The Allman Brothers Band: Gregg Allman (vocals, piano, Hammond B-3 organ); Dickey Betts (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars); Warren Haynes (vocals, guitar, slide guitar); Allen Woody (bass, fretless & 6-string bass, background vocals); Butch Trucks, Jaimoe (drums, percussion, background vocals); Marc Quinones (congas, percussion).
Recorded at BR Ranch Studios, Jupiter, Florida.
This live-in-the-studio set isn't the Allman's best album of the '90s--that honor goes to the groundbreaking SEVEN TURNS--but it is a thoroughly solid effort with some inspired moments that play off the band's traditional strengths. Among the highpoints: "No One to Run With," which plays its all-my-rowdy-friends-have-settled-down theme against a ferocious Bo Diddley beat; the title song, which features the most inspired dual-guitar work on the album; and "What's Done is Done," a straight-ahead blues shuffle (harking back to the band's first album) featuring one of Gregg Allman's most assured vocals.
