Two CD live archival release. This double disc set captures a phenomenal performance by the version of the Allman Brothers Band that recorded the classic album Brothers And Sisters. Rebounding from the tragic losses of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, the ABB was once again hittin' the note in the spring of 1973, and Nassau Coliseum 5/1/73 captures this important segment of Allman Brothers history. This release harkens back to the time when the ABB was commonly referred to as the "best damn band in the land," and is loaded throughout with incendiary performances. Play it often, and play it loud.

For me the best music here is the You Don't Love Me merging into Les Brers In A Minor; Chuck's piano really adds a lot to the original. And this version of Mountain Jam is freaking awesome, especially Lamar's bass solo played along with Butch and Jaimoe's amazing drumming. Really, this band is HOT here, two years after recording Fillmore with Duane and Berry, 18 months after losing Duane, and only six months after losing Berry. How the hell did they do it? As Butch said, Duane gave them the religion, and they had to keep it going. And so they did. This is The Brothers still riding the crest of the wave that began with Fillmore two years earlier. They still had the religion, and they had some great new music and some great new musicians. Sadly it all faded after this era, but such is life, in and out of the world of music.
The sound quality here isn't too bad at all, though I wish such a superb performance was as well-recorded as Fillmore. This version of the band deserves it. They were great - still the best band in America. RIP Duane, and Berry, and Lamar.
