The Allman Brothers Band

November 4, 1969 ~ The debut album from The Allman Brothers Band is released.

Legendary rock writer Lester Bangs called the album “consistently … subtle, and honest, and moving,” describing the band as “a white group who’ve transcended their schooling to produce a volatile blues-rock sound of pure energy, inspiration and love.”

Everything changed after that first listen. It remains my favorite from The Allman Brothers Band.
