    The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East on Numbered Limited Edition 180g Vinyl 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Telepathically Executed Double Album At Fillmore East Among Ten-Best Live Records Ever Made


    Ranks #49 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time List: Includes Epic Takes of Whipping Post and In Memory of Elizabeth Reed


    Peerless Sonics: Mobile Fidelity Analog Reissue Provides Fifth-Row Seat to Historic March 1971 Concerts


    Fillmore East is synonymous with some of the greatest concerts ever staged. Yet the venue belongs to one group: The Allman Brothers Band. This groundbreaking double album is why. As the collective's breakthrough, it broadcasts to the world wowing improvisational flights and seamless musical fusion the likes of which no one had ever heard. In communion with the crowd, the band establishes an interactive blueprint for all shows that followed, while its high-wire displays of powerhouse soloing and time-stretching arrangements remain the stuff of hall-of-fame legend.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed on dead-quiet vinyl RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 2LP of At Fillmore East joins the unparalleled reissue imprint's other Allman titles in presenting the inimitable ensemble's music in the most lifelike, uncompromising fidelity possible. Myriad versions of the 1971 set exist, yet none possesses the audiophile sensibilities found here - sonic traits that whisk the listener to the midst of the Fillmore East for four gigs performed on March 12 and 13, 1971, plunking them down in a fifth-row seat surrounded by fervent fans and a smoke-filled atmosphere. Every slippery bottleneck note, every aching vocal moan, every soulful purr from the organ, every gritty interlocking riff comes across with unfettered clarity and realism.


    While the record features multiple works the band never laid down in a studio, At Fillmore East is a meticulously conceived affair. The Allmans prepped rough sketches and layouts of the tunes, carving out spaces for each member's solos, and leaving the direction of such entirely up to the individual. As a result, the effort - anchored by iconic producer Tom Dowd's stellar production - presents a jazz-drifting rock band benefiting from both a sense of assured direction as well as opportunistic freedom.


    Indeed, At Fillmore East is the rare sound of a group letting it all go, fearlessly maneuvering through bluesy shuffles, exquisite laments, graceful instrumental passages, and frenetic swamp-laden boogies. Achieved via a combination of virtuosic skill, visionary ambition, and natural chemistry, the six-piece burns white-hot with intensity and persuades via a padlock-tight rhythm section on which Duane's searing slide playing and Gregg's bottom-of-the-stomach vocals glide, each aural utterance coaxing on their respective mates to strive for new heights.

    Idlewild South (Awaiting Repress) (On Sale)

    Idlewild South, the sophomore release from America's sovereign Southern rock band the Allman Brothers, is easily their greatest studio album. Unlike the band's labyrinthine live shows, which are distinguished by their immense, walloping swamp rock, this album focuses on the considerable songwriting capabilities of Gregg Allman and Dicky Betts. Plus, it showcases the bands original lineup, before multiple tragedies began taking their toll: The lightning slide guitar of Duane Allman, the vocals and Hammond B-3 of his brother Greg Allman, lead guitarist Dickey Betts, bassist Berry Oakley, and the thunderous drum tandem of Butch Trucks and Jaimoe Johanson. This album lays bare their talent for weaving disparate but distinctly Southern elements of rock, gospel, soul, jazz, and R&B into a cohesive and original whole. The legendary Engineer/Producer Tom Dowd oversaw these sessions, which resulted in the Bible-thumping Revival, the smash hit Midnight Rider, the dirty blues of Don't Keep Me Wonderin', the soul-soothing Please Call Home, and the legendary In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, which would go on to become the penultimate Allman Brothers' concert war-horse.

    Southern Blood (Awaiting Repress)

    Hardwood Colored Vinyl

    SOUTHERN BLOOD serves as a remarkable final testament from an artist whose contributions have truly shaped rock & roll throughout the past four decades. This is Allman's first all-new recording since 2011's GRAMMY® Award-nominated solo landmark, LOW COUNTRY BLUES.

