LOL, Effie. You had me for a sec-a 1972 review. Well, some reviewers think their job is to tear down things to stand out from other reviewers. I also see this happen every time a newspaper gets a new sports columnist etc.

LMAO!!! If I went by all the concert reviews in my local newspaper I probably would have stopped going to shows years ago. They rip just about everyone.

I'm looking for the tapes of those Atlanta shows in '68. Harvard must know something the rest of us don't.

quote:
Barry Oakley's bass playing has always been solid, but this album shows, especially in his solos, that his sense of rhythm is much better developed than his sense of melody. He will probably continue to develop as the group grows, but he will amost certainly never be able to reach the heights that Phil Lesh or Jack Casady do.
WHA?????
quote:
One of the continuing puzzles about the Allman Brothers is their lack of effective use of the two drummers. Most of the time the two seem to be doing the same rhythmic patterns, and as a result the duo is not much more effective than either one would be playing alone.
HUH??????
quote:
Gregg Allman's vocals are strong throughout the album, but his organ solos more often detract then add to the instrumental jams.
Oh no you didn't!!!

Effie - either you get it or you don't and the folks that wrote this 'review' definitely fall into the latter category!
