An Evening with the Allman Brothers Band: First Set

by: The Allman Brothers Band

A good live album, but not quite the worthy successor to the Fillmore shows in their various forms -- the band is in form throughout this more than one-hour distillation of shows in Boston and New York from their 1992 tour, covering old and new repertory, but there are no surprises. The song lineup wastes some opportunities, however, and there isn't any serious new ground covered, which may be par for the course for a band in its 22nd year. On the up side, the crispness of the recording helps one fully appreciate the power and articulation of the playing by everyone, but especially Dickey Betts and Warren Haynes. ~ Bruce Eder
