By 1976, it had been five years since the release of the Allman Brothers' breakthrough (and all-time classic) release LIVE AT THE FILLMORE EAST. With the band calling it quits, the Allmans record company decided this would be the perfect time to issue a follow-up--WIPE THE WINDOWS, CHECK THE OIL, DOLLAR GAS.
With original members Duane Allman and Berry Oakley deceased, the mid-'70s Allmans line-up was patched up by bassist Lamar Williams and second keyboardist Chuck Leavell, helping to show that the group still could work their in-concert magic. With "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" the only song from the FILLMORE release to reappear here, such post-Duane gems as "Jessica" and "Ramblin' Man" shine in a live setting, making WIPE THE WINDOWS a worthy addition to any Allman fan's album collection.
