I watched the Allman Brothers documentary “After The Crash” on The CW this past weekend, which inspired me to write this article.
I’ve had this album for a long time. My original copy was on that thick, heavy vinyl with all the nicks and pops. I have always gone back to this album to do Allman refreshers. After I got rid of all my vinyl, I was without this for a while and I tried to piece together a “Duane and Gregg” from compilations like “Dreams,” but I was never satisfied with the result.
Then one day I found out this album had been reissued on CD and my problem was solved. I listen to it frequently and enjoy every minute of it. Pick up a copy — you won’t be disappointed.
Another note: I saw the Allman Brothers at the Nashville Speedway back in the “Eat a Peach” period post-Duane but I’m not sure if Barry was on board. I finished up my live Allman Brothers experience in 2016 at Centre College with a show from Gregg’s final tour. I will always love the brothers’ music.

The following is a demo version but most of the tracks are pretty much identical to the original. It also shows Allman Brothers album covers and photographs during the music.