    Produced by Don Was and recorded in Muscle Shoals where Duane Allman and the earliest seeds of the Allman Brothers Band were sown, Southern Blood is among the most uniquely personal of the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer's career. This emotionally expansive collection of songs written by friends and favorite artists including Jackson Browne, Willie Dixon, Jerry Garcia & Robert Hunter, Lowell George and Spooner Oldham & Dan Penn serves as a salutary farewell to his legion of devoted fans and admirers.

    First run limited edition LP comes in deluxe gatefold packaging is pressed on heavyweight specialty hardwood colored vinyl and includes an exclusive portrait lithograph.

    Eat A Peach


    Remastered From Original Analog Tapes


    Cut On Copper Plates Using Abbey Road Mastering's Direct DMM Lathe


    Faithfully Restored Artwork


    Eat A Peach is the third studio album from the Allman Brothers and was originally released in February of 1972. It
    has been remastered from original analog tapes by Keven Reeves (Brothers And Sisters, The 1971 Fillmore East
    Recordings) to 192kHz 24-bit audio and then cut on copper plates using Abbey Road Mastering's Direct Metal
    Mastering (DMM) lathe. This title is being issued on 180g, heavy weight vinyl. The original artwork has been
    faithfully reproduced as well.


    Having firmly established themselves as The Grateful Dead of the South via their enormously successful 1971 Live at the Fillmore East double album, the Allman Brothers had just begun work on a new studio collection when slide guitarist Duane Allman died in a motorcycle accident. Undaunted, the group rallied together and completed Eat a Peach, which, via inclusion of the 34-minute-plus Mountain Jam, blossomed into a double LP. While keyboardist-singer Gregg Allman shone on tracks like Sonny Boy Williamson's One Way Out and his own Melissa, it was second guitarist Dickey Betts who came out from under the departed Allman's shadow with his lead vocal on Blue Sky and his incendiary playing throughout. -Billy Altman

    Brothers Of The Road

    Includes Insert With Song Lyrics


    The Allman Brothers Band is best known for their typical Southern Rock sound and incorporating elements of blues, jazz and country music. Their eight studio album Brothers Of The Road originally came out in 1981 and was produced by John Ryan who did production work for Styx and The Doobie Brothers.


    The single Straight From The Heart from the album became their first top 40 hit since their heyday. It peaked at #39 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #11 on Billboard's Rock Top Tracks chart.

    Almost The Eighties - Vol. 2

    WLIR-FM Live Show Broadcast At Nassau Coliseum - Uniondale, NY On December 30th, 1979

    Limited To 500 Copies

    Between August 1975 and May 1976, the Allman Brothers Band played to some of the biggest crowds of their career. Gradually, however, the members of the band grew apart during these tours, with sound checks and rehearsals apparently becoming a thing of the past. The shows were considered lackluster and the members were excessive in their drug use. As a result, the band finally broke up.

    In 1978 moves were afoot to reunite the band, augmented by new guitarist Dan Toler and bassist David Goldflies, to record the much celebrated Enlightened Rogues album, and return to touring. The album was released in February and the recording featured here with the new line-up came on the night before New Year's Eve of the same year - for the record, fact fans, on the actual NYE, the band was performing in New Haven, Connecticut.

    The new line up is captured here in superb revitalized form, at the Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY on the 30th December 1979, a show broadcast live by WLIR-FM, and presented here complete across 2 installments.

    This double live album features performances from their popular 1973 album, Brothers And Sisters and each of their

    No Allman Brothers Band fan should pass up Wipe the Windows, which is a most solid live album, and, in particular, a better representation of the songs off of Brothers and Sisters and Win, Lose or Draw than the original studio versions. Southbound, Ramblin' Man, Jessica, and, to a lesser degree, Wasted Words come off exceptionally well. - Bruce Eder (All Music Guide)

    Skydog: The Duane Allman Retrospective

    Limited To 1000


    Duane Allman was one of the defining musicians of our era, rated second only to Jimi Hendrix in Rolling Stone's list of rock's 100 greatest guitarists. A founding member, with his brother Gregg, of the Allman Brothers Band, Duane was also active as a session musician, and as a member of the all-star Derek and the Dominos.


