Recorded during the venerable American institution's creative peak, this is an all-but-ideal single disc compilation. With all the hits (including Greg Allman's solo "Midnight Rider"), it also contains studio versions of most of the concert favorites, including the epic "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed."
Interestingly, for a group that first made its mark as a contemporary blues band, not much of the material here is blues per se, with "Whipping Post" being the obvious exception. This well-chosen collection demonstrates that the Allman Brothers have always been stylistically eclectic, with elements of jazz, country, soul and gospel grafted onto their basic blues-rock template.
