V.A. - Midnight Rider: Tribute To The Allman Brothers Band (2014)
One of rock s biggest genre bending jernauts gets their due tribute by an eclectic group of country, rock, and blues legends on this very special release! Features energetic new covers of the group s classic hits Midnight Rider, Ramblin Man, Whipping Post as well as one of the most famous instrumental songs in all of rock music Jessica and more! This 12-song collection, helmed and herded by Florida guitarist John Wesley, features new performances of some of the band’s classic songs, including “Midnight Rider,” “Statesboro Blues,” “Ramblin’ Man,” and “Whippin’ Post” done by a host of guitarists and singers, Ronnie Earl, Debbie Davies, Eli Cook, Eric Gales, Pat Travers, among them. It's fine as a tribute, but only underscores how influential and unique the Allman Brothers Band always was. Nothing tops the ABB versions of these songs, which really should come as no big surprise to anybody.
