Fifty years ago tonight a band that wasn't even the headliner took the stage at Fillmore East, Johnny Winters was.

Play all night! an audience member yelled On March 11th, 12th, and 13th of 1971, The Allman Brothers Band performed at Bill GrahamFillmore East, and recorded it for a live album. Advertisements for the shows read: Bill Graham Presents in New York  Johnny Winter And, Elvin Bishop Group, Extra Added Attraction: Allman Brothers. Though while Winter was billed as the headliner, by the third night, the Allman Brothers were closing the show.

This picture wasn't even taken in New York, but in Macon:

Despite being recorded in New York City, the album cover photo was actually taken on a very cold day in Macon, GA, where the band all lived. Apparently, the band was having trouble in cooperating with the photographer that day, giving scowling looks toward the camera. At one point, a man walked up over next to our truck and Duane jumped up and ran over to him, and the photographer starts screamin and hollerin, explains Butch Trucks of the experience. Then Duane came back and sat down, and we all busted out laughin and THAT is the picture. That is the ONLY picture from the whole day with everybody laughin. And if you look, Duanes got his hands like this. [folded]. What he had done was ran over and picked up a little eight ball of cocaine. If theres anything you need to know about Live At Fillmore East, thats it.

I was cleaning all of our patio furniture to it, bright sunshiny day.

Sad thinking that Duane was a short timer even then, he's got about seven months left.
