THE ALLMAN BROTHERS Seven Turns SPV/Yellow (2008)

Allman Brothers

Originally released back in 1990 this album marked the first studio album by the band since the early 80's and was spurred on by the success of a recent box set 'Dreams'.

For a band built around extended jamming there is only one song on this album topping seven minutes, the instrumental 'True Gravity' which tends to lose its way musically in parts. However the title track is a classic slice of southern rock, featuring sterling guitar from Dickey Betts and Warren Haynes. Easily the best song on here and even if you don't own this album go download this tune.

Elsewhere 'Let Me Ride' shows the blues side of the band and 'Loaded Dice' is a nifty bar room rock 'n' roll song.

A solid set from the band showing their blues and southern rock side more than their jamming and jazz rock side that comes out more on their 70's releases. No bonus tracks on this re-release but you do get informative sleeve notes and it has been digitally re-mastered.
