Brothers and sisters : the Allman Brothers Band and the inside story of the album that defined the '70s

Paul, Alan 1966- (author.).

Summary: "New York Times bestselling author Alan Paul's in-depth narrative look at the Allman Brothers' most successful album, and a portrait of an era in rock and roll and American history. The Allman Brothers Band's Brothers and Sisters was not only the band's best-selling album, at over seven million copies sold, but it was also a powerfully influential release, both musically and culturally, one whose influence continues to be profoundly felt. Celebrating the album's 50th anniversary, Brothers and Sisters the book delves into the making of the album, while also presenting a broader cultural history of the era, based on first-person interviews, historical documents and deep research. Brothers and Sisters traces the making of the template-shaping record alongside the story of how the Allman Brothers came to the rescue of a flailing Jimmy Carter presidential campaign and helped get the former governor of Georgia elected president; how Gregg Allman's marriage to Cher was an early harbinger of an emerging celebrity media culture; and how the band's success led to internal fissures. The book also examines the Allman Brothers' relationship with the Grateful Dead--including the most in-depth reporting ever on the Jam at Watkins Glen, the largest rock festival ever--and describes how they inspired bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, helping create the Southern Rock genre. With exclusive access to hundreds of hours of never-before-heard interviews with every major player, including Dickey Betts and Gregg Allman, conducted by ABB archivist, photographer and "Tour Mystic" Kirk West, Brothers and Sisters is an in-depth, honest assessments of the band's career, history, and highs and lows"--
