generation of new
Rating: A-In the 9 years between Where It All Begins and Hittin' the Note, the band released An Evening With the Allman Brothers Band: 2nd Set (1995), which like the first set is good but inessential and at times redundant (its best song is probably an unplugged-styled rendition of “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed”), and Peakin' at the Beacon (2000) (the band have become annual mainstays at New York City's Beacon Theater), which is pretty weak. In between those two albums, Haynes and Woody left to devote all their energies to former side project Gov't Mule. Oteil Burbridge replaced Woody (who died in 2000), and Jack Pearson replaced Haynes for a couple of years before he was replaced by the far superior Derek Trucks, Butch's nephew and yet another ace slide guitar player. Sadly, founding member and longtime musical leader Dickey Betts was dismissed from the band in 2000 (via fax no less!), allegedly due to excessive alcoholism. He was briefly replaced by Jimmy Herring, who couldn't cut it, so in 2001 Haynes agreed to come back (so technically Derek is now Warren and Warren is now Dickey!) and the lineup since then has been set. Got all that? Anyway, as for this particular album, it's really good but not without its problems. The main problem with this album is its length, as seemingly every song has to exceed 5 minutes, and as spectacular as the playing often is, it's not always dynamic enough to hold my interest for 75 minutes (this is the band's first studio album that significantly suffers from cd-era length). Really, many of the compositions, nine of which were co-written by Warren (his role having increased without Dickey) and five of which were co-written by Gregg, are pretty generic, but the band's superlative playing lifts otherwise average blues rock tunes such as "Firing Line," "Woman Across The River" (a Freddie King cover)," and "Rockin' Horse." "Maydelle," with its lame, hard to overlook lyrics ("I can't break your spell Maydelle"), is the only song here that I don't care for at all, but not every song seems absolutely necessary, either, or at least they would’ve come across better had they been shortened or positioned differently. For example, the melodic 12-minute jazz-rock instrumental "Instrumental Illness" is enjoyable on its own, but appearing as it does so late in the album this impressive effort doesn’t seem to warrant such an extended showing (exhaustion having already set in). A pair of earlier epics, "High Cost Of Low Living" (7:52) and "Desdemona" (9:20), more than earn their long lengths, however.
This is a great recording. Buy it and play it often.
Best Album by the group since Win, Lose, or Draw.
