I only started listening to the Allman's in 2003 and my first purchase was a cheap compilation, which initially left me very disappointed. Somehow it kept finding it's way out of the drawer and before long it was played constantly. Since then i've bought another 14 ABB albums.
Hittin' the Note is like no other. It offers heavy blues, swipes of jazz and funk, small tinges of country (nowhere near as country as the Dicky Betts sound). It's an album that i have to sit down and listen to, every instrument is perfected yet so on the nerve each time.
Surely no-one could ever say that Gregg Allman doesn't "feel it" when he sings, Warren Haynes' vocal efforts are also outstanding. Warren and Derek are chopping and sliding all over the fretboard, and Oteil's bass playing is as smooth as i've ever heard.
It's tiring just to listen to all the way through, but goes full circle, it completely satisfies, a truly unique musical experience. "Eat a Peach" and "Fillmore East" are widely perceived to be the most popular ABB records, but i rate this one right up alongside them. It's so vast that you hear new sounds on every listen, and i won't even begin to pick a favourite track. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

When the Allman Brothers started back in the late 60's - their first albums right up to 'Brothers and Sisters' particularly the live Filmore albums stood out. Fans like myself heard tracks with such incredible 'fire' and 'energy' that no other band could match. The live albums took the famous tracks such as 'Elizabeth Reed', 'Jessica', and more recently 'Back where it all Began' - to even greater heights. I mention these tracks on purpose because they were all written by the the less than amicably removed but talented Dickey Betts.
Many of us wondered what next ? Can the band survive.
It's really the new line up, and change of attitude that has saved the band and catapulted this band to 'today'.
Make no mistakes this album is a classic.
This is a revived band with a unique line up of jazz, blues and rock & roll roots.
A revived Gregg Allman - has passionately written some great new songs such as Desdemona & Instrumental Illness - as good as any the Allmans have ever written. Vocally - he's there.
Derek Trucks - Superb gifted guitarist, melodic, sophistcated player young, right attitude - sensible.
Warren Haynes - great old school guitarist (of Gov't Mule)- not just a great player - he's done a tremendous job producing this album. His input has been significant.
The two original drummers are still paying as well as ever, superbly helped with Marc Quinnones (precussion) and Oteil Burbridge (bass).
The combination of exceptional songwriting, unique musicianship and a band that is now playing together in the same direction - stands out.
The band has deliberatly made a statement with this album :
"We are still here and we are as good as ever"
'Hittin the note' is more than a nice surprise - it's the best Allman's studio album for 30 years.
Great for any fan to add to their collection,
or for anyone new who wants to hear great music.
Check this album - and it's sister dvd out - recommended !

It's a rarity for me to review - this may be a first, can't remember. Also, I find that one man's meat can often be another's poison and I've had one or two bum steers from these reviews. However, I am driven to write one for this as I have never played an album so often after the first hearing as this one - or at least not since I bought the Beatles' first LP, Please Please Me, as a boy.

Derek Trucks I knew but to my shame I had not previously been aware of Warren Haynes. This man is a titan of the guitar. Greg Allman is in fine voice and Derek's dad continues to drive the rhythm section ably abetted by three others. It would be invidious to try and highlight tracks as they are almost all quite riveting. This is more than a reprise of the old AMB, it is a renaissance. Quite brilliant.

Up to now, my Allman Brothers collection has been restricted to the usual core set (ie everything up to Brothers & Sisters) and this is my first venture outside that comfort zone.

And I'm staggered by the quality of this album.

The guitar work by Messrs Trucks and Haynes is out of this world. Greg Allman's organ is always there in the background, shifting tone, setting the mood. And the bassist is (in good AB tradition) lively rather than just setting a dull beat. The album is great to play in the car but works at its best with headphones on. Everything is carefully arranged so that Warren Haynes comes in on the left ear and Derek Trucks on the right. And you start to identify how each member of the band has his own part to play in each track. It's gobsmackingly good.

As many people have said, Derek Trucks has a similar sound to Duane Allman in his guitar work. Some people think that this makes the current lineup sound like what the Brothers would have evolved into had Duane (and the original bassist, Berry Oakley) still been around. I have some sympathy with this but what holds me back from 100% agreement is that Haynes seems to have the role of senior guitarist - in tracks where everybody gets a solo, Haynes is the one who gets to finish things off. If Trucks were to do this, that would be more consistent with the old lineup, where Duane would be last under the spotlight.

Number one track for me is Heart of Stone. The Stones one will never be the same after the way the Haynes and Allman hit that part of the brain that wants to cry at the end of Rocky II. Instrumental Madness deserves a mention too - some great work by Haynes on that.

Next for me must be some 90s Allmans and/or some Mule.
