The Allman Brothers Band Selections From Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992 on Limited Edition 180g 2LP

Selections from Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992 highlights the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers' first-ever extended run at the venerable New York City venue, an annual residency that has since become a certifiable rock 'n' roll tradition. The album was produced by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Warren Haynes from the original recordings overseen by long-time Allman's producer, the late Tom Dowd.

The band's 1989 reunion revivified the Allman Brothers Band, leading to a pair of acclaimed studio albums and a full-fledged return to the road. The addition of percussionist Marc Quinones in 1990 finally brought to life the triple percussion ensemble Duane had envisioned when first uniting the band and by 1992, The Allman Brothers Band were definitely in an unstoppable groove.

The Brothers' 1992 spring itinerary saw the band carry on its special relationship with New York City by settling into the landmark Beacon Theatre for an extended 10-night run. Specifically selected for coming closest in spirit to Bill Graham's long gone Fillmore East, the beloved Upper West Side venue had previously hosted the ABB during their 1989 reunion tour and felt to the band like a place they could call home.

The 1992 Beacon set finds the band showcasing such stone cold classics as "Statesboro Blues," "Blue Sky," "Jessica," "Revival," and of course, "Whipping Post," all played with the distinctive invention and muscularity that defined this particular ABB line-up. Additional highlights include an elongated "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed" – complete with incendiary Betts and Haynes solos, roaring Woody bass and a thunderous percussive break by Jaimoe, Trucks, and Quinones – as well as a stunning "Dreams," Gregg's immediately identifiable voice infusing every lyric with history, nuance, and soulful emotion.

As ever, the set list features a number of classic blues, spanning obscurities to staples such as "Hoochie Coochie Man," here marked by Haynes' lead vocals and snarling slide work. Furthermore, Play All Night also sees the Brothers unplug for an acoustic interlude which encompasses a bare-boned rendition of Allman's "Midnight Rider."

"1991-92 was a period of great creativity for that configuration of the Allman Brothers," explains Haynes, "and these shows capture a true moment in time for the group. It's cool that the acoustic set is included, because it gives the fans a chance to hear some rare versions of particular songs. All in all, I think Play All Night represents how on fire that band could be on any given night at that point in their history."
