Product Description

DICKEY BETTS was one of the main men in the true legendary line-up of the ALLMAN BROTHERS.What makes this album extra special and unique is the members of his band at the time!Basically it's GOVT MULE,with WARREN HAYNES on lead rhythm and slide guitars,backup vocals and lead vocals on time to roll.On drums from the MULE,MATT ABTS,who also provides backup vocals on a couple of tracks.Another special guest on percussion,BUTCH TRUCKS.Ignored at the time of release(1988)this is now an essential purchase for fans of Southern Rock,Jam Bands,and followers of GOVT MULE.

Format: Audio CD
This album, by former Allman Brother Dickey Betts, was a hard to locate item for fans when it came out.After the second break up of the Allmans in 1982, Betts had found it hard to get a recording contract as Southern Rock was eclipsed by disco and synth musak.
His rival in the Allmans, Greg Allman, was still recording, but the sum of the parts didn't really make the whole.

Around 1988 Betts put together the band that plays on "Pattern Disruptive" recruiting Warren Haynes (Gtr) and Matt Abts (Drms) both of whom are now in Govt Mule, Marty Privette (bass), and Johnny Neel (keyboards).
After touring roadhouses and clubs, a record deal was forthcoming, possibly prompted by another shift in musical tastes as well as the rush to re-issue vinyl back catalogue on CD (cf the boom in jazz interest/sales from 1987 until 2000).

This little gem, akin to a core sample of live club music of the time, was the result.There's Southern Rock, there's blues, and there's the "stuff you/stuff it" edge that makes Dickey Betts the Bovril of this genre.
The twin guitars of Betts and Haynes challenge each other, and bring out the best from Betts.Haynes, as his later work with the re-formed Allman Brothers and Govt Mule will attest, is no slouch either.
The songwriting and vocals are shared between Betts, Haynes and Johnny Neel.

There was no follow up album. Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts ditched their own bands and joined Butch Trucks and Jaimoe in reforming the Allman Brothers Band to record and tour from 1989.
No-one from the Gregg Allman Band made the cut, but Warren Haynes and Johnny Neel ( 1 album only) joined from the Dickey Betts Band.
The Allmans are still touring in 2010, although Dickey Betts has moved on, but it was "Pattern Disruptive" that brought him back from amongst the musical dead.

Clearly Richard Betts has released some fabulous music but this is awful: bland heavy rock : avoid like the plague!

Duane's Tune is worth the price alone! 26 Oct. 2000
By Robert S. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Now I am what one would call an Allmaniac. All things Allman are sacred to me, so this review may be slightly biased. Seriously, I bought this album when it first came out and I played it until it bled. Dickey Betts has lined up a tremendous outfit and together they bring about some very tasty music. Warren Haynes pushes Dickey to new levels of playing and it quite obvious on Rockbottom and Duanes Tune. Matt Abts' drumming is incredible, and Johnny Neel brings some nice vocals to the table. If your in to Jambands and Southern Fusion than this recording is for you.

An important album 5 Oct. 1999
By D. McDermond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This should be heard just for the fact that it was 3 parts future Allman Brothers (Betts, Warren Haynes and Jonny Neel) and 2 parts future Gov't Mule (Warren, again and Matt Abts). And it serves as a blueprint for the 90's rennaisance of the Allmans sounds as well as what was to come of the Mule.

80's Rock 12 Aug. 2002
By Rick Tharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really like this record, but it's not at all what you would expect from Dickey Betts. There isn't a trace of country in the entire album, and only a hint of blues. Instead, this record is pure 80's power rock. If you remember how guitar rock sounded in 1988 (when this was recorded), you will appreciate this record.

If you are expecting another country-flavored "Highway Call", or some straight-ahead Allman Bros blues, forget it, this record will disappoint you. But if you enjoy hard rocking guitar, this record features two of the best in Betts and Haynes.

One more reason you may be interested in this record... I believe this is one of the earliest recorded pairings of Warren Haynes and Matt Abts. They, along with bassist Allen Woody, would later form the power-trio-jam-band, Gov't Mule.

The Dickey Betts Band "Pattern Disruptive" 4 Oct. 2009
By William J. Forsythe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
An excellent example of one of the original guitarists from the Allman Brothers
doing what he does best which is writing songs, singing and playing guitar. It's been more than 20 years since this album was released and it still has the freshness
and raw bluesy sound which echoes throughout each track, a true masterpiece.....
The Allman Brothers are sorely missing a creative force without Dickey Betts.
A must CD for the true southern rock fan, from "Rock Bottom" to "Far Cry" and
"Duanes Tune" to "Lover Man" this project is hard to beat......4 stars
