2016  EU repressed on 180g 2LP=Tributes to fallen icons don’t come any more poignant or illustrative than Eat a Peach. Released in early 1972, slightly more than three months after guitarist Duane Allman died in a motorcycle accident, the double album honors the musician via sides he recorded in the studio as well as several live performances that didn’t fit on the mammoth At Fillmore East. The Allman Brothers Band, determined to press on, also contributes a trio of songs completed after their soulmate’s passing. Its execution is near perfect, its concept timeless.

Released in February 1972 less than four months after Duane Allmans death EAT A PEACH gathers together the final tracks laid down by the original Allman Brothers Band the only studio documentation of the shortlived fiveman oneguitar ABB lineup and the remaining performances from the concerts which had yielded the epochal AT FILLMORE EAST album Far from being a stereotypical posthumous odds and ends collection however EAT A PEACH is a treasure trove containing much of the Brothers best work and stands right beside FILLMORE at the very apex of their stupendous body of recordings
Opening with the postDuane tracks EAT A PEACH demonstrates from its very first notes that there was and is far more to the ABB than one amazing guitarist Brother Greggs Aint Wastin Time No More though written before Duanes crash is an effective and alltoopoignant rumination on uprushing mortality with excellent playing from the whole quintet Dickey Betts tossed into the unenviable position of sole guitar player in rocks most celebrated twoguitar band more than holds his own here contributing topnotch picking on every track most notably his own thunderstorm instrumental Les Brers in A Minor which starts out as a grinding tribute to amplification before morphing into a Santanaesque Latin funk workout liberally spiced with impressive displays of chops all around Melissa a beautiful old ballad cowritten by Gregg which the Brothers had first recorded with their previous group the Hourglass is by contrast epitomally delicate and genuinely moving Dickeys ethereal lead is a dream
