[***THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2-CD 2003 "DELUXE EDITION"*** THIS REVIEW IS NOT ABOUT THE 2014 SETS!!! I have no idea why Amazon is showing this review on a versions of AFE that I did not submit it for. Again this review is ONLY about the 2003 "Deluxe Edition" version! (The 2014 sets are AWESOME and FLAWLESS!) -DLM 7/30/14] _ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ You've probably noticed that there are at least two other versions of the ABB March 1971 gigs at the Fillmore East. So how is this one different? First, be aware that there are NO previously unreleased tracks (including the fact that there are no alternate versions, taken from different shows).
This version contains the entire original AT FILLMORE EAST album from July 1971 (still available in a one-disc edition). Specifically, I mean these are the EXACT same performances (and mix, I believe) featured on the original. Of course, this new set adds the extra Fillmore material that was later released on EAT A PEACH, DUANE ALLMAN AN ANTHOLOGY 1 & 2, and the DREAMS box set. Again, these are all the exact same versions of these songs.
At first glance, the new "Deluxe Edition" looks similar to 1992's THE FILLMORE CONCERTS, with the notable addition of "Midnight Rider," taken from ANTHOLOGY 2. However, THE FILLMORE CONCERTS contains several alternate versions of songs, and is completely remixed (controversial among fans, but provides an interesting comparison). These alternate versions are not available elsewhere, though this may be an issue only for fanatics like myself. THE FILLMORE CONCERTS also had the benefit of original producer Tom Dowd, who recently died.
I have a few problems with the new "Deluxe Edition." First, the edits are shoddy.

The Allman Brothers were master musicians, everyone well agrees. They wrote good enough songs, but their studio albums are for the most part quite good but not spectacular. There are a few occasions when they open up instrumentally, like in "Mountain Jam," and within limits on some shorter songs, but basic song structures are more the thing. However, there was that time at Fillmore East...
The songs on this CD, only seven, were originally in an album released as a double LP. Two of the tracks were long enough to each take up an entire LP side. Gregg Allman on keyboards, Dickie Betts on guitar, Berry Oakley on bass, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe Jai Johanny on percussion, do they ever jam and solo. And a man named Duane Allman, on guitar. I sometimes wonder if you sat down 1,000 people who had never heard this CD, played it for them, and asked them afterward whether they think Duane was a mere mortal, would any vote yes? Actually, my case is more rudimentary. I need only listen to "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed." I hold my breath when Gregg's shimmering organ following "Hot 'Lanta" introduces this incredible performance by Duane and the rest. When I mention my favorite Allman Brothers "song," I speak in terms of studio, saying "Jessica"--it is a wonderful instrumental, with good soloing, but within a basic structure. But this live version of "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed" is a step beyond, into free-flowing improvisation that confounds one's sense of the limitations of what can be achieved in music. Can anything be described as less limited in comparison to this display of sheer instrumental genius?

I got this album strictly out of curiosity. I was always *afraid* of The Allman Brothers Band because I thought of them as some ordinary Southern rock band (WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!). But after seeing this album rank in the VH1 "100 Greatest Rock and Roll Albums" list, and hearing what was said about it, I figured I'd at least like it.
Talk about exceeding expectations! And having a life-altering experience! Let's just say that my dreams of being a guitar god or being part of a extraordinary team of players is pretty much out the window. These guys put those to rest. Their gifts are pure, natural, and out of this world. But I thank them for giving me this.
I can't say anything more than what's been said. It's absolutely brilliant, breathtaking, and entrancing for its full 1 hour, 18 minutes, and 36 seconds. It is the most amazing blend of rock, blues, and jazz I've ever heard. The musicianship here is probably unparalleled in the history of rock music. And these guys played with the improvisational genius and intensity of our greatest of jazzmen. IT'S THAT GOOD.
When kids today talk about "trance" music, they talk about dance music. I tell them that this kind of stuff is my trance music. I just put this gem on and I'm out of this world for 1 hour, 18 minutes, and 36 seconds.
You cannot have a rock collection and be without this. You just cannot. It would be like having a jazz collection without any Miles Davis.

I cut my teeth on jamming listening to Cream. So the Allmans' Live was not a revelation just a stunning album and purchased on release in Australia. I know it all by heart -just burnt into the synapses.

In 1992 Tom Dowd did a full concert remix and remaster as "The Fillmore Concerts". This is where the controversy starts cause it sounds different and so it should - Tom transferred the original 16 track master tapes to digital and remixed. Taking advantage of the wider dynamic and frequency range, he produced a mix with the bass guitar stronger and drums clearer and more dynamic. Unfortunately the guitar freaks found the relatively lower level guitar sound unacceptable but the bass freaks loved Berry's sound (more bottom end).

Now we have the SACD stereo, multi-channnel and Audio Stereo remaster release of the original 2 record set accurately split over 2 cds. It should fit on one but there is marketing to us baby boomers. But I gotta say they did perform split sets so it does reasonably capture the night.

And more controversy - the stereo CD layer is a remix closer to the original LP release. Drums are further back but the bass guitar bottom end is retained. The tracks are identical to the original release but not on the SACD layer with the Fillmore Concert's "Stormy Monday" used, which is the unedited version including the harmonica break, and a different edit to end "Whipping Post". On the SACD layer the tympany start to "Mountain Jam" is rapidly faded out and applause overdubbed which is annoying if you want the sonic continuity when following up with the jam from the "Eat A Peach" SACD.
