Allman Brothers Band Release Two Classic Live Albums

Allman Brothers Band: Play All Night: Live at the Beacon Theater 1992Fans of The Allman Brothers Band’s 1990’s lineup can travel in the wayback machine and experience some of its famed concerts.

Play All Night: Live at the Beacon Theater 1992 documents the band’s first long run at the theatre. It, and DVD release Live at Great Woods, shows off the band after it reconstituted itself for its 1989 20th anniversary with new players, including bassist Allen Woody. (Woody left the band in 1997 to focus on his work in Gov’t Mule and died in 2000 at age 44.)

Allman Brothers Band: Live at Great WoodsIt’s the first time Live at Great Woods, filmed in Massachusetts in 1991 for Japanese TV, has been available on DVD and in its original long form (it was previously a VHS-only release). Interviews are presented separately on the disc, instead of being intercut with the music.

Play All Night is culled from two of 10 shows played at the Beacon, and the two-disc CD package also features new liner notes and loads of photos from the shows, which proved to be a watershed event for the band.

Check out the acoustic “Midnight Rider” from Live at Great Woods. It’s phenomenal:

Play All Night is available as a two-disc set and in digital formats (iTunes and Amazon MP3). Live at Great Woods is available on DVD.
