There will come a time when the current Allman Brothers Band line-up-- originals Gregg Allman (keys/vox), Jaimoe (dms), Butch Trucks (dms), plus Derek Trucks (gtr), Warren Haynes (gtr/vox), Oteil Burbridge (bass/sometimes vox), and Marc Quinones (perc/backing vox)-- will be universally hailed as the second classic line-up of this band. Haynes and Trucks are two of the greatest, hottest guitar players of our time, and it is hard to fathom that there is enough room in one band for both of them to shine. Haynes began his second stint in the band in March 2001, the last piece to the puzzle of this configuration, and within 2 years they had begun to alight into a realm of improvisational, smoldering jazzy blues that is truly magical.

Of course the best way to appreciate this band is live, and in September 2004 they touched down in Atlanta for a 3-night run at the beautiful Fox Theater. Thanks to the Instant Live program, these three shows were captured for posterity. It was a fantastic run-- I was at all 3 shows-- and if you have the bandwidth and appetite to consume a live 9-disc set, this will charm and delight and surprise you for years to come.

Over the course of these three nights, the band repeats only one song: "Dreams," which was played each show. But as Warren Haynes pointed out after the third show, "even those are all different"-- because a different player each night takes the extended and lyrical guitar solo that creates the drama and tension of the piece. The first night it is guest and former band member Jackie Pearson; the second night it is Derek Trucks; and the final night, Haynes steps out and shovels coal on the fire. And indeed, each player tells the musical story of the song in a different way.

The middle show (9/25) is the real keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad Skydogs & Free Birds October 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Having recently read "Skydog", the late Duane Allman new highly informative biograpy, i was compelled to go back and taste some of the Allman Brothers old standbys. "The Fillmore Concerts" and "Eat a peach" immediatley came to mind, particularly since Duane still burns live on them. But even an old goat who's been glued to the Allmans since the late 60's, can reach a point in which he predicts the next bottle slide on Duane's Gibson and Dickey Betts response riff. it doesn't get boring necessarily. it gets predictable. Which is one roadmark on the way to classic rock's funeral.

Browsing through ABB's category on AMAZON, I cam across "Instant Live: The Fox Box". Nine (count them!) discs of two performances in Atlanta, Georgia. The price, 90$, seemed a bit steep, but i was quick to do the math: 10$ a disc. Call me crazy. Call me the Breeze. But i'm the lunatic who'd pay 10 dollars to hear Gregg Allman singing the "Band"'s "The Night they Drove Old Dixie Down". Not only for removing the confedracy's flag from four Canadians and one American who gave it to us. But to hear the Allmans - in Atlanta of all places - make it their own. God bless Levon Helm and his sweet soulful voice, but the mature, sober and gravelly Allman, gives "Dixie" a brand new dimension. With the great Warren Haynes wailing on the right track while gallantly making way for Derek Trucks sliding on the left, the Allmans tear through most of their own repertoire, even manhandling Betts' "Blue Sky", which means war.

But the greatness of this particular exciting box-set is what the Allmans do to old "Derek & the Dominos" numbers, where Eric Clapton And Duane founded the twin guitars solidarity movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! December 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The other reviews give a pretty good detail of this product, so I won't say too much except that I am very happy with this product. It IS the Fox Box, so I'm not sure what one of the previous reviewers meant. Also, as I write this review, there is only one left (through Amazon), by a supplier that wants around $250US for this product. I think that's greedy as its not exactly a collectors item (as in a RARITY). Oh well, that's the free market isn't it? And we don't HAVE to purchase it from them, do we? Hell, I purchased mine direct from the ABB site for $75US (excluding P&P). They are nearly out of the Fox Box too, but you can still purchase each individual show for $25US, so its readily available folks!

This paragraph has been added to my review since soaking up the blistering performances on the Fox Box over the weekend. I say blistering because that's an apt description of these performances by ABB. I coulda said "Sizzling". I don't believe a live band can get any better than these guys in full flight. My wife said "But you've already got these songs". My reply was "Yes, but listen to these versions of them!!!" I mean, take "Done Somebody Wrong". It's got a little jazzy groove to it. And ya never know what's going to happen in the solo breaks. Loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not 'Fox Box', but still a good buy! August 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Fox Box is a 3 night run at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta Georgia, on Sept. 24, 25 & 26th, 2004. The shows listed hear are all great shows, and it is a good price. If jam band music is your thing, ABB is as good as it gets!
