The Allman Brothers Band - Bear's Sonic Journals: Fillmore East, February 1970 (Deluxe Edition 3CD set)

You asked for it, so here it is! The Owsley Stanley Foundation & the Allman Brothers Band are pleased to present Bear’s complete recordings of the Allman Brothers Band at the Fillmore East in February 1970 in CD format. This Deluxe Edition, 3-CD set will include the already-released compilation CD along with 2 CDs of the source material from all three nights — the complete set of Bear’s Sonic Journals from each show as played on February 11, 13, & 14, 1970, including all three complete versions of the earliest known live concert recordings of “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.” We also expanded the booklet to include more photos from these historic nights, taken by Bear’s good friend, Amalie Rothschild. The photos include an extremely rare shot of Bear in the soundbooth, up in the balcony overlooking the stage.

Important Note: These recordings were not previously released on CD in their entirety because they contain significant flaws, primarily due to reel changes in the middle of songs. We released them last summer as high resolution downloads, but many of our listeners preferred to have a physical copy. We get it; we’re the same way. Moreover, it was Bear’s wish that these recordings (especially February 14) be released in whole because they are sonically pure and include important, previously unreleased material of the band with Duane in his prime.
