Atlanta's Burning Down



"Guitarist-writer-singer Betts on his first leader LP since the Allman Bros. Band broke up and he joined Arista has delightfully distilled the finest essence of the Allman groundbreaking Southern rock style. His main innovation is to make the fluent electric picking style supported by an even lighter and jazzier rhythm base than in the Allmans' heyday. The familiarity of what Betts is playing on his liquidlike slide guitar runs and singing in his expressively plainspoken rock voice for these solidly constructed originals simply underlines what a primary role he filled in the classic Allman sound. Best Cuts: "Run Gypsy Run," "Bougainvillea," "California Blues," "Out To Get Me." Dealers: The whole LP is very much in the groove of Allman classic "Ramblin' Man," which Betts wrote, sang and played lead on."

I don't mean to pick but aren't the songs listed for Atlantas Burning Down in the review section actually on Dickey Betts & Great Southern? The web page for the discography/review section is also laid out so that reviews are available for the titles in the right column but not the left. I'm not pickin, I love the site.
