The Allman Brothers Band "Eat a Peach" Album
1972’s “Eat a Peach” by Allman Brothers Band was dedicated to the memory of founder Duane Allman, who died in motorcycle crash in 1971 as the group was recording it. They went on to complete what became a double album as a mix of studio recordings (with and without Duane) and live recordings from the band's famed 1971 Fillmore East performances. With classics such as Duane's favorite song, "Melissa," plus "Blue Sky", “Ain’t Wastin Time No More, and “One Way Out,” “Eat a Peach” cemented the band's popularity, reaching number four on the Billboard charts and earning them platinum status.
