Product Description

Review

This pot-stirring oral history reads like a backstory of how musical lightning comes to be. All of the surviving band members get to have their say. --Rolling Stone Alan has a way with narrative that just draws you in without using the single-level storyline used by other writers who have attempted telling the Allman Brothers Band's story. He gets right to the hows and whys that give his narrative real substance. Enjoy and become enlightened. --Butch Trucks, the Allman Brothers Band (From the Foreword)No journalist knows the ins and outs of the Allman Brothers Band better than Alan Paul. --Warren Haynes, the Allman Brothers Band I learned so much reading One Way Out. If you want to know the real deal, read Alan Paul. --Oteil Burbridge, the Allman Brothers Band Allman Brothers, unvarnished . . . [Alan Paul]'s vast trove of interviews allows the band to tell its own story. --Atlanta Journal Constitution. Alan Paul is one of America's foremost experts on the Allman Brothers Band. For the past twenty years, he has written informative, comprehensive articles on the band, and he truly understands the essence of their significance. It's great to see him release this chronicle. --E.J. Devokaitis, Curator / Archivist, Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House. Alan Paul's One Way Out is a brilliantly detailed all-access pass to the Allman Brothers Band. Using his numerous personal interviews with the band members themselves--both past and present--as well as an almost endless entourage of friends, family members, roadies, managers, promoters, booking agents, record label executives, and fellow musicians, Alan Paul has successfully created the definitive ABB biography. Randy Poe, author of Skydog: The Duane Allman Story. One Way Out is perhaps the most in-depth look at one of America's most beloved, but thoroughly dysfunctional ensembles. Engrossing reading . . . Alan Paul has written about the Allmans for the last 25 years, --Various --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

"One Way Out" is an exhaustive oral history by insider Alan Paul of a band which occupies the prime place alongside the Grateful Dead in the annals of American rock. Alan Paul has been an ever present chronicler of the band over 25 years and on the evidence of this book if Greg Allman had spoken to a Greyhound bus driver he would have undertook a follow up interview. This history tracks the band from its early inception when two young brothers, Greg and Duane fought over the only guitar in the house in Daytona Beach in Florida where they had moved following the desperate murder of their father Willis Turner Allman in Nashville. Tragedy stalked the siblings from the outset and went on to define their band. Paul's book sets out there early days as the Escorts, the Allman Joys and lastly Hour Glass. Their record label Liberty wanted the US version of Gerry and Pacemakers but the band eventually opened for the Doors and Buffalo Springfield.

Inevitably in the early part of the story it is the Duane Allman one of the greatest musicians to pick up a guitar who dominates the book. He was already a brilliant session man in his early 20s. In 1969 the classic Allmans line up was formed Duane and Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and Jai Johanny Johanson. By the time of their third album 1971's legendary "Live at Fillmore East" captured the band in New York as arguably the best live rock act in the world with Duane Allman and Betts leading the guitar frontal assault. The $1,250 dollars they earned per show saw them triangulate that signature sound which Paul describes "as a rock n roll band playing blues in the jazz vernacular...

Finally a complete warts and all account of the greatest Southern Rock band in the world.The author mixes narrative with interviews to give a chronological account of the rise and fall and rise and fall and rise of theband from 1969-2013.
While I knew a lot about the years up to 1992 it is the subsequent period where this book excels.So you hear about Dickey and Woodys confrontation including the infamous knife incident, Greggs equivocation,how Warren tried to hold everything together until with Woody he tired of it all and left to pursue his Govt Mule project.You hear about how Warrens replacement the great Jack Pearson had to leave because of tinnitis"Jack said he was finding it too loud I said I dont know how long I can stand it but I aint turning down" Dickey Betts.
I coud go on but believe me there is something for everyone and you will read and re read this one.

This will be enjoyed hugely by any fan . I particularly liked the section in which Dickey talks , very eloquently ,about his and Duane's approach to playing together . I also like the fact that his enormous contribution to the ABB is treated with a little more respect than in some other books - including Gregg's . Whatever his issues along the way he is clearly rather more intelligent than some would have us believe - a great read .

Of course there is only one way out. They know it and we know it. This is a lovely book starting at the beginnings in the sixties. I still remember buying the first album back in 1969. Remember that was the age of Woodstock, CSN etc. Back then it was not considered hip buying southern rock. This book contains a lot of material and inside-interviews. Nobody seems to holding back or anything. All lovers of the ABB will no doubt love this book and read it again and again.

The Allman Brothers Band has been together for 45 years, and it is expected that they will finally be calling it a day this year. It is a miracle that they have managed to survive so long, given all the tensions, and the problems with drink and drugs that existed, and particularly because two of the main founding members died within the first couple of years, just as the band was starting to take off.

This book tells the story of the Allman Brothers from the start, right up to the present. It is an oral history, based on interviews with band members, management and crew members. It has been seamlessly put together by Alan Paul, and reads very smoothly. It probably tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the Allmans, and will be of great interest to fans of the band. And, of course, the emphasis is always on the music!

The full storey in chronologically arranged quotations. Contradictory versions of various stories are both presented allowing the reader to see both perspectives.

It is bang up to date and contains many previously unseen photos.

A very good read.
