Here Dickey takes his venture into country a step further, where he started off with Blue Sky, Ramblin' Man and Pony Boy with the Allman Brothers Band. As a sole leader he can finally and truly make that genuine country-album he has been longing for. And it is one of the most authentic and joyfull albums I can think of.

This album goes hand in hand with Brothers and Sisters and Laid Back by Gregg Allman. All three albums are essential for Allman Brothers-enthousiasts. It shows the diversity of the Allman Brothers-universe. Add to that the debut-album of Sea Level, wich explores more the jamband/fusion-side of the spectrum.

All in all this album features some of the finest guitarsolos of Dickey (named Richard here) and has beautiful artwork and an even more beautiful fold-out poster.

The production is very good and clear, thanks to Johnny Sandlin and Sam Whiteside.

A very nice album, though it's a country recording and not a rock or southern rock one. I'm not into country, but I find it's a nice listen with solid songs; Dickey Betts has always been a great composer and this is one of his best efforts. All the musician are incredible and they play superbly. "Hand Picked" is spectacular.

Recording quality is OK; bass guitar is a bit muffled and the choirs are not perfectly rendered, but all in all very enjoyable. The disc is thin, typical 70s pressing, and this may be detrimental to sound. I think this album would greatly benefit from an heavy weight, 100% analogue audiophile reissue.
