Eat a Peach is a 1972 double album by the American Southern rock group The Allman Brothers Band; it was the last to include founding member and lead slide-guitar player Duane Allman, who was killed in a motorcycle accident on October 29, 1971 while the album was being recorded.
This album came close on the heels of their breakthrough At Fillmore East (1971) set and featured live tracks that did not make it onto that album, including boogie classic "One Way Out" and two entire album sides devoted to "Mountain Jam", a 33-minute improvisation based around Donovan's song "There Is a Mountain."
The remainder of the album was recorded in-studio and served to cement the band's reputation as innovative Southern rockers. Several tracks featured a new emphasis on more-lyrical acoustic work, notably on "Melissa" and the guitar classic "Little Martha." The lilting "Blue Sky" became an album-oriented rock radio staple, while "Ain't Wastin' Time No More" served as both a quiet generational anthem and a personal statement of purpose by the band in the face of Duane's death.
