Brothers and Sisters

Tragedy strikes the Allman Brothers again! This time it's bassist Berry Oakley death in eerily similar circumstances as Duane Allman. Undaunted, the band carries on. Recruiting Lamar Williams on the bass and Chuck Leavell on the keyboards, guitarist Dickey Betts takes over leadership and the lion's share of guitar work. The results were a more of country flavored album with superb classics like the boogie romp"Southbound", the crossover country smash "Ramblin' Man" and the buoyant instrumental "Jessica". This album is a classic!
