The first live album by the main architects of Southern Rock, The Allman Brothers Band, and their third release overall, this was the band's artistic and commercial breakthrough and has been considered by some critics as one of the greatest live albums ever in rock music. Recorded over the course of three nights in March 1971, it features the band performing extended jam versions of songs such as "Whipping Post", "You Don't Love Me", and "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed", the latter a complex and melodic instrumental that stretches past the 13-minute mark. Producer Tom Dowd later dubbed it as "the greatest fusion piece I've ever heard". In 2015, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked the album at #2 in their multi-genre list of the greatest live albums, and the U.K.'s The Independent put it at #1 in their corresponding list printed in 2020. Duane Allman, who is heard here at the peak of his powers, would tragically die in a motorcycle accident a few months later at the untimely age of 24. For a 21st century listener seeking to experience the best of The Allman Brothers Band's greatest incarnation, there is no better package than this one.
