The Allman Brothers - Eat a Peach

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

THE ALLMAN’S MASTERPIECE CONQUERED AT LAST! I don’t think you could find a more tubey magical Southern Rock record than this! We just shot out a huge stack of these double LPs, no mean feat, and this Original Capricorn pressing manhandled the competition, rating A++ or better on ALL FOUR SIDES. Not only that, but the vinyl plays mostly Mint Minus throughout -- exceptionally quiet for an old Allman Brothers record.

Product Detail

This and Live At Fillmore East are the two monumental albums these guys ever put out, and they have a lot in common. You know what you're gonna get with the Allmans: dueling electric guitars, sweet acoustic guitars, energetic drumming, and full-bodied vocals throughout. There's obviously a lot of exploration -- two complete sides are dedicated to the song Mountain Jam -- but the heartfelt radio-friendly songs such as Melissa and Little Martha keep up the energy and enjoyment factor.

The Three Keys: Transparency, Energy, and WHOMP

A super transparent, super lively copy like this one really lets everything that's great about this music come through. You can easily pick out each of the musicians and follow their contributions over the course of the songs. The huge WHOMP factor throughout kicks up the excitement factor and sets the necessary foundation for the crazy guitar jams to sound correct. The top end has the kind of extension necessary to bring out all the ambience and spaciousness.

It's Got The Goods On All Four Sides

What a copy! Sides one and four rate A++, side two is half a step up at A++ - A+++, and side three has SUPERB A+++ sound, the best we heard in our shootout. Three of the best songs on this album -- One Way Out, Blue Sky, and Little Martha -- are all on the A+++ side, you get a lot of bang for your Triple Plus buck with this White Hot Stamper.

What do such high grades give you for this album? Unbelievably tubey magical guitars, huge whomp factor to the bottom end, incredible dynamics and life, shocking transparency and clarity, and the kind of immediacy that puts these crazy southern rockers right there in your living room. The overall sound is BIG, BOLD, and HUGE!

Good Luck Finding Such A Quiet, Superb Sounding Copy!

Having just finished playing a big ol' stack of these, I can tell you that most of them don't sound very good. Most of them are a bit thick and lack the energy needed to bring this music to life. I haven't played a MoFi of this in years, but I can't imagine they'd be able to make any sense of the punchy, rock 'em, sock 'em bottom end that's so essential to this band.
