The Allman Brothers Band at their finest. From the Fillmore East 1971 with the original lineup before the deaths of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. Saw them perform this a few months later at the same venue and it was electrifying. Amazing how with two drummers they could play so tightly intertwined and let the music flow (compare for example John Bonham's drumming with Led Zeppelin which turned every song into a plodding stomp). Duane and Dickie Betts on guitars match the drummers and Oakley contributes some fine bass.