    This 14 LP set, produced by Duane's daughter Galadrielle Allman and esteemed reissue producer Bill Levenson, shows the full breadth and depth of Duane's work, from early recordings (with Gregg) in bands such as The Escorts, Allman Joys and Hour Glass; to his studio work with Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Boz Scaggs, Delaney & Bonnie, Ronnie Hawkins and many others; to a live jam session with the Grateful Dead. The set includes several unreleased performances, many classic Allman Brothers songs, and a collector's cache of rare singles and long out-of-print album tracks.


    Also included are a 56 page book with essays by Scott Schindler and Galadrielle Allman, many rare photographs & more.

    Taking The Biscuit

    Lynyrd Skynyrd were performing in the UK in late 1975, on a tour promoting their third studio record, Nuthin' Fancy. The band were coming off two hugely successful albums, their debut, Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd and 1974's Second Helping. This show features Lynyrd Skynyrd in an environment where they felt comfortable and were at the top of their game. With the exception of the Allman Brothers, most southern rock bands had stayed away from the U.K. during this period because the country's music scene was so wrapped up in glam, pub-rock and the emerging punk scene. But that didn't scare Skynyrd, who confidently played their brand of riff-driving southern fried rock boogie to crowds around the British Isles.

    Live at Fillmore East

    Ranked 49/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Considered by many to be one of the greatest live albums of all time, this classic album by the Allman Brothers, recorded at the pinnacle of their success, was a huge hit for the band. In 1971, the Allman Brothers were already one of the most popular groups in America, but by the time this album hit the streets their brand of Southern rock had become a national obsession. Live At Fillmore East was also the band's last with guitar hero Duane Allman who was killed in a motorcycle accident later that year.

    Brothers and Sisters on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP from Mobile Fidelity


    1973 Affair Introduces Southern Rock to Popular Parlance


    Unrivaled Sonics: Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Mobile Fidelity Edition Provides Window Into What Transpired in Macon Studios


    Dickey Betts Leads Group Through Mellower Country Rock, Pairs With Pianist Chuck Leavell


    Chart-Topping Album Includes Smash "Ramblin' Man" and Favorites "Jessica" and "Southbound"


    Brothers and Sisters is significant for myriad reasons. It's the first album the Allman Brothers Band made in its entirety after Duane Allman's death. It also came after bassist Berry Oakley's spookily similar passing, yet he appears on two of the songs. The 1973 set also marks the emergence of guitarist Dickey Betts as the collective's leader. And pianist Chuck Leavell's arrival. But for than anything else, the record remains noteworthy for its incredible soulfulness and completeness.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on dead-quiet vinyl RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180 gram LP of Brothers and Sisters joins the unparalleled reissue imprint's other Allman titles in presenting the superlative ensemble's work in the most lifelike, uncompromised fidelity possible. Whether it's the feather-light harmonic layering of the collective's background vocals, echoing cavity of Leavell's gospel-tinted piano, skin-against-skin smack of Jaimoe's congas, or sweet dobro lines laid down by Betts, this version betters all previous pressings by bringing you, the listener, as close to the studio as any record feasibly can.


    Having stayed at the top of the Billboard charts for five consecutive weeks, Brothers and Sisters constitutes the Allman Brothers Band's biggest commercial triumph. Given the circumstances surrounding its creation, such an accomplishment hardly seemed possible. Fresh from licking their wounds over Duane's tragic motorcycle accident, the group experienced dÉjà vu when Oakley met the same fate just blocks away from where his mate was killed. Rather than collapse, the Allman Brothers Band tightened up and mellowed out, inviting Leavell to join instead of recruiting another guitarist.


    What the sextet gets in return for its troubles is music that marks the concrete beginnings of a form that soon become known as Southern rock. Leavell and Betts exchange notes as if the pair has been trading ideas since they were children. Slide guitars still tread over greasy grooves, yet the Allman Brothers Band digs deeper into country dirt, parlaying a twang anchored by Betts' picking and abetted by Gregg's organic, shot-of-blues vocals. The laidback vibe manifests on the signature "Ramblin' Man," a hit evocative of the record's breezy melodies and friendly interplay.


