Ten Years After - Live At The Fillmore East (CD)

However, I've enjoyed this and play it regularly. The recording quality is better than "Recorded Live" and the band playing more committed. There are some covers on the recording that are lively and as enjoyable as the Band's own compositions. I particularly liked the tracks from the "Cricklewood Green" era.

Was stunned by the playing of Alvin Lee. This is great bluesy hard rock, Alvin Lee is sometimes criticised for his machine gun guitar solos, but I find them well constructed and exciting. But this is more than a one man band, this is a high calibre quartet who certainly know their stuff. I love all the tracks apart from the hobbit drum solos are not my cup of tea this band deserves more recognition than it already gets.

Recorded live 40 years ago, this sounds as fresh and exciting as the day it was made. This really is a brilliant double live cd with excellent sound quality on both discs. Superb musicianship and stellar guitar playing from the late great Alvin Lee. A must have for all guitar and rock fans! A very good live performance by an excellent band.

See all reviews. Roll Over Beethoven 5. I Woke Up This Morning 6. Includes liner notes by Ric Lee. This superbly recorded double disc the original engineer was Eddie Kramer, best-known for his work with Hendrix captured over a weekend worth of dates in February at the venerable New York City venue catches the Brit boogie quartet at the peak of their powers.

These shows were sandwiched between their triumphant Woodstock set and the release of Cricklewood Green, generally considered the band's best work. They find the group primed through years of roadwork, as well as obviously excited to be playing in front of an appreciative N. Kicking off with one of Bill Graham's patented individual-member intros, the group winds their way through the ominous riff of "Love Like a Man. Alvin Lee and his flying fingers stay firmly in the spotlight, but the remastered sound is so immaculate you can finally appreciate the contributions of the other, generally overlooked TYA members: Chick Churchill on keyboards and especially Leo Lyons' fluid bass work, along with Ric Lee's jazzy drums.

The songs shift into overdrive on the jams -- the longest of which pushes "I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes" to 20 minutes -- and amazingly stay interesting for the majority of that time thanks to Lee's sense of flashy dynamics, as he quotes liberally from Hendrix and Cream licks.

Detailed liner notes from drummer Lee describe the scene, not only in terms of Ten Years After, but also of the musical camaraderie of the time. He was the best promoter rock has ever had and you could feel his influence in every little single thing at the Fillmore. It was just special. The bands felt it and the crowd felt it and it lit all of us up. The Fillmore was the high octane gig to play in New York - or anywhere else, really. It was a great sounding room with a great crowd.

The Fillmores were so professionally run, compared to anything else at the time. And he would gamble on acts, bringing in jazz and blues Because of changes in the music industry and large growth in the concert industry as exemplified by the increased prevalence of arena and stadium bookings , Graham closed the Fillmore East after only three years.

In , a six-disc set featuring the Allman Brothers Band's early and late shows at the Fillmore East of March 12 and 13, and including their performance on the venue's final night of June 27, was issued as The Fillmore East Recordings.

In Memory of Elizabeth Reed is by far my favorite. I started listening to this on vinyl wen I was I listen to it still regularly. Never disappoints. Always soothing to the soul. One of the best, if not the best Live Blues Album ever made. Stateside Blues is my choice as well.

Otherwise, this is a great intro to the BEST live album ever. Forty-four years later and nothing has come close to matching it. I think it is simply the best live recording from the best live album by the best live band ever.

I have collected as many Allman Bros instrumentals as I can find. Why has no one ever packaged that other than with internet lists? On top of this, I was at the last show at the Fillmore where the live album was recorded. The show started around midnight and when we left, it was am and daylight. For me, Elizabeth Reed is the best song they did. I think he was from Long Island. Are you that Ken? Peace, Brother. Remember Duane Allman!

In Memory of Elizabeth Reed is my favorite. Literally this album is the reason I became a musician. It has no competition. The synergy of this band was without parallel! My favorite live album, of all time. However, I would offer one caveat. Every album by every artist will have a flawed song on any album. Whipping Post was too long and tedious, and not very original or clever lyrics. Rather dull. No band anywhere can hold a candle to the ABB as a solo expansive instrumental group. In the folks at these concerts were so fortunate to be graced with music they never heard before.

I was born in , the youngest of 6 kids. My oldest brother,8 years my senior, bought this album when it came out. I still might be the only 10 year old kid to ever call a radio station and request Midnight Rider. Better that Jimi Hendrix at Monterey? I dunno, to quote Mark Knopfler. I tend to agree, Michael, that at the very least, the two albums are the best two live albums in the genre. See what I did there? I remember the overpowering guitar licks, the passion, and power of this album that I felt then to this day.

It literally moved me. I was not familiar with the Allman Brothers at that time, but it made me a fan for life. When I could, I eventually collected everything of theirs, and especially anything of Duane Allman. My favorite on the Fillmore album was without a doubt Whipping Post.

Anyone else remember that one? Loan me a dime IS one of the best blues find ever! I was also, fairly young. Awesome then, Awesome now!

Detailed liner notes from drummer Lee describe the scene, not only in terms of Ten Years After, but also of the musical camaraderie of the time. Some of this is almost embarrassingly dated -- the drum solo-laden "The Hobbit" is particularly guilty, as are the often-interminable guitar gymnastics -- and the Chuck Berry numbers might have been live crowd-pleasers but don't add much to the originals.
