Nearly half a century has passed since the Allman Brothers Band released their ground-breaking eponymous debut album on Capricorn Records in 1969. Combining elements of blues, rock, jazz and country, the Brothers forged a unique sound that emphasized virtuoso guitar playing, powerfully emotive vocals and deft, inspired group interplay and improvisation.
The Allmans were the spearhead of the nascent southern rock movement, which quickly grew with acts like the Marshall Tucker Band, Wet Willie, Charlie Daniels, Elvin Bishop, Lynyrd Skynyrd, .38 Special, the Outlaws and Molly Hatchet.
