Incredible clarity and surround mix especially on live trax

Firstly let me say again that I hate this Play thing where you cant use proper punctuation in your reviews. Please change it back to the way it was!
This classic Allmans offering was originally issued as a double album in a gatefold sleeve in early 1972. The Super Audio CD issue is a hybrid disc offering a stereo and surround mix with menu on SACD players and a stereo only mix on CD players.
The fast-paced RnB number Trouble No More - the 33 minute epic Mountain Jam and One Way Out were all recorded live at the Fillmore East in 1971 and include Duane Allman (to whom the album was dedicated). All other tracks were recorded at Criteria Studios Miami and all except Aint Wastin Time No More - Les Breres in A Minor and the slow bluesy drawl of Melissa (a single at the time) also feature Duane.
The surround mix is superb throughout which is especially good for the live tracks as live surround mixes often just feature the band in the front with audience noise and a bit of echo in the rear.
If you like the Allmans or southern rock this is well worth buying even if you already have the vinyl and CD as I do. Get it quick before it vanishes forever like most other DVD Audios and SACD surround mixes have done but dont pay some of the OTT prices already being asked.
