First Set was one of the first albums I got when I made the transition from vinyl to CD. The 1980s had not been good to the ABB, or jazz, blues and rock in general, so I did not expect much. Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts had produced some respectable albums in the 1980s, but they didn't get much notice. Also, I had just listened to The Fillmore Concerts, so First Set had a hard act to follow. But I was pleasantly surprised. No, Fillmore II it's not. But at the time Dickey had been quoted as saying 'this is the way the ABB is supposed to sound', the addition of Warren Haynes on guitar and Allen Woody on bass making the band sound more like ABB I. We even get Thom Doucette on harp. First Set includes some new songs, plus some old classics, with a good range of material. I saw the ABB at Red Rocks in 1998 after Warren and Allen had left the ABB for Gov't Mule, and Jack Pearson was on guitar, and Oteil Burbridge on bass. The opener was John Hammond, Jr., backed by Little Charlie and the Nightcats. So it was kind of like old home week. If you haven't been to Red Rocks, go!

Brothers & Sisters, courtesy of Dickey Betts, brought a shift towards more of country sound for the ABB, though we saw this before with Diickey's Blue Sky, and Gregg Allman's Midnight Rider. Also, apparently one of Duane Allman's inspirations for the twin harmony guitars was the fiddles in Western Swing music. The shift led to complaints by some that the ABB was moving away from its blues-rock roots, but we still saw plenty of that in concert, With the deaths of Duane, then Barry Oakley, many wondered if the ABB would even carry on. But it did, recruiting Chuck Leavell on piano, and Lamar Williams on bass. The choice of a second keyboard player, rather than than another guitarist, made sense at the time, as there were likely few guitarists who would have wanted to be thrown into to Duane spotlight. And Chuck and Lamar were good players, so no problem there. They also contributed to the jazz element of the ABB, which Jaimoe had pushed from the start. In fact, ABB II spun off Sea Level, with its own jazz fusion elements. So the ABB was not fundamentally changed and, even with more country sound, Brothers & Sisters shows all of the ABB's elements. Treat yourself to the 40th anniversary 4-disc set for some interesting outtakes, jamming, and two live discs.

Shades Of Two Worlds is the second CD I bought (in a used shop) in my transition from vinyl 20 some years ago. Now (2014) people are going back to vinyl. The first CD I bought was The Fillmore Concerts boxset. The 1980s had not treated the ABB well. It had not treated jazz, blues or rock in general well. So I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I liked the sound of Shades. I recall a quote from Dickey Betts around that time saying 'this is the way the ABB is supposed to sound' With Warren Haynes and Allen Woody on board, it sounded more like the original ABB. Obviously, they could not recreate the magic of ABB I, but produced a series of good albums. If you like the ABB's original blend of blues, jazz and rock, you should like Shades. Some tracks are stronger than others, but overall a good effort.

I don’t harbor resentment against the 21st century edition of The Allman Brothers Band. In fact, I have a lot of respect for any musical entity that can still draw a crowd over four decades after their inception. Especially one that has endured the tragedies and upheavals they have. Due to the untimely deaths of two of their founding members occurring barely a year apart in the early 70s I was amazed that they were able to carry on at all. Being a realist, I knew they’d never again be the highly-influential group they were when Duane Allman and Barry Oakley were still with us and their 1973 album, “Brothers and Sisters,” confirmed my suspicions that those two gifted artists were the principal key-wielders who routinely unlocked the room where the group’s jazz/rock tendencies lived. That record sold like hotcakes so it wasn’t their popularity that suffered, it was the intrinsic uniqueness of their sound that fell to the wayside. That’s where I lost interest in them and the direction their more-commercial musical intentions were headed. They knew they’d carved out a lasting and profitable niche in rock & roll and they would’ve been fools not to take full advantage of the situation. They had a fiercely loyal fan base that would buy tickets to their concerts every time they came through town and, besides, with Duane and Barry gone what other options did they have? Not ones to look a horse in the mouth when he had a gift for them, they accepted their role as torch bearers with dignity and, despite the rocky internal relationships that tore them asunder more than twice, they managed to keep patching it up and made it into the new millennium with the surviving quartet still in the fold.

