Level of familiarity before listening
I’ve had an Allman Brothers playlist in my regular rotation for two decades.
What I expected
Blues rock, country rock, rock.
What it was actually like
I almost panicked for a moment when, at a glance, it didn’t look like this two-record compilation album included Jessica, my favorite Allman Brothers song – but I’d just overlooked it and it was right there on side 4, between Wasted Words and everyone else’s favorite Allman Brothers song, Ramblin’ Man.
Not surprisingly for anyone who’s ever listened to the Allman Brothers or been a fan of their music, this was a fantastic collection and every minute of it was excellent.
5/5: love it
