Manley Field House, Syracuse University, April 7, 1972, dropping January 12, captures a concert during the group’s brief Five-Man-Band period, following the October 1971 death of Duane Allman, which saw them playing over 40 shows with a lineup of only five original members: Gregg AllmanDickey BettsBerry OakleyButch Trucks and Jaimoe.
