500 Greatest Songs of All Time
The Allman Brothers Band, 'Whipping Post'
Writer: Gregg Allman
Producer: Tom Dowd

This anthem was written on an ironing board in a darkened Florida bedroom by Allman. Punctuated by Duane Allman's knifelike guitar incisions, the song is best appreciated in the 23-minute incarnation on At Fillmore East.
