Whilst this audience recording has always been traded as 01/28/71 at Fillmore West, San Francisco, there is considerable evidence to suggest that this is in fact neither the correct date nor the correct venue for this recording. Regarding the date, Wolfgang’s Vault has a partial soundboard recording of tracks that are clearly from the same show, and that is listed as 01/29/71. Regarding the venue, according to Kim Payne (ABB Roadie) the 29th was actually played at Winterland, not the Fillmore West. The ABB were booked to play the 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st at the Fillmore, but after playing there on the 28th for some reason (either technical or booking issues) they had to move over to Winterland for the 29th, then go back to the Fillmore for the 30th and 31st. The final piece of evidence comes from a radio recording that is in circulation where the DJ announces, “And now, live from Winterland, here’s ‘Whipping Post’ from the Allman Brothers’, and it is the same version of ‘Whipping Post’ that is on the traded show. So, in conclusion, this recording is almost certainly 01/29/71 at Winterland, San Francisco and not 01/28/71 at Fillmore West, San Francisco.
