Overview

Essentially the Allman Brothers Band's Gold collection is an expanded version of both the Universal Masters and 20th Century Masters collections. It contains two discs that total 30 cuts and cover the band's catalog from 1969's Allman Brothers Band to 1975's Enlightened Rogues. There are five cuts from the first album, including the original studio version of "Whipping Post," and four from Idlewild South, including the studio read of "Midnight Ride." The cuts from At Fillmore East number four with the inclusion of the 13-minute "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed," and five from Eat a Peach, including "Melissa," "Blue Sky," and "Ain't Wasting Time No More." Five cuts come from Brothers and Sisters and, yes, "Ramblin' Man" and "Jessica" are among them. There is one swipe off Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollar Gas; two from Win, Lose or Draw; and three from Enlightened Rogues. In other words, fans have everything already, and for those who are just being introduced to the ABB through their latter incarnation with Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, there is a lot here, though beginning with At Fillmore East probably makes much more sense.

Let's get the deception out of the way. This is merely the retitled Road Goes On Forever CD collection with a new cover and title. Frankly, I like the old cover better. How the BMG reviewer overlooked that fact is puzzling. I am reviewing my RGOF collection here since it is out of print. This is some of the best blues rock ever recorded. Not only were Duane Allman and Dickey Betts a great team, but Gregg Allman's vocals and organ and the rhythm section were also top notch. No Southern band could touch them.After Duane's untimely death the band moved more into country and jazz. Disc 1 and the first few cuts on Disx 2 feature Duane and the rest is from 1972-79. Except for In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed, the tracks are under 10 minutes. If you are interested in their long jams, get one of the complete Fillmore sets and the Atlanta Pop Festival set.
