Hi, I am new to this forum and I am in doubt in which version of Allman Brothers live album to pick up ?

- Remastered 1 cd edition of Fillmore East (released in 1997) or the double cd with entire concert (released in 1992).

Which has the better audio quality and booklet full of information ?

Cheers from Brazil,

Reinaldo

Depends on you you ask, they will most llikely say the remastered 1 cd version would have the better sound...

I like the 2 cd version myself, simply because there's more music...love the Whipping Post > Mountain Jam, Drunken Hearted Boy....The WP > MJ is the way it's supposed to be heard...56 minutes of music right there....blissssssss


If you ask me and if money is no issue, go with the 2 cd set....

Yeah it's pretty much of a six of one, half dozen of the other situation -- the one I have is the MFSL "original master recording" gold-plated ultradisc -- it's two CDs and has good liner notes from Tom Dowd.

I never could figure out why MFSL's Eat A Peach was one disc, and the Fillmore East, two. It was the same with their versions of Tommy and Quadrophenia, also both double albums originally -- one was one disc, the other, two. Fabulous sound though, same with the Fillmore concerts -- have never heard the 1997 single-disc issue.
As Sandman says, the fact that WPost & Mtn. Jam are there in their uninterrupted glorious entirety make the Fillmore Concerts worth buying along -- a drawback however, is that it doesn't have the famous intro to Whipping Post that was included on the original release.
I echo Sandman's welcome! Hope all's good in Brazil.

Hi Sandman and Stephen, thanks for the tips. I will order the double album for sure. I was in doubt about the audio quality because the majority of cds that I have from 92, 91 are not so good as the recent releases (2000, 1999, 2001 or 2002).

Everything is fine here in Brazil and I will listen to AB as much as possible from now on.

I love Govīt Mule !

Cheers,

Reinaldo

Yeah, if you've got the bucks, go with the two-CD version. The Drunken Hearted boy and Don't Keep Me Wonderin' tracks are essentials that you won't get even if you buy both the original Fillmore and Eat A Peach. However, Eat a Peach is still a must-have for the rest of the disc, even if you'll have a bit of redundancy with the live material.

Ralves, first things first, welcome to the forum.
I've only been here about three weeks, and this place is a great place to hang out.

As far as which Filmore to get, go for the double CD. It is like having the whole concert, and it sounds great to my ears.

He's a posting machine He'll be in Marley and Pam territory before long

Another benefit of the 2 cd version: Stormy Monday. It has the harmonica solo that was edited out of the original Fillmore version.

No kidding stratnut! I've been under this name for over a year! hee hee. And my last name never even got as far as this one. . . You should be renamed postnut!

Ralves, I definately say go for the double too. There's such little difference in sound quality and the FILLMORE CONCERTS simply has more music and every note of it is wonderful. . . Welcome aboard

You have made the best choice by going with the 2cd Fillmore East. One of the best live albums that I've ever bought in my life.

A quibbler, here, Ralves. It's true that the double disc set is a must. For one thing, it gives the listener the songs in the order they were played. The remastering did some great things, like making the drums and keyboards clearer. There were some odd aspects, too, though: the bass is lower in the mix and less treble-y than the tone Berry Oakley actually used. That is an injustice to the prominence of his playing in the original ABB sound. There are places where Duane's guitar is too low, too, like at the climax of Whipping Post, totally inexplicable. I thought my stereo was out of whack the first time I heard it.

If you can, try to find decent copies of the original vinyl release to get a better idea of the band's sound, but enjoy these fuller versions of the shows.

The original vinyl was a unique concept that had seven songs only on two records for the price of one. The special pricing was something that made it sail of the racks in the late summer of '71- selling almost 500,000 copies the first twelve weeks.

Thanks to Tom Dowd going back in fixing (only to make better) that record, The 92 Fillmore Concert chronicles was given to me as birthday present that year. It has a deeper more dimensional sound to my ears now. I hear things I've never heard before and yeah I noticed Duane a little low in the Mix on WP but he is crystal clear though. The rhythm section on YDLM seems to be confused for few seconds while Dickey just tears it up and for me Dickey on that one is one of the cds most notable improvements. Now with Mt Jam-OWO-DKMW- TNM- along bishops song it is an enjoyable visit back in time.

The Fillmore is the cornerstone of this bands legacy. Thank god it was recorded
