The Good & Bad Of 'The Allman Brothers 'Brothers On The Road'
6 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the Allman Brothers in concert at the Capitol Theater in the mid-to-early 1980s. Also on the tape is a two-song, 10-minute unplugged session. I found this - maybe because it was different - to be the most interesting segment to watch and hear. Greg Allman just plays and sings by himself on "Come and Go Blues." I appreciated his acoustic guitar work on that number.

The rest of this is the ordinary Allman Brothers concert, meaning good songs but nothing visually to offer. Most of it solid, hard-driving rock and blues with some excellent guitar playing by Dickie Betts. However, since so much of the music is the same, it gets to be too much after awhile. A good slow, bluesy-type number in the middle would have improved this tape a lot.

On personal tastes, I always thought "One Way Out" was their best number and it sounds great here, too. The 13-minute "The Judgment," featuring a long drum solo, was nothing special, unless you enjoy long drum solos.
