McLatchey's Second Tier

I always felt this was a bit of a sister album to At Fillmore East even if its studio record was more of a follow up, but this was essentially the last of the original Allman Brothers. Have to admit at this point I'm a little worn out by "Melissa" but everything else here, especially "Les Brers," "Blue Sky," and "Mountain Jam," is prime Allmans. The album was finished among the tragedy of losing Duane and it's hard not to feel the sadness in the work. These days the newer reissues of At Fillmore East tend to overlap with the live record of this album, so I feel like you can't really have one without the other. With the possible exception of Brothers and Sisters, it would be a long while before they would make a record nearly as good.
