The Allman Brothers Survive Two Losses
During the making of BROTHERS AND SISTERS, bassist Berry Oakley died, leaving guitarist Dickey Betts as the true leader of the band. His stamp is all over this CD, which ties with EAT A PEACH and the FILLMORE EAST album as the band's best. This album is the link between the latter-day Eagles and the early music of Whitesnake. The instrumental "Jessica" is what all jazz-rock fusion bands should have aspired to in the mid-70s. This is an album you must own.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Best Allman Brothers album ever!
Everyone seems to write off this album as being too commercial as a result of Duane Alman's death. Commercial or not, this is truly the band's watershed as a result of Dickey Betts' emergence as a songwriter and lead guitarrist. ''Ramblin' Man'' and ''Jessica'' are two of the finest specimens southern rock has ever produced, and ''Wasted Words,'' ''Jelly Jelly'' and ''Come and Go Blues'' show that the band hasn't lost touch with its bluesy roots. This album would be great as a fan's first ABB album because it has many of their biggest hits and shows off their musicianship incredibly well. A must-have for any classic rock fan.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
