The Road Goes on Forever Review Allman Brothers Band Allman Brothers CD's

The  Road Goes on Forever review

The casual fan may be satisfy their Allman Brothers Band needs with The Road Goes on Forever. It is a two-disc compilation from their early years through Enlightened Rouges. The compilation was expanded in 2002 with bonus tracks.  It includes a great sampling of both live and studio recordings.  It is certainly an exceptional  introduction to The Allman Brothers for new listeners, and a great way to replace record collections. 

The Road Goes On Forever includes all but one track from the their debut album, more than half of Idlewood South, all but two tracks from Eat a Peach (including "Mt. Jam," which is on the expanded releases Fillmore), and all but two songs from Brothers and Sisters. Further, there are several tracks from the Fillmore East, one track from Wipe Your Windows, three from Enlightened Rouges, and a few more. Clearly an exceptional value.

The obvious complement to The Road Goes On Forever is one of the The Fillmore Concerts 

This CD includes everything from A Decade of Hits plus 14 additional songs.

In 2005 the CD Allman Brothers Band Gold was released that is identical.