    The cover art further reveals the Allman Brothers Band's mindset. Golden, tranquil, idyllic, Southern, loving: It's a paradise-longing view that would soon come crashing down in the group's lives but one that, for the duration and existence of Brothers and Sisters, remains gloriously undisturbed.

    Eat A Peach (On Sale)

    Allman Brothers Band Eat a Peach on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    1972 Double LP Split Between Live and Studio Fare


    Last Appearance of Fallen Member Duane Allman on an Official Release


    Sonic Spectacular: Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Mobile Fidelity Edition Captures Grit of Live Tracks and Organic Soul of Studio Cuts


    Includes Standout 33-Minute-Plus Epic "Mountain Jam"


    Features Complete, Accurate Reproduction of Gatefold Artwork


    Tributes to fallen icons don't come any more poignant or illustrative than Eat a Peach. Released in early 1972, slightly more than three months after guitarist Duane Allman died in a motorcycle accident, the double album honors the musician via sides he recorded in the studio as well as several live performances that didn't fit on the mammoth At Fillmore East. The Allman Brothers Band, determined to press on, also contributes a trio of songs completed after their soulmate's passing. Its execution is near perfect, its concept timeless.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on dead-quiet vinyl RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180 gram 2LP of Eat a Peach joins the unparalleled reissue imprint's other Allman titles in presenting the superlative ensemble's work in the most lifelike, uncompromising fidelity possible. Not only is the punch of the concert fare transmitted with full-range dynamics and realistic spaciousness, but the studio cuts-in particular, the acoustically framed "Melissa" and "Little Martha"-come through with astounding clarity and body, replete with textural richness that affords listeners images of fingers on frets and sticks hitting drum skins.


    In all probability, the Allman Brothers Band would've leapt to the fore of music's commercial and critical elite had it not been for Duane's fateful motorcycle accident that altered history and the trajectory of the group's course. A statement of purpose and homage, Eat a Peach extends the guitarist's legacy in the form of three heart-racing live tunes recorded at Fillmore East, none more important than the nearly 34-minute harmonic showcase "Mountain Jam." Begun at the end of "Whipping Post" during the final show of the group's four-gig stand, the tour de force improvisation finds the band at the peak of its telepathic aural and communicative capacities.


    Not that the three studio originals with Duane are by any means forgettable. "Blue Sky" epitomizes the gorgeously elegant colors with which the late virtuoso could paint while the heart-stopping sentimental feel of "Little Martha" finds just he and Dickey Betts engaged in spiritual communion. To this extent, the band continues a mellower vibe on the hit "Melissa," a country-rock ballad that taps into a melancholy feel largely courtesy of Gregg Allman's weary vulnerability and Betts' lyrical, slap-back-echoing guitar lines.


    Yet nothing here eclipses the direct meaning and steadfast intent of the record-opening "Ain't Wastin' Time No More," a defiant showing of unity and understated anthem with which the band seemed to embrace as a motto. No one knew, however, that fate would again subvert the group's plans even if it could never take away the magic held within Eat a Peach, sonic and lyrical sorcery that extends to the legendary gatefold-artwork mural.

    Waiting For Columbus (Awaiting Repress) (On Sale)

    When you think about great live albums, several immediately come to mind. The Whos Live at Leeds. James Browns Live at the Apollo. The Allman Brothers Bands Live at Fillmore East. Kiss Alive! Nirvanas Unplugged. And, while it is sometimes unjustifiably forgotten, Little Feats Waiting for Columbus. The last essential album the rootsy California band made, it stands as the groups peak accomplishmenta staggering confluence of energetic performances, skilled improvisations, and thematic expansion.


