The Allman Brothers Band recorded live for FM broadcast at Madison Square Garden in New York City on October 31, 1986. The group had played only one other show in 1986 - prior to which they hadn't performed together since disbanding in 1982 - and had no further plans to tour or record, but were certainly in good form here regardless. The band stuck to old material, reviving "One Way Out," "Statesboro Blues," "Blue Sky" and "Midnight Rider" - appropriate for a set that began at midnight. Blues-based, country-flavored and laced with bits of jazz and gospel from pianist Chuck Leavell - who hadn't played with the group since 1976 - the high points came in Dickey Betts' guitar solos, with his ringing tone and slowly spiraling phrases, and in the crossfire between drummers Jai Johnny Johanson and Butch Trucks. Carlos Santana, Stephen Stills and Mick Taylor even join in the fun for an excellent "Key To The Highway."
