Info for Live At Ludlow Garage (Remastered)
„Live at Ludlow Garage 1970 features 91 minutes of the Allman Brothers Band in concert at a Cincinnati venue that they loved, nearly a year before their legendary Fillmore shows. The acoustics are good, though a little shaky -- the tape was made at seven-and-a-half IPS, the bare minimum professional standard, which leaves more hiss than one might like and a bit less clarity than a fully professional live album might show. On the other hand, the group's sound imparts its own punch and clarity, and it was done in stereo, and if not for the existence of the Fillmore tapes, and the fact that the albums they yielded sold a kajillion copies, this show might well have been released in the 1970s. It isn't as intense as the Fillmore shows, but it does capture the group as a little-known working band with but a single album out and building a reputation -- and with Dickey Betts yet to emerge as either a singer or composer and their sound still being worked out ('Statesboro Blues' gets a startlingly subdued performance, anticipating the acoustic version of 'In Memory of Elizabeth Reed' from the '90s recording An Evening with the Allman Brothers Band: 2nd Set). They build their set on ambitious reinterpretations of songs by Blind Willie McTell, Muddy Waters ('Trouble no More'), John Lee Hooker ('Dimples'), and Willie Dixon (whose 'Hoochie Coochie Man' is a soaring highlight of this two-disc set, in a version that makes every other white band's cover seem wimpy by comparison), climaxing with a searing though somewhat disjointed 44-minute version of 'Mountain Jam.'

Allman Brothers Band
They formed in 1969, but the road veterans continue to tour like they have something to prove. And they're already legends, with a secure place in history and a plaque at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. But THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND is also a vital contemporary phenomenon, as much a part of the present and future of music as any band can be.
In early 2003, the group released the critically lauded Hittin' The Note, their first new studio project in nine years (and 24th overall). Released March 18, 2003 on their own Peach label (via a new deal with Sanctuary), these 11 tracks prove the band's ability to adapt its classic sound to the energy and aesthetics of modern rock. The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND underlined the success of Hittin’ The Note (including two Grammy nominations for the track “Instrumental Illness”) with a live DVD and CD recorded in New York during the group’s annual marathon of shows at the Beacon Theatre (which they have packed over 140 times, including 14 sell-outs in 2006). The group also continues to release music from their personal archives, which they’ve guarded closely over the years.
The Allman Brothers Band at the Beacon Theatre…just hearing the phrase conjures up images and sounds of well executed and passionately played live rock and roll. To capture the event for fans who might not necessarily have been lucky enough to get into the 2894-seat venue, the group recorded the shows, and released the Live At The2 Beacon Theatre DVD in late ’03, and it was quickly certified gold. One Way Out, a live album from the same Beacon stand, came out in March 2004.
2003 also brought further accolades for the ALLMANS. The band was recognized by Rolling Stone for featuring four of the top 100 guitarists of all time: the late Duane Allman was cited as #2, while current guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks came in at #23 and #81, respectively. Known as one of rock’s best live acts, the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND were one of only two artists whose live albums ranked in the top 50 of Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.” The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND was honored for At Fillmore East (while James Brown was saluted for Live At The Apollo). An expanded version of At Fillmore East and the previously unavailable Atlanta International Pop Festival (the July 1970 concert that they both opened and closed) were released to critical and fan acclaim. The group was selected as the first artist to introduce the “Instant Live” program, whereby fans were able to purchase CD copies of the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND concert they just saw, immediately after the show.
Not many groups have been around as long as The Allman Brothers Band. Of those that have, most have either lapsed into a nostalgia-act coma or withered on a weary vine. If you're talking about a band that has both legs and heart, whose experience feeds an intensity that's rare even among the greenest music newbies, that narrows the field pretty much down to these psychedelic sons of the South. But passion doesn't come easily, which helps explain why it's taken them so long to record once again. In April 1997, frustrated by tensions within the group that were threatening to slow its creative momentum, Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody left to pursue Gov’t Mule (with whom he still tours and releases new music), and the focus of the group shifted exclusively to live performance. Though they still delivered killer shows, something was missing, and eventually it became clear that the only way to get it back was to make a change in the personnel.