    Joined onstage by the Tower of Power horn section, Little Feat accentuates and remakes familiar arrangements, using the stage as a laboratory for unbridled creativity, New Orleans-spiced fun, and spontaneous interaction. Bursting with enthusiasm and excitement, Waiting for Columbus is truly a live album for the agesand one of a certain distinctive era.


    The abundance of great music, the culture of drugs, and the politics of Richard Nixon, which had everyone polarized and created more of a sense of community, all contributed to this incredible feeling that somehow we were on a collective journey. Waiting for Columbus is one of the last parts of that journey, and among the last vestiges of that scene. Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne, as told to Bud Scoppa


    Amazingly, the set came together under less-than-ideal conditions. In the months leading up to the seven 1977 Washington D.C. and London concerts that were taped for the record, leader Lowell George had removed himself from the bands affairs. The chemistry was fractured, but the shows functioned as a molding agent. And did Little Feat ever respond. With every member of the sextet playing like their life depended on it, and a guest appearance by ex-Rolling Stone Mick Taylor, this is a must-have set.

    Blind Willie McTell (May 5, 1898 - August 19, 1959) was a Piedmont blues and ragtime singer and guitarist. He played with a fluid, syncopated fingerstyle guitar technique, common among many exponents of Piedmont blues. Unlike his contemporaries, he came to use twelve-string guitars exclusively. McTell was also an adept slide guitarist, unusual among ragtime bluesmen. His vocal style, a smooth and often laid-back tenor, differed greatly from many of the harsher voices of Delta bluesmen such as Charley Patton.


    McTell's influence extended over a wide variety of artists, including the Allman Brothers Band, who covered his Statesboro Blues, and Bob Dylan, who paid tribute to him in his 1983 song Blind Willie McTell, the refrain of which is And I know no one can sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell. Other artists influenced by McTell include Taj Mahal, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Ralph McTell, Chris Smither and the White Stripes.

    Cabbage Alley

    In the late 1960s and early 1970s, New Orleans's Meters churned out irresistible funk instrumentals that were distilled to their essence and intended to get people up and shaking. When the Josie label went bankrupt in 1971, the band moved over to the Reprise label and began to broaden their horizons, expanding their sonic palette and putting more emphasis on vocals. Cabbage Alley, their Reprise debut, finds them experimenting with tropical sounds (Soul Island), Allman Brothers-style guitar leads (Stay Away), Neil Young covers (Birds), and socially conscious lyrics (Lonesome and Unwanted People). --Marc Greilsamer.

    Almost The Eighties - Vol. 1

    WLIR-FM Live Show Broadcast At Nassau Coliseum - Uniondale, NY On December 30th, 1979

    Limited To 500 Copies

    Between August 1975 and May 1976, the Allman Brothers Band played to some of the biggest crowds of their career. Gradually, however, the members of the band grew apart during these tours, with sound checks and rehearsals apparently becoming a thing of the past. The shows were considered lackluster and the members were excessive in their drug use. As a result, the band finally broke up.

    In 1978 moves were afoot to reunite the band, augmented by new guitarist Dan Toler and bassist David Goldflies, to record the much celebrated Enlightened Rogues album, and return to touring. The album was released in February and the recording featured here with the new line-up came on the night before New Year's Eve of the same year - for the record, fact fans, on the actual NYE, the band was performing in New Haven, Connecticut.

    The new line up is captured here in superb revitalized form, at the Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY on the 30th December 1979, a show broadcast live by WLIR-FM, and presented here complete across 2 installments.

    Available here on vinyl for the first time, this superb 1995 performance is testimony to the fact that whatever turmoil the Allmans were going through - and, boy, did this band go through their fair share, and then some - they would never let their performances suffer. In November 1995, The Allman Brothers Band were the headline act for an episode of Austin City Limits, the long running Public Television live music show. Performing an hour long set, largely made up of oldies and classics, they also played - as opener - one of their finest late period songs, the magnificent 'Sailin' Across The Devil's Sea' from the album Where It All Begins.

