The Allman Brothers Band Win, Lose Or Draw on 180g LP
1975 Album Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Kevin Reeves & Cut on Copper Plates Using Abbey Road Mastering's Direct Metal Mastering (DMM) Lathe!
Nine essential Allman Brothers Band albums, spanning 1969 to 1979, have been remastered from the original analog tapes for reissue on audiophile quality 180g vinyl in July 2016 by Mercury/UMe. They include: an expanded 2LP edition of The Allman Brothers Band; Idlewild South; At Fillmore East; Eat a Peach; Brothers and Sisters; Win, Lose or Draw; Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollar Gas; Enlightened Rogues; and the 3LP debut of Live At Ludlow Garage 1970. The albums have been remastered by Kevin Reeves to 192kHz/24-bit audio and cut on copper plates using Abbey Road Mastering's Direct Metal Mastering (DMM) lathe. All nine LP packages feature faithfully replicated original album artwork.
The Allman Brothers Band's fifth studio album, 1975's Win, Lose or Draw directly followed in the wake of the critical acclaim of its excellent predecessor Brothers and Sisters (1973) and growing tensions between Gregg Allman and Dickie Betts who both released solo albums with The Gregg Allman Tour and Highway Call respectively the year prior. The recording sessions were fractured and it's certainly palpable all over the 7-track effort, yet a strong cover of Muddy Waters' "Can't Lose What You Never Had," Allman's title cut and Betts' instrumental "High Falls" prove that the band may be doing things differently but they weren't throwing in the towel quite yet.
