Stand Back: The Anthology (2CD)

The Allman Brothers are one of America's all-time great bands. From the late '60s to the present, through tragedy and lineup changes, and despite the shifting sands of music trends, this mighty Southern rock-blues outfit has endured. More than that, while other behemoths of yore have been content to become latter day curiosities, playing summer tours at second-rate venues and leaning heavily on 30-year-old material, the Allman Brothers continue to release stunning albums and perform live at as high a level as they ever have.

Stand Back: The Anthology, captures all that history and crystallizes the sheer talent and durability of the band. The 32 tracks, spread out over two discs, exhaustively covers the high points from the group's entire career -- some 35 years. From their eponymous 1969 debut disc, through classic albums such as Idlewild South, At Fillmore East and Eat A Peach, right on up to the spectacular 2003 "comeback" album Hittin' The Note, this is pure magic.

The highlights of the album are the super-tight, team-play musicianship -- which is consistently so, despite the lineup changes -- and Gregg Allman's made-for-the-blues voice. As for tracks, take your pick. There's the pure blues of numbers like "It's Not My Cross To Bear" (this one smokes!), the fantastic fusion of virtuoso pieces such as the majestic "Whipping Post" (which has been one of the band's live standards through the decades), the down-South emotion of "Midnight Rider" or their classic version of Blind Willie McTell's "Statesboro Blues" from the Fillmore East set, with the late Duanne Allman's slide guitar weepin' and wailin'. And that's just a sampler from the first disc.

Disc two features songs from 1972's Brothers and Sisters and up through the present day. "Ramblin' Man," written and sung by guitarist Dickey Betts, remains the band's most hook-laden song (it was a No. 2 hit in 1973). A great melody and catchy rhythm, it's a feel-good, sing-along number that doesn't compromise on the musicianship for the sake of pop appeal -- the twin lead guitar lines are still in place. Fans will love hearing again the lively instrumental "Jessica," the dangerous swamp-funk and blues of "Can't Lose What You Never Had," the soaring piano ballad, "Win, Lose or Draw," and the down-home spiritual sound of "Just Ain't Easy." Proceedings culminate with the band's newest classic, "High Cost of Low Living" from Hittin The Note.

And making the album just that much better, the songs are in chronological order, the credits are comprehensive, and the liner notes and packaging (including photos) are top-notch.>P>Stand Back is one of the most comprehensive "greatest hits" albums ever released. Many such albums -- for licensing or other reasons -- tend to have gaps or lean too heavily on certain periods in a band's history. But this one gives you the evolution from then to now, and the magic pulses from every track. Not to be missed.
