At Fillmore East became one of the best albums by The Allman Brothers Band. This is also the album that brought them into the limelight. It was very unfortunate that their guitarist Duane Allman died tragically in a motorcycle accident just three months after the album was released in 1971.
This was their first live album and the title of the album indicates where it was recorded at Fillmore East in New York City. It was their first album to go Platinum. The album features such outstanding songs as “Whipping Post,” “You Don’t Love Me,” and ‘” In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.”
Fillmore East was the rock venue of rock promoter Bill Graham. It was located on the Lower East Side.
