This is an incredibel colleciton from one of the finest bands of all time, and a strong contender for the all time greatest American band.

For those who have tried to track down a copy of "The Road Goes On Forever" with no luck, well, you're in luck now. The Gold Collection is identical, retracing the band's activities from inception through 1979. The only thing missing is the fantastic artwork that went along with "Road Goes On." That is a shame, but ultimately it's the music that matters.

It's unlikely that you need an introduction to the band's sound; it's a southern-fried souflee of rock, blues, and country, but the real highlight for me is the guitars. Not to sell the amazing Dickey Betts short, but Duane Allman is one of the few instrumentalists that I could just sit and listen to for hours. He was in his own zone, in terms of sound and technique. The use of the song "Melissa" in a phone commercial recently made me ill. Put it on without any artificial, heart-tugging TV crap going on behind it and enjoy it for what it was; one of the great, underrated ballads. This whole collection is great (although I could live without "Hoochie Coochie Man").

Duane may be gone, but his legacy goes on.

Before I became big music fan, when I would think of the Allman Brothers Band - two things came to mind: 1) They had a nice catchy song in the early 1970s called, "Ramblin' Man"; 2) They have a lead singer and guitar player in Gregg Allman who was once married to Cher. Eventually I came to realize that I was very wrong. This is a band that really made their mark as first a Blues Band, and then expanded to a Southern Rock style. As I began to realize how much more the Allman Brothers Band was, I soon learned how the Allman Brothers Band did it - the old fashioned way: touring! The Allman Brothers Band are not the first band to build their reputation through touring - bands such as the Grateful Dead, Phish, and the Dave Matthews Band all built their fan base by touring. The Allman Brothers established this reputation in the early 1970s when they were emerging as a band. When the Allman Brothers Band got back together in the 1990s, they once again would re-establish themselves as a touring band. For a band that has been around since 1969 (with a hiatus in the mid-1980s), the Allman Brothers Band has amassed a large-sized music catalog. While there are several compilations of greatest hits available by the Allman Brothers Band, it is "Allman Brothers Band: Gold" that builds a two CD collection from the "glory days" of the band: 1969 to 1979. This collection does a very good job at integrating the elements of Blues, Southern Rock, and showcasing some of the live recordings that made the band famous.

The term "Southern Rock" is often a loaded term. Southern Rock involves the heavy use of the guitar and often combines imagery from the "Deep South". Southern Rock can refer to a variety of different styles and has also undergone several evolutions over the years.

Just put it on & let it play. You'll find it near impossible to hit the skip button. This brings us the Allmans in their 1970's prime. Dickie Betts, Duane Allman, it's all there. Some is studio, some live. From the classic long play "In memory of Elizabeth Reed" to the haunting sound of the beautifully arranged "Melissa.". Being re-mastered, the slide guitar Allman sound comes through beautifully. Don't miss this one!

This is an incredibel colleciton from one of the finest bands of all time, and a strong contender for the all time greatest American band. If you want an introduction to the band, get this! This is the only one of their "best of's" that does them justice. It has pretty much all of these songs from their first 5 classic albums. (about 25 of 35) and is much less than getting all their albums. (but you still might want to get Fillmore East.

When I got my first ABB CD (20th century...) I read a reivew that said "you WILL get more." I laughed at it because Jessica and Ramblin Man were all I needed. After listening to it, I had found the reviwer to be right, you will always want more ABB! The 15 dollars to get this CD may be the best 15 dollars that you will ever spend in your life!

Perfect for my music collection.

There are one too many Allmans compilations on the market, and Lord knows they all want to be the last word on the group. And though there's simply no possible way that this can be (the Duane Allman records are ESSENTIAL), this is the best Allmans compilation I've seen so far. Interestingly, all this does is expand on A Decade of Hits, which is probably the best single-disc retrospective of the group out there. However, some weaker tracks were included, at the expense of some stronger ones. We'll start at the beginning.

Don't Want You No More and Blackhearted Woman were easily the two weakest songs on the debut - they should be pulled. But the other four selections off that album (It's Not My Cross to Bear; Trouble No More; Dreams and Whipping Post) are the four best, and should stay. Don't Keep Me Wonderin' (off the excellent Idlewild South) has a fun harmonica part, but is nothing special; Hoochie Coochie Man is a decent song, but I would've preferred the underrated Please Call Home. Midnight Rider and Revival are great tunes for sure, but the studio version of In Memory of Elizabeth Reed is sorely missed (the live version from At Fillmore East, which is good but weaker, takes its place). Speaking of At Fillmore East, Statesboro Blues; Stormy Monday and Hot 'Lanta sure belong, but what about You Don't Love Me and Done Somebody Wrong? Okay, you COULD argue that You Don't Love Me is a bit too long for this compilation. Eh, At Fillmore East is indespensible in the first place. As is Eat a Peach, a must-have simply for the stunning Mountain Jam.
