I would sneak into my brothers room and listen over and over. I love Dickie, Duane, and Gregg but to me the one who shined on this album was Barry on bass. Can't go wrong buying this Album! In my humble opinion,the Brothers Fillmore concerts are the greatest live recordings ever made. If this album does not prove that point,then you obviously need ear surgery.
My first Allman brothers CD and it is a classic rock n blues live release. I'm doing my research to pick a few more. Musical Talented Men Best live recording, nice guitar licks, and variety of songs ,many will remind you of Stevie Ray Vaughan A lot of talented guys playing their heart out on this!
