[REVIEW] Allman Brothers Band Nov. 15 @ Palace Theater, Albany, NY

It was strictly business on Monday night when the Allman Brothers Band took to the ornate confines of the Palace Theater in Albany -- as intimate a venue as an ABB show will get.

After recovering from a liver transplant earlier in the year, a healthy Greg Allman was at the helm and Warren and Derek were back to their epic guitar battles, trading solos on Allmans' classics like Statesboro Blues, Dreams, Trouble No More, Nobody Left To Run With Anymore, Hot 'Lanta and Southbound (encore).

The peaks of the night, however, came when they laid into the blues numbers. As is customary with Allmans shows these days, the boys payed homage to their blues heritage. With scenes of blues legends flashing on the screen behind them, the boys scorched their way through covers of Freddie King's Woman Across The River, Robert Johnson's Come Into My Kitchen, and the highlight of the night, a soaring version of Elmore James' oft-covered The Sky Is Crying.

The veteran jammers displayed their mastery at its highest level, all while steering the energy higher and higher and never letting it come down.

Sure, I'm a little disappointed we didn't get Clapton's Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad? But most wishes came true Monday night.
