Highway Call [Remastered] ~ Richard Betts
Highway Call [Remastered] ~ Richard Betts
5.0 out of 5 stars The Ramblin Man Returns, March 12 2014
If you've ever wished the Allman Brothers had released a purely country album, then Dickey Betts' Highway call is for you. It always struck me as a little ironic that the Allman Brothers' most iconic songs (Ramblin' Man, Blue Sky, Jessica) would lead the casual listener to believe that they were a country band, which they certainly were not. On Highway Call, however, Betts is finally freed from the blues rock leanings of the Allmans and is able to let his talents loose on the country album he was born to make. This is truly a tour de force - country music at the height of artistry.
