5.0 out of 5 stars Brothers, Sisters, Babies and Jeremy Clarkson, 4 Aug. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brothers and Sisters (Audio CD)
This cd represented a change in direction for the Allmans. With Duane Allman no longer around, the decision was taken to stick with Dickey Betts as a lone guitarist and to bring in Chuck Leavell on piano. Two on drums, two on keyboards and one on guitar. Sounds weird, huh?

The music is the real change of direction, with Dickey taking a bigger role in the writing and the vocals. Net result is that five of the tracks have a country/blues feel to them. The exceptions are tracks 3 (a bit Supertrampy) and 4 (more Greg Allman bluesy). The country ones are the ones I prefer.

Track 6 (Jessica) if you didn't know is the theme music for Top Gear (or was until they replaced the Allmans version with something horrible, modern and tinny).

And track 7 is a great one for getting my baby son to sleep. I can sit him in my lap and tap my hands to the music on his thighs, and he's gone. Totally sparko! But I'm not telling the missus my secret.

All in all, an excellent album. I rate it above Eat a Peach and just below Beginnings and the Fillmore.

Dangermash got it wrong in his/her review. Track 6 of The Allman Brothers Band album Brothers & Sisters is entitled Jessica and not Melissa as stated. The latter is a fine acoustic guitar instrumental which appears (as far as I know) on the album Eat a Peach

Good spot ironbird. I've made the correction. But you've blundered too! Melissa is on Eat A Peach but isn't an instrumental. I think you're thinking of Little Martha (...?) which is that jaw droppingly beautiful acoustic instrumental on Eat A Peach. Oh, and just in case anyone's in any doubt, it's Jessica (on this album) that the Top Gear theme is based on.
