Performer: The Allman Brothers Band
Engineer: Jay Mark; Bud Snyder...
Producer: Tom Dowd...
Distributor: Sony Music Distribution (
Notes: Also available as a 3-pack with AN EVENING WITH THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND-1ST SET and 2ND SET. The Allman Brothers Band: Gregg Allman (vocals, Hammond B-3 organ); Dickey Betts (vocals, acoustic, electric & steel guitars); Warren Haynes (vocals, electric & slide guitars); Johnny Neel (piano, Wurlitzer piano, synthesizer, background vocals); Allen Woody (electric, fretless, 5- & 8-string basses); Butch Trucks (drums, timpani); Jaimoe (drums, percussion). Additional personnel: Mark Morris (percussion); Duane Betts. The reunited Allman Brothers' first studio album in nine years proved to be one of their strongest sets ever, setting the stage for their '90s resurgence as one of rock's best live acts. The title song is a folk gospel number with much harmony singing (unusual for the Allmans), while "True Gravity" is a virtuoso instrumental that makes hair-pin turns between two chord blues rock vamps and skittering unison jazz riffs. Although guitarist Dickie Betts wrote or co-wrote most of the songs, the rest of the material here isn't at all country-tinged. In fact, this is one of the band's bluesiest albums ever, from the old-time boogie woogie of "Let Me Ride," to "Low Down Dirty Mean," which begins as minimalist acoustic country blues and ends as a full-bore assault by the entire band.
They're known as the founding fathers of Southern rock, but the Allman Brothers were actually much more progressive than the musical school they inspired. They reclaimed the US-influenced blues-rock of Cream et al. and brought it back to America, adding country and jazz touches. They were noted for their improvisatory skills, particularly the inspired dual-guitar work of Dickey Betts and the late Duane Allman. Even after the deaths of Duane and original bassist Berry Oakey and the departure of Betts, the band soldiered on strongly into the 21st century, led by founding singer/organist Gregg Allman.
