Previously Unreleased Allman Brothers Band Recordings From February 1970 Fillmore East Run Coming
In 1996, a CD featuring selections from The Allman Brothers Band’s February 11, 13 and 14, 1970 concerts at Fillmore East in New York City recorded by pioneering sound engineer Owsley “Bear” Stanley was issued and eventually went out of print. The Owsley Stanley Foundation teamed with The Allman Brothers Band to re-release the material, with all new mastering, as Bear’s Sonic Journals: Allman Brothers Band, Fillmore East February 1970. While the CD release will contain the same sequencing as the 1996 version, high-resolution downloads are coming soon that will showcase never been released tracks from all three concerts.
Bear’s Sonic Journals: Allman Brothers Band, Fillmore East February 1970 on CD is available for purchase starting today at the Peach Music Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Copies will then be sold via the Owsley Stanley Foundation website beginning on July 24. The high-resolution downloads featuring the previously unreleased material goes up for sale on July 27 through the Owsley Stanley Foundation website.
The February 1970 Fillmore East shows include the original The Allman Brothers Band lineup with guitarists Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, keyboardist Gregg Allman, bassist Berry Oakley and drummers Jaimoe and Butch Trucks. Bill Graham put together a triple-bill for the concerts that also featured the Grateful Dead and Love. Listen to a sample of the “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” that opened the ABB’s performance on February 14 with the all-new mastering found on the new CD version:
Stay tuned for the track listing for the high-resolution downloads.
