The Allman Brothers Band issued its self-titled debut in 1969, but it stalled on the lower half of the Billboard 200 despite the presence of “Whipping Post,” a song that would later become a classic-rock staple. The Allmans went on to issue albums at a quick pace and scored their first hit with 1971’s At Fillmore East, a double-live LP recorded at the fabled New York City venue. It went platinum and heralded a streak of popularity for the band, which included the albums Eat a Peach (1972, released after Duane Allman’s death the prior year), Brothers and Sisters (1973, a Number One album), Win, Lose or Draw (1975) and Enlightened Rogues (1979, their last Top 10 full-length). They would go on to issue several more studio, live and archival LPs through 2016. Here’s a look at the band over the decades.
