Recorded at Capricorn Sound Studios, Macon, Georgia and The Record Plant, Los Angeles, California between February and July 1975. Originally released on Capricorn (CP-0156).
While not exactly on par with such classics as 1969's THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND or 1970's IDLEWILD SOUTH, the Allman Brothers' 1975 release, WIN, LOSE OR DRAW, at least demonstrated that the band was still together, despite a two-year layoff between albums.
Unquestionably the record's highlight is the album-opening cover of Muddy Water's "Can't Lose What You Never Had," but other cuts such as the instrumental "High Falls," the title track and "Nevertheless" also prove to be standouts. Longtime fans could sense trouble brewing behind the scenes, and their instincts proved right--the Allmans would take a three-year sabbatical after one more album, the live WIPE THE WINDOWS.
