|At Fillmore East track listing|
"Hot 'Lanta" is an instrumental piece performed by the Allman Brothers Band. It debuted on their live album At Fillmore East, released in July 1971, the fifth track on the album. "Hotlanta" is a nickname for Atlanta, Georgia and is a portmanteau of the words "hot" and "Atlanta".
The song begins with a statement of the theme, followed by solos from Gregg Allman (organ), Duane Allman (guitar), and Dickey Betts (guitar). There is then a (duet) drum break, and then a restatement of the theme, which ends on a dissonant chord that fades into a drone of organ and intermittent snare drum rolls, then growing into a powerful crescendo accentuated by the timpani playing of drummer Butch Trucks.
