Is that not the best Blues/Rock recording ever?

Listening to the last few minutes of EAP Mountain Jam this afternoon and I find myself thinking " who in the hell are these people and what planet are they from?" Marley said it best: "Duane played notes that don't exist on my guitar"

Yes, yes & yes to three awesome posts -- it simply is not possible to get sick of Fillmore or Mr Peach -- like reneed said, with each listen comes that little something that you hadn't picked up on before...

then there's the last 15-20 seconds of Duane's first solo on Mtn. Jam (side I) -- cosmic joy for listeners -- such amazing playing

This will sound very dopey, but here goes: I am an intermediate guitar player. I have played for almost 20 years but am very average, in that Izzy Stradlin/ Ron Wood mode. Anyway, the guys I play with, who are really very good but humor me because I write songs, got determined to do "Liz Reed" and "Hot Lanta." So I have been listening to and learning from "Fillmore East" like I have never listened to it before, and MAN! What an album. I have the rhythm parts and low harmony guitar parts about 80% down but it has really taken a lot of work.
You might be saying "No **** sherlock" at this point, but the ABB makes it look so easy....I mean, you see some heavy metal guys grimacing their faces off while playing fairly standard licks, but these songs the ABB serve up with a smile and no sweat....

And the DRUMS and BASS on this disc are SO propulsive!!!

greetings:

When I am tinkering on a scooter out in my shop...this is always a favorite to put on the turntable. It (1) always puts me in a good mood (2) Gets me focused (3) makes me crank it nice n loud.

Funny on my way to work yesterday I listened closely to Berry and his "thump" on the way home I could hear Jaimoe and the jazz beats. What will I hear today ?

It still blows me away that these cats were in their early 20's when LAFE came out. I ended up spending the day alone here at home yesterday morning, pulled out the Les Paul and played along w/ LAFE Liz Reed two times. Actually listened to LAFE two times, it just remains fresh and innovative every time.

I've never heard a band so young sound so seasoned. What other bands at that age created something so unique and profound? If you think of bands from the last 10-20 years you will not find any that has a catalog to last 30-40 years. We are talking about a band that is above the status of legend. I often think of the Brothers contemporaries from the 60's and how so few are still timeless and still productive. They stand tall among everyone else. God Bless Duane for his vision.

There is a point on the Stony Brool cd that Duane's says "let's go" or along those lines. To him the band was taking it easy, he wanted them to play at 1,000% and on LAFE they do just that!

From the booklet in LAFE



"You can hear Greeg
and Duane locking, you
can hear Duane and
Dickey locking, you can
hear little percussion
parts tucked away. You
can hear all this stuff
that even I didn't know
existed"
- Tom Dowd

It IS a staggering album though, and yes, for a band SO YOUNG to play like that and lock into each other, I mean, YIKES.

But which version did you listen to? Was it the deluxe edition or the SACD or the original version with the harmonica solo edited out?

Don't forget, it might've been The Fillmore Concerts too
