* DistinctDoubleAlbum: ''At Fillmore East'' was originally released as 2 LPs, the first containing blues covers and the second containing original pieces. Had the band had their way, it would have been a Distinct Triple Album with "Mountain Jam" on the third LP, which simultaneously credits Donovan Leitch (who wrote the original song "First There Is a Mountain") and each of the members of the Allman Brothers Band (who transformed Donovan's theme into their own piece).

* {{Cliffhanger}}: A rare musical example. After the end of "Whipping Post" on ''At Fillmore East'', we hear the band move into the first chords of "Mountain Jam" as the album fades out, a cliffhanger that wouldn't be resolved until a year later, when ''Eat A Peach'' came out with the remainder of the Fillmore East live tracks and some new studio material.

** The 23-minute version of "Whipping Post" off of ''At Fillmore East'' is their earliest, taking up a full side of the double LP. The 33-minute version of "Mountain Jam" (based on Donovan's ''[[MinisculeRocking two-minute long]]''(!) "There Is A Mountain") from ''Eat A Peach'' also qualifies, powering through "There Is A Mountain", "[[Music/JimiHendrix Third Stone From The Sun]]", and "May The Circle Be Unbroken", over ''two sides'' of an LP, featuring extended soloing and duelling between every band member, and reportedly fuelled by a bottle of whisky each. * GratuitousFrench: "Les Brers In A Minor". Dickey Betts confirms it's "bad French for 'less brothers'".

Though the faces in the band changed over the years, The Allman Brothers always delivered strong southern rock, heavily influenced by the blues. The band recently celebrated its 40th anniversary and is still active and touring today. Their associated acts include Gov't Mule (Warren Haynes' band) and The Derek Trucks Band (who focus more on World Music and African influences.) Their notable songs include "Ramblin' Man" and "Midnight Rider," among others.

One of the progenitors of SouthernRock music, '''The Allman Brothers Band''' originally consisted of [[CaptainObvious the brothers]] Duane and Gregg Allman, guitarist Dickey Betts, bassist Berry Oakley and drummers Butch Trucks and 'Jaimoe' Johanson. Founded in Jacksonville in 1969, they went two years in their original incarnation until Duane Allman was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident on October 29, 1971. Dickey Betts filled in for guitarist Duane and the group remained together, eventually adding pianist Chuck Leavell. About a year later, they lost another member, Berry Oakley, also to a motorcycle accident.
