This live batch is a force of groove and attitude that you won’t find on the band's other live recordings.


The Allman Brothers
Play All Night: Live at the Beacon Theatre 1992
Epic/Legacy Recordings

Some venues just feel right. Clearly New York’s Beacon Theatre does something for the Allman Brothers, who’ve played well over 200 shows in this rocking neo-Grecian venue since 1989. In 2000, the Brothers recorded the live album Peakin’ at the Beacon with a 21-year-old Derek Trucks and a soon-to-be-fired Dickey Betts on guitar. In 2003, Allmans released the platinum-selling Live at the Beacon with Trucks and Warren Haynes on 6-string. Which begs the question: Do we really need another live recording of the same band at the same venue? Yes, because that lineup on those nights in that room killed it.

Just listen to the opening track, where Dickey Betts’ midrange-heavy PRS punches you in the ear with “da dada da da” and Warren Haynes’ slide answers with a sweet cry. You'll be glad Sony just released this forgotten gem. This version of “Statesboro Blues” has all the fire and grease it had in March of 1971 when brother Duane raised the bar for all during At Fillmore East. “Play All Night” benefits greatly from the warm, round fuzz of Allen Woody’s bass, a force of groove and attitude that you won’t find on the other live Allman Brothers recordings.

Must-hear track: “Midnight Rider”

This pickup captures the clear, bell-like single-coil chime of a classic P-90 when played clean and retains the tight mids and articulate low-end vintage growl and smooth sustain saturation when pushed into overdrive.