My darling wife is one of their legions of followers who don’t give a smelly poot as to how much of a jazz component they retained or lost over the years. She just likes their music and I’d be the last one to criticize that uncomplicated viewpoint. She and thousands of others continued to buy their albums whether they were studio creations or live recordings, helping to sustain an ongoing livelihood for The Allman Brothers Band and giving them validation for their artistic endeavors. I admire that fealty and recognize that there is, indeed, something special about the group else they would’ve faded into oblivion long, long ago. When I gave multiple listens to her copy of their “Shades of Two Worlds” album from ’92 recently and then reviewed it accordingly I gave it very low marks. Not because it’s terrible (it’s an above-average blues/rock record) but because there’s hardly a trace of jazz to be found. In approaching “An Evening with the Allman Brothers Band – First Set” I knew from a glance at the song lineup that this was taped while they were touring in support of that CD so I pretty much knew what I was in for. What I was objectively curious about was how they presented their aging catalogue tunes that hailed from their glory days.

“End of the Line” is the curtain-raiser for this show. No jazz on this sucker, just straight-ahead, bludgeon-your-brain-to-a-bloody-pulp, southern-styled heavy rock and, if that’s your meat and potatoes, you’ll love it. Next comes a faithful performance of their country/rock classic from the “Eat a Peach” LP, “Blue Sky.” In many ways the guitar work by both Dickey Betts and Warren Haynes is smoother than on the original studio track but they stretch it into an eight and a half minute exercise in axe-grinding that becomes tedious. “Get On with Your Life” follows and it’s a down and dirty, slow blues number that contains no variations on the basic theme except when they mimic their stellar version of “Stormy Monday” from 1971’s historic “…At the Fillmore East” album by briefly jumping into a jazzier swing feel for Gregg Allman’s Hammond B3 solo.

They take on a subtler approach for their bluesy rocker “Southbound” and it works well in the early going until they turn it into just another “boogie jam” wherein the two guitarists slug it out with each other ad nauseum. Being a six-stringer myself for most of my life, I enjoy a good head-cutting duel as much as the next guy but neither one of these boys is Duane Allman if you catch my drift and I got bored after a few minutes. Yawn. The all-acoustic “Midnight Blues” is okay for a change of pace moment but I have a low tolerance and appreciation for traditional blues and this simple ditty does little for me. An unplugged rendition of Gregg Allman’s beautiful song, “Melissa,” is next and they wisely don’t do anything to spoil its charming innocence. I personally prefer the studio version because of the band’s funky looseness on the track that sets it apart from most ballads but this ain’t too shabby.

“Nobody Knows” has the aura of old-school Allman Brothers that I continue to miss but the tune’s composition just isn’t up to par when all is said and done. The pseudo “Whipping Post” groove they settle into for the extended guitar-heavy instrumental segment is effective and very intense but there’s not enough imagination involved to hold my attention for its over a quarter of an hour run. I guess you had to have been there. Their resurrection of Gregg’s “Dreams” from their debut album is without a doubt the jazziest thing on the bill. What sticks out is the tightness of the double drum set onslaught from Jaimoe and Butch Trucks combined with the fiery percussion supplied by Mark Quinones. I’m happy to report that the overall presentation by the ensemble does the number a respectable amount of justice even though Haynes’ slide technique pales in comparison to that of the legend he replaced. They close with a nearly note-for-note reproduction of “Revival” from “Idlewild South” that only makes me nostalgic for their golden age when you never knew what these fellas might do next.

One positive aspect I found along the way is that both Gregg and Dickey have managed to keep their distinctive singing voices in fair shape and, at least in ’92, they sounded approximately the same as they did two fifths of a century back in time. On the stages they graced while assembling the cuts for this album they give their audience what they shelled out their hard-earned cash to hear and, therefore, there are no shocking or overly exciting moments to be had. They are seasoned professionals that know exactly what they’re about and how to deliver what’s expected of them and there’s no shame in doing either or both. But anyone with a leaning towards jazz who craves the inherent energy found in spontaneous improvisation even in a rock motif (the kind the Allmans used to excel at) will find this concert recording too patronizing and unremarkable to sit through more than once.

I was an avid fan of The Allman Brothers Band at the beginning and I, like so many of their followers, was crushed and heartbroken over the tragic deaths of Duane and Barry. I didn’t think there was any way possible for them to continue to remain in the vanguard of American jazz/rock and, upon hearing their overly conservative “Brothers and Sisters” album, I knew I was right. Those two original pieces of the puzzle were impossible to replace and the drug-induced and ego-driven infighting that became legendary in the annals of rock & roll history reduced the organization to an on and off touring act that had very little impact on the music scene. I never bought another record by them but I heard some of the cuts from the various studio LPs they put out in the late 70s and 80s here and there. I always hoped that somehow they’d recapture their original spirit and knock me out like they used to but the pedestrian material they were content to produce just made me sad because the magic was long gone. My faith in them disappeared into vapor.

