Format: Audio CD
If you mention the Allman Brothers Band to a lot of people they just give you a blank look, but if you are into Southern Rock you will immediately recognise the name. If you watch 'Top Gear' you will recognise the second track on this album, 'Jessica' straight away, as it is the theme tune.

You have on this fifteen track album all their rock anthems which you may already know, even if you are new to this band. One of the pioneers of Southern Rock, The Allman Brothers Band took in different genres of music and made them their own, with their unforgettable rock beat.

This is a great album to listen to, and is an ideal introduction to this group, as well as a good introduction to Southern Rock. If you buy this album from this site you will also get an MP3 copy as well, so you can download and listen to that whilst awaiting the physical album to arrive.

This is for my money - and not too much of it, either - the best Allman Brothers CD out there, bar none.
Over 78 minutes and fifteen mostly glorious tracks, you get the more commercial songs (some of them US hits - amazingly they had not one in the UK) plus a few of their trademark blues workouts, on which Duane's guitar licks shine through, as well as those of Dickie Betts.
For me at any rate, where this scores above any of their studio LPs or their famed Live at the Fillmore is that it has just about everything you'd want, while what you don't get is the rather aimless long-windedness of the elephantine, overrated Fillmore tracks, which tend to go on forever without really getting anywhere musically. There's plenty of blues here, but it's concise and punchy, which was the Allmans' calling card, rather than long, too often bloodless blues ramblings. (You may well not agree, but I wonder how often fans actually play all of Live at the Fillmore.)
I've got a thing for Southern rock, and the Allmans were trailblazers in that genre of the music. No way could these guys have come out of the West or East Coasts.
The whole shebang kicks off with two of their great signature tracks: the uptempo, errantly joyful Ramblin' Man, and the irrepressible instrumental Jessica. Then we get two welcome blues numbers, including the exciting Whipping Post, then it's the marvellous Dreams, and it doesn't let up till the last couple of tracks, which are less memorable, but otherwise fine.
Gregg's wonderfully slow-burn Midnight Rider is of course here, as is the lovely Blue Sky by Betts.
The compilation is programmed perfectly - so many aren't - with the blues numbers interspersed with the catchier songs, and there's a decent booklet with notes and a few pics.
It's called the Essential Collection, and for once they're not wrong.

And I ain't gonna let him catch me, no
ain't gonna let him catch

Make an allmans cocktail - take two parts rock , add a generous slug of country , one part blues and a dash of jazz . Guaranteed to blow your socks off . This is a superb compilation . All the great tracks are here and there is no need to buy the individual albums . Great value for three quid .

As a greatest hits collection, or as an introduction to the Allman Brothers, this can't be bettered. all the best known tracks are here, clean sound, good bass extension, but slightly recessed treble which doesn't spoil the music in any way.

If you know and like the Allman Brothers, you probably have these tracks. If you don't, this is a superb introduction to the best of their music. Recommended.

I bought this because I am a fan of southern rock and this band is the essence of this genre. Still sounds fresh.

Wanted to give the Allman Brothers a try, seeing as I have nothing from them. It's not bad. Still prefer Lynrd Skynerd and the Grateful Dead.