    Toulouse Street (On Sale)

    Their second album, Toulouse Street (1972) was the Platinum Award winning record with which the Doobie Brothers broke through internationally. Carrying the Classic Rock hits "Listen To The Music" and "Jesus Is Just Alright", the album also offers other highly interesting tracks that put this seminal seventies Rock group on the map. Tracks like "Mamaloi", the beautiful title track ballad and the highly soulful & funky "Cotton Mouth". Finding a balanced mix of Rock, Country, Folk and R&B, the band found themselves in the same waters as the Eagles and Allman Brothers Band, but then with even more variety. Released in a gatefold sleeve, just as the original North American and UK issues. This one hasn't been available on vinyl in 30 years - the Music On Vinyl reissue marks the very first 180 gram audiophile version.

    The South Rises Again: Bluesy, Hard-Rocking 1973 Debut Raised Southern Rock Flag


    Landmark Release Includes Ageless "Free Bird," "Tuesday's Gone," "Gimme Three Steps," "Simple Man"


    Rawness Never Felt So Real: Mobile Fidelity LP Affords Triple-Guitar Array, Gritty Lead Vocals Plentiful Space and Rich Tonalities


    Forget, for a moment, "Free Bird." Consider, instead, the authentic down-home rowdiness, distinctive first-person narratives, searing triple-guitar front, gritty vocals, and bluesy boogie bluster. And the undeniable youthful hunger pumping through the subtly witty songs, all strongly rooted in Southern heritage and working-class values. Independent of the most-requested tune in history, Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd bleeds red, white, and blue and encapsulates the wondrous dichotomies of Southern rock.


    Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's vinyl edition of the Floridian group's ground-shaking debut is the equivalent of having access to the band's amplifiers and producer Al Kooper's control boards in the studio. Affording palpable spaciousness to each of the instruments, expanding the dynamic range, and clearing away previous tonal congestion, this version presents the septet's raw, honest tunes in the most direct, hard-hitting sound they've ever enjoyed. It lays waste to all prior reissues-none of which on LP went back to the master tapes.


    Months before Lynyrd Skynyrd enjoyed the privilege of recording its debut, the band entered its seventh year of playing juke joints and assorted dives in a bootstraps effort to land a deal. During a residency at a hardscrabble Georgian club, the group's rambunctious rock, swaggering attitude, blue-collar determination, and country-reared cadence caught the ear of producer/musician Al Kooper. The rest is history. Kooper inked the ensemble to his new imprint and hustled everyone into a Georgia studio for sessions that occurred March through April 1973.


    It's at the Studio One space that Lynyrd Skynyrd flashed scampering tempos, cutting give-and-take riffs, loose barroom lines, and off-the-cuff vocalese that entirely separated its approach from that of the more jazz-styled affairs of the Allman Brothers Band. Confederate flags, empty whiskey bottles, cocked pistols, rotgut habits, scorned women, and prodigal drifters populate the songs, nearly all written from first-person perspectives that add to their genuineness. Prophetic touches-twinkling piano notes, soaring mellotrons, a one-off harmonica-provide ideal complements to the intertwined guitar melodies and singer Ronnie Van Zant's comfortable gruffness and way of expressing local customs.


    Whether it's the them's-fightin'-words edginess of the humorous albeit entirely believable Southern-etched yarn "Gimme Three Steps," which sails on a triple mast of six-string exchanges and clicks heels to a trotting percussive beat that doubles as the sound of cowboy-boot heels, or the spiritual pleas and lived-in wisdom echoed on the barbed-wire balladry of "Simple Man," Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd burns with forthright and freewheeling desire, rebellious and sincere earnestness. Seen from either a lyrical, musical, or performance perspective, there's not a wasted second or awkward moment to be found.


    Then, of course, there's the sugary drip of Van Zant's political ragtime-referencing affair "Things Goin' On," bluegrass-tinted swing of "Mississippi Kid," and swampy get-go of "Poison Whiskey." They all lead up to the epic "Free Bird," a greasy slide-guitar anthem that no matter how many times it's played or requested in jest, never loses its power to grip the listener's emotions like an iron vice. What a record.
