$5 MP3 Album Deal: The Allman Brothers Band ‘Eat A Peach’

Eat A Peach, one of the finest musical hours from The Allman Brothers Band, is now available in MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

To dismiss this album (and the band during these early years of their career) as simply “Southern Rock” would be a grave injustice and a wrongheaded opinion by a listener who didn’t really explore all it has to offer. Yes, the band struts it’s “southern style” of jazzy/rock/fusion/country cornpone at first look and listen, but it was and still is arguably able to suss up complex arrangements, high profile, and extremely long jam sessions within its songs that repel some and delight others; it’s definitely a taste thing to still listen to songs like “Mountain Jam” which go on for over 30 minutes in this fast, bite-sized world we exist in today. However, a patience to an untrained ear for this kind of music will pay off in spades. The first album post the tragic death of Duane Allman, who stands as possibly one of the greatest American guitarists of all time, second only to Jimi Hendrix, includes some tracks with him on it nonetheless, tracks that didn’t make it on the stellar Live at Fillmore East set recorded a year prior to the release of Eat A Peach. His presence looms even over the tracks recorded in the wake of his death, the album opener “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” and the radio friendly track “Melissa,” but the band really burns on the Fillmore East outtakes: the aforementioned “Mountain Jam,” the get down and boogie “One Way Out,” the Muddy Waters-composed “Trouble No More,” and especially the emotionally soulful songs “Blue Sky” and “Little Martha.” A nice sonic tapestry Eat A Peach remains indeed.
