The Allman Brothers Band arrived at apoint in history when rock, jazz, country and blues were colliding in a volatile fusion.
In 1969, when The Allman Brothers Band was recorded, no major group marshaled all those musical elements more effectively. Led by the consummate playing skills of guitarists Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, the singing and songwriting of Gregg Allman and the relentless rhythm section of drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe and bassist Berry Oakley (plus Greggs organ), the band staked out a uniquely American claim on the rock-music vanguard at the end of a decade dominated by British innovators.
