The Allman Brothers Band hit their commercial peak in August 1973 with the release of Brothers and Sisters.

It was the band’s first album without Duane Allman and Berry Oakley and included their new keyboardist Chuck Leavall. The album went to number 1, where it stayed for five weeks, and spawned the hits Ramblin’ Man and Jessica.

For the fortieth anniversary of its release, Island/Mercury are releasing special editions which include a remastered version of the album, previously unreleased rehearsals, jams, outtakes and live performances.

UMe Chairman and CEO Bruce Resnikoff said of the release “Brothers and Sisters documents a band reinventing itself and finding a new direction after a traumatic loss. The two deluxe editions, through these previously unreleased rehearsals, jams and outtakes, offer a priceless glimpse inside that creative process.”

The deluxe two-CD edition of Brothers and Sisters includes the original remastered recording as well as previously unreleased rehearsals of Wasted Words, Trouble No More, One Way Out, I’m Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town and Done Somebody Wrong; outtakes of the instrumental Southbound, Double Cross and Early Morning Blues, as well as the brand-new archival find, A Minor Jam.

The four-CD set includes two discs devoted to a live performance at the Winterland in San Francisco, Sept. 26, 1973, right after Brothers and Sisters’ release, featuring an introduction by Bill Graham and previously unavailable live versions of Done Somebody Wrong, Stormy Monday, Midnight Rider, Statesboro Blues, You Don’t Love Me (which includes Amazing Grace), Les Brers in A Minor, Blue Sky, Trouble No More and Whipping Post, along with two Brothers and Sisters tracks in Come and Go Blues and Jessica.
