The Allman Brothers Band Where It All Begins on Limited Edition 180g 2LP w/ Etching
The Allman Brothers Band's signature mix of down-home groove and instrumental virtuosity, blues-drenched soul and guitar-driven rock, and dedication to all-night jamming, laid the groundwork for what became known as the Southern Rock movement. The band rewrote the rulebook on how rock guitarists could play together along the way, and laid the groundwork for every two and even three-guitar band that would follow in their wake.
After breaking up in 1981, the Allman Brothers' four surviving original members - Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe - reunited for a 20th anniversary tour in 1989. 1994's Gold certified Where It All Begins marked the band's fourth post-reunion release and second to last studio effort to date. It would also serve as the band's last with Betts.
Recorded live-in-the-studio with producer Tom Dowd, the line-up is rounded out by Warren Haynes (guitar, vocals), Allen Woody (bass) and Marc Quinones (percussion), and finds the band as tight as ever offering up muscular latter day gems like "All Night Train," "Back Where It All Begins" and "No One to Run With." First ever vinyl release complete with beautiful etched artwork.
