The Allman Brothers Close Out Mountain Jam with First Two Albums
The Allman Brothers Band closed out Mountain Jam last night by performing their first two albums, The Allman Brothers Band and Idlewild South. The group started things off by playing Idlewild South, their second LP, in its entirety during the first half of the set, with Gregg Allman solo band keyboardist Peter Levin sitting in on “Please Call Home.” ABB then worked their way through their eponymous debut (sans “Every Hungry Woman”) throughout the second half of the set before encoring with a “Statesboro Blues,” the first track from their third release, At Fillmore East, that also featured Levin.
The Allman Brothers Band will return to the stage in August when they play two nights at The Peach Music Festival in Scranton, PA. The band are set to perform their third studio album (and fourth overall release) Eat A Peach at that event.
As previously reported, The Allman Brothers Band will only play eight more shows before calling it quits later this year. The group will perform at Peach Fest and Lockn’ this summer, and six-night farewell run i scheduled for The Beacon Theatre in October.
