The Allman Brothers Band’s Brothers and Sisters to Be Reissued

Mercury Records will reissue The Allman Brothers Band’s classic 1973 album Brothers and Sisters this summer in honor of its 40th anniversary. While little information has been made available, it is expected that the release will be available on June 25.

An article in The Morton Report states that the album will likely be remastered, and that it will be be released in a number of formats like a four-CD Super Deluxe Edition, a two-CD Deluxe Edition and a single-CD edition. There will also be a vinyl reissue, and the aforementioned CD releases will also be sold as digital downloads.

The original Brothers and Sisters consisted of seven songs, including “Ramblin’ Man,” “Southbound” and “Jessica.” The album was the first that the band recorded completely after the death of guitarist Duane Allman, and most of it was recorded after bassist Berry Oakley’s passing. No word yet on what material will make up the reissue’s second, third and fourth discs.

Dickey Betts can use the royalties, maybe The ABB will return Ramblin Man to their live shows. Does anyone remember Les Dudek?.

Dickey Betts still makes money off the ABB to this day and his net worth is more than all of them put together. He carried them long enough and deserves it!
