Product Description

This two-CD set won't cause you to throw out your copy of Fillmore East, but it is at very least a worthy companion to that 1971 classic. Recorded the previous year at the famed Cincinnati venue (but not released until 1991), Ludlow catches the band in the moments just before their peak. Some of the material will be familiar to fans, but this collection adds gems such as John Lee Hooker's "Dimples" and the blues classic "I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town" to their recorded repertoire. And if you thought the 33-minute "Mountain Jam" on Eat a Peach was extensive, you need to hear Ludlow's 44-minute version, which comprises the entire second CD. --Marc Greilsamer

Recorded nearly a year before AT FILLMORE EAST, LUDLOW GARAGE captures the original Allman Brothers Band in its early days - if a career of just over two years could be considered thus divisible - exploring a relatively straightforward rock and blues mode which frequently hints at the transcendent heights they would soon achieve onstage.

Fans will recognize most or all of the tunes here, of course; but as always the songs themselves are simply launch pads for the Brothers' boundless flights, which even at this stage were quite possibly the greatest jams rock music had to offer. The signature "Statesboro Blues" here gains a lengthy slide guitar coda by Duane Allman which I've never heard elsewhere; and "Mountain Jam," while not nearly as astounding as the version on EAT A PEACH, nevertheless impresses with its sheer mass, clocking in at a remarkable forty-four non-stop minutes. Other treats are the rather rare "Dreams" and "Every Hungry Woman," two songs from the band's eponymous debut album, the former featuring eerily beautiful slide work from Duane and the latter a tight, rocking ensemble performance. A churning "Hoochie Coochie Man" lets the drum team of Butch Trucks and J. Johanny Johannson cook up some thunder, while "I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town," another seldom-heard blues cover, spotlights Brother Gregg's fine vocals.

While the sound quality on LUDLOW isn't equal to that of most official live releases, it's strongly recommended for anyone who's gotten into the music of this phenomenal and sadly underrecorded group of musicians. The Fillmore shows (and the recordings made from them) were undoubtedly superior, but there's plenty here you can't get there.

OK, so the sound quality is gruesome by today's standards (and I've subtracted a star for it). But the "feel" of this record is as authentic as it gets. I was always a big fan of the band and lamented that I never saw them while Duane and Berry were alive (I think I saw the Chuck Leavell piano-rich version in the mid 70s). Anyhow, this album takes you there. "Dreams" hits a fantastic groove, and the rest of the cuts on the first disc are reminiscent of the material on "Fillmore East."
But, believe it or not, it's the "Mountain Jam" that keeps bringing me back to this record. I was not a big fan of the jam on "Eat a Peach." Maybe it was because you had to flip the record to play the whole thing (shows you how old I am). Maybe it was because the rest of that album was so unbelievably great. But on "Ludlow" the Jam flows effortlessly through several phases with surprisingly different feels. It never lags, even during the drum solo. The official reviewer on this page claims that this jam can be found elsewhere in the Allmans catalogue. Now I'm not dead-certain about this, but I'm pretty sure this is a different version than the one on "Peach."
Anyhow, if you're an Allmans fan, and if, like me, you love "Fillmore East," get this album. It's like you were really in the Ludlow Garage.

I often think that recordings of artist serve two purposes if they are live. Firstly as a memento of the show we experienced if we were fortunate enough to be there. Second as a means of communicating to those who were not able to be in attendance to get some idea of what the show was like.
Other than a band like the Grateful dead who cared so much about the quality of their live shows, most performers strive to achieve a comparable sound to that of their studio recordings. Indeed I am sure that the fans of people like B. Spears expect nothing less than to hear their idol perform the songs in exactly the same way as they were meant to be heard on the record. Then there are bands like the Allmans for whom the live performance is the crucial part of their musicianship, jamming, improvising trying to play their very souls and in doing so bringing the audience on board and carrying them to ecstasy.
Having said that there are recording glitches aplenty with live recordings and the sound may be less than perfect but what shines through, loud and clear is the sheer quality and finess of the performance. This is captured here in the equivalent of a home movie of an awesome band. The tracks may have been heard in different versions before but what is important is what happened on that night and how it came across to the audience.
The quality of the recording is not as good as the Filmore but you know what, this is exquisite testimony to a band that shows that they could go out, night after night and continually deliver such high quality, high soulfullnes music.

My favorite period of the ABB's music is the original 1969-1974 lineup (minus Duane and Berry when they died in those years). Live, their recordings from this era cannot be beat by any other incarnation. That being said, Live at Ludlow Garage 1970 is a raw early document of the Brothers just flat out playing! Check out the 8-minute Statesboro Blues, the incendiary versions of Dreams, Hoochie Coochie Man, and Trouble No More, not to mention live rarity Dimples, Every Hungry Woman, and I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town. The show concludes with a 44-minute version of Mountain Jam. While I don't listen to this song every time I put this album on, it's a great version that really cooks and is worth a listen every once and a while. There isn't a single weak track on this album and the sound, while raw, is loud, clear, and great. Essential listening for any ABB fan or fan of great late 1960s/early 1970s rock music.
