The Allman Brothers Band Release ‘Live From A&R; Studios’

Today, The Allman Brothers Band finally opened their vault for the group’s first new live archival release in over two years and first featuring the original lineup since 2007. Live From A&R; Studios documents the band’s live radio concert from A&R; Studios in New York on August 26, 1971 and the new release can be streamed in all its glory via Spotify.

Guitarist Duane Allman is on fire throughout the performance, while Gregg Allman’s voice sounds absolutely fantastic. The performance took place just days after King Curtis was murdered and the band honors the sax king by working “You Don’t Love Me” into “Soul Serenade.” Other highlights on the nine-track release include a scorching “Statesboro Blues,” a transcendent “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” and blistering “Hot’Lanta.”
