    Summary:
    On this date, Bill Graham assembled a stellar roster of bands to participate in the filming of a television special called Welcome To The Fillmore East for broadcast on educational channels. Short sets were filmed by the Byrds, the Elvin Bishop Group, Sha-Na-Na, Van Morrison, and the Allman Brothers Band, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of Bill Graham and the Fillmore East staff at work.

    The Allman Brothers performance is nothing short of spectacular and features the original lineup that included Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. Recorded six months prior to the legendary Live At Fillmore East double album set, this performance captures the Allman Brothers when they were a relatively new band, full of youthful passion and performing what would become classic original material when it was fresh and new.

    Following Bill Graham's introduction, they kick things off with a tight performance of Don't Keep Me Wonderin', which features the band's friend, Tom Doucette, blowing harp over the group's trademark sound. Gregg's vocal is barely audible, but it's obvious the group is full of fire. Dreams, which follows, slows things down a bit and the group establishes a relaxed groove that showcases their trademark sound, blending elements that would eventually come to define Southern Rock.

    They hit their stride on the next number, Dickey Betts' In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed. Here, the dual guitar attack of Allman and Betts is astounding. The two guitarists intertwine and synchronize in a manner nothing short of telepathic, creating a melting pot seasoned with elements of jazz, rock, country, and blues into a style utterly their own. The set ends with a ferocious take of Whipping Post that features outstanding melodic bass playing from Berry Oakley, with both Duane Allman and Dickey Betts soaring over the propulsive rhythm section. Shorter than the expansive versions that would develop in coming months, this is all the more fascinating for it, as they compress an incredible amount of energy into the time allotted.

    Time constrictions and vocal microphone malfunctions aside, this is still a fascinating performance. This original lineup of the band was certainly one of the most innovative and captivating bands to ever play the Fillmore.

  • The Allman Brothers Band - One Way Out - At Fillmore East 1971

    4:54

    The Allman Brothers Band have been playing One Way Out in concert from at least February 1971. A live recording was included on their 1972 album Eat a Peach. This was indeed recorded at the Fillmore East, but unlike the March 1971 live material used on the rest of Eat a Peach and At Fillmore East, One Way Out was recorded at the venue's final show on June 27, 1971.
    There is no One Way Out footage at the Fillmore East. So I created a video of this legendary performance from different concerts.

  • The Allman Brothers Band - Jessica

    7:31

    Jessica is a rock instrumental written by Dickey Betts, guitarist of The Allman Brothers Band, and Les Dudek, who played with them soon after Duane Allman's death.[1]

    Jessica was first released on the band's 1973 album Brothers and Sisters, and has subsequently been used in many musical contexts. In January 2006, a Wall Street Journal article referred to the piece as a true national heirloom. It is widely known as the theme to the BBC Two motoring programme Top Gear and its popular reformatted revival.

    The piece, along with Ramblin' Man, is one of the two tracks from the album which marked the beginning of a new era for the Allman Brothers Band following the deaths of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. The song is named for Jessica Betts, the daughter of Dickey Betts and Sandy Bluesky.

    Walk along the river, sweet lullaby, it just keeps on flowing,
    It don't worry 'bout where it's going, no, no.
    Don't fly, mister blue bird, I'm just walking down the road,
    Early morning sunshine tell me all I need to know

    You're my blue sky, you're my sunny day.
    Lord, you know it makes me high when you turn your love my way,
    Turn your love my way, yeah.

    Lyrics:

    Seven turns on the highway,
    Seven rivers to cross.
    Sometimes, you feel like you could fly away,
    Sometimes, you get lost.

    And sometimes, in the darkened night,
    You see the crossroad sign.
    One way is the mornin light,
    You got to make up your mind.

    Somebody's callin your name.
    Somebody's waiting for you.
    Love is all that remains the same,
    That's what it's all comin to.
    Hey, yeah.

    Last Sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain.
    Week before, they all seemed the same.
    With the help of God and true friends, I come to realize
    I still had two strong legs, and even wings to fly.

    And oh I, ain't wastin time no more
    'Cause time goes by like hurricanes, and faster things.

    Lord, lord Miss Sally, why are you cryin'?
    Been around here three long days, you're lookin' like you're dyin'.
    Just step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above
    Go on downtown baby, find somebody to love.

    Meanwhile I ain't wastin' time no more
    'Cause time goes by like pouring rain, and much faster things.

    You don't need no gypsy to tell you why
    You can't let one precious day slip by.
    Look inside yourself, and if you don't see what you want,
    Maybe sometimes then you don't,
    But leave your mind alone and just get high.

    Well by and by, way after many years have gone,
    And all the war freaks die off, leavin' us alone.
    We'll raise our children in the peaceful way we can,
    It's up to you and me brother
    To try and try again.

    Well, hear us now, we ain't wastin' time no more
    'Cause time goes by like hurricanes
    Runnin' after subway trains
    Don't forget the pouring rain.

Dreams, which follows, slows things down a bit and the group establishes a relaxed groove that showcases their trademark sound, blending elements that would eventually come to define Southern Rock.

    They hit their stride on the next number, Dickey Betts' In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed. Here, the dual guitar attack of Allman and Betts is astounding. The two guitarists intertwine and synchronize in a manner nothing short of telepathic, creating a melting pot seasoned with elements of jazz, rock, country, and blues into a style utterly their own. The set ends with a ferocious take of Whipping Post that features outstanding melodic bass playing from Berry Oakley, with both Duane Allman and Dickey Betts soaring over the propulsive rhythm section. Shorter than the expansive versions that would develop in coming months, this is all the more fascinating for it, as they compress an incredible amount of energy into the time allotted.

    Time constrictions and vocal microphone malfunctions aside, this is still a fascinating performance. This original lineup of the band was certainly one of the most innovative and captivating bands to ever play the Fillmore.

    This song is from the 'Eat a Peach album and the first song the band did without Duane Allman, who died four months before it was released. The lyrics: Crossroads, will you ever let him go is perhaps a reference to Robert Johnson, blues guitarist, who went to a crossroad and solded his soul to the devil.
