This is, in my humble opinion, the greatest instrumental piece of the rock era (”Stairway to Heaven” fans … sorry). It has the lilt of country/bluegrass, the inflections of jazz but most of all it flat out rocks. It’s joy undercut with melancholy, it flows like a river flows, fast then slow but always true to its course.
I’ve seen the Allmans do it a couple of times, but never out in a field on a sunny summer day, which I’m sure is the way the good Lord intended it to be experienced.
