The Allman Brothers: Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollar Gas

Lester Bangs, Circus, 14 February 1977

I MAY BE DEFICIENT but somehow I feel grateful for the existence of this Allman Brothers album. Unlike the sodden Win, Lose or Draw, which apparently wasn't the band's fault anyway, this one really signals the end of an era, and even if we can't shed proper tears, we know their like will not come this way again.
