Gems In Their Catalog

The Allman Brothers Band didn’t just become a story of success but also a story of resiliency. Losing core members would have been enough for other groups to throw in the towel and go their separate ways career-wise but not ABB. They picked up the pieces, moved on, and paid tribute to their fallen members every chance they got.

Here are their underrated songs in every album.

18. One Way Out (2004) – “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin'”

Their studio versions were great but on stage, that’s where the magic truly happened.

17. The Allman Brothers Band (1969) – “Black Hearted Woman”

From the intro to the vocals, it’s spectacular.

16. Wipe the Windows, Check the Oil, Dollar Gas (1976) – “Wasted Words”

It’s the kind of song that sticks with you.

15. An Evening with the Allman Brothers Band: First Set (1992) – “Southbound”

Makes you think how lucky that audience was.

14. Peakin’ at the Beacon (2000) – “It’s Not My Cross to Bear”

It’s a next-level performance.

13. An Evening with the Allman Brothers Band: 2nd Set (1995) – “Soulshine”

As expected, they delivered the goods on live stage.

12. Where It All Begins (1994) – “Temptation is a Gun”


11. Brothers of the Road (1981) – “The Judgement”

Criminally underrated and we don’t know why.

10. Brothers and Sisters (1973) – “Pony Boy”

Takes you back to the ’70s.

9. Shades of Two Worlds (1991) – “Nobody Knows”

Clocks in at over ten minutes and glorious from start to end.

8. Idlewild South (1970) – “Leave My Blues at Home”

One of their best works, for sure.

7. Seven Turns (1990) – “It Ain’t Over Yet”

This was overshadowed by the title track and “Good Clean Fun”.

6. Reach for the Sky (1980) – “Famous Last Words”

An absolute gem from the album.

5. Enlightened Rogues (1979) – “Try It One More Time”


4. Hittin’ the Note (2003) – “Instrumental Illness”

Showcasing the band’s brilliance.

3. Eat a Peach (1972) – “Stand Back”

Just as awesome as the more popular tunes on the LP.

2. At Fillmore East (1971) – “One Way Out”

Their performances at Fillmore East truly reigned supreme.

1. Win, Lose or Draw (1975) – “Sweet Mama”

An essential Allman Brothers Band song.