My beautiful wife, on the other hand, continued to adore them and went to their shows almost every time they came through Dallas. (This was years before we met, by the way.) I’m cool with that. I have no problem with people liking them at all. Different strokes, ya know? The reason I even brought her loyal affection for them up was to explain why I’m in a position to review their 1991 release, “Shades of Two Worlds.” It belongs to my dearly beloved and, upon discovering it buried in her stack of dusty cassettes, I felt it was my duty to investigate it for any traces of jazz and report my findings accordingly. It’s pretty much what I expected from them yet I can reveal that, to my surprise, there are actually some jazzy loose threads still hanging around. Not many, mind you, but some. And that’s more than I anticipated. Perhaps their weary routine of breaking up, getting back together, breaking up and getting back together again had inspired them to try to resurrect that unique aspect of their sound.

They charge out of the stalls with “End of the Line,” a powerful, boisterous southern-styled rocker. It demands your attention but if it wasn’t for Gregg Allman’s charismatic voice it could easily be mistaken for a track by any one of dozens of other loud, in your face groups. There’s nothing special about it. “Bad Rain” is another strong, rowdy number yet this one is a bit more involved structure-wise and has an ambience that vaguely reminds me of their early 70s attitude. Both Dickey Betts and Warren Haynes turn in gritty guitar solos with gusto. “Nobody Knows” is even more of a throw back to their roots with its forceful, driving 6/4 swagger making waves. During the expansive instrumental section Gregg’s Hammond B3 growls appropriately and Dickey reprises his signature repeating-pattern guitar licks as the band generates gigawatts of energy behind them. They then quieten down for a spell where Warren presents a respectable imitation of Duane’s guitar mannerisms before building up to another peak. After the final verse Betts and Haynes axe-duel all the way to the concert-like huge ending. At eleven minutes in length this really took me back to the old days when they let it all hang out and I thought at that point this album might turn into something revelatory. Maybe they were going to be rebels again.

Not. “Desert Blues” is more of the standard-fare south-of-the-Mason/Dixon line rock; this time with a bluesy edge that I thought was passé in the 90s. This could just as well be a ZZ Top song with big, fat guitars galore and it’s the sort of stuff that doesn’t take a lot of writing acumen to concoct. Good ol’ boys and girls live for this stuff. “Get On With Your Life” follows and it’s a large helping of typical, slow beer-joint blues presented with an aggressive mien. I acknowledge the attraction that many otherwise extremely intelligent folk have for “da blooz” but I’ll never completely understand it. I’m bored by the constricting, formula-bound limitations that genre must adhere to. It does nothing for me and neither does this tune. “Midnight Man” is next and, yes, it’s yet another gigantic dose of steam locomotive Dixie rock & roll that has no intentions of even pretending to possess a speck of finesse. It might be me. Perhaps I’m just too long in the tooth to endure this kind of aural beat-down anymore.

Thank God for “Kind of Bird.” It’s the glimpse of jazz I mentioned a few paragraphs back. Betts and Haynes kindly wrote this hot instrumental and for eight and a half minutes you can close your eyes and imagine Duane and Barry smiling down on them from the ever after. The composers perform a sparkling harmony guitar melody line together while Jaimoe and Butch Trucks lay down an electrified shuffle as if it was 1971 again. They even toss in a few segments containing entertaining riffs set in odd but intriguing time signatures. A lengthy, messy free-for-all that’s nostalgic in an old-school, “Mountain Jam” sorta way leads to a clean, tight ending. This delightful number proves they still had it in them, they just chose not to go there very often and that’s a shame. They close with the Dobro-heavy Delta blues of Robert Johnson’s “Come On in my Kitchen.” It’s well-recorded and all but I just can’t get excited about it. Might as well be authentic polka to me. The gospel chorale swaying behind Gregg provides the only bright spot in the mix.

If this was a rock & roll site I’d tell you this is a darn good album. The guitars blaze, the drums roar and the vocals rasp throughout and the cavernous production gives it an arena feel that brings the music alive and right into your living room. But if you’re yearning for the spontaneous jazz improvisations and adventurous mindset that made their first four LPs so spectacular and innovative then you’d be better off pulling out your worn copy of “Idlewild South,” lighting a few candles and reminiscing. Those Allman Brothers have inherited the wind and aren’t coming back. This particular lineup seemed determined to come up with material their ticket-buying audience would go nuts over, not bold sounds that would expand their horizons. Personally, I think they underestimated them. With the exception of “Nobody Knows” and “Kind of Bird” this has nary a hint of jazz and those two cuts aren’t enough for me to recommend “Shades of Two Worlds.” Case closed.
