MUDKISS RE-ISSUE OF THE MONTH FOR JULY - The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

A wonderfully packaged version of a blues rock classic is re-issue of the month over at Mudkiss.



There can be few classic albums of any era produced in the aftermath of personal tragedy as those experienced by The Allman Brothers band.  On October 29th 1971, keyboard player Gregg Allman lost a brother, the band and the world losing one of the great blues / slide guitarists of all time in founder member Duane, killed in a motorcycle accident.  Re-grouping without their inspired lead guitarist, the decision taken not to replace the irreplaceable,  instead the whole dynamic of the band changed with Dickey Bett’s, Duane’s fretwork partner, adopting sole guitar duties and the introduction of Chuck Leavell’s piano, replacing the more familiar twin guitar attack, they set about recording “Brothers and Sisters” the first album solely without Duane.
