Editorial Reviews

They say you never forget your first time.

For nearly 25 years, traveling to New York s Beacon Theatre to see The Allman Brothers Band play a stretch of high-spirited live shows has become a rite of passage for fans old and new. What began as a daring ten-night run at the acclaimed venue is now a symbiotic relationship between a band, a venue and a devoted fan base, the likes of which are virtually unprecedented in rock and roll history.

Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992, is a new two-disc set showcasing The Allman Brothers Band s very first time playing such an extended run at the Beacon.

In more than four decades together, The Allman Brothers Band have faced personal setbacks and enjoyed monumental reinventions in the studio and on the road. The announcement of a 20th anniversary tour in 1989, after a seven year hiatus from recording or performing, made even the most faithful fans wonder how the band could rise again.

But the group was doing much more than merely reuniting. Founding members Gregg Allman (vocals/keyboards), Dickey Betts (guitar), Butch Trucks and Jaimoe (drums) were joined by a trio of talented up-and-comers: Allen Woody on bass, Marc Quinones on percussion, and Warren Haynes on guitar. The hiring of Haynes, a then little-known guitarist who'd toured with Betts, was a considerable stroke of genius; his guitar approach heavily evoked the spirit of Duane Allman's playing, drawing a clear line from the band's past to its future.

That reunion tour saw The Brothers first take the Beacon's stage for an extended run - a residency that s now a tradition for both band and venue. The band would tape two of their 10 shows at the theater in March 1992. Amazingly, material from these electrifying shows has seen virtually no release - until now.

In the spirit of The Allmans iconic 1971 live album At Fillmore East, Play All Night showcases Allman, Betts, Trucks, Jaimoe, Haynes, Woody and Quinones taking the Beacon's stage by storm. Through their most-requested songs, deep cuts and new favorites, the Allmans expertly showcase that unmistakable raw energy - at once practiced and spontaneous - that still make them one of the most beloved live acts. Play All Night will feature new liner notes by John Lynskey, editor of official ABB magazine Hittin' The Note, and onstage photos by longtime band photographer Kirk West, to further immerse audiences into the story behind these captivating sets.

Whether you've never experienced the magic of The Allman Brothers Band at the Beacon Theatre or you're eagerly planning for next year's shows, Play All Night is a first time you ll want to re-live over and over again.

As an absolute lover of Electric Blues… and within that rarefied category… an avid fan of the Allman Brothers… the only hesitation I had before I ordered this CD… was the fear of getting a product that did not stand up to today’s sound quality. I’m not talking about the talent of the Allman Brothers… that is unquestioned… I’m referring to some of these old remake-reissues… that sound like they were recorded with a rusty nail… through a wool army blanket! I’m very happy to report that the sound quality is excellent. This is a can’t miss… must buy for all Allman Brothers fans… for the lovers of Electric Blues… for lovers of Southern Blues Rock… and lovers of good old Rock And Roll. This double CD provides over sixty minutes of cookin’ music on one CD… and over seventy-five minutes on the second CD.

The instrumentation… and the voices… are purely at the top of their game. There is a multi-page foldout liner note piece… that is pretty interesting as these type of things go. If you read it before playing… I believe it will add to the feeling of “time-and-place”.

In summation… this is “LIVE” music… played the way it was meant to be… by one of the greatest live groups in the last 50 years… you will be sorry if you wait before ordering!

Just when I think I have all the live ABB recordings I need, something like "Play All Night" shows up. You have to ask why it's taken 22 years for this to see the light of day, but be that as it may, this is an essential ABB release. Dickey Betts is here and he's in top form. Warren Haynes is a more than worthy counterpart. Gregg sounds fresh and rejuvenated. We'll never hear this lineup again ( Allen Woody is dead, Betts has burned his bridges, and Haynes is leaving next year ) so this is must-hear ABB for those who love the Betts/Haynes combination, and I do. No, it isn't "Fillmore East" but it doesn't need to be. It stands just fine on it's own and you'll find yourself wanting repeated listenings to " Play All Night ". The ABB, with the departure of Haynes and Derek Trucks, will probably retire, so get this one while you can. You won't regret it !

For the hundreds of Allman Brothers fans who claim to have shouted out those infamous words "play all night" and to the thousands who will tell you they were there when that seminal live album was recorded, I too have been waiting decades for a live Allman Brothers album to rival Live At Fillmore East. Well I'm thrilled to say it's finally here. Now that's not to say that "Wipe The Windows".., "Peakin' At The Beacon", "An evening With"... were mediocre offerings. They all have their moments, but none really give you that, wow, wish I were there, did they ever smoke the roof off that place, best they've sounded in years, kinda' feeling. And what really makes these recordings so special is hearing sweet ole' Dickey Betts nailing Blue Sky, Revival, Elizabeth Reed and Jessica. Sure Derek Trucks is an incredible talent. As a guitarist, I'd go so far as to say that technically he's better than Dickey. But how in the world can you replace an original founding member of this great band. Listen to all that he brings to the party. His swagger, his take no prisoners attitude, his southern pride all come across in his playing and his singing and most of all in his songwriting. Derek Trucks recently announced that he's leaving The Allman Brothers to pursue his own thing full time with wife Susan Tedeschi. Now don't you think it's about time that Gregg and Dickey buried the hatchet and made amends? They owe it to their fans who've been waiting all these years to bring back the intensity and the fire that is so evident on Play All Night...It truly takes me back to the day...I LOVE IT!!!

...to a filthier, cheaper time in New York City. David Dinkins was Mayor, and his "Safe Streets" program (with its thousands of rookie cops) was beginning to take hold...subways covered with graffiti, streets overflowing with garbage. The Beacon was not yet owned by MSG, but was in artful decline, like the Upper West Side neighborhood it resides in. The Allman Brothers Band made annual trips to the Beacon that morphed into "residencies", selling out a couple of weeks of shows in a row and giving the roadies a break. Bands love the Beacon for its heritage, acoustics, great backstage vibe and for the audiences who come to the shows. This collection will take you back, with a set list from the prime Beacon Theatre days. Butch and the boys sound in very good form. I'm not going to over-analyze it...it's music for lovers...of long Allman Brothers jams, slick guitar work and tight percussion. This two-disc set is the perfect edition for the rookie or veteran fan, especially in light of the announcement that the 2014 residency at the Beacon marks the last rodeo for the ABB.

A little insight here ..... I take my music very seriously, been an aficionado for 40 years now. I know when I here good music being played, no matter what genre it is. Everyone has their favorite decade/genre, but when you are reviewing music, you don't nessecarily have to like it, but it should be reviewed on its merits, not personal preference. 5 star ratings are handed out on here like candy. 5 stars are for masterpieces, music that belongs in any righteous music collection. The rating system is so plagiarized, it makes it difficult to decipher the actual quality of the music you'd like to learn more about. And with that being said......
This is a masterpiece of live music ! To truly rate music, it should be listened to repeatedly, give it a chance to soak in. I've been listening to this for a couple of months now and as the critics would say, "The Brothers are firin' on all cylinders here". That's no lie. Dickie Betts really gets his due on here, playing like a mad man at times. Good stuff. The big, full, rich sound of the Allman Brothers live, the big chugging rhythm section, precise twin guitar attack and Greg's growlin' blues vocals are on full display here. Others will do a good job on here, giving a detailed analysis of this album, so I'll just close by saying ...... This is a very close second to At Fillmore East and the sound quality is excellent.

I have seen the Allman Brothers 4 times in recent years, and they sound a lot better here than any of those shows.
