The very important news piece today centers around the upcoming reissue of Brothers and Sisters, the 1973 classic Allman Brothers Band album recorded after the death of Duane Allman, and Berry Oakley.  This album contained seven strong tunes including “Ramblin’ Man”, and “Jessica”.  On June 25, Mercury Records will re-release a remastered set in several formats that include a 4CD Super Deluxe Edition Set, a 2CD Deluxe Edition Set, a single CD edition, and vinyl LP.  Also being made available are DD versions of all three CD  Editions.  That brightened up my day; hope it did the same for you.
