Sonic Reducers | Allman Joy

The ABB's Live At Fillmore East is 50 today. We have something to say about that.


Fifty years ago today, The Allman Brothers Band released their breakthrough concert recording Live At Fillmore East. If you’ve heard it, you know why veteran publicist Eric Alper (whose client list included ABB) and I are talking about it in today’s Sonic Reducers episode. If you haven’t heard it, you really need to remedy that oversight. But not before you listen to us chat about the Allmans, veer off into a discussion of our favourite live albums, and debate whether Gregg Allman called everybody (including me) brother. As a bonus, I just posted my 2011 interview with Gregg HERE, so you can get an extra dose of Allman joy today. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
