At Fillmore EastThe Allman Brothers Band
I like this. Bluesy. I had no idea. I thought they were country and Neil Young was more like ummm folk music or blue grassy. This is not what I expected. Traditional blues riffs everywhere. I had this cd in high school that was all backing blues stuff for you to do improvised solos over the top of it. I'm sorry...maybe they'd hate this...but this is what that sounded like. Also look how happy they look in this album cover but like you can tell....this group does drugs. Gregg Allman married Cher. What? Whipping Post is 23 minutes long. 23 minutes. How does that work? Like how did that song ever get exposure? In Memory of Elizabeth Reed is 13 minutes. How...did ....that ....ever ....work? Whipping Post is the best of the album. All 23 minutes. Wild man, wild. It stands out with it's opening. Blues can sound like the same song over and over and over...but Whipping Post is blues and then this unique heavy tripping triplet feeling bass-line. Fast moving base lines in general are memorable.
