There isn't an ABB song out there I dislike, I love each and every one. But in everyone's opinion, which ABB song is the most underated? By underated I mean the best song that gets the least attention.

Hey Chris, I think anything off of Where It All Begins is underated. That is one awesome album IMO. I love EVERY song on it. I'm going to have to listen to it tomorrow at work. I love the part in All Night Train when the guitar sounds like a freight train coming(right before the first solo). Actually, the very beginning sounds like it too, and continues right through the song in the background. Speaking of underrated......MARC QUINONES. I love what he brings to the Brothers. He adds a unique sound to their music that I don't think anybody else has today.
If you listen to WIAB, Peakin', and 1st and 2nd sets, SOTW, his percussion work is loud and clear. It's very prominent, but at the same time very subtle. If you took it out, to me it would be very noticeable.
But back to the topic, other than what I mentioned above, I would also put in Don't Keep Me Wonderin', Hot'Lanta, Nobody Knows, End of the Line, True Gravity, Good Clean Fun, and Shine It On(great guitar work in that song that nobody ever talks about).

Yes, All Night Train, love that tune!! Nobody Knows....and Kind of Bird. They could play just these three songs one night and I would be happy. Seems like these gems are performed few and far between.

Just Another Love Song from '75, and Maybe We Can Go Back To Yesterday, from '80. Also, Gambler's Roll from 7 Turns.
I'd like to see the Brothers do a whle show of underrated or not-often-performed songs like these. Like Keep On Keepin' On -- I like that one. Or Crazy Love. I always loved Enlightened Rogues, but now I's starting to like stuff from the next two, Arista albums. Or Nevertheless, from W,L or D. They also haven't performed Wasted Words in many years, that I'm aware of.

"Stand back" wasn 't played live for a long time if at all during the 69-76 line up. Duane's slide replacing a horn section is just great. Allways thought someone should cover it, like lowell george when he was around. Butch sat this one out and allowed jaimoe to do his thing. This one needs to be played loud!!!!!

"It ain't over yet" from seven turns caught the contemporary adult format programers sleeping. That song should've made the rotation at any fm easy format. The J neel leavel like piano, is alone worth the listen.

Okay, here's an underrated song:

Walk Like a Man

They only played twice in 2000. It was a new song Oteil wrote for the band. I talked to Oteil about it last summer and appearantly the band wasn't into it, so they ditched it and Oteil's recorded it for his new solo album. A big shame, as it was a great song for the band. As far as other songs:

You Can't Lose What You Never Had

(I wish Gregg would have just written new words to this, as the music is NOTHING like the original Muddy Waters song)

Nevertheless
All Night Train
Kind of Bird
Leavin’
Everyday
Low Down Dirty Mean
I’m Not Crying
It Ain’t Over Yet
Just Ain’t Easy
So Long

Oh yeah! I forgot Pegasus & From the Madness of the West. In fact I always wished they'd mix those two in with the rest of the regular instrumental rotation. That would be cool.

I think two of the new ones- Desdemona and The High Cost of Low Living are underrated- but when people here the new versions of these songs, they'll get 'properly rated' REAL quick. Peace. --Marley

I agree about "The High Cost of Low Living" & "Desdemona". Those are great songs. And I also feel that once the album is out, all the tracks will get recognition from the fans.

Nobody Knows
Soulshine
No One to Run With
Back Where it All Begins

If you have to listen to any radio station you would think the entire discography was underrated, except Ramblin Man. That seems to be the only one ever played.

Without a doubt, Gambler's Roll. Warren tears that song a new one. And one that doesn't get a lot of air play, at least not in my area is Don't Keep me Wonderin

Radio stations here seem to play the old standbys (Jessica, Melissa, Statsboro Blues) but once in awhile I'll hear "No One To Run With"..which is *one* of my favorites..but it's hard to have just one favorite song...

I've always loved Wasted Words, and only hear it when I spin the Brothers and Sisters CD. I have never heard it live, although I understand there are some 70's shows out there where it is played. Was that on Wipe the Windows, etc.? I'll have to pick that up someday. I rarely see the song mentioned here, and I dont' think it's been played live at all in recent years.

Well, that's my vote for my favorite underrated song.

You guys crack me up with talk about "air play." An ABB tune on the radio? Up here we get way too much Jessica and Ramblin' (you'd think they were two-hit wonders), and that's about it. Maybe a Blue Sky once in a while, and a Melissa once in a great while.

Don't forget Midnight Rider. There's nothing I like more than hearing a two-for-Tuesday combo of Midnight Rider and Ramblin' Man...every single time without fail. It's better than no airplay, but the songs are both 30 years old and the ABB has plenty of other memorable material. Peace. --Marley
