One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band by Alan PaulThis oral history of the Allman Brothers Band has been culled from hundreds of hours of interviews, all conducted by award-winning author and journalist Alan Paul, of Guitar World magazine. Interviewees include band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Jaimoe, Butch Trucks, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Chuck Leavell, Jack Pearson, Jimmy Herring, David Goldflies, and the late Allen Woody; plus Eric Clapton, Tom Dowd, Phil Walden, Billy Gibbons, Dr. John, and many other band friends and associates. One Way Out is the most complete exploration of the Allman Brothers music yet written, tracking the bands career from its 1969 formation through its historic 40th-anniversary star-studded Beacon run, right on up to today. Filled with musical and cultural insights that only these insiders can provide, it includes the most in-depth look at the acrimonious 2000 parting with founding guitarist Dickey Betts; an intense discussion of Betts and Duane Allmans revolutionary guitar styles; and thorough behind-the-scenes information on the recording of At Fillmore East, Layla, Eat a Peach, and other classic albums. You will not find this information anywhere else. The book also includes a highly opinionated discography with short reviews of over 50 albums, plus a bonus list of essential Southern rock albums.

The Allman Brothers Band were one of those groups whose music infiltrated the musical landscape. Still, it was pretty easy to ignore it when I was younger. Of course, the generalization is wildly inaccurate. On the surface, the Allman Brothers Band may invoke jaded images like that, but upon closer inspection this is music more closely related to the blues and even jazz at times than rock. While the older material may not be the most challenging for such a tremendously talented bassist, every note and lick oozed with evidence of his proficiency.
