G-Money Picks: Allman Brothers - Brothers and Sisters

G-Money (@777GMoney) speaks... we listen. In the March Madness edition of G-Money Picks, we're going back, way back, with the Allman Brothers Band. Tough period for them because they lost two band members to tragic accidents. Brothers and Sisters was recorded in late 1972 and released in early 1973. It was the first album without Duane Allman, who had died in a motorcycle accident in October 1971 (rumored that he had a collision with a peach truck). This album included bass player Berry Oakley before he passed away from a motorcycle accident in November 1972. Eire coincidence, Oakley's wreck occurred a few blocks from the intersection where Duane crashed.

Brothers and Sisters has several classic Allman tunes like Ramblin' Man, Jessica, and Southbound. The opening track is my favorite... Wasted Words.
