Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: The Allman Brothers Rated 2nd!

The sophomore release from America's sovereign Southern rock band, the Allman Brothers Idlewild South is easily their greatest studio album. Unlike the band's labyrinthine live shows, which are distinguished by their immense, walloping swamp rock, this album focuses on the considerable songwriting capabilities of Gregg Allman and Dicky Betts. Showcasing the original lineup, before multiple tragedies began taking their toll on the band; the lightning slide guitar of Duane Allman, the vocals and Hammond B-3 of his brother Greg Allman, lead guitarist Dickey Betts, bassist Berry Oakley, and the thunderous drum tandem of Butch Trucks and Jaimoe Johanson this album lays bare their talent for weaving disparate but distinctly Southern elements of rock, gospel, soul, jazz, and R&B into a cohesive and original whole. The legendary Tom Dowd oversaw these sessions, which resulted in the Bible-thumping "Revival," the smash hit "Midnight Rider," the dirty blues of "Don't Keep Me Wonderin'," the soul-soothing "Please Call Home," and "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed," which would go on to become the penultimate Allman Brothers' concert war-horse.

"Guitars, bass, and keyboards have terrific textures, vocals have a fine clarity, and the two drum kits snap with a satisfying sense of weight." - Wayne Garcia, TAS February 2008

"Idlewild South is an unqualified sonic success. Those qualities included great soundstaging and being largely free of the solid-state hardness typifying many recordings of this generation. Upper octaves are a little softened but cymbals sound like cymbals, not mangled pieces of metal... Overall, Idlewild South is fairly transparent with a great feeling of liveness." - Myles B. Astor,, Issue 49
