Allman Brothers Band | The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings

Update 6/11 11:45 a.m PT: We finally have a tracklist and it contains 15 previously unreleased tracks!

If you look at most "Best Live Albums Of All-Time" lists, you're more than likely to see The Allman Brothers Band's 1971 live album At Fillmore East near the top. The album was recorded over the three-night span of March 11 - 13 and on July 29 we'll be able to hear more material from the run when Mercury Records releases The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings.

The news of the pending release was broken by Music TAP. MusicTap's piece doesn't contain much info other than the current expected release date and that it will be issued on vinyl, CD and as digital downloads, but Hittin' The Note publisher John Lynskey, who penned the liner notes for the new release, shared more details which have us very excited.

The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings
will contain a whopping 14 previously unreleased tracks recorded on March 12 and 13. Apparently the new release includes four full sets from the 12th and 13th as unfortunately no tapes exist from the first night of the run. Lynskey also notes that the package includes the complete versions of the two "You Don't Love Me's" that producer Tom Dowd cut and spliced together for the original version on the At Fillmore East album. The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings also contains a recording of the Allman's Fillmore East- closing performance from June 27, 1971 featuring a previously-unreleased intro from impresario Bill Graham.
