Some 8 MM film of Allman Brothers Band at Fillmore East, March ’71 seems to have just popped up. I have to say that I don’t know much about this or its origins, who filmed it, synced it, put it on YouTube.
I do know that as rough and crazy as the footage is, it’s still exciting to watch. It makes my heart race actually, because Duane Allman is so criminally under-seen on video. No other modern-era musician is so underrepresented. I hope that changes somehow some day. In the meantime, enjoy!
And then there’s this, synced by Jules Fothergill. Isn’t it interesting to watch them back to back?
