Aint Nothin' But The Blues

This debut recording by the Allman Brothers is pure blues and little else. However, it features some top notch guitar playing by Duane Allman and Dickey Betts not to mention Greg Allman passionate vocals.

The best song on this collection is clearly the last track, Whipping Post. What a searing bass line. Then followed by dueling guitars and bluesy vocals telling a tale of sorrow and woe. A true classic tune.

Blackhearted Woman and It Aint My Cross To Bear are probably the best of the rest. The other tunes are OK but a bit limited in style. Dreams is a slight diversion but the song just is a bit too long even with the pretty solo work by Duane.

The Allman Brothers would do better on follow up work particularly on Idlewide South and Brothers And Sisters. None the less, any fan of the band would still appreciate this recording.
