2. The Allman Brothers Band - 'At Fillmore East'
Just seven months before Duane Allman tragically died in a motorcycle accident, the Allman Brothers Band played a triumphant three-night stand at New York's Fillmore East. Thankfully, tapes were rolling and they captured a blazing hot set, culminating with a twenty-three minute rendition of "Whipping Post." The group has released the shows on many releases over the years, most notably the 1971 LP At Fillmore East. It remains the definite portrait of the Allman Brothers in their first (and best) incarnation.
