Editorial Reviews

The swagger and soul of the Allmans' 1969 debut made it one of the best first albums by any band. They dig into the blues with Muddy Waters' Trouble No More and go beyond it with It's Not My Cross to Bear; Dreams ; their classic Whipping Post , and more!

Customer Reviews

A great debut by the Allman Brothers Band.
Mark Steiner
Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I do think it adds some nice drama to end the song with, anyway!
Shelby Lambert
These 4 albums are arguably the greatest first 4 albums ever produced in the rock era.

Despite much great music with a variety of players up to this day, nothing can really top this first Allman Brothers release. The tunes are solid from beginning to end. It's no surprise that most of them have become standards.

It's also no surprise, that at the time of its release, the album was largely ignored. American blues-based rock was still not very popular, and these guys were Southerners to boot.

But other musicians took note; one of them was Eric Clapton. (Give a listen some time to Eric and Duane dueting on Mean Old World.)

Anyway, Idlewild South, as a whole was not up to this eponymous debut, and soon Duane would be gone. Eat A Peach was ambitious, but much dominated by Duane's playing on Mountain Jam. Then that wonderful and under-appreciated bassist Berry Oakley would be gone, too.

The ABB would have its ups and downs and be a breeding ground for great musicians and a continuing fount of great music, but nothing has yet topped the tight, focused, writing, playing, and sequencing of this first album. It is a perfect record.

This is an album full of excellent music by the early Allman Brothers Band. However, for an additional [money] you can purchase their album BEGINNINGS, which contains all of this album plus all of their second album, Idlewilde South. Both albums are truly first rate, and you get them both on one CD if you just buy BEGINNINGS.

There is nothing, I repeat, nothing weak about this album. From the beginning of the first track "Don't Want You No More", it takes only a nanosecond to be hooked by the genius that was the original Allman Brothers lineup. The only complaint that I could come close to making would be that the album is too short coming in at under thirty-five minutes. The same is true of the afformentioned opening track. At only 2:25, it always leaves me wanting more.
Obviously, Duane Allman is everywhere here. "Black Hearted Woman" has some real mean licks, as does "Every Hungry Woman". I disagree with an earlier reviewer that "Dreams" is a bit too long. At about seven minutes, it's just right. Hypnotic and slow grooving, there just isn't a better song on the album which brings me to "Whipping Post". This is a great tune that can't really be appreciaited unless you're attempting to blow your speakers by cranking them to 11. The opening bass and Duane's solo should be pretty recognizeable.
The first four albums by The Allman Brothers Band are all excellent, including this one. Each one doesn't quite sound like any other so enjoy this one early and often.

As you probably know by now, I love debut albums! And the year, 1969, was one of the best years ever for them. Such great first efforts by artists like Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Santana, Grand Funk Railroad, Mountain, the James Gang, Led Zeppelin, Chicago. This first album by the Allman Brothers Band, however, ranks among the best debuts of 1969, and the more I listen to it, the more it reminds me a lot of Santana's debut album from the same year, and a little bit of Aerosmith's debut a few years later. Unlike many Allman albums to come, when they started to evolve into what we now fashionably call "Southern Rock", this one combined more of the latin/funk, percussive rhythms and organ-driven, blues-wailing jams of Santana's debut album, together with the urban swagger and attitude of Aerosmith's debut album--Aerosmith and Allman's debut albums also having in common the same producer, Adrian Barber, with his raw, dusty, "flip-the-switch-and-let'em-bang-out-the-tunes-'til-we-get-tired-and-fade'em-out"-style of production. And like Aerosmith and Santana's debut albums, there's not a whole lot of songs on this first album. It's short, sweet, and to the point--and tells you all you need to know about the band at the time.

Considering the fact that nearly all but two songs here were written by Gregg Allman (the rest were "covers") and that all the songs were sung by Gregg Allman, it's amazing when you realise that he was only brought into the group at the last minute! No one else in the band were writing songs at the time. Dickey Betts would write songs later, but he had just come from a "mostly" covers band called the "Second Coming". No one else was really a "singer" then, either. How fortunate they must have been for Duane Allman to think about calling his brother, Gregg, in from L.A.

The Allman Brothers are one of those bands that I have "discovered" rather late in life. Years ago I worked in radio for a year and we were able to bring albums home from the station to borrow overnight if we wanted to listen to something. I remember borrowing "Eat A Peach" and "Enlightened Rouge" and thought they were both good, but it did not make we want to run out and buy a bunch of Allmans stuff. Over the past 10 years I have discovered a growing appreciation of blues based music and thus went back to re look at the Allmans. The result was basically falling in love with their material and I have since picked up much of their stuff. The first Allman Brothers album has to rank up there with the best debut albums of all time. The album contains classic after classic, "Not My Cross To Bear", "Don't Want You No More", "Trouble No More", "Dreams" and the band's most well known classic "Whipping Post" The album is solid all the way through and formed the blueprint of all that came after.
