On April 7, 1972, the Allman Brothers Band was asked to perform at Manley Field House on the Syracuse University campus. The ensuing performance captured a period of change for the beloved ensemble following the tragic passing of bandleader Duane Allman. To mark the occasion, they have announced the release of the live show on CD and digital for the first time.
