Peakin' at the Beacon

The Allman Brothers Band's famed sold out Beacon runs in New York have been a thing for this legendary band. However, this live recording isn't as great as their earlier recordings. Could it be the tension building up within the band? This is the only album to showcase the Dickey Betts/ Derek Trucks guitar combo. Unfortunately I can't find a video with Betts and Trucks together, but this tune from later in the same tour with Jimmy Herring on the guitar will have to do.
