The Allman Brothers Band was the major instigator of the Southern-rock genre of the '70s and one of the major rock acts as well. After the death of bandleader Duane Allman in 1971, the band re-grouped behind Gregg Allman (organ and vocals) to begin work on Brothers and Sisters. Tragedy struck again after the work on this album had begun with the death of bassist Berry Oakley, who appears on only two tracks. Bassist Lamar Williams joined the remaining members -- Chuck Leavell on piano, Richard (Dickey) Betts on guitar and vocals and Butch Trucks and Jaimoe on drums -- to complete the 1973 release of Brothers and Sisters, the group's fifth album, which included the #2 single "Ramblin' Man." Brothers and Sisters, produced by Johnny Sandlin and recorded at Capricorn Sound Studios in Macon, Georgia, reflects the new configuration of the group, and has a more structured, less "jam-oriented" pace.
