The Allman Brothers

Greatly Appreciated




Missing Links by Link Protrudi and the Jaymen is an unusual album in that Side 1 is at 33 rpm, and Side 2 is at 45 rpm.  I know of only one other such album, a retrospective album by the Allman Brothers Band simply called The Allman Brothers.  This was a release by the band's label Capricorn Records in the UK as an introduction to the Brits by one of America’s best.  In this case, Side 1 is a few early songs by the band and is at 45 rpm, while Side 2 is the side-long performance (at 33 rpm) of “Whipping Post” as taken from their live album, At Fillmore East.  The latter might be the Allman Brothers Band’s best known song, at least among those familiar with all of their work.
