Music of the Week — March 4, 2007

The Allman Brothers Band: The Allman Brothers Band

No, I have not been listening to this album. Yes, I have kept pretty well to my liturgical/devotional music-only plan for Lent. But I'm not yet prepared to write about any of those works, so I'll take this opportunity to feature some music that I don't have to listen to, because my opinion of it solidified long ago.

This is the best blues-rock album ever made. There are many subjects upon which men of good will may have differing opinions, but this is not one of them. The only reasonable and permissible argument is that some combination of live tracks from At Fillmore East and Eat a Peach might be as good. Not better. I have spoken.

I don't understand how AMG could give Idlewild South five stars and The Allman Brothers Band only four and a half. Life is full of little mysteries.
