allman brothers band: brothers and sisters (released august 1973).

Brothers and Sisters reshifted the Allman Brothers Band’s music following the deaths of founders Duane Allman and Berry Oakley by balancing leadership roles between Gregg Allman and guitarist Dickey Betts. But instead of twin guitar sounds, Betts worked off of leads from pianist Chuck Leavell. The result, curiously, was a commercial breakthrough by way of two Betts tunes – the radio staple Ramblin’ Man and the instrumental tour-de-force Jessica (a showcase for Leavell). Fine Allman originals like Come and Go Blues made the Brothers and Sisters balance the proud voice of a new Allman Brothers Band.
