Editorial Reviews

By the time they released their fifth album BROTHERS AND SISTERS in August 1973, The Allman Brothers Band had experienced dizzying highs and soul-crushing lows. The group had spent its first two years developing its formidable collective chemistry into an unprecedented stylistic fusion that established it as the era's most influential American rock act. But just as the band had achieved a hard-won commercial breakthrough with 1971's At Fillmore East, it suffered a devastating loss with the death of Duane Allman, its founder, leader and musical visionary, in a motorcycle crash on October 29, 1971.

Following Duane's traumatic passing, the band regained its bearings and soldiered on, with Duane's brother, singer/organist Gregg Allman, and guitarist/vocalist Dickey Betts now the lone axeman in an act famous for its dual-guitar fireworks-assuming more prominent roles in its direction. The musicians marshaled their strengths to make BROTHERS AND SISTERS their first album recorded completely without Duane a decisive creative rebirth as well as their best-selling release to date.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS bested the sales of At Fillmore East and Eat A Peach, spending five weeks at #1 and becoming the first Allman Brothers Band release to gain Platinum sales status.

This 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition includes BROTHERS AND SISTERS (Original Recording Remastered) in addition to a second disc of previously unreleased James, Rehearsals, and Outtakes.

THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE 4 CD 40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION.

Plane and simple--if you like the original album--you need to purchase this new edition of this classic album. All the good things in the original album are still here, but magnified several times over. The original album was a real test to see if the ABB would continue to make good, vital, exciting music. The answer was obvious on first listening to the original album. And now we have both studio and live tracks that add substantially to the original albums listening experience. With both Duane Allman and Berry Oakley gone, the core sound of the band shifted towards both Gregg Allman and Dickie Betts. Together they helped push the bands sound into something slightly different.

Nothing much needs to be said about the original album--it stands as a classic. But where things begin to get interesting is in the unheard studio tracks. Listen to a more laid back version of "Wasted Words". The slower tempo and Betts' slide guitar give this a tune a lighter feel. "Trouble No More" sounds more like a finished track than simply a rehearsal version. "One Way Out" is an instrumental--sounding like a backing track--but it has some typically fine Betts' guitar. "I'm Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town" combines Allman's jazzy organ and Betts' country inflected blues guitar. Allman gives this song one of his typically good blues vocals. This tune was used by the band to see if pianist Chuck Leavell would fit into the band--check out his playing and hear for yourself. The old Elmore James tune "Done Somebody Wrong" has no real surprises, but starting with this tune, all the rest of the tracks feature Lamar Williams on bass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wasted Words September 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I enjoy the music on this album very much. Duane Allman had been the leader of this band until his untimely death. His brother, Gregg was left to pick up the pieces and keep the band going. In addition, Berry Oakley died during the making of this album, appearing on only the first two tracks. Against such adversity the band develops one of the defining albums of 1973. Gregg Allman really does hold his own with superb playing and by contributing two great songs true to the tradition of the Blues. JELLY, JELLY is a soulfull tune influenced by T Bone Walker and the Chicago Blues. It is Richard "Dickey" Betts who really comes up with the goods by stepping forward with a bona-fide hit, RAMBLIN' MAN, and the remainder of the songs as well as playing guitar which now defines Southern Rock. Whether he is playing Dobro in the style of the Mississippi Blues Singers on PONY BOY, or a firey lead on SOUTHBOUND, trading licks with Les Dudek while singing on RAMBLIN' MAN, it is Betts who defines the sound of this Allman Brothers' CD. JESSICA is possibly one of the best travelling songs ever written, and it is Dickey Betts' melodic, distinctly southern guitar playing that will stick in my mind as I fondly remember this CD. Anything else I would write would just be WASTED WORDS. If you are interested in US Southern Rock of the early seventies, or in great guitar music which is based on American Folk Blues, this CD will be interesting to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yep! January 2, 2007
By Skydog
Format:Audio CD
Brothers and Sisters is one of the all-time best records!

I've been a fan since the beginning so I know my ABB. The previous reviews seem to be about the album's content which I won't dispute except to add that brother Richard Betts was an integral part of the band and can't be separated from their legacy. He influenced a generation of guitar players and has contributed some of the most amazing guitar solos in recording history. I just want to be clear that while some may have felt he stood somewhat in the shadow of brother Duane, I believe he certainly stands on his own as a great musician, singer and songwriter responsible for many of the Allman Brothers Band's best tunes and most memorable guitar lines.

What I mainly want to comment on here is the Remastered version of Brothers and Sisters. I was sorely disappointed in the sound quality as compared to the record album. Unfortunately, they "cleaned it up" to the detriment of the music. Here are the specific problems I spotted. The worst offense is the amount of emphasis inflicted on the vocals: it makes brother Gregg's vocal too bright and clean sounding (when he had probably just smoked an entire pack of cigs prior to cutting each track to get some more gravel in his voice as Cat Stevens used to do), and the same vocal-tinkering makes Dickey sound like a 12 year old boy, unlike the LP which is an accurate recording of how their voices sounded.

The other problems I have with this Remaster is the snare drum and cymbals are also sonically enhanced to the point of causing ear fatigue ... it stresses me out, man! The LP was mellower AND you could hear the tambourine. Also I miss the beautiful rumble of Chuck Leavell's honkytonk piano ... now all sparkly clean (and sounding more like a toy) on this Remaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bouquets for the living. June 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The timing is perfect for the 40th anniversary release of the Allman Brother's album "Brothers And Sisters". Rounder Record's retrospective of Duane Allman has been a huge success, Gregg Allman's bio "My Cross To Bear" has gotten rave reviews, as well as his latest solo outing "Low Country Blues". With "Brothers And Sisters", we can revisit the many contributions of Dickie Betts-the man who truly stepped up after the deaths of Duane and bassist Berry Oakley.

For a short time in late 1971-early 1972, the brothers carried on as a five piece band after Duane's death. Hiring another guitarist to replace Duane was out of the question, so Alabama pianist Chuck Leavell was brought on board. This was a gamble, but a brilliant move. Betts carried the burden as the only guitarist in a band heralded for its twin guitar attack. Chuck's piano gave the band a jazzier direction and harmonized with Bett's lead lines beautifully.

The brothers were recording Brothers And Sisters" when tragedy again struck-Berry Oakley was killed in a motorcycle crash similar to Duane's on November 11, 1972. Again the band moved forward, recruiting Lamar Williams, an old friend of drummer Jaimoe who impressed everyone during his audition.

"Brothers And Sisters" was recorded chronologically-"Wasted Words" and "Ramblin' Man" are the only two tracks from the original release to feature Oakley. On the remastered edition, the bass is heard to much greater advantage. Although "Brothers And Sisters" is far and away the best selling of the Brother's albums, quite a few listeners found the original mix to be "muddy".
