Album Review: "Manley Field House, Syracuse University, April 7, 1972" by Allman Brothers Band (10/10)

 Allman Brothers Band Recording Company 

Producers: The Allman Brothers Band, Bert Holman 

ABB is legendary, so any show of theirs is bound to be a stunner. That said, one performance shortly after Duane’s untimely passing captured the Southern rockers truly feeling the blues. Could there be anything better than smoking hot versions of “Statesboro Blues,” “One Way Out,” and “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More” from when those classics were new? Perhaps epic takes on “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” and “Whipping Post.” More than half a century later, the material and playing remain unmatched.
