The Allman Brothers: Seven Turns

Edwin Pouncey, Vox, October 1990

LAST YEAR'S EPIC DREAMS boxed set satisfactorily covered the full history of these good ol' Southern boys and their particular brand of rock 'n' blues.

These sort of reunions usually end in disaster, but happily Seven Turns avoids sounding like just another rematch.
