Allman Brothers Band to Release The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings Box Set

The Allman Brothers Band have confirmed the upcoming release of their highly anticipated box set, The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings. ABB’s seminal live album At Fillmore East is set to get a makeover with 15 previously unreleased tracks from their March 12-13 and June 27, 1971 shows at the iconic New York City venue, including multiple renditions of “Whipping Post,” “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” “Statesboro Blues” and “One Way Out.”

The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings will also feature the entirety of the band’s June 27, 1971 gig, complete with the never-before-released introduction by Bill Graham. Another notable addition is the complete versions of the two takes on “You Don’t Love Me” that producer Tom Dowd combined for original At Fillmore East release.

The original At Fillmore East was recorded over the course of the The Allman Brothers Band’s March 11-13, 1971 shows at the Fillmore East. Venue owner (and all around famed rock music promoter) Bill Graham was so impressed by the band’s three-night run at the venue that he handpicked them to play the venue’s closing show on July 27, 1971.

The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings will be available on July 29. The box set can now be preordered in CD, LP and Blu-ray formats.

As previously reported, the Allman Brothers Band will be calling it quits after this year. The band has scheduled a finale run at New York City’s Beacon Theatre for October, as well as appearances the Peach and Lockn’ festivals.
