Album Review

The Allman Brothers Band's comeback album, and their best blues-based outing since Idlewild South that restored a lot of their reputation. With Tom Dowd running the session, and the group free to make the music they wanted to, they ended up producing this bold, rock-hard album, made up mostly of songs by Dickey Betts (with contributions by new keyboardman Johnny Neel and lead guitarist Warren Haynes), almost every one of them a winner. Apart from the rippling opening number, "Good Clean Fun," which he co-authored, Gregg Allman's contribution is limited to singing and the organ, but the band seem more confident than ever, ripping through numbers like "Low Down Dirty Mean," "Shine It On," and "Let Me Ride" like they were inventing blues-rock here, and the Ornette Coleman-inspired "True Gravity" is their best instrumental since "Jessica."

Customer Reviews

Latter Day Allman Effort Should Be Placed Amongst Their Classics

Totally disagree with the last writer. While not as good as Eat a Peach or Brothers/Sisters, it's just a cut below. I consider it an essential in my Allman's catalog. Why? It has the allingredients of a great album: a variety of styles to keep it interesting, great songwriting, musicianship, and production. While none of the songs is a 'Blue Sky' or 'Jessica' all of the songs here are solid. And having Warren Haynes and legendary pianist Chuck Leavell, of Bros/Sisters - Clapton Unplugged, and Stones fame, on top of the classic lineup, makes it a sweet listen.

seven turns

Very mediocre. With out Duane, and later Oakley the Bros were just never the same. A few songs are bearable such as good "Good Clean Fun" but Brothers and Sisters was their last strong album. If your just getting in to the Allman Brothers, Id recomend getting chronicles or begginings where they were really on top of their game. This album is probably more for the faithful followers.

really good

I had not heard this album in a long time and listened to again recently and was amazed at how good this album is. While it is true that Duane Allman was one of the best he has been dead for a long time. The guitar on this rocks, and Gregg sounds great and keep an open mind and you might be pleasantly surprised. I know that I was and sat down and listened to it again and it got even better.
