The Allman Brothers released their third studio and fourth overall LP “Eat a Peach” on Feb. 12, 1972.
Eat a Peach contains live recordings from the band’s famed Fillmore East performances, but primarily functions as a group studio effort. The album contains the extended, half-hour-long “Mountain Jam,” as well as Gregg Allman’s tribute to his brother Duane, “Melissa,” plus “Blue Sky”, which became a radio staple. Album artwork was created by W. David Powell and J. F. Holmes at Wonder Graphics, and depicts the band’s name on a peach truck, in addition to a large gatefold mural of mushrooms and fairies. The album’s title came from a quote by Duane Allman: “You can’t help the revolution, because there’s just evolution … Every time I’m in Georgia, I eat a peach for peace.”
There are some who say that the term “Eat a Peach” has a different meaning and we are sure it will be mentioned in the comments.
There are some who think this is one of the best works ever by the ABB. Where would you rate it?
Happy 46th Birthday to The Allman Brothers LP “Eat A Peach”!!!!
