run the range from OK to transformative but there are no stinkers. It rare that even on a single CD there isn't something that I hit the next button on. Not here. I'm not typically a fan of mainstream country music but Vince Gil and Martina McBride do a great job here. Dr John is fabulous as always. The list goes on and on. Heck I don't even mind the Trace Atkins tracks.

The thing about the guest spots is that so many of the performances are delivered with the utmost passion for the material.

I can’t even control myself to get to the detail of how great this lifetime package for any true Allman Brothers fan is… without immediately telling you to buy it! Buy it for you… buy it and save a copy for a XMAS gift… or a fellow fans birthday you know is coming up. This total package is an absolute steal at the current price. The audio CD’s are about 2 ˝ hours as is the beautifully shot DVD. (Yes… the DVD is the full copy of the 2 audio CD’s!)

As a longtime Allman Brothers fan… I’m sure like all of you… I have many… many… CD’s that have numerous songs that overlap… and are repeated on different CD’s. With other artists that may start becoming a problem.. but as we AB fans know… the old saying regarding our boys is.. “they never play the same song… the same way… twice!” And that’s a given… but even so… when you start listening… and hearing our old favorites… that we may have on two or three different CD’s… and it is performed by innumerable famous artists… from every walk of musical life… (along with Gregg on a few)… the following sensations will overpower you… on a few… I actually laughed out loud… because it was like getting a new gift on each song… due to one song being sung by a famous country singer with a real deep voice… the next classic being sung… by a famous singer with a high-pitched voice… every one done exquisitely. Some songs were done so beautifully… my eyes actually misted up.

It would be unfair to single out one performer as being better than another… mainly because… as each new song came up… it seemed better than the previous one… but I actually started listening to the CD from the last disc… and then jumped to the DVD and started from the beginning… and I’m telling you from my heart that… the song that I thought was the best… was just topped!
