Eat A Peach

August, 05 2017 | Atlanta History Center

From Atlanta Journal Constitution- August 1-Bo Emerson: The ATL Collective, a rotating ensemble known for staging full performances of notable albums, will re-create “Eat a Peach” in its entirety, including the lengthy “Mountain Jam” (which takes up two sides of the double album), in a one-time-only performance at the Atlanta History Center on Saturday, Aug. 5.

The center couldn’t have picked a more appropriate piece of Southern history to celebrate. “A lot of us have grown up with it,” guitarist and co-music director Rick Lollar said of the album. “It is in our bones.”

With 12 people up on stage, including four vocalists and a handful of drummers, the band brings considerable forces to the project. In the first set, the band will also re-enact another chapter of Georgia history, playing songs from the 1970 Atlanta International Pop Festival, where the Allmans shared the stage with Richie Havens and B.B. King, and Jimi Hendrix played a twisted version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” on a blistering July 4.

Attempting to capture the spirit of the music is as important as copying the content, Lollar said. “I want to be faithful and honor that music, but I don’t want to be slavishly trying to play the solos note for note. For that reason, the band will bring a new vibe to some songs, moving “Blue Sky” to a higher register, for example, to accommodate the range of female vocalist Kristina Train.For many musicians from the South, the album provided part of the backdrop of life.  […read full article]
