My review of EAP deluxe
Well, I guess if you do not own the original EAP and you feel compelled to have the private party closing show at the Fillmore (it was originally an FM broadcast and traded around for years) you will need to have this bitter sweet success for the band that turned out to be at the time of its release a memorial tribute to Duane, who had passed away less than 4 months before the release. This version makes even more of a compilation recording than the original which was produced around the failed start of their third studio recording that was supposed to be called the” kind they grow in south” and was to be all original material showcasing their writing talent, of course taking advantage the commercial momentum they were achieving with the July 71 release of the Fillmore concerts that turned gold days before Duane tragic death.
The debriefing recordings of new material completed just wks after Duane’s motor cycle accident along with the sentimental recording Mellisa Duane’s favorite song by his younger brother give a hint of why they wanted it to be just new material. However it is Hard to imagine that most likely Mountain Jam a die- hards favorite may have not been heard in ’72 if Duane lived while this One way version (and boldly added twice here) was not the bands favorite version however anything with Duane was exceptional by most standards and the legendary producer Tom Dowd understood this. The title was changed after Duanes death to refer to quote in one his interviews when referring to what he has done the anti war movement he said” He Eats a peach for peace” what kind of peach can be left up to our imagination. EAP is a classic and beloved by all Allman brother diehard fans Most of whom wish that someone for this deluxe version could have dug up the infamous real closing show of the 26th the night before the FM private party and considered the holy grail of the Duane’s live legacy... Let all Eat a peach for Peace and may the road go on forever.

I'd love to hear that concert of the night of the 26th.

Is it traded as a bootleg?

The Holy Grail of all ABB shows was the weekend of 3/13/71 -- and there was Mr. Dowd in the truck, recording it for all time
Nothing, even 6/26, could top the WP/Mtn. Jam that got onto the records -- for sound, and for how the band was playing, it remains the tops -- 9/16 is awesome (thank you Mr. Dubois), so is the Georgia Terrace one (thank you Ann & Johnny Sandlin) -- they are all great, but, the FE/EAP WP/Mtn. Jam can't be topped IMO

I sure would like to hear the 6.26 show so I could make up my own mind. According to what I have read from Butch, it was the best they had ever played that night/morning. Maybe one day we will hear it, but I also have read that the tape recorder was not on that night.

Yeah Bro, I agree too about the 3/13/71 jam. That version seems to be a one time thing or least one that was recorded. I doubt at this point anything will come up about the 26th show however no one that I am aware of has even posted a set list from the infamous 6/26/71 show.

Yeah that's what seems surprising -- no setlist or too specific recollection of a night at a sold out house & stuff -- that jam must have gone on for hours & hours -- seems like the music must have been quite different even for the Brothers on that night -- intriguing

and yet, it's like if something ever did surface it would probably be a rough audience recording & incomplete given its length etc -- might be kind of a letdown in a way -- but it'd be fun to find out for sure

Maybe the 6.26.71 show will be the archival release that seems to be never going to be released. I wish.

the 6/26/71 Fillmore East so called story is that amongst the partying, no one remembered to turn the tape machines on. Also, many years ago, there was a fire at Bill Grahams S.F. (marin county?) home (while he was still alive) and some concluded that many "secret" tapes were lost in the fire. There's a similar fire story about some
Atlantic Records tapes (after many tapes were moved to a storage facility in N.J.)....

the Allmans 6/26/71 show is so legendary that it is very hard to believe an undiscovered tape exists. wish it wasn't that way....

If I had to suggest just one ABB record for anyone to own, it would be the deluxe Eat a Peach.
