Allman Brothers Two-fer: Ramblin Man (1973)/Jessica (1973)

     I have always appreciated the Allman Brothers, but with some age and perspective it is obvious how for a short time they were the best band in the world, and arguably the best US band of the 70's. The material recorded with Duane was at sometimes downright stunning. The death of Allman and bassist Berry Oakley would have put a lesser band out to pasture, but the rest of the group led now by Dickey Betts to put out some great work that was popular with critics and on the charts. Ramblin' Man is by far the highest charting single, reaching #2 in August of 73. Jessica is one of my favorite songs of all time so including it here....
