A bit overlong to be honest with a few pointless and boring instrumentals(which also appear on the 2CD version of the Fillmore east album and work so much better in that context). A single album would have made a much tighter and more enjoyable listening experience. Still, half of it is brilliant.

I've never been high on albums that mix live music with studio music, but this one did it rather well. The only thing I don't like about the album is Mountain Jam. Were I a DJ on the radio, I'd love it, as I could put it on and go eat lunch, but to listen to all 33 minutes is difficult to say the least. Still a great album.

From gtroda
I understand they wanted to pay tribute to Duane after his untimely death, but the 30 plus minute Mountain Jam is difficult for most to listen through. It probably would have been a better album without that track. The rest of the tracks however are all great so it's still a pretty good album.

I feel like I've been taken away to a different era when I listen to this. Captivating.

This double album was released after Live at Fillmore East had propelled the band to stardom in the USA. It has three components. Firstly studio tracks featuring Duane Allman, secondly tracks recorded following his untimely demise and lastly live tracks from the Filmore East performances. More by accident than design the album works really well with the more laid back style of the studio material complementing the raw power of the best live tracks. Either way it showcases a great band at their very best despite having to deal with a huge tragedy.

The fact that this double album only contains nine tracks is due to some of the tracks being greatly extended jams. This is never more apparent than on the 33 minute version of Mountain Jam which is extended way beyond the listener’s interest and undermines the whole album. The beautiful Betts track Melissa is one of the bands finest ever moments and Little Martha is a great track featuring Duane at his very best. The album reached # 4 on the US chart and is a fitting memorial to Duane Allman

I listened to this the other day and I've forgot how much I enjoy it. I find I enjoy this a lot more by skipping the 33 minute "Mountain Jam." This is definitely their best, following the Fillmore album.

From Hayden
First few songs are nice, then it goes into some live stuff while Duane was still alive, and to me it feels a bit weird. I liked his guitar playing and stuff, don't get me wrong, but the albums' feel changes mid-point, and makes it sound off. Ok album, Mountain Jam was an interesting song to put in here, would of preferred a studio version that was maybe around 10 minutes in length instead though.

3 songs (the last 3) were recorded with Duane Allman before he was killed in a mororcycle accident. The effect of losing him would be felt throughout their long career, which continues to this day. After Eat A Peach, they had one more great album in them. Eat A Peach is almost a classic, and would be better had they released a single instead of a double album. "Mountain Jam", (which, along with 2 other tracks, are from the famous Fillmore East concert. At the end of the Fillmore album, you can hear the beginning of this song as "Whipping Post" fades out.) clocks in at a whopping 33 minutes, and takes some doing to listen to all the way through. But it was a necessary part of the album.

Otherwise, this is great. The first 3 tracks were recorded without Duane, and are as good as anything they did with him. "One Way Out" and "Trouble No More" are also from Fillmore, and the last 3 with Duane, particularly Dicky Betts' "Blue Sky", are excellent.

A band picking up and moving on from tragedy. Not for the last time, either.
