Album Review

This live album was released by Capricorn Records largely as a way of raising money in a hurry, but it fares surprisingly well musically. The 1973-1974 Allman Brothers Band featured here is the one that most fans actually saw, since most listeners didn't discover them or get to their concerts until after the deaths of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. Wipe the Windows isn't a landmark release like the Fillmore tapes — a collection of rock's greatest guitar albums could be complete without it. But no Allman Brothers Band fan should pass up Wipe the Windows, which is a most solid live album, and, in particular, a better representation of the songs off of Brothers and Sisters and Win, Lose or Draw than the original studio versions. "Southbound," "Ramblin' Man," "Jessica," and, to a lesser degree, "Wasted Words" come off exceptionally well. This second-generation band, with Dickey Betts as the sole lead guitar and Gregg Allman and Chuck Leavell sharing the keyboards, also performs a preconceived version of "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" — they could never spark more fire than the version from the Fillmore, so they transform it into a moodier piece with more space for the keyboards to open up. Compiled from shows in New Orleans, San Francisco, Bakersfield, Oakland, and Watkins Glen (New York).

Customer Reviews

under appreciated and apparently unknown

i had expected there to be more than two reviews when i decided to write my own... anyway... this is amazing. i absolutely love the live versions of ramblin' man, jessica, it's not my cross to bear, adn my favorite, in memory of elizabeth reed. an excelent album for any 60s/70s rock fan looking to add to their collection. i highly recommend this.

Allman Brothers are amazing again

Excellent cd including Wasted Words, Jessica, and Southbound. In Memory of Elizabeth Reed is one of the best instrumentals around in southern rock. I wish Dickey came back for a third time.

Far Better Than You Think

I have to agree with the overall review. Although this is compiled from various concerts, it holds together remarkably well. The addition of Chuck Leavell gave the band a different feel during this period, and it shows on these live recordings. I saw the Brothers at Madison Square Garden in 1973 and so this set is as close I can get to my first ABB concert. Worth buying, and definitely worth listening to!

The story of the Allman Brothers Band is one of triumph, tragedy, redemption, dissolution, and more redemption. Since their beginning in the late '60s, they went from being America's single most influential band to a shell of their former self trading on past glories, to reach the 21st century resurrected as one of the most respected rock acts of their era. For the first half of the '70s, the Allman Brothers Band was the most influential rock group in America, redefining rock music and its boundaries....
